My, oh, my.

Emily Gordon at EMDASHES made my day, my week, my month. I'm being added, along with an excellent contributer, to her site that ties in with The New Yorker on a regular basis.

Every site needs it's EEOC required writer, so, she chose me.

I worry I'll jinx myself if I meme, but, this meme... well, I get to keep the fedora, and, I don't have to buy The New Yorker anymore.

The other side is, I have to really write stuff, and it can't just be six sentences or me going on about missing my dog.

Yeah, right.

YAY! Congrats'!

But, FYI, posts about missing your dog, etc. is exactly why I keep tuning in.

Soon, you'll be the one passing out fedoras--save one for me!

Quin, I do believe I hear the sound of the universe beginning to applaud you for fully embracing who you were always meant to be....a WRITER

Once again your courage and perserverance has inspired me.
Enough mushy stuff-
Yo Bitch- ya done good!

Bud said...

I'm so happy. You deserve this. Congrats!

Quin said...

i wonder if i can buy fedora's by the gross?

I wonder if the reason I'm not making any headway as a writer is that I don't wear a hat.

Headway. Hat.

I swear, it was an accident.

Quin said...

you lie like a rug.

golfwidow said...

Rugs lie like rugs. Toupee or not toupee.

Loobell said...

Quin you know I champion you and how much I believe you deserve this. You go girl X

I don't know what the New Yorker is.

I don't know what EEOC is.

I don't know what meme is.

I DO know that it seems my secret is out (no, not the one about me not knowing much). The one about you and your wit, intelligence and skill with words.


Now I have to find another secret.

I do know what a Fedora is, but look silly in hats.
