So awesome I HAVE to post it!

The Homewood Public Library is having a Pet Reading Photo Contest, and I entered my cat, Pipsqueak. I caught a great picture of him "reading" Jenny Lawson/The Bloggess' book Let's Pretend This Never Happened. This is supposed to just be a fun community contest with a small prize. And it was...until my competitive coworker got all...competitive. So I emailed The Bloggess and asked her to comment on my picture (each comment = 1 vote). Then this happened:

I think I screamed. I'm not sure, because the next few minutes are a blur. A kinda grey black blur. But I remember scampering down the hall to tell my coworker that, whether I won or not, my entry was the awesomest because the author commented on it! 'Cause she's awesome!!!

So, because it would actually be cool to win, here's the link if you want to vote for Pipsqueak reading Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson: VOTE! Remember that to vote you actually have to leave a comment, even if it's just a smiley face.

BTW, the book really is lickable. I mean, you wouldn't really want to lick it, because it tastes like paper and ink. But cats like to lick it, which is like a seal of approval. Because it's a fantastically funny read.

Update: I was going to update this to report the pinnacle of awesomeness: The Bloggess listed Pip's picture on her blog under " Shit I Did When I Wasn't Here." You can see that post here, just scroll down to "What you missed on the Internets" (but read the blog first - it's hysterical!). Of course, Pip is the link entitled "I'm a Bad Influence on Cats." I died from happiness. Could it get any better?

Then an even more amazing thing happened...checking my Twitter account I discovered that THE BLOGGESS HAD FOLLOWED ME!!! That's it. I'm done. Even if I don't officially win this contest - I have won. I am furiously happy!

Another Update: Pipsqueak won the contest!
