Dear Ellen (letter 4) *ETA*

O. M. G. Ellen!! I don’t know how this happened. In my last letter I tentatively booked our tentative show for Thursday October 2nd and here I am a NO SHOW.


Ellen. I am. So. Sorry. I don’t even know what happened. I guess life just caught up with me, you know? I’m sure I missed some phone calls leading up to that day and one of them had to be from you. It’s just not like you to not call. Believe me when I say I am absolutely kicking myself right now. The last thing I want is for you to feel like you’re not a priority to me because you are.

From the sounds of it you’ve been pretty busy yourself. I’ve heard all about your opposition to Proposition 8 and how you’re urging fellow Americans to vote against it. And by “heard all about” it I mean I just google searched your name and that’s what came up.

Ellen I will TOTALLY vote against Proposition 8 with you…and I’m not just saying that as some kind of new tactic to get on your show. I believe in a lot of things, bribery is NOT one of them (though I do make a mean banana bread…just sayin’). I believe in fairness. I believe in compassion. I believe in equality for all people.

Ok I just stole those last three lines from one of your tv ads, but I believe in that stuff TOO Ellen!! THAT is how similar we are. I can’t believe how many things we have in common.

Other similarities:

We both enjoy your show.
We both think Portia is hot.
We both love children and I have three I’d be willing to loan you for an extended weekend.
We both love animals…I just don’t love keeping them in my house so much.

See! It’s like we’re soulmates. I don’t really believe in soulmates per se, but if I did I think you would be mine. I don’t have that much in common with anyone else I know still living.

Anyways I can’t wait to hear from you so that we can put something together. November is pretty busy for me. I’m taking the week of Thanksgiving off though, so it would be awesome if we could get together sometime in there. I know you’re busy too, so take a look at your schedule and we’ll work something out.

In the mean time I’ll totally join you in your crusade to oppose proposition 8. I might make it next months theme for the daycare kids…we’ll see. I’m thinking I could integrate some pretty awesome craft ideas.

We’ll be in touch Ellen.

Talk to you soon!
