...don't like you?
And you have to act all cool like you don't care that they don't like you even though you really do?
And you act all tough pretending it doesn't matter to you one way or the other because you can totally take them or leave them?
How do you learn that?
Because I am need of that particular skill at this particular moment.
And it's because of Pioneer Woman.
I'm trying not to be a hater here...I'm all filled with glee over her big success an all...
...but I don't understand why she doesn't like me.
I tried and I tried and I tried to win her Christmas giveaways. Each day I went out there with the other 20,000 people or so and put up my little comments, confident that each and every day would be my day to win.
But was it?
I mean, seriously. The last drawing there was only like 15,312 people and did I win?
She doesn't like me, I tell ya. I don't know why. Really. I'm fun. I'm clever. I can channel vintage TV personalities (not sure who, actually, but I know I could if I put my mind to it!).
I think perhaps she feels threatened by me...after all I put up so many amazing recipes. Who can forget my recipes for snacking almonds...or my stupendous recipe for dulce de leche!
Yea, that is definitely the reason.
But somehow it's not making me feel better.
I had planned to use one of my Borders gift cards from Christmas to order this... But now because PW doesn't like me I will have to order this instead... And somehow that just doesn't seem fair.
Cool recipes or learning how to deal with rejection?
Really, I am so sad I have been forced to this decision.
But I need to find a way to cope with the obvious dislike she has for me.
Because if I can't...
I will continue to eat all the Christmas sweets...
And soon my fingers will be too fat to even type an entry into a PW giveaway...
Not that I would even enter again in a million years...
Because when people don't like me I don't like them either.
oh...and, by the way, she's not having a giveaway today.
Not that I checked.
