She’s been with us from the very beginning, commenting on everything from thong underwear to basic mothering issues. She comments often and frequently early in the morning, when it really gets things moving. She’s endured the insults of other commenters and stayed loyal through it all. This week, though, she’s gone way above and beyond the call of duty, giving her everything to the Soccer Moms’ Hottie of the Day Award.
Fittingly, for her prize, Jacy gets to pick today’s World Cup Hottie, but first here is her acceptance speech:
I am honoured, humbled and delighted to have won the first Commenter of the Week prize from this most distinguished and hilarious blog!
I have been here since almost the beginning, when I noticed a link to Reject the Koolaid on a really crappy and barely literate blog that I have since stopped reading due to the utter inanity and vacuousness of its subject matter, its author and indeed, too many of its commenters. Tearfree's blog was like a Dorothy Parker-esque breath of fresh air.
As a mother, I wanted to bond with other mothers in the blogosphere. However, I was finding myself increasingly alarmed how some Mommy Bloggers seemed to have ... well .... consumed some sort of We-Love-All-Mommy-Bloggers-No-Matter-What-Shocking-Things-They-Reveal-About-Their Ineptitude/Shallowness-As-Parents-and-Human-Beings Koolaid.
On Reject the Koolaid, the intelligence level was vastly elevated and the "Mommys" here seem the type of devoted and smart Mommys I would happily spend time with. Plus, there's a soccer hottie every day!
I am sticking with Reject the Koolaid, as I have with Postcards from the Mothership and Andrea Gordon's excellent parenting blog at the Star, and am finding that day in and day out, Tearfree's posts are intelligent, extremely well-written and very funny. Someone should give her a writing gig!
I am here for the long haul, and treasure my newfound cyber-friendship with Tearfree, whoever she is. I adore her and her blog!We more than like you, Jacy. We totally heart you. You rock the comments sections!
p.s. You like me, you really really like me!!!
