We've been working on the LEP for a while now and I'm just relieved that the cat is finally out of the bag. I am total rubbish at keeping super exciting secrets and I have wanted to blab. my. freaking. mouth. off. for. forever. now.
This is mostly because I know how many of you awesome readers are total geeks and love superheroes like me and I can't even tell you how many times I have wanted to yell, "it'sasuperheroclubforpenpalsandyoushouldtotallyjoinandwe'redoingreallycoolthings." In fact, if you go back and re-read old posts, every time I used the word "mail," what I was actually trying to say is the above.
I'm the person who gives you a gift and is then bouncing off the walls for you to open it. In fact, before you've ripped the corner of the wrapping paper, I'm shouting "It's a time machine! I got you a flipping time machine!" Because I'm just so damn excited for you to open (what I think is) the most perfect present and you're taking so freaking slow and ohmigod, will you just open the damn thing already? Don't you even think about Monica Geller-ing that wrapping paper. RIP IT! RIP IT GOOD.
And that's what it's been like for me, keeping LEP a secret. A person just isn't meant to keep all that enthusiasm inside! So now I'm showering you all with my excitement and enthusiasm for this project! *showers everyone!* Can you feel it through the screen? Raining down on you? Ew, except for that. I don't know what that was but I'd wipe it off with a wet cloth and get an umbrella...
Seriously though, BIG THANKS to everyone who has already joined LEP. Julie and I have some really cool things planned for the year and we're really happy you're going to be part of it.
