year in review


Dear Gentleman en route to Gatwick - Thank you for showing me how it's done. In the jump seat, with the stewardesses, cross country.

Dear X - I know you had a dream that one day you'd care for your elderly parents with video games. Let me just say, I am at a loss of words to describe noisy-breathing, compulsively throat-clearing old people demonstrating partial deafness, fiddling with a controller they have absolutely no concept of how to operate while a recorded voice berates them over and over for pathetic play. Except possibly to suggest you consider carefully similar, with the added intrigue of dementia and adult diapers.

Dear Jordan - I stand by what I said about your ethical crisis and "No Country for Old Men" as my greatest hit of 2008. I hope the job was good, and you're proud to wear your dad's belt.

Dear Jessie Jo - You have more friends than I've had in my life.

Dear Psychologist - I'm sorry for being an embarrassment. And for sucking. Thanks. Except for the mirroring. I hate it.

Dear CBC (The Hour, The National, DNTO, Q and things between), Mr Lapham, Cabinet and Acne Paper - Thank you for making my mainstream media-consuming time rewarding.

Dear D - Thank you for talking me down, several times. Your kids are lucky.

Dear Girl Least Likely To - I feel lucky to have gotten to know you some this year.

Dear Factory Supervisor - I believe that you make beautiful things, and that is an important thing to do.

Dear Super Editor - I hope one day I'm tougher. You are.

Dear Cats: This is for you.

It is nice to write to the people here not only to remember those who passed in the mist.
