An Open Letter to the Internet

Hello, dear. You know I love you, right? I love almost everything about you, and miss you terribly when you’re away, or when the forces of nature try to keep us apart.

I just have one teeny, tiny little request of you. Could you please… not acquire any new content for a day or two? I need a bit of time to catch up on all of the blogs, Flickr groups, forums, etc. that I love so much. It is pretty hard to do that already, and then when new stuff keeps coming in, the number of unread items in my Google Reader increases instead of decreases.

Pretty please? Then we can go back to holding hands and telling each other our life stories and dreaming about the future….
