The Day After

Good Morning,

how are all of you, tired from gorging on too much food during Thanksgiving??? (for those of you outside the US I am sure you were aware that yesterday was Gluttony day here in the states).

As most of you know, I don't love the whole Thanksgiving deal, but I do like eating and spending time with loved ones, so with most family being 800 miles away, the holidays tend to be quiet.

Since I moved to Ohio, we have spent the holidays with our friends Bruce and Carol, and since Carol's passing last month, I know my bubs and I were wondering what was to come of our little surrogate family.

We were lucky and Bruce did come over yesterday for his second dinner (he's popular like that) and he helped me pass the time until my bubs came home from work, we had yummy food and then later apple sweet cake with ice cream. fact I just snuck a small sliver of that cake to give me the energy to get through my blog until the coffee kicks in.

So yesterday was lovely, though sorely lacking one person.


We have our Christmas Tree up, though it is not decorated yet, and it really is beginning to feel like the holidays a bit more.

So with Holidays comes holiday shopping and, today is what is known as "black Friday" in the US, the "busiest" shopping day of the seeing as this does not really translate well into an online market I decided to have a little sale....maybe entice a few people away from the big stores and into my little one.

so, 20% off your entire purchase today, just write "BLACK FRIDAY" in the message to buyer and wait for a new invoice.

ok, now speaking of shops and what not.....something disturbing happened.

Wednesday I wrote my fake celebrity letter to Marie Osmond, and apparently I offended someone so much that in my comments she vowed to never shop with me again. Now.....I cannot control people and everyone has a right to get offended by anything they want to, but....

I need to clarify something the "letters" are a joke. I know, shocking, right??? They are a joke in the same way that skits making fun of celebrities on Saturday Night Live are, or a joke in the same way that The Daily Show is, or an opening monologue from David Letterman, or even a celebrity roast.

It is a lampoon. Yup, plain and simple. So, for those people who think they are nothing but mean, mean, well I am sorry, and for those of you who now think I am just mean, mean....well hate to break it to you but, I'm not.

So, for those people who find themselves totally offended when I joke about celebrities, please know that on Wednesdays I write the fake letters, and please, if you hate them that much, don't bother reading my blog on that day, come back the next day when I will be talking on and on about some other nonsense.

ok, that's all for now....don't forget, 20% off everything in my shop!!!

I like your letters so much, that I will try and make up for that mean nasty customer, despite the fact that I'm participating in "buy nothing" day. I don't think etsy shops count towards that. Long live free speech.

Christmas Tree Etsy does not count for buy nothing day as you are supporting indie artists and not wasting gas etc.

a lot of us have been going back and forth about it all.

I think the letters are f***ing hilarious, I mean SNL even when it sucks still makes me laugh. I laugh at myself. If we can't laugh at almost everything - not disease or Rwanda etc. of course, what do we have?
The only reasons I am not shopping
at Stiletto Heights today, checking if that canvas sold etc. (besides we NEVER shop the day after Thanksgiving)are #1: I have now officially no $$$ until either I sell something, or somehow get a check in the mail, AND #2: I swore to spend the weekend fruitfully putting something, some little something, in my own Etsy store for a change!
luv ya, and your so-called mean streak, too...

We LOVE reading your letters. Mr. Lovee is hooked... He is like "can we read that Stiletto girls letters? are there more??" hahahaaa... And trust me, that is a HUGE compliment. We are so politically correct in our society... So silly. Anywhoooooooo, on another note, I didn't overeat yesterday because I cooked and it is true what they say you know! If you inhale the fumes it toally satisfies any hunger. I could hardly muster up a bite... Today however....

xoxoxoxooxox Then slimfast forever :)

I love you and your Wednesday letters, so there, because all you need is love...

I love this Buy Nothing thing, what a wonderful thing. You can be rest assured that I will buy nothing today. I'm just sorry that I have to participate in it at all. Last time though, last time indeed.

I'm stopping by for the first time. I can't believe someone is being so rude about a joke. Blogging wouldn't be as fun if there was no talking shit about celebs! haha I do it all the time!

It's obvious the person has no sense of humor...or hasn't bothered to read any of your previous letters. It's just one person, J. Don't worry about it. We know you, we read you regularly, you don't have to justify your letters to us. But thanks for the clarification anyway. LOL.

As I said on Wednesday's post, I guaran-damn-tee that this anonymous commenter was Marie Osmond herself. Seriously, though, with everything that's going on in the world right now, this is what someone chooses to get offended over?! This is why the majority of our citizens are uninformed morons. We care more about voting for American Idol than we do for our actual leaders. Maybe "anonymous" should devote some of this outrage to doing something about genocide, global warming, or the fact that so many millions of Americans are without health care. Spend some time worrying about something important.

And of course, Jenn, you know I love you and your always hilarious letters. I look forward to them every week. Besides, I'll just keep bringing in more business for you. ;)

Typical that Miss Anonnie didn't have the guts to use her name. I hope you have a thousand million trillion holiday sales!

I'm participating in buy nothing day too (I can't imagine getting up to stand in line for the 4AM opening of some chain store) & now I'm pleased to know that etsy doesn't count. That's great news!

I'm still amazed by anonymous's stupidity and gutlessness at not actually fessing up to who he/she is! Wow!

For the record, I love your letters and also greatly dislike Marie Osmond.

I'm glad your Thanksgiving turned out to be good, despite Carol's recent passing. I know that was hard.

Big hugs to you as always... xoxox!
