god this is good thanks e.jean c. count me in you had me at all the Barbie stuff which i actually got and probably won't see film until the next apocalyptic event gives me an excuse to watch shit for days like i did with Game of Thrones (reading is easier somehow when not looking over shoulder to see if cultural wars has not spilled over into backyard, Netflix you can just turn up louder)

personally Picasso's mysterious older daughter more likely to keep me up at night than deep thoughts on Barbie (your caption description of her was sneaky hilarious and apt!!) yeah i'm in

Barbie was mist glorious 113 minutes I’ve had recently. Stunning visuals throughout. Dance scenes beautifully done and very funny.

Combined responses to each part of the frosty newsletter:

Okay, buckle up because I am about to spill the tea on this movie called BARBIE. Let me tell you, it was a wild ride from start to finish. Picture this: a dazzling explosion of colors, costumes that would make even Lady Gaga jealous, and a plot twist so unexpected it had me clutching my popcorn in shock. But here's the thing, this movie had some serious moralizing going on. I mean, come on, can't we just enjoy a flick without being hit over the head with life lessons? I wanted to be whisked away into a magical world, not given a lecture on the dos and don'ts of being a Barbie. Don't get me wrong, I'm not here to rain on anyone's parade. Everyone should see this movie and form their own opinion. Who knows, maybe you'll be blown away by its profound message. But for me, BARBIE missed the mark. So grab your popcorn and get ready for a rollercoaster of a film. And, when you're done, let's dish about it because I am dying to hear what you thought.

Oh, Ozempic, Ozempic! Let me tell you, it's been a wild ride. Seriously, my cravings? Poof! Gone! It's like I've broken free from the clutches of some massive food addiction. And let me tell you, my waistline? It's looking snatched, honey! Plus, my wallet is breathing a sigh of relief because those food bills? They've taken a nosedive.

And remember that pesky gastrointestinal condition? Yeah, it's gone. Vanished! No more frantic bathroom hunts. I can finally walk the streets with confidence, no longer mapping out every restroom in town. It's liberating!

Chips? Oh, please! They hold no power over me now. They're like these sad little snacks that just don't mean a thing anymore. I've cleared out my pantry! It's a whole new world in there. And let me tell you, this transformation goes beyond the physical. It's touched my mind and soul. I am so committed to this journey, you have no idea. I won't stop, not for anything... Well, okay, maybe if something better comes along. But until then, I'm all in, baby!

Heartbreaking, nightmarish, seemingly never ending agony for those who recognize their difference and live by it.
