A Somewhat Familiar Letter of Proposal

I know that Earth Day was yesterday, but I figure it's never a bad time to celebrate the power of reduce, recycle, reuse, and why should paper products get all the glory? It's pretty obvious by now that whatever paper can do, the internet can do better. It's also fairly obvious that when it comes to littering my blog with posts, I've got reduce down pat. But, as a resourceful (read: lazy) blogger, I've also discovered that--with a little recycling--a year old post is still perfectly reusable. Observe:

Dear Matt Tyler Ellnnis,

I know we don't know each other very well. (Well, I don't know you very well, and you don't know me at all.) But I was hoping I could ask you something.

Even though I was very pleased with the Sabres' win over the Bruins, I'm still very wary of trusting them to keep it up. And even though I love Yo-Yo deep down, we're still on the outs because of him missing four (4!) open nets yesterday breaking all of his fingers recently.

So, I was wondering if maybe you wanted to marry me? You know, for a little while?

You played like a fox yesterday tonight, a fox that is very good at spunky hockey, and I would like to reward you accordingly.

Please circle YES, NO, or MAYBE.


P.S. This is totally how marriage works, right?
