Cyber

I'm in a Polish internet caf in Winton.

Tsk.

I'd like to extend caf into its proper form, but I have no idea how to recreate accents on PCs.

I miss my iMac.

I tried to use the internet in the library, but it seems, dear reader, one must be a member:

"You need two forms of ID, love. One with your address, one with your signature..."

Hopeless.

I like single sentence paragraphs.

Examples of bad grammar and spelling in Christmas cards:

With lot's of love at Xmas

Have sent your prezzie sepretly

and

Whats you doing for new year?

Outrageous.

That's too bad about the library. I just had to sign a little book on the counter and if I went over 1/2 and hour pay 50p for the next hour.

Hmmm...can't seem to sign in to comment.

I suspect I may have sent that Christmas card, or one like it.

You definitely seem like an Apple user.

XX OO Dear Minge!

Drag about the 'net. How is the weather there? We are usually 2-3 feet thick in snow. Plus 7c. Strange. How's your Mum? Back to work I must go!! xx

OmG, and I kept on thinking those marvellous sentences would only be written in Portuguese... Okay, I was mistaken...
Just a question without any second intention: aren't those mistakes obvious? My old English teacher would «get into a state» if we would ever write things like those...
Yeah, times change...
Enjoy England and its Polish café (odd idea...)
Greetings from Lisbon!

I never tolerate bad grammar. You must erase these people from your life. Oh, and it's Alt Gr + e for an 'é'.

Well, at least people are writing messages in your cards! I get cards sent to me that have people who just stamp their names with rubber stamps and ink...um, so...yah, I would take misspellings any day!

So, you're not in Kansas anymore, eh? At least she called you "love" when asking for ID.
