Oh. Em. Gee.

You know Kim Teasdale?  As in, Paper In The Works, colouring guru and general "I wanna be her when I grow up" kinda gal?

I got an email from her a couple of weeks ago.  A rather flattering email in which she announced that she's starting a new challenge blog and she'd seen my work, and she thought I'd be a perfect fit for the DT... would I be interested??

I wish I could tell you that I nonchalantly opened my email and read it with the cool-ness of someone... well... cool.

Alas, I cannot.

My jaw literally dropped and then I said... "HOLY  F&%$  KNUCKLE!"

Yep.  I am that cool.  I can't even use expletives in a cool way...

I wrote a hurried email in reply basically saying that I'd started speaking gibberish as soon as I read her email and that I've been blog stalking her for AGES...

There's that cool streak again.  ;-)

And of course I said YES.  She may live to regret the invitation...

All I have left to say squeal is this...

My name is on Kim's blog!
MY name is on KIM'S blog!
And I totally didn't put it there!
