Fresh from the Antsaint inbox:
I feel strangely proud of this. As Jodie pointed out when she read it, "Your blog must be doing well if someone hates you."
Now, I’ll get to the sagacious comments of Jared in a moment. But I will say, that I know my blog isn’t, well, all that great. The design needs some sprucing up. I could be a lot better about a lot of the content. And those things — have a "someday" attached to them. But for now, I’m blogging as I wish.
I’m also very curious. And grinning. This email has had me grinning all day. See, it could be that I just rubbed someone so much the wrong way, that they just had to tell me. Or… it could be that they’re ripping the mickey out of me, to see what I’ll do. Or maybe it’s a sort of piss-ripping weird guy respect thing. I don’t know. Hell, it could even be my cousin Jared from Virginia (I haven’t seen him in years, so you never know — is that you, cuz?) No matter what, I’m curious.
Enough blather; it just makes my site suck more. On to Jared’s email:
"I chanced upon your site via google while looking for a pork chop marinade recipe. After a quick look around I quickly deduced that 1) you are one ugly sob AND 2) your site sucks (hence the snappy e-mail title.)
I’m writing this e-mail to make a public plea that you remove your site indefinitely for the good of the Internet at large. Unfortunately I have no personal resources to see to this myself but hopefully you will see it in your heart to do what’s right.
No, Jared, thank you. Your email has been the source of much mirth today. I hope you at least found a good pork chop marinade recipe. By the way, congratulations on your upcoming wedding, and I hope the dogs are well. Write back anytime, and please let me know how the site could be improved (though I’m afraid it will keep going).
Thanks for the email, and hopefully my site won’t suck so much in the future.
