The most important part being, of course, the presence of an open bar.
Rock on, Erica!
not the "heavy appetizers"?
the appetizers dissertate on man's insignificance in geological time. i do mean "man."
getting april fools jokes out of the way. lots to prepare for as minion terrosists are hatching plans. plus, i'm helping decorate for my rascal nephew's birthday on sunday. don't worry, nothing will ruin it, least of all some stupid news story. woweee, a 2007 Civic Scholar - honda keeps churning them out, don't they. wait....lemme turn up the tv, 'Josh Barnett, Commmmme on DoWn! You'r the next contestant on The Feit is Shite!'
Dan, You better start paying her more or she will be taking Joel Connelly's spot soon enough. You should probably give her a bigger office and more paid vacation time too.
ECB take Connelly's spot? Over Joel's dead... oh, never mind.
This has to be the slowest news day on the Slog, ever.
junkie, if you get your news from slug, we'll be able to track your slime trail. borrow a pair of dimwit's trainers for some good traction, he may even have an mp3 thingie, but obviously it doesn't come with headphones
Hey keenan, good one. Duh?
keenan, so bitter about slog...did they hurt you, hurt you bad? or is it displaced anger from somewhere else? my guess: the latter.
so nice of you to ask , ellarosa, and to guess. you could say i have narcissistic personality disorder, kind of like putting something out there and revelling in the responses. thanks for reminding me. i need to stop it. bye.
CONGRATULATIONS ERICA!! You definitely deserve it!
Congrats, Erica. I think. The award from the Muni League is certainly a mixed honor, but nice nevertheless. Their party certainly seems dull as dirt though. *yawn*
Next thing you know she'll run for City Council on the "Tear it down" Ticket.
Truth is this award is fully deserved, by any standard or measure. NOBODY covers City Hall like ECB. She and the SLOG are an essential read every day, by the well-informed among us (such as myself of course). Rock on indeed!
Congrats as well.
So I don't read what she writes, usually. What did she write that the Municipal League like so much?
Was it a review of the pussy paintings that have been gracing the slog pages of late??
You go Grrrlll!! We're mighty proud of our pretty princess!!!!
(take a few hankerchiefs and a big purse with you so that you can tote some of them heavy appetizers for later.)
Well deserved....congrats Erica.
She who can't get the facts straight!?
She who decides the "facts" before she investigates -- if she ever does!?
The Muni League has lost its freakin' mind -- and all credibility!
This must be some kind of joke.
This has been out for a little while. Why didn't you mention that it costs $50 to go? Erica does great work though no-one likes a cynic.
Congrats once again dollface! It's very bizarre (not the recognition, but it's origin) but that's what makes it fun, eh? I bet your folks are proud.
I just might (yikes) attend just for the experience of sharing the surreal air with you. Do you have to give a speech? no matter, either way, I'll be the drunk loudmouth in the back, yelling "speech, speech!" True to form, I know.
Regardless of the side of the issue we come down on, I will always be proud to know you and enjoy the pleasure of working with you. I appreciate your fairness, willingness to listen, sharp writing skills, your measured use of humor, subtle sarcasm and hard work ethic.
I hope DE BROS (Disabled Express Bus Riders Of Seattle) protest her ass.
Much as I like Josh, I can't think of a more deserving reporter for an award than Erica.
