My internet has been ridiculously stupid and unreliable lately and so for a joke I've said that I will switch to RFC1149 in order to communicate with friends and family.

So, I'm considering writing a letter. A silly letter, in an old sort of flowery, formal style. You know, like... all Jane Austen...ish... lamenting my isolation due to the internet being broken and whatnot.

Help me write a silly, flowery letter full of old fashioned wankery and melodramatics. The art of letter writing may be dead, but just for shits and giggles I feel like doing it anyway.

I think I would like to send one to my dearest mother, and one to my dear friends James and Vanessa. Oh, they shall be pleased to receive correspondence from me I imagine!

Dearest Vanessa-Anne,

Oh! What tragedy has befallen me! It is truly a most terrible thing; my internet telecommunications system has undergone some most troubling problems of late. At times it is in such a state that I cannot connect to the system at all! I fear that I may be unable to talk to you, my dear, dear friend, and this makes me most miserable indeed. Oh, please, please promise me that you will continue to write to me in these darkest of hours!

I have been trying my utmost to resolve the terrible problems, however I fear that my efforts are falling on deaf ears. Oh, how terrible Telstra are to deal with! It is most vexing, and I honestly do not believe that they are concerned with my woeful plight.

Yeah, it sounds... eloquent, but it doesn't the vocabulary doesn't coincide with the subject.

It'd be funny if you actually wrote a letter in that style to the ISP complaining about your service.

If they were any true technican like me they'd either post that on their cubicle wall for laughs with their co-workers (of intelligence over most people most days) or just paper-shred it and forget about it as a joke letter.

Yeah, I don't think you'd get any progress if you write a letter like that.

I'm going for "silly", not "Old English". Besides, if I were going for old English I would include more lines like "I hath heardth that thou liketh the kips of the mud".

I'm not going to send something like this to my ISP. It's not their fault my internet is down for one thing.

EDIT: I also require more memes to draw in my illustration of the internet that I am enclosing. So far I have drawn:

xkcd
4chan
dancing banana
google
all your base
The internet is not a big truck, it is a series of tubes
HTML code
Digg
Ron Paul
lolcats
Telstra (my telephone company)
a flying cheezburger
slashdot moderation (+5 funny)
mario
weebl and bob
the send button from Outlook
me going "it can haz be internets tiem now pls?"
leave britney alone
in soviet russia, internet memes draw you
deviantart logo
aim logo
del.icio.us logo
so i herd you liek mudkips
peanut butter jelly time
omigod wheeeeee (gonads and strife)
how do i shot web?
badgerbadgerbadger
flying spaghetti monster
something awful
i'm feeling lucky
w00t
chuck norris fact


Require more. Will draw Strongbad later. A rape spider also approaches.

I was thinking I'd draw an OS-tan too at some point.
Not sure how to draw "am i doin it rite?"

I probably need a YTMND...

Also, I'm drawing the internet, not Acmlm's -- this is for a friend who doesn't visit here -- so I won't be drawing Acmlm stuff, sorry.

The picture is complete. It will be scanned in and it will be posted to the Modern Art forum. It needs to be enhanced in Photoshop for visibility mildly first (it's a bit dark when I tried on the work computer).
