Announcing our brand-new Chick Blog, a fun and serious collection of writings and blogs by and about women. You won't just find stories about lip gloss here, but you'll find some of those, too. Enjoy, my chickadees, and the men who are obsessed with us. You're welcome in the Chick Chamber, too, as long as you're respectful of the grrls in charge.

Happy parade.

Before bolting in search of a cocktail—sorry, Ray—I should add that the new Chick Blog is going to be a new archive of sorts for Ali and Emily's columns, along with any others deemed "chick" in nature. We have so friggin' solidly taken that word back, eh? Can I also mention that this chick-in-a-crown is one of my favorite covers ever (from Chick Issue, two years ago)? (I have a blow-up in my office, in fact.) And get this: Jimbo and James actually photographed a real chick—borrowed by Natalie Irby by Dixie Feed & Seed on Medgar Evers—modeling on Jimbo's desk at Article. Beat that. And I'm not going to tell you where we goto the tiny crown. (OK, it was Photoshopped, but that little chicken was real.)

The world's tiniest model. While we had 'er, though, we shoulda turned 'er loose. I've felt guilty about that part for two years now.

I've always wanted a small chicken. Damn you Donna. I went to Hal and Mals looking for you and I found Canadians and Shiner Bock. This is not a good thing. Jesus. That chicken is cute. And, I'm drunk.

When I first saw this chick photo, I thought it was about as perfect as it could get. Talk about striking a pose! I see attitude! (in a good way) Love the hot pink background too... Thanks for sharing the story of how it came to be. Makes this photo even more appealing. BKS

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Screw Christmas! I still have that cover and that issue from before I wrote for JFP. I also have it on my wall :) It was the one that made me remember that since I was a little, bitty girl (yes, i was little bitty once!), all I wanted in the world was to be a writer. That issue and parade changed my life in so many ways! Great idea Donna! Love the new blog! AND I HAVE PARADE FEVER even after a week in Disney World!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, Ali, I arrived closer to midnight, fashionably late, of course. But I heard stories about you from one of the Canadians, if that makes you feel better.

Per the chick -- my favorite part is the little devil's propped-up foot. Talk about diva.

BTW, don't you love the new stripper poll in the Red Room? (Down, Frank, no one actually took their clothes off.) We've gone from cowboy chic to stripper chic in a few short weeks.

I freaked out about that stripper pole all night. You wouldn't assume that the Red Room putting in a stripper pole would force thirtysomething suburban MALES to get on it, would you? Was it the Canadian wearing all the jewelry? ;) The whole night was a cultural experience.

Jewelry? I don't know, he was big. Yeah, there were men there who had some serious repressed issues, I think. One in particular, but he didn't do the pole -- but I'm off on a private joke now. So never mind. It's going to be that kind of day. Must. Control. Myself. >8-D

I had a small chick when I was little. I found it in the field by our house in KY. We lived by a farm, I think (come on, I was, like, 3). Papaw said I could keep it amd mom got mad him. Anyhow, I think it died.

I was already sad that I had to miss Parade/SPQ Weekend but then when I discovered there was a friggin stripper pole, I was devastated. But at any rate, I love the new blog. And next time I come to town, the pole better still be there :)

I definately pulled a muscle trying to slide down the pole with both feet over my head.
