Huffin' and Puffin'

Kids, yours truly is on The Huffington Post.

Now, I know what you're thinking. But, BeckEye, isn't The Huffington Post a website devoted to intelligent, thoughtful discussion of current events? Who let you in? Well, I have my ways.

Don't worry, I haven't given up Michael Johns for John McCain. Basically, it's just a short informational piece about The Women's Conference in Long Beach, with a few stupid pop cultural references thrown in (to prove that I actually wrote it).

Now is the time for you all to prove your love for me. Leave a comment! Please? Not here, there! And watch your language. (The guttermouths know who they are.)

wow Bono will be there...I must go so he can touch my forehead and heal me of all ills. Hopefully he will not be saving the world that weekend. No, he cannot pass up another photo op, he'll be there, cape and all.

What the hell is JLo going to do there?

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Dang, how did you get that gig? Congrats!

Nicely written, with a good opening hook.

Well done, you!
Yes, I'm commenting here, and not there, because I had to create an account there and I have to wait until they "activate" it. When that occurs, I shall comment there. Congratulations!

Beth said...

You are my HERO! I now get to brag to my friends that I was reading you before reading you was cool.

M@ said...

The Huffington Post is for losers. ;)

Falwless said...

How can I possibly leave a comment with this seething jealousy blinding my very eyes? Tell me that, Miss Big Shot!

Seriously, how cool! CONGRATUFUCKINGLATIONS!

Dr Zibbs said...

Not to steal your thunder but I wrote the Great Gatsby. Seriously though, great job. My present to you will be to add a comment on Huffington mentioning That Blue Yak. That's should give you some more web cred.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Well done, you! I shall leave you a pithy and through-provoking comment over there, as soon as I get rid of my dumb.

fran said...

I shall wipe away the sting of jealous tears long enough to congratulate you heartily :)

pistols at dawn said...

Nice. I am impressed, but not enough so to create an account over there and make some comment about shopping.

Scott said...

congratulations, that is big time :)

Grant Miller said...

No evite??? WTF>

SkylersDad said...

They make you sell your soul to post a f-ing comment over there! So I am joining the others here in saying Bo-Yah!!

FranIAm said...

Wow, color me impressed!

I am waiting for my background check to be completed... when they say I can comment, I will.

You rock sister girl!

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

get the hell out of here! I am so impressed I fell off my bed!

Bono? Long Beach? I live near Long Beach....I'm there.

In all seriousness, congratulations this is a BIG DEAL!!!!!!!!!!

Chancelucky said...

Congratulations Beckeye, Nice writeup, but I still don't get why Bono's there.

bloody awful poetry said...

Congratulations on the Awesomeness! And yes, when you're famous and cool and all that shit I can brag about I was reading your blog and stuff long before you were famous. And, uh, not so cool. No, no, you were BORN cool.

Bond said...

WOW...congrats

Tony Alva said...

With this gang of misfits here, present company included, I'm surprised you'd even tell us that you were posting over there or otherwise risk doing what Pistols was suggesting. Trust us on this: You don't want us commenting on your post at the Huff.

Red said...

This is so awesome! Congrats! You totally make me want to drive to Long Beach to check it out.

Tanya Espanya said...

Well done, superstar!

Cormac Brown said...

Congratulations!

Cool, when are you going to be a pundit on CNN or MSNBC? Because that usually comes with.

Cormac Brown said...

Not mention that now the rest of the country is aware that The Pop Eye is all knowing and all seeing.

genn6 said...

Nice job, girl! I'm already a registered user at Huffpost, you should have a comment pending approval from the G. You did great with the content. ;)

X. Dell said...

Interesting piece. That seems like an interesting admixture of folks (Steinham and Rice in the same room?).

So, will you be schlepping out to CA to take part in this?

Gifted Typist said...

Nicely piece and nice real estate for the piece.

Pop culture is the new politics. When the politicians learn this, young folks will start coming out of vote again.

Moxie said...

I live in Long Beach...why don't you come to the convention, preferably on Arianna's dollar, hmm? I know most of the fancy schmancy places and I am well versed in the ghetto parts of our fine city.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
