1. CONGRATULATIONS TO BARACK OBAMA
Dear Barack Obama,
On the morning of your inauguration, I was buying a can of Diet Coke at my local 24-hour convenience mart when I caught sight of you being inaugurated on the little TV that the shopkeeper watches. "Barack Obama must be so happy right now," I thought to myself. "This must be the best day of Barack Obama's life. I wish I was Barack Obama. If only I were Barack Obama, I would be so happy." Then I thought about it a little harder, and realized that if I were Barack Obama right now, happy would be the last thing I'd be! If I were Barack Obama, I'd be stressed out, anxious, nervous, confused, constantly freaking out internally, a bit suicidal, and would probably feel let down by how life is still just boring old life, even when you're the President of the United States of America.
So, Barack Obama, congratulations on helping a scrappy 23-year-old Canadian fashion blogger come to terms with herself (and on becoming President and everything).
2. CONGRATULATIONS TO LEBRON JAMES
Dear LeBron James,
Before two days ago, I didn't know who you were. I was aware of the name LeBron James and that it belonged to a famous person who was probably an athlete, but that was the extent of my knowledge. Then, you charmed the hell out of me via your GQ cover (seriously! I was standing in line at the drugstore and that photo, like, chemically attracted me!), so much that I actually bothered to read the accompanying article. I learned that you are the Cleveland Cavaliers' power forward, and that you are 24 years old. Normally, when people around my age are more successful than me, I resent them and try to cut them down in my head. But with you, LeBron, I accept your early fame with open arms. Let's face it: I'm never going to be NBA material. And you're probably a way crappier writer than me! So, LeBron, let's call a spade a spade and continue on loving each other for the excellent people we both are.
3. CONGRATULATIONS TO TOM COLICCHIO
Dear Tom Colicchio,
I totally love you. I thought I couldn't love you anymore than I already did, but then I found out that you are a bear. I love you more now! That is SO HOT. Congratulations on being the world's hottest bear, Tom Colicchio. If I were into bears, I'd so be into you.
