Me, Queen Elizabeth & Catherine Zeta-Jones. Seriously.

fierce listEvery now and then I get some really awesome news, and today would be one of those days.

I’m on More magazine’s annual Fierce List this year. As described by More, the Fierce List is a, “pride of lionesses … who’ve most impressed us with their brave stands, bold plans, daring artistry and kick-ass commitment.” Dude.

This year’s list of 54 women includes Queen Elizabeth, makeup-artist Bobbi Brown, singer Adele, Gloria Steinem, Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, women’s basketball coach Pat Summit, author Joan Didion, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, and … (gulp) … me.

I plead guilty to tooting my own horn on this one, but how likely is something like this going to happen again in my life?!?!! Probably never, I tell you! I’m in a magazine, y’all!  (imagine me dancing foolishly around my office in my sweats and unwashed face, because that’s exactly what I’m doing)

Go pick up a copy of More magazine’s May 2012 issue, on newsstands now and featuring Chelsea Handler on the cover, if you’re looking for inspiration. There are a lot of great stories in the Fierce List this year, featuring both famous and not-so-famous women. And thanks to all of you, because without you there’d be no way in hell I’d be on this list.
