Oh my, but my life is exciting!
I've just won a competition. I had to explain in 50 words or less "what makes an awesome story". (Answer: "Like, totally, y'know, like, when, like, totally, stuff happens and stuff, y'know?") Anyway, I WON! (Did I mention?) And now I get a whole lot of sensational prizes that I am resolved to enjoy to the utmost, including a lanyard (yes, a lanyard! from which to hang my rosary beads!), a tote bag, a "fantastic beauty pack", and a year's supply of G--------d magazine. It's true, I am no longer thirteen years old, and when I was thirteen years old, I was more interested in the reproductive lives of nematodes than G---------d magazine, but still ... I am indecorously excited. A tote bag! What more could a 29-year-old in spectacles ask for.
