    Hello and Happy Friday!

    I’m emailing you today to get contact information for who the best person would be to send a flyer about an event and invite one of your writers out to said event, starting in September.

    Thank you,

    I really like it “That Girl”. I think I need an anonymous vent page too. Youve been added to my favorites. I know you’ll be providing an excellent resource for filling my need “to feel like someone understands my frustration about all of the crap out there”! Keep up the honest work.
