Big thoughts (muddled or otherwise) will have to wait for another day.
BIG NEWS! takes precedence today. CELEBRATION! is called for.
Heather Gattuccio aka Mrs. G. has gone Hollywood. You MUST click the link. It's mandatory today. Unless you already read it--nah, click it again, it's worth another read.
There are many Derfs happy today for Mrs. G.'s success, but none more thrilled than I. Really, every blog accomplishment I have had has come as a result of her support. She was the first person to read my blog (because NOBODY does directly supporting and encouraging her readers like Mrs. G.) and it was her featuring me on the inaguaral Slow Cook Thursday that got me readers two, three and four.
I looked back on the comments on that post and am blown away that I've met more than one of those women in person, and have close blog relationships with others. My comment to her deserves a repeat here today: Mrs. G, How can I ever thank you enough? Of all the bloggers in bloggerville, you will always be first in my heart!
Heather did not just give me readers though, she turned me into a writer. Her asking me to write for The Women's Colony was a watershed moment in my life. If someone with Mrs. G.'s writing chops says she considers you a decent writer, you ought to ponder believing it. I loved every minute-drama and all-of that writing project with those women.
If you don't already "like" The Derfwad Manor Facebook page, you really ought to pop over and rectify the situation post-haste.
Heather has been a true friend in other ways as well; not bloggable, but hugely important to me.
I'm calling it now--viewing party at my house! We will do it up in true Derf style; strong liquor, great food and hot guys wearing aprons refilling our glasses. Who's in?
