The Editor's Number One Pick at AOL!
Today has been a magical day for me. I was going to say "so far", but even if nothing else happens, it was a great day. The Editors at AOL chose my Journal as their Number One Pick. I am both thrilled, honored and humbled... all at the same time. I'm so glad I didn't die before seeing this! It can be part of my eulogy now. I can almost see it ... A refined gentleman with an English accent, wearing an expensive suit stands behind the podium. He glances down at my casket from time to time as he speaks eloquently of my life's accomplishments. (I have no idea who he is, but he looks important). Mourners dab their eyes with hankies. Ray is sobbing uncontrollably. Poor man. He doesn't look as though he will ever get over this devastating loss. The Englishman has to speak louder now as he continues my eulogy. "... and she was named the Editor's Number One Pick at AOL for her Journal during the week of January 22, 2004 ..." The mourners stand, clapping excitedly. And not everybody gets to have THAT fantasy! Thanks AOL. (Does this entitle me to a free month now? Just wondering...)
