And, of course, since I was rushing to finish last night, I found a typo this morning. Derg! Basically, I have a couple days to make a "bathing bikini" an actual thing. Dear fashion writer friends: if you could spread the word about how "summer 2012 is going to be all about the bathing bikini," you'd really be doing me a solid.

My Kardashian-Humphries Story (Get it? It's SHORT!)
I'm a bit sleepy today after spending all night crying over the Kardashian-Humphries divorce. Oh, and also because I was finishing a new short story. (As short as Kim's marriage? You betcha!) The CBC's Canada Writes: Short Story Contest deadline was 11:59pm last night and I just made it, hitting the submit button at around 11:30pm. I wasn't planning on entering since the word count is so low (max of 1500) and since I loathe paying to enter contests -- it just reeks of that distinguished poetry anthology I was SO stoked about getting into in grade six. But, since I'm basically still in grade six (see title of blog post), the prospect of being published sucked me in again and I found myself forking over some cash and throwing my story into the ring.
