Plan B Survey Update, etc.

Dear Readers,Giuseppe Drunk on Eggnog

Happy Holidays. I love you (even though you don’t leave comments rendering me helpless to exchange in witty repartee with you but also simultaneously intriguing me as to your identity and thoughts). Somehow this tiny modest blog has managed to reach 1,000 hits. I have no idea how, but I’m so excited! It encourages me to post even when I feel like watching Law and Order instead. (FYI USA is in the Mariska-Short-Hair phase of re-runs, and Elliot isn’t quite so angry.)

Another thing I’m excited about? The Plan B Survey (see spiffy button to your right) already has 500 responses! Women from around the nation (nearly every state is represented so far) have taken a moment to fill out the survey. It is so very exciting. Thank you to all of those who filled it out, sent it to friends, posted it on your page, etc. It really means so much. If you have any suggestions at all about places to send it to or people to contact please let me know (college organizations, college health services, women’s organizations, listservs, Google groups, Facebook groups, people you know with power at magazines, etc). It has been more difficult than I thought to get people willing to help out with this (1. it’s a controversial issue, 2. a lot of people are wary of survey research and probably think we are evil marketers, which we aren’t!). Suggestions would be SO appreciated.

Finally, the posts may be less frequent over the next week or so. I’ll be in the Smokies without much internet access (or cell phone service for that matter…oh, my poor BlackBerry!). And the only internet access will be provided by a landline which I will no doubt be fighting with my sister for control of. Maybe I should challenge her to a daily game of Scrabulous and the winner takes all (landline) for the day.

Happy Holidays, Happy Christmas, Merry Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza, Merry Festivus, Splendid New Year!



PS. JPR sent this to me this morning and it is the most cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life. I think I might drop out of graduate school and devote my life to saving red pandas, regardless of their actual endangered condition. If I had a tail (and my Dad said I did when I was born and they had to snip it off! At which point a five-year-old Valerie would squeal and run to Mama asking if it was true!) I’d definitely opt for this fantastic stripey duster look!
