Great Bloggers-of-Crushworthy-Brains Womyn I Discovered in 2008, in Alphabetical Order Because it is not a Hierarchical List:
Most Horrific Moment of 2008:
"Drill, Baby, Drill!" The GOP looked right at me through my TV and said "We want to kill your Goddess!!!!!!111!!!!1!!! with big grindy phallic evil industrial greedy machines of horrible death."
Funniest Bisexual Family Bonding Moment of 2008:
In line at Target, when my brother's and my jaws simultaneously ate linoleum when we saw the Tina Fey Vanity Fair cover for the first time.

Most Non-Event Event of 2008:

Best 2008 Pop Culture EPIC WIN:

Best Last Minute Good News of 2008:
Dad-of-Bu gets to come home tonight; no New Year's Eve in the hospital. (He has to get a pacemaker/defib but they'll arrange that next week.)
*It is an ACEO for a fantastic new project I'm launching to sketch an art card every day. See art blog for details. This is a sneak preview for my special, darling y'all. I had to sort of talk myself into/give myself permission to be whimsical as I feel the need. My art takes itself sofuckingseriously, but I really don't always. Sometimes flippant Daisy, sometimes heavy, sturdy Bones.
So: swirly, teacuppish goodness. And since I'm subtly outing my identity, go shop at my Etsy shop please & thanks.
