Magpies

I am honored and delighted that somebody has finally published something I wrote. Actually, I wrote an article specially for them. It's called Math Girl and The Mermaid: Masturbation in Early Childhood and American Politics.


I'm not exactly sure what Black Magpie Theory is, or means, or if there's a point. Fairlane calls it an experiment. For the moment, I don't particularly care what it is because I'm so excited to be there. It must be like an on-line magazine because several writers contribute to the publication and there is a daily cover story. Two stories per day sometimes. Lisa from That's Why first menitioned it to me, or maybe I asked her a question about it. I can't remember exactly, but Lisa was the catalyst. Then I met Distributor Cap for cocktails. He's brilliant and handsome and told me to relax.

I feel like I finally got to sit at the table with the cool kids in the cafeteria.

I have always considered you one of the 'cool kids' chica! ;)

PENolan said...

That's why I love you!
Plus I love the story about the time you fired off your ex-boyfriend's gun next to his ear and the judge let you off easy.

Vancouver Voyeur said...

Woo-hoo! Congrats! Bask in that great feeling.

Okay, I just read your article, WOW, it's funny, informative and observant of so many things in life. Oh, and M and I are planning on going to D.C. on the 30th as well. We'll have to plan a meet-up.

PENolan said...

AWESOME, V.V.
I think I'm going with Very Miss Mary. Will know for sure close to the 30th. Glad you liked the article. I was afraid it was too serious.
Thanks Gail and Intelli. I'm still pretty jazzed to see it up there.
Now I have to think of something to write for next Saturday. It's a steady gig.

I am so glad to see you there. I can't wait to read it!

Oh, and isn't DCap delicious?

LOL at "naked slut in a pink convertible" and Rad Repeatin' Tarzan.

Thanks for the new bookmarks.

PENolan said...

Hey Lisa
Dcap is the best
Thank you, too, dissed.
That Tarzan cracks me up every time

I never connected it to being smart, 'cause I ain't, but I have always been, and hope to continue being, a masturbator.

congrats, and good writing.


Love that Rad Reapeatin' Tarzan !

I guess you won't ever speak with us geeks and nerds anymore, huh?

Congrats!

PENolan said...

mac - one day I may have to break down and buy one on Ebay.

Beach - you know I talk to everyone. That's how I wound up married to Buzz Kill ;)

Loved the article. "In my mind, no matter what Mattel did to try and make Barbie into a career minded female – she’s been a Paleontologist and a Paratrooper – she’s really a naked slut in a pink convertible." So true.

PENolan said...

And God bless naked sluts in pink convertibles - especially with people like Christine O'Donnell around

You are SUCH a cool kid. I commented over at BMT on your piece ...

As a Canadian, I really am gob-smacked at what's happening south of the border (politically, that is!) ... I have a sneaking suspicion that our elusive prime minister would be in agreement with the latest model of Stepford harpy whose yapping about masturbation is beyond insane. At least our PM has the good grace to keep his mouth shut about it.

Once upon a time, Canada had a prime minister who said, "The church and state have no business in the bedrooms of the nation."

Amen, Pierre Trudeau!
