Dear Boys of Yesteryear

So...I follow this awesome blog written by a girl named Elise. She does this thing called "dear boys" in which she writes notes to boys, with code names so we don't know who they are. She encourages others to take part in the "dear boys"-ing, but I've never done it because I don't know that many boys... Anyway, today was a blast from the past "dear boys" day, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

Here goes:

Dear Clueless,

Two-plus years and I don't think you ever realized I liked you. Oh, well. Over and done with, much to my friends' relief. The upside is that you were a really great friend.

 Peacefully moved on,

Dear Dark Ages,

Remember that time when you slowly moved from your side of the couch to mine? That was awkward, as were many other moments. I hope you used better moves to lure in your wife.

Enjoying the 20/20 of hindsight,

Dear Ralph,

You told me I was funny and I liked that. And I sort of miss how we used to sit near each other (but never together) in Sacrament meeting.

Sad I had to leave that ward,

Dear Cleveland,

Thank you for never coming back into my workplace (so far). You were creepy and I don't really want to explain why I never called you...

Not your type,

A Quick Note...

Hey, friends. I just thought I should throw out a quick explanation as to why I haven't blogged much as of late. The problem is that Chuck, my dear laptop, has been going downhill for a while now and he's making my computer-related life a little rough. It's quite sad, but, let's face it, it's been a long time coming. The poor guy is a double hand-me-down that started life as an inexpensive fill-in when my brother had his nicer laptop out to be fixed.

Chuck and I have made many fond memories together, but the time has come to move on. My plan is to get a new laptop with my tax return this year. I have lots of fun new ideas for my blog, but I can't really do any of them when Chuck here is slower than molasses and likely to freeze at any moment (and yes, I've done virus checks, etc.).

Anyway, just wanted to inform you all, since I know you've all been missing my cyber presence...or whatev.
