My Side Job

Corynne is going to kill me for this, but along with my xoJane andxoVain duties, I just took on another job:Heading up the 5th-grade newspaper at Charlotte's school. So for anhour every Monday afternoon, I get to be here. Woohoo! I love thesekids.

Speaking of Corynne, we were all talking in the office as I wasleaving about which of us have cried over your comments. I have, Emilyhas, Madeline has (over a weekend), Mandy has, I'll bet Lesley has,Marci hasn't (yet), and as of today, Annie K has joined the club(though she is a total badass and while I was asking her if I couldtell you she cried, put her hand to the back of her head and said,"Wait, there's something hard in my hair.")

Anyway, Corynne and I maintain that Corynne gets the most hate ofanyone at xoJane or xoVain. She's cool with it. I would love to knowif any of you have been driven to tears by something you've read here.Because I'm pushing for number of tear-drops on the keyboard to be thenew Engagement Metric (just kidding--I am starting to get ready forthis SXSWi speech next week, so I am thinking that way). I'm justcurious if it's only us.

Whoops, I think I just lost some kids. Back to work....
