Postcards From Yo Momma

This site is very funny.

Reading it makes me feel a little voyeuristic, but I haven't come across anything too terrible yet. Mostly it just makes me laugh.

My mom could have given some of the emails a run for their money back in the day. Lately, sadly, she just forwards me lame things that circulate around her office.

This inspired me to search my gmail for a good e-mail from your mom. I think this one (which she sent me when you were at Breadloaf) will do.

Hi Jane,
How have you been getting along without Chad? Have you heard from him? I don't have his e-mail address, so I can't e-mail him.

I just finished the 2 books you gave me for my birthday. I just got on Amazon and ordered the 3rd one of the series. There was a video with the author that I listened to. She is going to have a 4th and final book in the series. I can't wait to get the third one. Hard telling when the 4th will come out. I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed them. They are kind of a teen-age vampire-werewolf menage a trois. Pretty COOL!!!
Then I got online to find out when the 3rd book of the Inheritance Trilogy was coming out. You guys gave me those too; Elder and Eldest, the dragon books? I just loved those. Christopher Paolini is the young author. He still doesn't have a release date yet for the 3rd book. I have been waiting forever for it! Someone needs to tell him to grow up and finish the trilogy!! He isn't one of the authors at Chad's seminar, is he?

Anyway, just wanted to thank you again for my birthday books. I LOVED THEM!

Your, obviously very immature, Mother-in-law,

OK, and here's one from my mom, too, just for fun.
Did Dad give you an old blue bicycle? If so, can I borrow it back for a play prop? You can have it back when we are done. Thanks! I had a good time with the kids (except when [redacted] smeared one of the eggs all over the back seat!) Have a good week. Love, Mom
