An open letter to The Johns that ends poorly

Dear John and John,

Kristen wrote you a letter a while back because she was disappointed. Now *I* am disappointed, which is a state I have never been in for the 15 years I have known you, and never thought I could be in.

At the last show? Remember? When I sang along to all the songs, and wore my Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica shirt, and yelled to Flans I loved him and he told me he loved me back? You promised you'd be back in July to whisk me away.

You broke that promise.

And my heart.

And now I realize you were just trying to get me to buy your new album.

Ana Ng was treated much better.

Sorrowfully no longer yours,
~Poppy

See? I knew you were tall! Now you have it all in perspective about me being a shorty. ;)

I've seen that commercial before. I am naturally beautiful so I don't get that commercial.

(Hehehehehehehe.)

I didn't see any linkage, so I'm guessing that TMBG have announced they're not coming back to France to tour?

Poppy Cede said...

Avi, that is correct, they are not returning to France. And now I am sad. Who promises such things and takes them back?!

Kristen said...

I never expected Them to come to Cornwall, let alone Ottawa, but I see They've also declared Cincinnati dead to Them. Not the first time that's happened, but sheesh. I've spent 17 years losing my tiny little mind over Their vast genius. It's obvious They only love the fans that either live in or are willing to travel to venues within 5 blocks of Their homes.

If I were a musical genius I'd be that lazy too. I just wish They wouldn't make promises They have no intention of keeping, ya know? I'm not kidding, They promised to come back in July. Technically They still have through Tuesday to make good on Their promise, but I won't hold my breath. And besides, I'm to busy to be swept off my feet my Flans anymore. (holding up my hand at them and muttering "talk to it!")

ahem, that's *too busy...
