Me Pink Loves Brown Press

Number 1 in the Venus Zine Hottt List!

I was surprised when I was nominated, thrilled when I was interviewed, and then shocked when I saw my face staring back at me in the Winter 2008 issue of ! The magazine won’t be on newsstands until December 1, but I subscribe and my copy arrived today.

Without even looking through the table of contents, I started flipping through to see if I could find the little blurb I was expecting about . Um, SURPRISE. I found it right away, since there’s a photo of me that takes up a quarter of a page! Yowza.

A two page feature! And I won the top spot in the Hottt List! Amazing. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to everyone that voted for me!

Again, a big thank you! And thank you, Venus Zine!
