I'm Freakin' Published!

Ohh Emm Gee! How excited am I? Can you hear the squealing in my words? 
Squeeeeeeeeee!

Books. Novels. These mean nothing to me now because my life-long dream has been realized. My submission for the Urban Dictionary has been APPROVED

I had come up with the word while describing the ancient sewing machine that my grandmother dug up for me a few months back. The more I thought about it, I just knew I was on to something - I just needed to pump up the "ghetto" in my definitions. Because, really? The UD world doesn't give a shit about someone's old sewing machine.

So, please gaze upon the brilliant literary musings of none other than myself. I'll be available for autographs later on today. If someone from the Pulitzer committee calls, they can speak with my agent!

And don't forget the merchandise! Oh, how I salivate over the idea of fresh merchandise. True, I don't benefit from these sales. I'd much rather you buy something from MY SHOP, but it's newly created merchandise nevertheless - so it must be celebrated. It's been an exciting morning, that's for damn sure. 

I think I need to take a nap.

  7. CONGRATS, yo! Get your 'Cunt Dragon' in there too! I thought it would mean 'fuckin' antique', like fugly. Maybe that's just me with my potty mouth. :/

  10. I love the urban dictionary. It's much more fun than the conventional dictionary, even if that one WAS awesome when I was a kid simply by containing 'penis' and 'vagina.' I'm older and more mature now though, and need bigger thrills.

    I know, right?
    I remember looking up "sphincter" in the dictionary when Wayne's World came out - I couldn't believe that was a real word. LOL

    @Pamela
    Thank you - I strive for only the best.

  25. That. Is. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I know someone who has added a word to the English language(or at least the urban English language). Epic.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Congrats! The English language will be forever better for your contribution to it. ;-)
    I do have to agree with another commenter though, Cunt Dragon is like the best name ever and I'm not usually comfortable with that.
