New Year- Time to renew relationships

I got a New Year card from my brother and his new wife. Not one of those cards where you click a link and it starts embarrassing you at work with crazy music to coordinate with a mad bunny jumping up and down popping balloons as you take your mouse around. I can barely stand one of those as I am guilty of not reciprocating with equal fervor. But what I received was an actual physical card with a stamp on the envelope and a letter inside. YIKES!!! I hate it that my brother is on his way to being a cultured human being.

I can see that the hostility between the sisters-in-law has officially begun!

Hardu said...

m said...

the poor girl in the midst of her newly wed bliss thinks of you and you rant......only you my dear.......better call and wish them and slob all over her-no sharp tongue you hear.......

Anti: no, thankfully they didn't send any mines...though I am sure they were inclined to.

Zo: Please yaar, confuse mat kar..it took me 3 minutes of my life to figure out if NYU was a university in New York or New Year Utopia...I figured It cant be either as you don't know the meaning of Utopia and Universities are beyond your league.

invisible: Thanks. I'm just jealous that I didn't think of sending letters myself. When I start to see the lighter side of my rather heavy hubby, I would have surely arrived!

boo: Don't know if I should be worried that you are getting influenced by me.

Pompy: Shame on you too!

colours: Don't remind me of these autrocities.

amethyst: That I can take..Love you too. Just don't go and send me cards.

hardu: I know man...

m: What the heck..even you dont feel sorry for me. You know how much ever I try, I can't get myself to slob. Will a plain thank-you do, mom?

Alpha: ha ha ha ha ha... Bery Funny! :p

alpha said...

anti: I try real hard, no?

- only if you really want to start using your claws immediately- i can just see her whining to your brother- see we bother to send her a card- and she doesnt even........( here the dots could mean anything).
