By now, most of you (and the world) have read The Thanksgiving Letter, which I posted last year after receiving it from a friend. Since I first published it, it's been reposted on a number of websites, most famously Awkward Family Photos.
Earlier this year, a production company contacted me. They were interested in making The Thanksgiving Letter into a webisode for their new series, INST MSGS. I just received the final cut from the producers, and my four word review of their adaptation:
"OMG. It's LOL brilliant."
Oh, and to answer questions I've received about the letter (since a reader called me out: "As a married woman it is your duty as an adult to follow up on this."):
- Yes, this is a true letter.
- No, it’s not about my family, nor did I write it. It was written by a dear friend’s family member’s coworker. I got permission to post it, and I changed the names to protect the innocent from the litigious. :-)
- Sadly, there has not been a 2009 edition of the letter. Yet. Hold out hope, as we still have Christmas.
