I like to write letters

"I'm so angry, I'm going to write them a letter."  These are fighting words in my family.  And weapons of mass destruction.   

I grew up learning to speak my mind from a young age.  I wrote all kinds of letters:  thank you notes, cards, inquiries, and complaints.  Letters that complained were my favorite.  Who's surprised?

As I got older, I realized there was a litany of people who needed letters who weren't getting them because they... well they didn't really exist (as in being a breathing human being) or there would be no way for me to get an address.  Did I let this get in my way - heck to the no!

I've been very lucky in that I have a "humor column via a letter" published every month on the Letters to the Editor page of the LA Times Sunday Magazine.  My latest letter came out this weekend and I'd like to share it with you:

It's under "Letters to the editor" on the bottom of the second page.  And keep in mind... if you enjoy the letter, you are a New Old Biddy.  


  1. i am in total agreement to bring back the hoodie & do away with sweatpants with words on the ass. half the time they are written in a font to hard to read & you end up staring at someone's ass for too long and then they give you a dirty look. i am getting tired of getting dirty looks from them like i think they have a hot ass. i am just trying to figure out what the hell is written on your ass!

  2. SERIOUSLY! And let's be honest, it's not always the prettiest asses these words are on. I'm just saying some people really need to rethink what "Juicy" means on their backside region. Yeeks.

  3. Myspace disabled your link and said it was spam! What a joke! Very good letter BTW. :)


    They stink! Glad I got a new blog page. I need to now go write MySpace a letter...

  5. I am so glad I found you over here! Myspace blocked your link..NOW u know why I switched..and am guiding my fans to Facebook! U ca direclty link!


  6. My bath robe has a hood too!!

  7. I guess I am a 20-year old New Old Biddy. Cause my hoodies are not going anywhere. But I felt as though the words on the ass where the new age, nonpermanent tramp stamp.

  8. I'm inching closer to 30 but I still wear hoodies all the time (I'm wearing one now, actually.) I am definitely a New Old Biddy and proud! Haha.

  9. Ester - I so see why you switched! MySpace is like a hobo dinosaur. Horrible. And stinky.

    Eileen - All robes should have hoodies!

    Tanya - Welcome to old age at 20-years-old. AARP will be calling soon...

    Mrs. Bee - I need to get a hoodie that says, "New Old Biddy" and sell it! :)

  10. I think i have it figured out..if i log in first maybe....:-)

    Amen girl! I have NEVER understood the "trend" of having crap written across your but. I mean that is only cute when you are a baby and that big diaper is underneath.
