Thanks an Effing Lot!

Dearest friends and family the world over,

You all deserve ponies, and ice cream sundaes, and bouncy castles, and…I don’t know. What is like, super balls awesome? ATVs? ATVs, I suppose, are pretty fucking rad.

The encouragement I receive in support of my dream is incredible, and incomparable. I’m an author now, not only because I finished a manuscript. I am so loved. If my heart swells any more, blood will leak through the pores of my skin. Literally.

Don’t you hate it when people improperly insert literally into their conversations? “I packed so many egg rolls down my throat, my stomach, like literally exploded.” I was so fucking mortified, I like, died. Literally, dude.” “I rolled my eyes so fucking hard, they literally fell out of my head.” “I’m a vacuous cunt. Literally.”

And I am literally grateful.

You all are bananas, and I love you endlessly.

      1. You’re very welcome, Kindra. πŸ™‚
        While I’m here, is there anything particular you want to show me? Something you’re extraordinarily proud of? πŸ™‚


          1. Thank you! 😊 I wish I had a satisfactory answer to your question. So many words and phrases just emerge from my brain. I think about writing all the time–everything is fodder.

          2. I had planned to take my daughter to England to celebrate her high school graduation two years ago. But my health declined rapidly, and I had to quit my job. We wiped out the savings covering medical bills my health insurance wouldn’t pick up. But! The dream is not dead. Someday I will walk with Nicole hand in hand through Newcastle City Centre.

  2. I literally don’t know what to like, literally say, but I figure that I could figuratively say we love you and are proud of you, like totally. In the most literal sense. Also, all the recs for the usage of vacuous cunt, so very Johnny Rotten of you:)

        1. Right on. I also love God Save the Queen.
          “God save the queen
          the fascist regime
          they made you a moron
          a potential H bomb”

  3. I literally peed my pants. Or did I? I was quite excited but I literally haven’t done that since I was… like…5.
    How many words can YOU think of that start with L and end in Y?
    LoveuoY – and thank YOU for this.
