Antiques and Fan Mail

I've had a lovely and interesting day. When was the last time you walked through the Old Melville?
I felt like I was in another country. There are so many quaint stores, coffee shops and restaurants with unique things from beads, to second hand book stores and vintage stores. It was such a lovely different day to go through all the antiques and clothes! The clothes weren't as cute as I had hoped, but wow there were some real amazing pieces of furniture and an old suit case/trunk that was spectacular. It was so old and rich in history. If only it could talk. I could have a fabulous conversation finding out about all it's travels.
It was a shocking R250. I was expecting another zero at the end for it's size and it's age, but R250 it was. I wanted to take it home with me, but it's being loaned out for a movie!
I'll have to go back and get it! I don't know what I'll do with it considering I have a modern home and these pieces (as lovely as they are) would just not go. Pity.

So, I've been doing well with my boxing and I've actually been eating properly. Amazing. No really. For me, this is something to go into the Blogshell Record book.
I am feeling lighter and I am feeling really good.
Just saying.

Oh and I thought I would share something with you. This is one of the emails I get on a daily basis. It used to be sweet that they had taken the time out to mail me, but now it is just becoming creepy. I've swopped my name for Blondie.

ummm...yup, the person seems creepy...and is great at

So you get fan mail...thats so very interesting. Must be great ego booster sometimes


po said...

Um is that English? Is that how "young" people talk these days?

Well, I gather the person appreciates you being in their life!

phillygirl said...

Pahahaha. that letter is hysterical ... I know people sometimes write like that to save space in an sms but seriously, how do you type an entire email like that ... do you think they write the whole thing and then go back and change every word into obscurity. Sounds like too much hassle to me! But amusing none the less :)

Being Brazen, LOL!! I always appreciate the fact that someone has taken time out of their day to mail me! It is so flattering and motivating to continue doing what I love so much!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

I guess so Po! It took me a while to figure it out! I must be honest!!

It's sweet and a little strange too! x

The Blonde Blogshell said... you know what is strange? The fact that this person emails me all the time and can write like an sms or write a great "proper English" email! It is thei oddest thing! I often wonder if it's the same person at all!!

Kitty Cat said...

Do you have any idea who the person is? Or is it just some random crazy fan? Well done on the good eating and boxing! You do feel better, but it only kicks in after a while - no instant results. Old Melville sounds soooo nice - so quaint. Wish I could go!

It means, "I am a scary stalker."

Wow good fan mail!

I wish I got fan mail, though I hope mine are literate ;)

My bf's little sister - she's 15 - writes like this. It's totally cool in her world. To write in proper English is to be seen as old and not with it. I read her status updates on facebook and it takes me forever to figure out what she's saying. *sigh* I don't care how old it makes me - I'm glad when I write, you can see I'm actually literate!!!
