#canadawrites … and I giggle…

So, CBC Books was holding a “Break-up” contest on Twitter and they had Tabatha Southey (@TabathaSouthey) a Writer and Globe and Mail columnist as a judge.  For 12 hours (10am-10pm EST) folks were invited to basically tweet “dear john” letters.  The prize? an iPad. But, as cool as that could be, the fact is… just like the “day without wikipedia” it became something I started on a lark and then couldn’t stop 🙂 And now, just like that day, I wanted to capture my tweets here in my blog. So, without further ‘adieu’…


  • This is the end, beautiful friend…
  • Remember when I said I loved you? You can forget it now.
  • You had the key to my heart. Now it unlocks the cellar.
  • How can I miss you if you won’t go away?
  • You will find your things next to my heart. On the sidewalk.
  • If you’re still reading this, then I have to adjust my security settings.  (* I actually got an RT on this one from the judge 😉 )
  • You are a treasure. I want to bury you in my back yard.
  • I’d say you are my Valentine, but that is *SO* last year.
  • I got the message and the message is clear. Now, it’s your turn. Get. Out. Clear?
  • Started my new diet. Lost 150lbs of ugly. You.
  • See you at the airport! If I`m not there, make sure you get on the plane!
  • Let me get to the point: it’s over.
  • What do these words have in common? Finished. Over. You. End. Done. Give up?
  • I will always cherish you. From afar. Far, far, afar.
  • I keep thinking of where I found you, and if I can lose you the same way.
  • I finally understand why a Preying Mantis eats its mate.
  • Once Upon a Time, there was us… Now there is ME.
  • Hershey’s gave me Kisses, you gave me Herpes.
  • Ding Dong the Witch is Dead! Yeah, that would be you…
  • I wrote your name… on this Restraining Order…
  • The tree with our initials carved on it was struck by lightning.
  • Couldn’t tell you to your face, so I’m Tweeting it instead… Buh-Bye!
  • I’m not a Quitter, so consider yourself Fired.
  • I hope you get this note. It’s the last I’ll ever send you.
  • I’m right. You’re wrong. I’m here. You’re gone.
  • Love is on the Menu tonight. I’m ordering out. What about you?
  • Even the Superbowl takes a commercial break for entertainment. And you’re no Superbowl.
  • Remember when I said I’d love you forever? I exaggerated. #canadawrites
  • When I tell you I’m in the mood for love, your reaction should not be to ask why.
  • Letting you go was like winning the Lottery. Suddenly, life was beautiful!
  • In the PrimeTime of our relationship, I regret to inform you that notice of Cancellation has officially been given.
  • Wait, you didn’t really think I was serious, right? Weren’t you joking, too?
  • I loved you like a hurricane… but now you’re just a blowhard.
  • It’s not that I don’t love you, I just love ME more.
  • Let me lie to you… I want to stay with you forever.
  • If the door doesn’t hit you on the way out, I’d be glad to do it.
  • Don’t you want somebody to love? Ditto. Know where I can find them?
  • Did I forget to tell you I was leaving the country? Today?
  • Wedding? I thought you said ‘Bedding’. Oops, my bad.
  • Without further Ado, I bid you Adieu…
  • This is the first tweet of the rest of my life… without you.
  • Thanks for playing along! There’s a nice parting gift waiting for you!

Does get kind of hard to stop after a while… but I’m going to leave it at that – even with 20 minutes left to go. Let’s see if I can resist the temptation 😉

…aaand had to sneak in that one last “Thanks for playing along!” gag… 🙂  Ok, now I’m done.
