I was standing in line at In N Out today, just checking my emails, when I got a note to check out #16.
Turns out I was nominated for 7×7 Magazine’s Hot 20 Under 40! While the term “hot” really does make me squirm, it is kind of fun to pretend to be local celebrity for a spell. A sincere thank you to my nominator(s?)!
That’s actually my current Facebook photo there, and unfortunately you can’t fully appreciate the collective girth between Maggie, me, and Yogi in the thumbnail version. Just believe me when I say we’re nearly 400 pounds of RAW POWER. (Maggie tips the scale in every group weigh-in.)
I can’t lie, I’m curious to see how far this thing goes! There’s a series of voting rounds to go through, but in the meantime I’ve still got multiple jobs to do! I know I don’t want to get caught up in the competition, so I’m happy to have a couple things coming up between now and when the Readers’ (*achem* 7×7, I think the apostrophe goes on the outside of the s on this one.) Choice Winner is announced. Camping this weekend and Beantown the next! Yuh!
The only superlatives I won in high school were “Future Talk Show Host” and “Life of the Party.” In college my fellow Orientation Leaders named me “Most Likely to Utter a Sound Not of This World.” (Yeah, I was confused at first, too, but actually, it makes total sense.) Maybe this means I’ve evolved a bit? Ahh, who am I kidding?…
If you have friends who like selecting radio buttons on websites, I’d appreciate their votes, too!
The other nominees have me wondering how the heck I got on the list. Such an eclectic group! It’s totally cool if you don’t vote for me, but if you’re going to click on someone else’s name, please seriously consider PEACHES CHRIST. Overdue!
Maybe one day we can have a People Who Voted for Mayka Party! A “Why not?” attitude will get you anywhere.
