The other day, my friend Natalie and I were
goofing off chatting idly and she sent me a link to a blog entry by The Bloggess (who we both love dearly and agree may be the funniest woman on the freaking planet). That quickly devolved into over an hour of complete fuckoffery wherein we kept sending each other links from her blog and laughing at our favorite lines (“There once was a girl from Nantucket, Who bought Imperial Sugar by the bucket. She scarfed candies and sweeties, ‘Til she got diabetes. Then she lost both her legs and said, ‘Fuck it’.” Link)
At one point, I came across this entry and since I’ve recently actually started using Twitter, I looked her up and followed her.
As 5pm rolled around, I pulled myself away, said byes to Natalie and got the hell out of work. As I walked to my car, my phone dinged indicating I had email. This was the subject line.
TheBloggess @TheBloggess is now following you (@kchiki).
I let out an involuntary “SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!!” and then immediately composed myself because, who knows? Maybe she follows everyone. Pfft. Whatevs, right?
However, I had to send Natalie an email.
