The Dark Overlord Gave, And He Hath Taken Away

Illustration for article titled The Dark Overlord Gave, And He Hath Taken Away

Well folks, in case you haven't heard, today is my last day working at Jezebel.

I will try to keep this as short and sweet as possible before I go off and live out every girl's childhood dream of watching Mommie Dearest while knitting in their underwear (otherwise known as "unemployment"). Don't worry about me though, a young man from Nigeria has contacted me about an exciting business opportunity! You see, his billionaire brother needs an American to hold onto some of his money for a few months, and I'll be able to keep a few million dollars for myself. All I have to do is send him all of my personal information and bank account numbers. Seems like a good deal to me.


Anyways, I want to thank all of the wonderful women I have worked with at Jezebel. I am still dumbfounded as to how I successfully tricked Anna into hiring me to work with such a talented and hilarious group of women. Moe, Dodai, Megan, Jessica, Sadie, Tracie, Jennifer and (especially) Anna are some of the most intelligent and patient people I have ever worked with. Also, Margaret, Katy and Cheryl are some of the best and hardworking interns floating around the blogosphere. I am really proud to have worked at Jezebel and see it develop over the past year and a half.

I would also like to give a special "thx" to the dark overlord, Nick Denton, for occasionally remembering to give me money. Even though that time has come to an end, it was fun while it lasted.

I want to give all of the commenters and readers a quick shout-out for being so funny and (usually) showing me support. Thanks for always keeping me on my toes.

Oh, Maria. Tell us you'll still hang around under an assumed name, on your own time, without the absurd expectation of being, yk, paid.

Then we'll make cotton candy and blow bubble kisses and snark and it'll all be good.

Well, yk, without the food or the rent, or whatnot. That part, notsogood. But the bubble kisses, they're good, right? RIGHT?
