Note to Self

I should publicly spaz out every time I make an e-mail submission (see here if you have no idea what I'm talking about). Because apparently that's what needs to occur before this here Veronica can get a little love.

In other words, my 309-word appreciation of SkyFlakes Crackers will appear at Timothy McSweeney's Internet Tendency in one month's time.

Admittedly, this is a small thing. And yet...I feel giddy. Oh, so giddy. I feel giddy and witty and gay. And I pity any girl who isn't me today! *dances around the dress shop with the other Shark girls*

"I feel charming. Oh, so charming. It's alarrrrrming how charrrrrrming I feeeel...."

Thanks, guys. It's just the website, but I'm tickled nonetheless. And Marianne, I think there has been at least one other Filipina (or someone pretending to be Filipina). She transcribed her family's daily e-mails, and they were so hilarious because every family member—the mother and father in particular—would recount what they'd eaten so far that day. Hahahahahahaha!

Nice, congrats! Can't wait to read it.

Thanks, mister. It's only about as long as a blog post, so it'll be painless.

Have I mentioned that I LOVE your blog??? Especially when it's all about one of my favorite shows!
Oh... sorry... um... I mean, Congratulations on the whole McSweeney's thing.
