File Under, "Huh???"

This may well be a sign of our warped sense of humor, but we found this bit of Inbox fluff perversely amusing:

Subject line: Cass, Are You a Powerful Woman in the Channel? Nominate Yourself Today for Our 2013 List!

In our more deluded moments we like to think of ourselves as Immensely Influential in a kind of understated postfeminist, self effacing kind of way. Once or twice, we have wondered if we aren't downright Leaderful? On the otter heiny if we were all that powerful, would we really have to nominate our ownself for high honors such as this?

Women who are really in the Channel probably have minions who take care of the mundane details. Who knows? Perhaps they even make stroganoff.

As a member of the Patriarchy, where are *my* minions?

For Powerful Woman in the Channel, it's hard to top Gertrude Caroline Ederle.

Yeah, I have a "subscription" to CRN. I say "subscription" because they keep sending me crap I never asked for (mostly their magazine) and I keep throwing it in the trash. And they WILL NOT STOP.

Yu-Ain, there appears to be a serious Minion Shortage in this great nation. If I had more Minions, I'd order them to do something about it ASAP :p

You already have itinerant eskimos doing your editorial dirty work. Now you want minions?
Yanno, someone somewhere must have once said, "At some point in time you have to ask yourself, 'When is it *enough*?'"

"Are you a struggling female mid-level professional of no special repute? Would you like us to help you think of yourself as extraordinary for a woman?"

Exactly!

Hey!!! I resemble that remark! :)

You know I didn't mean that as a description of you! Just the message these folks are sending.

Oh, absolutely! I thought your comment nailed it - I was just playing along :p
