Introducing: Reader of the Week

In a weekend open thread a couple weeks ago, I asked you all to introduce yourselves and share a little about who you are and what makes you tick. The response was so overwhelming — and interesting to read — I thought we’d make a regular column out of it. So, beginning this month, I’ll post a “Reader of the Week” column once a week, highlighting one DW reader. Want to share a little about yourself with other readers? Email me at [email protected] with the phrase “Reader of the Week” in the subject line and I’ll send you a few questions to answer. Can’t wait to learn more about you!

    This is a fantastic idea! The open thread was extremely popular. I came in late to it because I worked all that weekend, but I loved reading through it all.

      I missed it too (because I got married that weekend)!! I was bummed to miss it, and got overwhelmed trying to read it all later… Maybe I’ll give it another shot though.

        maybe she WAS thinking about DW.. Perhaps she had a belligerent guest that she needs to ask us advice on ?

        Very possible. Maybe there should be an emergency DW website/email/hotline?

        omg, I would have LOVED to have had a DW distraction during my wedding weekend… I mentioned my wedding situation on here a few times, so I’m not going to detail it all over again, but the short version is that literally every single thing that could have gone wrong went wrong and I had a full mental breakdown the morning of my wedding. A DW break was very much needed!!

        Ah! so sorry to hear that. But now you’re married! To an awesome dude who hopefully wasn’t part of your wedding day drama!

    Rather than email – I’ll put it right out there: I’m hormonal as all hell right now. I had to stop taking my birth control pills so I could have some testing done, and oh my Goddess, I am so not enjoying this rollercoaster.

      Oh geez! I know what you’re going through! I switched birth control pills once and went on a hormonal rager unlike any other. That roller coaster was insane! It was also the same week the boyfriend went on a family vacation so people thought it was because he was away. People thinking I was a lame-o for being upset about that put me in even more of a hormonal pit!

      You’ll get back to normal soon!
