Suzi’s Cover Letter:
Do I love donuts or what!?!? I eat them. I make them. I buy them… and there isn’t a cream stick I won’t shove in my mouth. The donut, too! I’m really good with people, and I when I was little, I pretended to be one of the girls on The Price Is Right that looks all bangin’ and knows how to show off the products. It’s like it’s meant to be!
Plus, all that walking around will burn off the calories eating all those yummy donuts. So this is a fitness thing and a food thing, which is fantastic!
P.S. One time I made a doughkini—a bikini made from donuts—for a party. Let’s just say it was a hit!
Glazed and Confused,
I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
