Dear Faithful Followers,
Please note that I have decided to go by this symbol:
Because as of January, I will be a monthly COLUMNIST for Chicago Parent Magazine! So when speaking my name aloud, I would suggest using "The-Columnist-Formerly-Known-as-Marianne."
Or more simply, "The Columnist."
I feel like Pinocchio when he became a real boy, but without the whole creepy Geppetto side-story thing.
In the meantime, feel free to pick up November's Chicago Parent to find me on sexy page 117. I have been told that the new column will "definitely appear closer to the front of the magazine at the start of the year."
I'm thinking page 103 has my name written all over it.
So thank you, gang. Thank you for continuing to support all my nonsense, clear bipolar tendencies, and horrible decision-making process in raising 3 kids.
In some small way, you are helping make the world a better, more dysfunctional place.
