The Last Swishy-Manic Hurrah THIS WEEKEND!

I met Swishy via a blind blogger date back THREE years ago when we went to see Jennifer Weiner at a book signing. And yep, it was true BBFF (Best Blogger Friend Forever!) status at like the very first sight!

She currently lives a lengthy car drive away from me. Now, technically, she is moving closer to me (if she flies to my house instead of drives to my house!

: (

This is making me sad, but with the advent of the internet and Instant Messaging and email, I know our friendship will continue as it has been for the past three years.

I just did a search in my Blogger Dashboard for SWISHY. I have written about her 48 times in three years! (49 if you count the one time I inadvertently used her REAL NAME!) What does that average out to? You know I suck at math. Anyone got a calculator?

We have had some wild fun times together. Here are a few of my faves:

Emily Giffin Love

The toilet incident

Getting Swishy's Ears Peirced

The Spry, Drink-Till-You-Want-Me Night

A Fabulous Author Night

Chicago's Printer's Row Part I

The Nightmare Continues - Part II Chicago's Printer's Row Weekend

Love you Swishy! Get here safely in that brand new car of yours so we can go to the city and hang out, and do what we do best -- You know I'm your "wing man!"

Not the last Swishy-Manic Hurrah! Surely she'll visit again, right?

And ummm here's the geek in me coming out. That's an average of 16 times a year or just under once every three weeks you blog about Swishy. I won't get into how many posts you've had which would give you a true frequency.

Enjoy your time. And the ear piercing CRACKS me up! At least this weekend is supposed to be fantastic!

Hi there --

I'm a big Emily Giffin fan, too (and also a writer).

I'd love it if you have a chance to check out my website at I just signed a publishing contract with the same house as Jodi Picoult and Jennifer Weiner, and I'm hoping to get early feedback from book lovers. If you like my website and want to sign up for my private monthly email in the box on my website homepage, I can send you the first chapter of my book as soon as it's through the editing process.
I'd love to hear more about your book, too.
