Um, excuse me whilst I go and have a sit down in a darkened room for a moment…
Well, as you can see, my customary fluency has deserted me somewhat at the moment. Partly this is due to a hard night out last night saying goodbye to the Boy Temp (picture me all 🙁 – work just won’t be as much fun without his tall gingerness to liven things up) which has left me a bit cream-crackered, a feeling not helped by then going out tonight with illyna and the rest of the Collective. It is also partly due to something I just spotted in my RSS feed.
I have checked the list. Twice.
I have texted illyna to get her to check the list. Twice.
I was notified to the link from Tyme by Technorati.
I’d get Moose to confirm it as well, but I don’t think she’d appreciate being woken up.
So there you have it. Out of the 700 who submitted, 111 have been preliminarily accepted, and it looks like Bright Meadow is one of them. I keep thinking this is some kind of elaborate practical joke – keep hitting “refresh” just to make sure my name is still on the list.
Holy Batman on a motorcycle! *1*
And if that wasn’t enough firsts for the night, the Crazy Canalman has made his first ever comment on the blog. Not totally convinced that letting my father have the URL was a good idea, but he kept asking about what I was doing with my time, and I let slip about this website I wrote. He somehow managed to comment as me (I corrected it), but I think that might be because I signed into the blog on his laptop the other week to do some admin stuff… However it happened, he commented, and then emailed me to say how much he liked it. It’s always nice when your Aged P’s appreciate what you are doing 😀
Well, because I am jabbering, I am going to take myself off to get some much needed sleep. Congratulations everyone else who has been selected by 9rules. Now it’s just wait and see what the member agreement has to say for itself.
Whatever comes next, it sure is nice to be selected. A much needed happy moment after a couple of shitty weeks. I’ve got a grin on a mile wide right now 😀
I think it was the penguins that got me in, don’t you? 😉
*1* Yes. Unimaginative, but you can’t underestimate how tired I am right now, or how much this news has completely knocked me for six. I just sat here for five minutes blinking in disbelief at the screen. I was then shaking so much it took a further five minutes to type a simple text message!
