Jen, would you be my BFF?

Dear Miss Lancaster,

I must start by saying I have a total non-lesbian crush on you. I had heard about your first book Bitter is the New Black, quite a few years ago but only recently started reading your masterpieces. To say I love your writing would be an understatement. As I am now halfway through your third book, Such a Pretty Fat, I often find myself thinking what I would say, as you so vividly describe different situations, only to find out that you read my mind!

I really think we could be great friends. While you are too modest to say n-i-p-p-l-e and have a mouth that would make any soldier blush, I try my hardest to only use made up swears but have no problem discussing the special hugs that adults do when they really love each other.

I could bring a great balance, and have even been known to make my friends laugh. Just think about it.


*I actually sent her this in an email...I'll let you know if I ever get a reply!


I have a ton of pictures and events to write about, but I have been working every chance I get, because lets face it, I can't complain about not having money when I turn down a chance to work when Eric is home and I won't have to pay for a sitter!

I have heard great things about her books. Guess I should start reading them!

Annette said...

Mary, I think you could be a great writer and could make everyone laugh, not just your friends and family! Love you girl!

I've heard of her too but haven't read her books. Sounds like I have to "kindle it", you know, in my free time, lol!!

Miss you!

"I can't complain about not having money when I turn down a chance to work"

Aaaah, darn you and your darn wisdom! I certainly need to learn that lesson.

I looked for Jen Lancaster at the library and we don't have ANYTHING by her!! So sad, because I really think I would enjoy her books.

It seems like you and I have similar tastes in things, so I am definitely going to have to look up her books. Thanks for the review!
