fan mail

Dear Project Runway,

I totally HATE Santino (San-MEANO!). He is like the biggets terd. He is mean and is just scared of people that are smarter than him. (If I were Stephen Colbert I would put him on my "Dead to Me" board.) He also has gross hair. I am sad that Diana got cut becaue she had some big ideas. I also miss Daniel Franco. He was nice to everyone and wished for Bliss that is totally nice. I think now I want Chloe to win. I like the buterfly mousepointer I downloaded from Heidi's web site.

Your Biggest Number One Fan (exsept NOT OF SANTINO!!!!!!!!!!)

obligatory resolutions post

1. Spend less time on hold on the phone.
2. Use that time to stare absentmindedly out the window anyway, but without holding my head crooked.
3. Take the advice of the fortune I got in a cookie the other day: "Get [sic] your goals high and you will always move forward."
