Dear Travelzoo,

This is a love letter. Are you beautiful? Mmmm... you're pretty but let's not be hyperbolic and say you're gorgeous. I mean, you're definitely not fugly or anything! (4 stars!) You could try a little harder but we all know that it's what's on the inside that counts.

And you have so much going for you! You're so easy to work with and it's easy to navigate our moments together. (5 stars!) Those deals! Amazing! I've taken two trips with your help and they did not disappoint! No, no they did not. They were romantic and included so many bonuses that we, a not so rich type couple, can actually afford to get out of the city every once in awhile. It's not just discounts on places to stay. There is often food involved and sometimes when you get there the hotel/inn/shelter has coupons to other nearby attractions (wineries, breweries, aquariums, etc) so you get to have the full experience. Now, I haven't taken your advice and left the country yet, but I'm working on it. If those destination deals are as good as your local ones, I'll be using your services for my honeymoon. (5 stars!)

So thank you for being YOU Travelzoo. And thank you for your daydream fodder darling Travelzoo. Love Always, Me

Rent the Runway

Rent the Runway started it all. Truly. It inspired this very website, FlitterWeb.

Here I was driving down the Pacific Coast Highway with my fiance with nary a city in sight when we happen through an area with internet connection and I get an email from RTR reminding me that my rental dresses needed to be shipped back before noon the next day. (A great reminder by the by seeing as I would undoubtably forget.) But wait. I didn't have any dresses! Did I? Yes, I did. In Chicago, hundreds and hundreds of miles away. I was SO mad! Why did my dresses arrived a week early?!?

Panicked, I insisted my fiance pull over at the next rest stop so I could call customer service and, simultaneously, pace. See, I had ordered some dresses for my sister's bachelorette party that was set for the lovely Windy City the NEXT weekend. Not this one. So what happened next, you ask? I got ahold of a customer service rep who was so INCREDIBLY gracious. Wait, what? You heard me. Gracious and helpful. Never was there any finger pointing, never did I feel like I was going to be screwed, and never has my anger deflated so quickly. We got it all worked out. Package returned, not a single cent more spent, the dresses would be returned on the proper weekend, and I was smiling as I hung up. I got back in the car and babbled about how great this company is. But how could I tell everyone else? Yelp does storefronts. What about online businesses? I can review on RTR but I wanted the whole world to know!

And thus FlitterWeb was born.

RTR has an incredible website with clean, elegant lines. It's easy to navigate and, seriously, how has no one ever thought of this before? It's a brilliant business model. And the business itself has qualities that so many other's lack. I've worked in the customer service industry for over a decade and no company has every allowed me to be this caring about it's customers. Also, previous costumers can upload photos of themselves so you can see how it would look on you. The models are gorgeous but honestly, how many of us have legs that go for days? Very few, I tell you.

Anyway, I cannot speak more highly of this company. They fixed my mistake (yes, I'm ashamed to say, it turns out the entire fiasco was entirely my own fault) and they did so happily. Now I look for reasons to rent from them.

They have a customer for life.

Dear Visual News,

Thank you. I greatly appreciate you. See, like many people today I have a social media problem. But here the deal- I catch myself. I catch myself and say, "Chica! If you're going to be on the internet for hours every day at least get something useful out of it."

And so I turn to you. You are a lovely site (which is great, given the fact that you are a project of Column Five). You are engaging, you are a teacher, and you are indeed inspiring.

I found you one day when I was working on a script and I got stuck. I searched the web high and low, until I found you. You unstuck me.

In every single facet, this website is perfect to me. And for me. And I'm sure many an artist and designer would thank you if they knew how I found them- You.

I've completely lost all respect for this news source since the Taylor Swift/Christopher Dorner coverage. It is revolting. I. AM. REVOLTED. You know if I lost my husband, who (may or may not be) a cop BY THE WAY, I would be devastated especially if he was a shining example of a motivated, community centric officer. And honestly, it doesn't matter if you have had one love or a metric ton of love or a billion gazillion loves or a smidgen of love, or one single Benedict Cumberbatch love (the best love(er)), you should never make fun of someone who has lost a love. It breaks my heart that she lost him right before Valentine's Day. Literally, that is THE day to celebrate love. You celebrate it on the street corners and dressed in pink (of course). I'm so disappointed in The Onion for attempting to destroy Mz Swift's reputation.

I WILL NEVER READ YOU AGAIN! My Dad says you are a bunch of "red bastard commies" so it's no wonder I think you're worthless.

In other words, I love you and I love that people fall for your hilarious BS over and over again. Job well done!

I think this is the least patriotic site I've ever seen. Seriously.

Where is the bias? Where is the skew? Who likes this? Republicants or Democrats or Texans? I'm so confused!

I'm going to keep using this website until I figure it out.

This woman! Well I mean, pictures depict a pretty fourteen-ish, maybe nineteen year old girl, but her voice often sounds like a 6 year old boy. It's very confusing.

And she says she's a geek. Girls aren't geeks. Or so I was told by the debaters in high school.

I feel like the wool is being pulled over my eyes because the voice truly does not match the body. If that is honestly her on the "Reel" page then I am impressed. But I have my doubts. Many, many doubts.

I actually love the new Myspace. Well done. You reinvented yourself much like JT. Who you worked with during your relaunch! .....ooooooooh

Well, it takes a little getting used to in terms of the graphics, I don't mean images. I mean the graphic tools such as the search function and what not. But once you get used to it, it's awesome. I like that it has so much information- articles, albums, singles, reviews, etc. And I love the layout. It is stylish and full of personality. Congrats.

As an Englishman I find the content not just incredibly interesting but also very fulfilling as I learn the historical origins of the words, grammar and syntax that I use - almost without thinking - every day.

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.
