Wikipedia redux

I have a long and colorful history with Wikipedia. I wrote about it here. That article garnered a scathing letter to the editor that was authored by the World's Most Exalted New Coke Expert.

Much to my surprise, an Erin O'Brien Wiki page has been written by the good Mr. Geoffrey A. Landis.

tee-hee!

Let's see how long this one lasts. I am grinning from ear to ear.

Holy Haleakala! Geoffrey Landis is the real thing. Nicely done!

Toby said...

So your going the Paris route? Any publicity is good publicity? I commend you, my hands all over you.

Erin, I can't wait for your next. I still see in minds eye walking in and out of that library.

The bold move to change up the lunch.

Loved every minute of it.

I think it needs a picture. A sexy Erin picture...

Good for you I think it will stick. I kinda added myself to wikipedia about a year ago, I thought in a covert sort of way , but boy the booted me quicker than ...dysentary. All I did was add myself to a famous list of offroad enduro legends, who reads this? Booted out onto the boarwalk like some sort of fraud?
Yours will stay, this one will stick, cause its for true. Kind Regards JW

ha, that dude who got mad at you's nutso. yay for your wiki page!
wiki is fun. i try to avoid it though, because it is a MAJOR timewaster!!


p.s. are you ever going to do live blogging? i mean, the thing is there, taunting me, but you never are there to talk to :-(

It mentions nothing of your fine breasts. An enormous oversight, don't you think?

ajooja said...

That's so cool.

Carla said...

Hmm...that guy is a "CASE" and a half, don't ya think? Crazy. Glad you got a new page.

Jesus Toast said...

Can I have a wiki page yet?

hal said...

I second Jane. A mention of the coolest boobies known to man is urgently needed.

Cappy said...

Words are OK, but how about more boobs?

Hedy De Vine said...

Fab article! And even fab-er is the response letter from that Case bloke. I think you deserve a promotion and a raise for having such a strongly-worded letter written about you. Keep up the good work.

Erin O'Brien said...

Phil: Geoffrey Landis is indeed the real thing.

Toby: Thanks. And I feel those hands of yours, baby.

Chickie: I don't dare touch the page. It's Monday a.m. and I'm surprised as hell to find it still up there.

JW: Thanks for casting this good Wiki mojo spell. Are you a sorcerer too?

Shaina: I agree about it being a time sinc. But wiki's got me plenty of attention as well. Tee-hee!

JJ: I think they have to win an award or something first. Or do something spectacular, like climb Mount Everest on their own and that would be way tough on my nipples.

Ajooja: Thanks, you're cool too, baby.

Carla: What? You think bragging about doing 20,000 edits is crazy? I'm sure the New Coke babes are falling all over him.

JT: And here I thought this was you!

Hal: Two votes, two boobs. I'll see what I can do. But what makes them cool? Do they lounge sexily in the back of the bar while a cool jazz band plays? Do they know cool people? Are they chilly to the touch?

Cappy: Yet another boob vote. That makes three. Hm. Maybe Jane will loan me one of hers.

Hedy: That letter just cracked me up and my editor earned my undying for his response.

Well, of course any of you are able to add one, if you happen to have a public domain picture of Erin (Wikipedia will delete images not in the public domain)... my suggestion, if you want the article to stay unedited by the powers, is that this image should *not* be an image of Erin's boobs...
