Friday letters

And the linkyfest continues with Friday Letters! Link up here:

Photobucket

Dear cause awareness marketing people...Surely there was some way to support medical research without making our men look like skeezy 70's porn stars or Borat for an entire month. Surely.


Dear local grocery stores...Where the hell is my Indiana Kettlecorn sweet and salty popcorn?? First you took away my Doritos, then my cod sticks, now the popcorn? I want it back RIGHT NOW. Orville Redenbacher's version doesn't cut it.
Dear nature...Thank you for a beautiful, crisp fall day. It's been awfully dreary and it was wonderful to see sunshine for once.

Dear NaBloPoMo...You have no idea how stubborn I can be. I WILL beat you. I'm halfway there already!

Dear zumba...I love you. I'm so glad I can do you again.

this is not me, but it is my favourite zumba song right now

Dear digital camera...I know I dissed you but I didn't mean for you to start randomly opening and dropping out your memory card in revenge. I just want to take a clear picture of my baby's smile as soon as I press the button, not 20 seconds later when he's staring out the window. Why do you hate me?

Dear Deo perfume candy...Edible deodorant? WTF? Is there really a market for this?



Dear grandfather who took the baby-in-oven photo as a joke...I know you thought this was wildly clever and I usually have an irreverent sense of humour, but this just isn't funny. Because horrible stuff like this does happen in real life, and there's nothing funny about that at all.

Dear fellow bloggers...I'm sorry in advance if I don't return your comment. I can't comment on blogs that don't allow a name/URL login option (ie that are set to "registered user" in Blogger) and despite hours of troubleshooting and fervent prayers to the Google/Blogger tech support gods, the shunning continues.

Dear Fifty Shades casting director...Please, please do not fuck this up. Ian Somerhalder or Matt Bomer as Christian. Alexis Bledel or Lily Collins as Anastasia. Done. And on that delicious note, I'm going to bed.

Ian Somerhalder                                                             Matt Bomer
                                            

Alexis Bledel                                                                 Lily Collins

  2. OOh, good picks with Shades of Grey actors. I can't stand kettle corn, but my family loves it. It is sold at every single soccer tournament across the midwest. Sorry I can't just pack it up and send it to you.

    1. Thanks for the thought anyway! I like it partly because you can eat a lot of it for not many calories, which is rare for something that tastes so good.

  4. I saw that edible deodorant on the news last week and was completely weirded out.

    I am addicted to zumba, too. I go 4 or 5 times a week.

    1. Why, thank you. I would love to be a casting director. I wonder how you get started in that business, not that I'm going to chuck my career and drag my family off to Hollywood. I am curious though.
