You Are Not Dumb

I am actually in the office for our staff meeting today for the first
time in 2 weeks and there's nothing like sitting around that
conference room table with the rest of the xoJane editorial staff
(including Emily, who is not supposed to be here but snuck in today
anyway) with that speaker phone in the middle featuring contributors
and a lovely reader, brainstorming (equals talking about personal
things that are not even tangentially work-related and then maybe
turning them into post or gallery ideas for the site). I would love to
have you on the call today.

I also like being here physically for these meetings cause on that
speaker phone you can't DOMINATE properly when calling in remotely.
And god knows I like to talk about myself a lot.

It's at 2 pm ET today.

And I won't call any of your ideas or input dumb. (That was just so
there would be a tie-in to the visual here -- but I do think it is
important to never say anything about yourself that you wouldn't say
about your child or pet. And this assumes you are not abusive to
children or pets. I am going to give you other examples of this when
I'm not on my touchscreen.)

Also: have my period.

Also: [erased this ]

If you have your period or are willing to tell me when you did or
didn't have it last, or why making this period reference is just below
us all, let me know here so that we can give you the dial-in number.

Ramble with you soon!
