Hooray, I’m in a better mood than yesterday.  Time for yet another random, ‘Dear… ‘ post:


Dear People Who Drive in Winter Climates,

Milkin’ it…

So I figure I can milk the whole Dear…. for one more entry, because, well, it’s fun, and I’m lazy.

I’ll blame Monday on my laziness, since it sounds better than blaming myself.

Alright y’all, here we go again….


Dear Summer,

Could you do me a favour?

Stay here all year, and I promise I’ll be your bestest friend. Forever and ever, babe.


The Cold Blooded Girl


Dear Woman on the Subway,

Who told you it was okay to wear socks with flip flops?

You look like an idiot.

I mean, socks and sandals are bad enough, but socks and flip flops?

Really, that’s wrong on so many levels.


The Girl Who Laughed at You


Dear Uneducated People in this Photo,

Why am I not surprised?

You did re-elect the biggest dumb ass of a president there ever was.


The Girl Who Judges Your Bad Grammar


Dear Time,

You are going by too slowly today. Please hurry. I want to go home, pronto and it’s only 9:06 a.m.


The Girl Who’s Leaving Work Early


Dear Larry David,

I wish I knew you in real life.



The Girl Who Needs a Show


Dear People Who Walk Their Children on the Sidewalk in Strollers,

Just because you have a child, and a stroller, does not make you king/queen of the universe.

Obey the rules of the sidewalk like everyone else, or there will be hell to pay.


The Girl Whose Foot You Steamrolled Over.


Dear People in My Office,

Have some courtesy and shut your damn door if you are speaker phone. It’s annoying.


That Girl in the Storage Closet

P.S. Guy across the hall – you are so intense, sometimes I think you will implode. Chill out.


Dear Bacon,

You are so very yummy. I love you with all of my heart.


Your Mistress


Dear Purple Shirt,

Okay ya, seriously. Stop being all Twilight Zonish <queue music> or it’s over.


The Girl Who Is Apparently on the Exact Same Schedule.


Dear Women Who Wear Yoga Pants with High Heels,


No, really.


If you had real friends they wouldn’t let you out in public like that.


The Girl Who Wonders What The Hell Possessed You To Make That Decision.


Dear People Who Argue with Me About Stupid Things That I Have No Control Over,


I’m smarter, therefore, I win.


The Champ


Dear Creepy Dude That Felt the Need to Interrupt a Perfectly Good Night,

1. Introducing yourself with your FORD Car Salesman business card is not attractive.

2. Your Sammy Davis Jr. hairstyle is sooo outdated and looks ridiculous on you.

3. You were pretty much the biggest A-hole I’ve met in a long time – and so was your loser friend.

4. ‘You have nice eyebrows’ is not a good pick-up line.

5. I don’t give a shite that no girls ever call you back, and now I know why.

6. You annoyed us so much that we actually went to another bar so we didn’t have to be reminded by your complete assholeness. Good job, buddy. High Five.

6. YOU FAIL in every possible way.


The Girl With the Nice Eyebrows


Dear Toronto,

See above letter.

It has to get better than that.

Come on. This is ridiculous. For real.

I’m not asking for much here. Jesus.


The Girl Who Wonders Where All of the Normal People Are Hiding (and by normal I mean like me).

Okay, so I totally swiped this idea from mamatulip… because, well, it’s brilliant, I love it, and want to try it out for myself. So here we go!

Arightly. To start it off, in honour of brilliance:

Dear Mamatulip,

You rock my socks!


Your Schnast Sistah!


Dear Gross Man on Subway,

Watching you rub your butt on the pole up and down and side to side made me throw up in my mouth a little. Try a rub and tug or a back scratcher and call it a day.


That Girl Who Looks Disgusted Sitting Behind You.


Dear Patios and Beer,

Stop tempting me. You only get me into trouble.


Your Best Customer.


Dear Rude Man on Transit,

How dare you grab my shoulder, pull me back, cut in front of me and watch the door slam in my face instead of taking one split second of your precious time to be a decent person and hold it for me. It was rude and don’t pretend like you didn’t notice that both of my hands were full.

Congratulations, *DING! DING! DING!* you have won a gold medal for today’s biggest asshole. Your parents would be proud.


The Girl Who Hates You.


Dear Sanity,

Where are you?




Dear Hot Man in My Office Building,

Sorry I’m such a dork. You are quite intimidating.


The Dork


Dear Left Foot,

Anytime you want to stop swelling up would be fabulous and greatly appreciated.


The Post Surgery Girl.


Dear Future Employers,

Hire Me! My job ends soon.


The Girl who Needs a Job, Pronto.


Dear Procrastination,

You are my closest friend.


(I’ll fill this in later)


Dear Work That I Don’t Finish,

See above letter.


The Procrastinator


Dear Popsicles,

I wish you lasted longer.


The Girl Who Devours You


Dear Girl Who Lives Above Me,

Please stop singing. Please. I beg you. Stop. Or tone it down a notch. I can’t take it anymore. This is not American Idol, nor a soundproof apartment building.


The Girl Who Thinks You Need Singing Lessons.


Dear Barbados,

I miss you immensely and will see you next month. Save me a sweet spot on Accra Beach. Don’t forget my rum and coke, flying fish and macaroni pie. Yummers.


Your Biggest Fan


Dear Hot Guy on My Transit Route Home,

Where the hell have you been hiding? Yes, I did a double-take. Yes, I followed you to the second bus. Yes, I checked your ring finger. Yes, I checked what book you were reading. Yes, I turned and checked which building you went in when we got off at the same stop. And finally, YES: I’m bored and have nothing better to do.


Your New Friend
