Basically, the Most Exciting Day of My Life Is Happening

Ahh! I have a post featured on this awesome site called The Hairpin. It’s called How to Mount a TV When You Have No Boyfriend, No Prospects, and Lack the Shamelessness Required to Ask for Help.  Go here to read it!

And if I don’t post anything else for a while, it’s likely because I’ve died of happiness.

  1. Hey Leigh,
    Your TV post is awesome. I laughed, I related, I had thoughts and feels – so when I got to the comments I was a little surprised to see the vitriol. People are jerks, and if your article had been posted anywhere else it might have been assumed that you were, I don’t know, telling a story, rather than so condescending as to speak on behalf of your entire gender – because god forbid you might be an actual, individual person with their own experiences. I really like Hairpin, and I usually enjoy the banter that goes on in the comments, but every so often the frenzy comes out again and I get all fired up to reply, but because I hate registering for things, instead I track the author down on their private blog to write a little missive reminding them that, despite the squawking mobs, you’re a fantastic writer and your article had me on-side from word one. Good job.

    1. Thanks so much for the kind words, Will! I’m really glad you liked the story. Everyone’s entitled to his/her own opinion… I tried to not let the negative comments get to me too much (and have to admit that I mostly failed on that score). It’s really nice to hear that you enjoyed the writing. I appreciate your taking the time to let me know!
