I’m pleased to announce that the winner of our giveaway for I’m Not Hanging Noodles On Your Ears by Jag Bhalla is Michael May of Dubuque, Iowa!
That city holds a special place in the hearts of New Yorker devotees, and what’s even better is that Michael May writes all about the mystique of Dubuque on his blog The Dubuquer.
My favorite idiom is “bleed my lizard.”
In West Texas, if I say I need to “bleed my lizard,” I mean I need to urinate.
Thanks to the many people who entered, and better luck next time to all!
Hello! I’m Emily Gordon, an editor, critic, copywriter, and pre-web internet nut. Emdashes, born in 2004, spent many years as a New Yorker fan blog. The project garnered some nice compliments and press.
The blog’s now treading the territories of punctuation, publications, movies, design, and other things that stir me.
Over the years, I’ve worked with a brilliant brigade of culture writers, editors, and artists. You can read all about the people who've helped build Emdashes here at “Who We?” (That’s a New Yorker joke. Old habits die hard.)
I welcome submissions, questions, corrections, and ardent, obsessive contributors. I also host occasional book-related contests and giveaways. Questioners and publishers, just email me.
