Tuesday Expert Advice

Dear Cupcake,

I hope you can help me with this question. You see, at the beginning of the year I have a bunch of shithole Christmas address labels leftover from the holiday season and, by my precious logic, I think it is quite appropriate to stick these reindeer, snowflake, Christmas tree, Snowman mini-murals on my address envelopes headed toward The Gas Company or Time Warner Cable or my renewal to The Poetry Foundation, thinking that it is better to use them up like the last of the bananas rather than throw them down the crap chute BUT my question to you is will this peg me as the type of person who is resourceful and proud or will I be pegged as the scrapping prostitute others have known me to be?

    I am working on an art installation made up of all of the address labels I have received. It shall be called Futile.

  2. Dear Cupcake:
    At the beginning of the year, after Christmas, I find myself wanting to shun all food except for queso and tortilla chips and homemade popcorn with lots of butter and salt. Is this healthy?

  3. I have a former friend (he rejected ME, imagine!) who received an angry letter from a lady in which she wrote that his behavior was ‘unacceptable, Bob.’ So, he wrote her back & cut out the ‘unacceptable, Bob’ & used it as his return address.
    Then he changed his e-mail to unacceptablebob@…
    That still makes me laugh.
