This May Be the Pinnacle of My Career

So, I was at the WordCamp US party for speakers, sponsors and volunteers, and three times over the course of this evening I was introduced as the woman who was the Blue Screen of Death at WordCamp Philly in October.

I may have to face the fact that this will be how I’m known for the rest of my career. Doesn’t matter what plugins I write, what sites I develop or how I contribute to WordPress. I am, and always will be, Blue Screen of Death Woman.

It’s not a bad gig. BSODW is way more photogenic than I am in real life. And it’s a lot of fun freaking people out by drifting up to them and standing there, not saying anything.

But, to whoever eventually writes my obit: could you maybe not lead with this? Please?
