Before you read on, please keep in mind Im not usually so slow witted. It's just when someone emails you at midnight with this kind of news...from a magazine light years (and two weeks...according to the United States Postal system apparently) away, you tend to get a bit slow on the uptake.

Conversation with Sid from Verbal Diorhhea (link on my sidebar or just click on her name on the first line).

Sid: Hey! So I was reading this month's Cosmo magazine (the South African version) and guess who's blog got an honourable mention. Congrats chickie. Wish that I had the article with me to place onto my blog. Maybe tomorrow?

~E: Im so confused? What blog? Your blog got honorable mention? Congratulations!!!!!

Sid: No. Your blog was mentioned. Your e-deconstructed blog was mentioned in Cosmo magazine.

~E: Huh? Ok, Im so confused. How the hell was my blog mentioned in a magazine? You're making it up right? Like as a weird way of giving me a bloggy award or something?

Sid: No I'm serious. I'll bring the article in tomorrow morning, scan it and show it to you. Your blog was mentioned. I don't know how they found your blog but them mentioned the post where you showed everyone what you carry around in your handbag

~E: NO SHIT?!?! Wow. Please please please scan the article...I want to see it.

Sid: Will do.


Ok, Sid. If this is a set up for what I anticipate to be a really seriously satisfying joke, I'm still waiting for the punchline! Guess, we will see.

I hope it's the real thing, because it's not April (Fool's Day). ; )

Okay you're making me feel like I'm insane. Like maybe I dreamt the whole thing. I'm actually thinking of racing home at lunch time just to find the damn article.

Cora said...

Cosmo reads and mentions blogs? Really? Think what that will do to your blog traffic, ~E!! Wowza.

It doesn't sound like a joke to me. Do you monitor your stats? Of course you do. We ALL do. If you have a sudden spike in visitors from South Africa, then you'll know it's not a joke. Talk about a needle in a haystack!

Scope said...

That would be so COOL.

I mean as a practicle joke.

She could even use Word to fake up the article from the magazine.

(See, right there, I've made you doubt the proof. I'm EVIL like that sometimes.)

Sassy Britches said...

Shut UP! I totally hope this is true. How exciting!

SkylersDad said...

Will you still remember all of us "little people" when you are a rich and famous Cosmo blogger? ;^)

B.E. Earl said...

Very cool. You can go to Cosmo's South African site ( to look for it, but I have no idea what to search for.

words...words...words... said...

I am so glad I was already your friend before this happened. I can't wait to bitch about how you've changed!

If this is true, and I don't see why it wouldn't be, then congrats! You hit the blogger lotto!

Fancy Schmancy said...

That would be so freakin' cool!

Girl Interrupted said...

Oh wtg!! About time too ... your blog is totally Cosmo-worthy!

Hope they picked up on your make-up tips blog too, I'm sure a lot of women would be interested in that one.

I'm so seriously impressed! I love Cosmo! :P
