Letter from the Editor.
Close your eyes. Imagine you are walking into a reasonably-sized banquet hall. There are streamers hanging along the walls and a large balloon arch entirely made up of weiner dog-shaped balloons. As you take your first steps into the banquet, small and quiet confetti cannons release a flurry of white and pink paper cuttings into the air. All your friends and family and a few strangers pop out and say, "Congratulations!"
Now open up your eyes. That was the party for the second anniversary of the Rachel Rogers Newsletter. Aside from it being fun to utilize your imagination, that was the most environmentally friendly way to throw a party. Otherwise, people would have to fly out and I would have to waste lots of balloon plastic and tiny papers to throw the party and I am trying to watch my ecological footprint, if you know what I'm saying.
I also am so impressed that you read all of that with your eyes closed. You all never cease to surprise me.
But yes, this is the second anniversary of the newsletter no one asked for! I want to extend a heartfelt thank you for reading all my nonsense about Fantasy Football teams, runaway cat drama, and lists of what kinds of snacks we have in the office. These are all things that are important to me and it's been very special sharing with you all. I especially love all the replies you send me. There are few things I love more than email.
Most importantly, I've been able to communicate the information that is the sole purpose of this email, my improv shows. Thanks to everyone who has come and watched me perform! At the very least, thanks for not unsubscribing to this email if you are one of the people who do not care about my shows (I bet you're in it for the think pieces).
I have absolutely no news to share this week. I have spent the whole week doing nothing but think about my second newsletter anniversary and scouring Facebook marketplace. If I told you what I was looking for, I would be revealing too much personal information. While it may not seem like it, due to the nature of this newsletter, do practice restraint when revealing personal details about my life. This is the internet after all.
On that note, I hope you've all had a wonderful Cybersecurity Awareness Month and you have two months to think of a perfect Christmas present/email to give me.
