I have a question for you...

Can I send you some mail?
Not like creepy ransom letters or anything.
I save those for a special few
 (Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, the cast of "Saturday Night Live," and John Goodman.)


This may seem a little odd (even for me)  but recently I've been finding a lot of joy in sending mail to people.
I love finding the perfect card and adding a little something extra inside.
Not like meth...more like a mix CD.

Yeah I know, it's 2015 and most people probably use their old cd's for coasters or mini frisbees, but I still love them.

CD making was an art form in high school and college.
It was up to you to include a solid 15-18 songs to keep your friends entertained.
It was also an excellent opportunity for you to impress said friends by belting out a high note, or proving that you were the greatest rapper alive (within the 2 or 4 doors of your car).

One of my favorite people to send mix CDs to is my friend Stef.
Here we are at her wedding...

We're close. I promise. 

I love to throw in some of my new favs she may not know, some oldies but goodies, and some terrible songs that I hope make her laugh on her longer commute home. 

Her call to me with her latest album review is also one of my favorite things. 
Sharing music is just a fun way to keep in touch with your biffs near and far. 

Knowing how much fun I have making them, paired with the fact that I recently read a YA novel (I'm 28), Eleanor & Park, where the main character made mix tapes for his awkward friend on the bus, I became inspired. 

I made a couple of playlists with different themes:

+Boy Band Jams

+TRL Jamz

+Sweatin' to the Oldies

+Hill People Music (country songs)

+First Dance Suggestions (probably not all serious suggestions)

+Modge Podge

I don't always buy the radio edit versions of songs (because I'm a rebel) so if you've got a sensitive ear--you've been warned. 

Trust that I'll include a track list with your CD. 
I don't want you getting in your car, cranking up the radio and then the sweet sounds of Ja Rule's raspy scream, scare your small child in the back. 

If you're interested in a little snail mail, email me at ohjonesblog@gmail.com and let me know:
+Your name
+ Your address
+ What playlist(s) you want

And I'll send them your way. 

Plus I'll be taking part in National Card and Letter Writing month which I love

I hereby solemnly promise not  to use your address for evil. 
I wouldn't even know how to start. 

And who knowsthis could crash and burn. 
Or it could literally lead you to finding the best song ever
See what I did there?

I'll see myself out.

  9. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
