Thank you for your supporting my mission to save the small pigeon on my patio.
Thank you, for continuing to love me, despite my constant complaining about BlogHer, insulting Portland’s lack of diversity, falling asleep at classical concerts, sending cartoon images of my Penis to female bloggers, turning Irving Berlin into a foul-mouthed sex addict, and being so cheap that I buy ninety-nine cent shoelaces.
Thank you, kind souls, for your advice in helping me plan to achieve my lifelong dream — 50 States, 50 Women. (someday!)
Thank you for your support as I took the big step this Fall and finally started therapy.

Thank you to all the wonderful people I met for the first time this year, such as everyone involved with Leahpeah’s Bloggers Live.
Thank you to all of the female bloggers I fell in love with this year (at least in my mind), even if it was only for a day.
Thank you, everyone, for allowing me to follow your lives on your blogs.
Thank you for letting me be your “friend” on Twitter and Facebook.
Thank you for letting me ogle you photos on Flickr and say things to myself like “Holy crap, who would have thought that some dull mommyblogger was so f***ing HOT!”
2007 was a stressful year for me, as it was for many of you. There were illnesses and deaths in our midst. I know of at least five bloggers who got divorced or separated this year. Luckily, joy and happiness is always around the corner. Some of you got married. Some got promotions at work. I even know one blogger who had her first orgasm in seven years! What could be more hopeful than that?!
I hope 2008 is a wonderful year for all of readers of Citizen of the Month, filled with happiness, love, kindness… and of course… many, many orgasms.
