letters to Nantoka June 17, 2005

Dear Nantoka,
Will a penny cry if you pinch it too hard?

Celeste in Louisville


Dear Nantoka,

I hear you have developed a new recipe for <loop blackberry soup loop>

It sounds strange, but delicious!

Can I get the recipe from you please? I hear that this is a budget stretching recipe.
I have three kids and I always need a way to stretch my household dollar.
Is it healthy?

Withholding my demographic data from prying eyes

Dear Withholding,
Yes, it is very healthy. It promotes good digestion.

3 domain names (freshly picked)
10 loop tags
1 can chicken or vegetable soup
1 tsp. Content ( a little goes a long way)
3 blackberry plants

Trim every bit of fat you can from the domain names.
This is the most important part of the recipe,
and it you don’t do this right the whole dinner will be ruined.
Make sure you don’t add Spam instead of Content.

Once you have finished your website, fix yourself a can of soup.
As an added treat, cook the soup on the stove, instead of in the microwave.

Then plant your blackberry plants.
Only do this if they are native to your area.
This will provide food for migrating birds.

If, on the other hand, you have no lack of blackberry bushes, be delighted: you are rich!


Dear Nantoka,

I've never asked anybody before but maybe you might have some
ideas or just 1 idea for me (if it's something that I maybe want to do),
and if it's something that you might think some people might be able to do --

What's your opinion about how somebodyor anybody might be able to get off the
hamster wheel?

(Even for just a day or two or a minute or two, if that is all that is possible),
If they truly want to that is?

This might be too simple a question or too complicated to answer,
so if I don't hear from you I'll understand.

P.S. Not that I'm necessarily on the hamster wheel; but I actually think I am.

Thanks for reading this
