Dear Parent Trap (the Lindsay Lohan version, not that that’s important), Let me get this straight: the basic plot of this movie is that identical twin sisters meet at summer camp and trade places, so that each can meet their previously unknown biological parent and scheme to get them back together. WHAT. So these two … Continue reading Dear Parent Trap
Dear O The Oprah Magazine Cover Girl Oprah, I don’t know if you remember this — in fact, I’m almost positive you don’t — but I was on your show once. Well, not in person, but a photo of me was. Even better, it was my fat photo, and my face was blurred out. It … Continue reading Dear O The Oprah Magazine Cover Girl Oprah
Obviously, I could write a doozy of a list about ways that 2016 sucked. But I’m too sad about Bowie and Prince, and too mad about the witless f*cking cocksplat to talk about them any more. This year, I attended a Life is Good Children’s Foundation event called Art of Optimism. It was, as the name … Continue reading Ten Ways 2016 Didn’t Suck

Hanging the exposed citrus fruit in the window? I … Continue reading Dear Wegmans’ Catalog Designer
Dear McDonald’s restroom toilet paper dispenser, WHY? Please give me one good reason why you were wet. And with what, pray tell, were you wet?! Actually, don’t answer that. I’ll just put my hands under the Xlerator until my skin is blown off and hope that my new skin is passable as human. Gross. Natasha Continue reading Dear McDonald’s restroom toilet paper dispenser
Dear Readers (Reader? Mom?), I’m super excited to be starting my new blog, where I’ll write two of my favorite things: you guessed it, letters and lists. I may also occasionally add nacho photos, but letterslistsandoccasionalnachophotos.wordpress.com was taken. Here’s why I chose letters and lists: • I love writing letters, both to people and inanimate … Continue reading A “Lister” (“Lettist?”)
