Dear Katy Perry-
Please stop being popular. I don't want to hear your songs anymore. Your voice is like a black hole that sucks all good from the world.

Dear Killers-
You are a dumb movie. You have a dumb concept, made somehow dumber when it's put on film. However, Tom Selleck is attractive, so points for that. And it was smart of you to put Catherine O'Hara in the cast. You must have known you were going to be a dumb movie and that she would be your only saving grace.
You're also the name of a dumb band. Double whammy.

Dear Pretzel m&ms-
Please stop being manufactured.

Dear People Reading This-
There's a new online magazine out that you need to read. It's called The Barrel. And if you click on those words, it'll take you to the site where you can read it. Cool people like Melissa write/edit/design it. And cool people like Shelle write stories for it. And you can win stuff like photography sessions, or a blog makeover. And it's all online so you can read it anytime. And I'd post a picture-link to it, but I don't know how. So just go read it.

Dear Self-
It's nearly 12:30 a.m. and you're getting up at 6:30. Why the heck are you blogging instead of sleeping?

Good night.

Dear Barb,

You are cute, witty, funny and clever!

Now go to bed!

LisAway said...

Ditto on everything Boy Mom said. :) (are the pretzel M&Ms bad because you love them or hate them?)

I read in the newspaper this morning (apparently I read the paper now) that Katy Perry calls herself "kind of a good girl." Ummmm, she shot whipped cream out of her bra in her last music video.

Kazzy said...

Dear Katy Perry,

Why do all of your songs sound exactly alike?


*MARY* said...

Dear pretzel m&ms,
Don't listen to Barb, she's crazy.

Kara Herron said...

What a fun post. Can I steal your idea for my blog? As I was reading your letters, I thought of all kinds of letters I want to write.

I'll give you credit of course!

Oh, and I haven't even tasted pretzel M&Ms - but they sound absolutely sinfully wonderful.


Kristina P. said...

You mean, you don't love Katy Perry's love for spelling, like "Gurls?"

Becky Dayton said...

And you're on page 15! Barb you don't leave out details like that. My roommates definitely watched the Killers and I watched for about half a minute before I left. And Katy Perry can perish.

Just SO said...

Those Katy Perry songs get jammed in my head.

Haven't seen The Killers. Guess I'll skip it.

Lady of Perpetual Chaos said...

Sometimes it's good to just get things off your chest. I want to do a letters post, but I think I would probably sound bitter and snarky instead of clever and cute like you. Also, not a fan of pretzel m&m's. But I LOVE the coconut m&m's. I highly recommend. ;o)

janica said...

i have to agree and disagree.

pretzel m&ms are nastaaayyy.

the killers are aaawweesssoommee:)

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

All Katy Perry songs sound they same. She is psycho. And pretzel M&Ms, I have yet to even see these!

Lara said...

Katy Perry = Yuck. I will never understand how some people make it. Just because she kissed a girl? (She IS the one with that song, right? I'm not too up on these things...)

And I havent' dared try the pretzel M&M's. Because I'm afraid they would be too good. Are you saying they're good? Or not so good.

wendy said...

I never listen to Katie Perry
Never even heard of that movie (but I do LIKE Tom Selleck)
have not tasted pretzel m&m's
I'll check out that site

and for goodness sakes girl, go to bed.

Hey, I was surprised Rick Fox got voted off. It will be interesting to see how far Bristol is going to go.........all her mom's influential votes I guess.
She is getting a Liiiiitle bit better though.

Jennifer Grey and Dereck don't really seem to have much chesmistry going on and I am tired of her drama.

so what do YOU think

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

You are blogging because I MISSED YOU!! I am now off to check out the new online magazine. I love a good time sucker.

T said...

Dear Barb - get some sleep, but don't stop being hilarious when well rested!

Cynthia said...

I agree about the Katy Perry stuff. Heard her 'sing' on SNL- girl CAN NOT sing her way out of a paper bag. NO talent.

I stay up too late too then curse myself the next day. Bad habit and I'm getting too old for it!

Smart Helm said...

Totally relate to the late night. And why are the dumbest songs played over and over on the radio? Are they cheaper the dumber they are?

Ca88andra said...

Well, that convinces me not to watch Killers - or listen to them!

Deb said...

I agree about Katy Perry, but I admit that I love the Killers.

Cherie said...

I totally love the way you tell it like it is! I said the same thing about Pretzel M&M's a BAD idea!!!
Katy Perry is getting on the nerves - Holy Smokes!! Did you know she is the daughter of a minister? That kind of cracks me up with some of the content of her songs...just sayin'!

My word verification is unhell -ha ha

charrette said...

I love the line about the pretzel m&ms. Please stop being manufactured? Too funny.

Chris and Sara Waldron said...

I have to admit I have no idea who Katy Perry is and don't know what Killers is, but I have eaten Pretzel M&Ms once. They were ok- not worth spending money on again anytime soon. But lets be honest, if somebody just gave me some or they were sitting in a bowl at a party, I'd eat them.
