…Okay, not really, but tomorrow's my anniversary and I'm going out of town for a week.

You can still vote in the N Cookie AA flights we've opened so far; you can head over to Previously.TV for Bad-Ass Week, which starts Monday; you can read some things I wrote at Sports On Earth last week; or you can high-five this guy for surviving a full year of marriage to me. (He drew the graphic on this post. Heart.)

See you Bastille Day!

    You got married in July and waited until NOVEMBER to tell us? Well, I NEVER! Cancel my subscription, if I have one.

  • Sarah D. Bunting says:

    And you're getting offended in…July? UN-UNSUBSCRIBE.


  • Mingles' Mommy says:

    It's probably too late to wish you a nice trip, but it's never too late to wish you happy anniversary!

  • Meri says:

    And now you're posting while you're supposed to be on vacation?!? What more are you hiding from us, MADAM? The People have a right to know!!!

  • Meg says:

    Sars, you are now obligated to have Mr Birthworthy draw header graphics for ALL POSTS. Please and thank you.

  • Sarah D. Bunting says:

    Checking comments from you guys isn't WORK. [winkie]

  • Lisa says:

    I happen to be a person who says "unsubscribe" with some frequency in conversation (as a way of denoting my disagreement with someone's opinion, not in the way that makes it seem like I'm frequently talking about if I would like to continue receiving Reader's Digest via the USPS. Either way it's probably annoying to my friends, but that is their burden to carry I suppose). Anyway, last night I found myself unexpectedly saying "UN-unsubscribe" and I can only attribute that to this comments thread. Thanks, Nation!

  • Kay says:

    WHAT? Sarah is a MADAM? When was that big reveal going to happen, NOVEMBER?

    (It's a very merry capslock-y Friday!)
