Friday's Letters...

Dear Left Index Finger: It has been over a week since my stitches have been taken out, think you could heal a bit quicker so I am able to bend you properly again? I can't stand not being able to hold on to things because you won't bend. Thanks!
This is as far as I can bend my finger currently
Dear Friends: I'm thinking about having a paintball party for my birthday, would you come if I had one?

Dear Stores That Sell Plus Size Clothing: Why don't any of you have a sexy little black dress with some sort of sleeve to cover my fat arms? I can't be the only fat chick that wants to look hot and cover my arms at the same time. Can you please talk to the designers you buy from and work on that? Thanks.

Dear Arm Fat: Please go away. That is all.

Dear People Working On The Library: Can you please get the building open ASAP? I really miss dealing with patrons and their randomness.

Dear "Julia": Can you please stop informing us that you need a "Java Jolt" every time you decide you want a cup of coffee? We don't care. Especially since you still fall asleep at your desk after having said jolt.

Dear Readers: Would it be gross if I posted pictures of the doctor stitching up my finger? Lemme know!

Join up with the Friday Letters link-up over at The Sweet Season.

  1. Hi there! Hopped over from Friday's Letters and wanted to suggest a pashmina for your arms! I HATE my arms and often wear one (generally in color to add some flavor) when sporting a black dress! Anyway, hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Normally I'm all about a pashmina, but anger towards my arms and a lack of sleeves in this particular post is because I need a dress for a bachelorette party in NYC in a few weeks and a pashmina isn't gonna cut it.

  3. I agree about the arms part. I don't think designers understand plus sized women at all. Especially not tall plus sized women (me). Just because I'm plus sized doesn't mean I'm 5'1". UGH

    I would TOTALLY look at pics of you getting your finger stitched!!

    1. I know! I'm not super tall or anything but every time I try on a dress at a plus size shop they are always so short. I mean, I'm not modest or anything but I'd like to cover my fat arms and thighs!

  5. If you post the pics, just make sure you put a warning ahead of them ... stop scrolling if squeamish ...

    As for the sleeves, thank you! I was starting to think it was just me! I'll see a top or a dress I love but end up leaving it behind because it has no sleeves, or those tiny cap sleeves. I suppose they think they're saving money on fabric, but look how much business they're actually losing as a result!

    1. If it was actually a fabric issue I'd totally pay more money for a cute plus size dress with sleeves. I don't even need full sleeves, they could also be sheer. I just want the illusion of hiding my arms.

  6. I've had to go on a hunt for little sweaters and shrugs for my fab flab. I don't know why designers don't want to give the full-figured woman a sleeve. It doesn't make sense to me.

    Oh, I just subscribed to your blog. I used to work at the reference desk as a library tech at my alma mater and the public library. When I saw your blog's name, I knew I had to read on. I seriously considered getting a MLS for a long time.

    1. Me too! And I hate having to do that. Isn't there a stylish plus size lady out there that can make cute clothing for the rest of us?!

      :-D I hope you enjoy my blog! I typically post about work along with the random stuff I do in my everyday lift but unfortunately my library was affected by Hurricane Sandy so we aren't open to the public yet, so I'm lacking on wacky work posts.
