I blame Jodi.

Acceptance Speech

Hello everyone,
I have been informed that I am the BLMVP. First of all, I'd like to thank my competitors, Jodi and Lindsay. It was an honor just to be nominated with these lovely and talented ladies, but, let's be honest, the best woman won.

Actually, Nicole probably picked me because she felt bad that her stupid cat peed in my clothes.

As many of you know, I now have a master's degree, so that means I can boss all of you around, except for KJW, who also has a master's degree.

Because of my extensive qualifications, I am going to go outside the norm for picking a book. I am picking two.

"Two?" you ask incredulously. That's right, bitches! Two! As we all know, Ski to Sea 2010 is approaching, and, I want everyone to have plenty of time to read the stunning book I have selected THE HANDMAID'S TALE by MARGARET ATWOOD.

So, I propose, to enhance the fun-ness of our pre-Ski to Sea carbo-loading/bonding, we take a page from 2008's book (literature joke!) and each read a Sweet Valley High book and prepare a short book report.

Let me know what y'all think.

PPS. At the next BL meeting we are going to watch the movie.

PPPS. I've already read the first 10 pages.
