Today call me sunny.

Today call me sunny (which is generally true; in fact I’m optimistic and cheery to an annoying degree). But at the moment I’m also guest-posting over at The Suniverse and I thought that “Today Call me Universal” might sound braggy and also that Suniversal isn’t a real word.

Not that braggy is.

But let that go for now. Because I’m thrilled to be visiting The Suniverse and if you already know her you’ll understand why.

My Suniversal crush began the first time I visited her site and saw her tagline – Ketchup is for winners, Ted .

Then, when she shared with her readers the joys of finding a pubic hair in a cookbook she’d checked out of the public library? I subscribed.

But after discovering she loves Nancy Drew (arguably the best of all the titian-haired virgin sleuths), I damn near fell in love.

She is irreverent, politically savvy, raw and honest. Plus she likes Eminem and The Gilmore Girls. And if I ever get a chance to have lunch with Tina Fey (it could happen), I’m inviting my girl Suniverse to come along. In the meantime, we’ll both have to settle for reading Bossypants again.

And again. And again.

So please head over and check out her place now. You won’t be sorry, I promise…

…unless you’re my mother and father, that is.

If you are my parents, I apologize to you both for the post you’re about to read.

I checked with Nancy first and she said it was “definitely not too much” so you can blame your younger daughter for any embarrassment you may incur. (Typical, huh?)

p.s. I love you! And that’s Sunny’s button there on the bottom. The one that says “Suck it!”

I would never say that, Mom. Not to your face.

    Hmmmmm. When you ran this past me, I don’t recall bring told I would get public credit for having given the “go ahead”. As soon as I crawl out from the bus under which you’ve just thrown me, I’ll head on over to Suniverse. Love her!

    As love you…but must you ALWAYS give credit where credit is due? 🙂

    Hee hee.

    Also, I was the one who stained your jeans after forgetting to ask if I could borrow them.

    (I will keep confessing this same fact that you already know every time I need leverage. Or something.)

    They’re my weakness.
