Because I have nothing to do at work!
I highlighted some of the poopy party emails I got in response to my Falwell posts, and now it’s time to showcase a delicious one:
I heard from Michael Petrelis, who I admire greatly and is the Andrew Sullivan of the left:
welcome to the blade blog. i’m enjoying your posts and even commented on one for my blog. keep up the prodding and questioning.
In his post on his personal blog, he wrote: “The Blade syndicate of gay rags has a new writer onboard, Rebecca Armendariz, and she’s quite busy posting up a storm of messages on the paper’s blog and I like her feistiness and rather demanding style.”
Verdict: LOVES IT.
Other than that, a few observations:
1. I hate pooping at work. At AOL, there were many stalls, and anonymity was key. The chance of my knowing the person also occupying a stall in the vast facilities was small. And if someone wouldn’t leave and I had to go, I just went to another bathroom. At the Blade, there are two stalls and I know everyone. Everyone also knows who I am because outfit inspection, and therefore shoes inspection, is one of the first things that happens in the mornings here. Becca wearing brown wedges = pooping = everyone knows about it.
2. I’m going to a Hillary fundraiser next week! There will be: hot dogs. Babyface. Katharine McPhee. Hillary. Maya Angelou. Billie Jean King. Pro-choice fever. Can you imagine anything greater?
3. I entertain myself daily by going to Slog, the Stranger’s blog, where Dan Savage is a contributor. Down the sidebar, though, are links — first to “Friends of Slog” and second to “Enemies of Slog.” Clicking on each of the “enemies” has left me in tears. Do it.
