This summer is disappearing faster than my finger nails during The Walking Dead. (Shhh…don’t tell me what happens, I’m only halfway through season 2!)
Lots of exciting things are happening around here:
1.) We took a little family vacation to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. It was a quick one and sadly, I didn’t have time to visit any friends while I was there, I was working the whole time, and it rained most days, but other than that, it was nice to see my mom and stepdad and eat my weight in Thrasher’s Fries, Grotto’s Pizza, Fractured Prune Doughnuts, and Snarky’s Italian Water Ice.
2.) I received the very exciting news that I was named a BlogHer Humor Voice of the Year for my Diary of a Sexually Maturing Leopard Gecko post, thanks to my friend Kerry of HouseTalkN who loved the story of Batman’s prolapsed hemipenis enough to nominate it for consideration. This is my second year to be named a Humor Voice of the Year by the kind folks at BlogHer and it is such a special honor to me because there were over 2600 posts submitted and read by a committee of my blogging peers. Only 3% of nominees were chosen for this award, so I feel beyond humbled to be listed among such a select group of writers. Thank you, BlogHer. I am truly grateful.

3.) I’m getting ready to go to the BlogHer ’13 conference in Chicago at the end of the month. My brilliant friend Suniverse and I are going to be co-presenting a session about Blogging and Anonymity Friday July 26th at 3:15 PM, so mark your calendars if you’re going to be there and that topic interests you or you just want to snarf down a homemade Vajazzled Vulva. (What?! It’s a cookie, perv!)
4.) And speaking of blogging conferences, I’m In The Powder Room today sharing Seven Simple Tips to Survive BlogHer ’13. Spoiler alert: don’t be an a-hole.
