I'm sure all of you have realized by now how much I simply hate showing off stuff that our contributors are getting noticed for. And I'm horrible at self-promotion too. *whistles innocently* I guess I'll just have to suck it up... *grins*

So what's going on with our readers? What big news do you have to share?

Some how I have no problem envisioning Waymon as a bridezilla...

LOL - I'm trying to picture Waymon with Madeline Kahn's hair from the end of Young Frankenstein!

My blog - which deals with science, space issues, software, brains, and increasingly LGBT rights - has just been deemed of "national significance" with "lasting cultural value" by the Australian National Library, and as such is now being archived by their PANDORA system.

I'd had a very few articles from a group blog I contributed to before I transitioned archived under the similar US Library of Congress MINERVA system, but not a complete body of work.

I fear this will mislead future data archaeologists into over-estimating my importance in the grand scheme of things. I'm not chopped liver, but compared to, say, Mercedes Allen, let alone Donna Rose or Prof Lynn Conway, not in the same league.

Besides which, my ego is so big it already enters the room 10 minutes before I do.

Way to go, Zoe! I'm so proud of you.

*big hugs for Zoe*

"Bridezilla" indeed. I happen to know she is wearing a nice sedate Chanel number. And on her wedding night she will lose her virginity with style. (from memory, but with style!)

Oh, accomplishments! Today I bought a digital camera and hope in the near future to learn how to use it. Then my "facebook" can still be my album.

Zoe, congrats on being recognized "down under." Bil has a research study he would like to conduct...
