Thank-You Card Tips, Thank-You Card Advice, And Ra'Mon's Line Of Ties: The Weekly Project Run(A)Way Hater Mailbag

I chatted recently with my former co-worker at the L.A. Daily News sports department, John Wareham, who informed me that he recently spoke to Project Runway castoff Ra'Mon. Ra'Mon, according to John, "is a super cool dude. He's very nice and might start his own line of ties with one of the actors who is in 'Surrogates' - who also confirmed that."

All great information. But personally, I was really hoping John would've gotten Ra'Mon's thoughts on someone who wrote on a hater blog about his show. And that the one who wrote that blog really thinks he would look good with a gold tooth.

Thanks for the intel, John!! But next time: Ask the tough questions. :-)

And now, here are some letters:

Another Suburban Mom writes:

A tip: Write about five cards a day and then mail them all out at once. Do not stagger the mailing because you will get passive-aggressive phone calls asking if you got the gift because so and so got one and they did not.

Also for cash I go with generous, very generous and extremely generous depending on how much they sent.

Otherwise..."Thanks for the lovely vase, however I did get one just like it. Would you mind sending a receipt so I can exchange it."

Or, you just say" "Thanks for the lovely vase, now Ramona will be able to brandish the vase at me when she complains that I never get her flowers."

All great advice, ASM. I particularly love the five-a-day thing. But let me answer your flower comment with a comment from Ramona:

He gets me flowers all the time ASM :)

Yeah, I'm that type of guy.

Amber writes:

Just get a stamp that says "Thank You", a use that on a generic blank card. Or send out a mass e-mail, even to the grandmas.

Now see: I too was pushing for sending out a mass e-mail, but everyone was shooting me down!! Why is this wrong? It's not being lazy. It's being efficient and embracing technology!! If I was allowed to send out my thank-you cards via e-mail, they'd be done by now. That's a fact.

Plus: I'm saving on paper. Am I the only one who wants to lend Mother Earth a hand?

And finally, newlywed Ivan asks for help:

I have to do thank-you cards soon as well. I'm not looking forward to it. Any advice?

Pay someone to do it for you.

You know Ivan, if you're looking to make some extra money...

Until Thursday.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm
assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
