While out doing a spot of Black Friday shopping, I browsed the stationery section of the local Marshalls. I like paper, especially stationers' pretties that just beg for the touch of a nib and some velvety ink.


On a shelf about mid-way down the display, amidst the usual floral thank yous and invitations, I found these gems.

I want to write a screed about the horrid state of contemporary social communications. I want to shake a finger at my students to say "this coil is long of you."* I want to scream and shout and rend my garments at this death knell for polite correspondence.

But really, I can only laugh at myself and my hypocrisy. I haven't sent a proper thank you card in years. Perhaps sending one in netspeak is better than not sending one at all, y/y?

*100 points to Ravenclaw if you can name the reference.
