Yeah. riiiiiight...

You all know that I'm a stay at home mom, right?
Well, someone needs to inform the Biltmore Who's Who. Apparently I've been "recently chosen as a potential candidate to represent the professional and business community of [your town], North Carolina, in the Biltmore 2009 Honors Edition of Who's Who Among Executives and Professional Women.
The Publishing Committee selected [me] as a potential candidate, based upon [my] current standing as well as criteria from executive and professional rosters. Given [my] background, the Publishing Director believes [my] profile would make a fitting addition to [their] Honors Edition publication."
Really? *cough* Excuse me. I think I must have swallowed wrong. or something...
There's no cost to be listed. We'll just have confirmation of your mailing address, that's all. So we can solicit you to buy the Who's Who book. The Honors edition. It's chock full of other putzes who fell for this gag. And you can be listed right there with them! We don't want anything from you, really. Nothing at all...

In high school ... one of my friends thought she was the kitten's pjs because she got into the high school edition of that ... I was like dude ... they asked the kid who was last in our class to be in it too ... you're not special. You paid to be in it.

Loser!

Yeah I got it in ghigh school too. I did not buy the 29.95 Gold Embossed Special Edition then, either. I probably should see about getting that "desperate dork" stamp that must be on my forehead removed.

But, Milli! To see your name in print! Next to all those other successful business and professional folks of [your town]! You can't put a price on that.
