Default Can I Toot My Horn?

The happy little freelancer chugged along and got some big editor to notice.

Let me know what you think!

The article seems to suggest that unicorns aren't real. What gives?

Other than that, (you might have mentioned that the article isn't unicorn-safe!) cool article and a good reminder for someone about to set up his garage gym. Thanks! And congrats on getting it in the WP.

Next time a "WARNING: Unicorn Spoiler Alert" might be in order.

That aside, I thought the article was great!

I really liked the article. It would have been nice to see this when I first came to SLC and had to "start over" in the gym.

Always good to read your stuff..

Default Unicorns Be Dammed!!!

They broke my little heart just like that Tooth Fairy tease and that Santa Baby who never gave me the convertible.

Unicorns- bah!

So what it's sour grapes 'cause I never made it to the Olympics, or nationals, or states, or level 2 gymnastics. Damn those one-horned, rainbow ridin', dream crushing, purple fools!
