I had promised all of you a special surprise. If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know the surprise has kind of been revealed. For those who don't like 140-character snippets about what someone's having for lunch or how they just slept with the pizza boy, here you go:
Ben, of No Ordinary Rollercoaster fame, has paired up with me for another co-blogging event. Some of you were clamoring for this...well, strongly suggested... well, said it wouldn't be the worst thing if Ben and I followed up on our first co-blog event last November, when we gave advice to guys.
How do you top such a thing?
With strippers and ice cream. But that's neither here nor there.
We created a fake Cosmo magazine.
Let that smolder for a second like a True Blood vampire in the sun*.
Starting Monday, you'll be treated to an entire week's worth of Cosmo-inspired articles, from some of the regulares features to a few of our own features, complete with artwork just like the magazine. It's almost like the real thing, except free and without the sense of shame. You'll never want another one of my silly reviews of Cosmo again. (I'll do them anyway because I'm a pushover.)
In this series, there are some photos that may cause people to disown us, there's lots of Cosmo-esque debauchery (just wait until you read Ben's cover story), and even a special guest writer.
Come back here or on Ben's blog Monday, and we'll direct you to the special short-term blog (a stog, as the kids say) we set up just for the occasion. I'll have daily reminders on here to remind you what's up that day, too.
*As long as it's not Bill or Eric... or the Count from Sesame Street, either.
