    I just wanted to let you know that, well, #1, I don’t read Blogs. Nothing personal against bloggers, I just don’t. I don’t really have time and my (probably misguided) opinion has always been that most blogs are like the junk mail in our mailboxes–they clutter up the internet and pop up in annoying and irrelevant ways in response to my Google searches. And I don’t really give a rat’s hiney about the minutae of the average Jane’s day-to-day existence. Call me a narcissist, but if I am–and I’m NOT, dammit!–then at least I’m a narcissist with more free time on her hands.
    I found your blog by accident. You can drop the Federal Trade Commission a thank you note for inspiring my “Cookie Lee Scam” Google search (or hate mail, depending on how much you either appreciate or despise my comments/rantings. But I digress.
    The point of this post was to #1 tell you I don’t typically read blogs, but I’ve been reading yours and #2 to express my admiration for said blog ; )
    After reading EVERY SINGLE Cookie Lee post on this site, I have to say that I’ve come away from my experience here (after unleashing all the fury of a woman’s pocketbook scorned by sharing my own bitter, miserable experience, of course!) feeling downright ZEN. Five years of resentment, gone. Thank you for that!
    After reading all the CL posts, I moved on to the story of the $8 lock and the rectal thermometer…and will probably read even more, when I have the time. I just wanted to express my appreciation for your candid and fearless insights, as well as your humor. I’ll be back next time I need a smile, in the midst of my fruitless job search as a 8 year stay at home mom, with no degree, a prior work-related injury, and no current job skills. Hmmm…..maybe selling Cookie Lee wasn’t so bad, afterall! I”M KIDDING! Take care.
