Let me start by saying I absolutely stink as a blog hoppee. I was supposed to post this little stop yesterday and it totally blew past me, as work has been hectic, and I've just been falling onto bed face first every night. Megan, I apologize for being tardy, but I'm here, now!
With that mea culpa out of the way, I must tell you about the lovely Megan Dougherty, or as you may know her, The Bitchy Stitcher. I first found her blog more than three years ago. I worked at a job I hated and to make myself feel better, I would peruse blogs from time to time. Hers made me snort with laughter. I'm not kidding you. I snorted. At my desk. In a gopher farm. The first time she dick-rolled me (you know what I'm talking about), it was love. A fan was born.
I admired her from afar, thinking she was a really cool chick and probably wouldn't give two snaps about me. And then it happened. We joined the same vulgar quilting bee. I got to know her through the camaraderie of the group online. I was up close and personal with her tender heart, her snarky wit, and her beautifully creative self. Turns out, she farts just like everyone else, though she'll tell you she farts rainbows, so that must mean they smell like Skittles. (I told you I'd do it, Megan!)
Of course, that doesn't make me admire her any less. I love her even more!
When Megan said she was self-publishing a collection of some of her essays including new material), I KNEW I had to get my hands on it. I ordered a signed copy for my mom for her birthday. Last week, as I was home visiting her, she began reading Quilting Is(n't) Funny and was literally laughing out loud, just as I knew she would.
