And Now For My Victory Lap

Well, I asked and I received, and all I can say is... they like me, they like me, they really, really like me(aww, look at the little blonde crazy girl spinning around with that stupid smile on her face and spit flying from her mouth.)

My friend Steph used to think that she was retarded(her words), I think the PC term is now developmentally delayed, anyhow, she thought she was slow but that her parents were afraid to tell her because they felt bad or wanted her to think she was like everyone else. She seriously walked around with this unsubstantiated suspicion floating around until as late as last week.

I relay this story because it mirrors my own underlying feelings that maybe I'm not as funny as my friends and family tell me I am and maybe my writing is on par with that of a second-grade ESL student.

As my header suggests, I suffer from my fair share of self doubt so it's nice to get a good word from people who are not in immediate physical peril if they say otherwise. So thanks for the great review, I promise I won't let it go to my head...any longer than the remainder of this week.

For those of you who found me other ways,I wanted to let you know what a great site this is. I didn't want to kiss ass before because then I would have doubted anything they said. They are mean, wicked, kind, helpful, snarky, dirty, elitist, plebian, and vitriolic . If you want to make your blog better, you are a masochist and you want a good old fashioned spanking or you just like dirty, rotten scoundrels, give them a read. I'm of the mind that any group that likes me I wouldn't want to be a part of, except for this one. This is definitely like the cool kids lunch table in school, if the cool kids were jaded and smart and spent a great deal of time with their computers.

Yes, I popped over to give you a big ol' congratulations! (And I like the pink, by the way...)

I'm still not allowed to sit with the cool kids, but at least they didn't give me a swirly.

Peace - D

Big congrats! I remember that feeling after hitting "submit"; waking up every morning, running to the computer just in case today was the day. They give you just enough time to wonder what in the hell you've done, and why you even started these shenanigans in the first place.

Of course you did well. Silly.

Goodonya! I could have predicted that review down to the letter. You're dead sharp and witty and deserve the stars! She's right about the pink, too.

I agree re site, I came to you because of their review and like what I see, and will check to see how you improve thanks to their critique. I submitted not long ago (no review yet) and have since been a tad nervous. Mainly cause I know I need to clean up my shit, cause right now my header looks like a smurf threw up on it.

Man, I was on vacation when I got reviewed (a couple years ago) with no computer access, so when I got home I was all "O.M.G. bitches!" Not really, with the omg, because that shit is just annoying, but I was surprised. And frightened, just a little.

That's how I found youuuuu!!! You are pretty rockin'.

I put in a while back. I'm a bit scared now though. And I'm hoping my blog designer finishes before my review comes up.
