The E.W. Must List!!!

Entertainmentweekly2Holy tiny beaks, People, this is so bigtime. Cute O is listed in the Entertainment Weekly ‘Must List’ this week. The ‘Must List’ is their list of ‘Things we Love This Week"—the Holy Grail of Pop Culture, People! Having been a subscriber for years, and a big admirer of their snarky writing and overall magazine design, I’m extra STHUPER STHOKED!

Thanks, EW 😉 and thanks to all who wrote in about it, especially Heidi F.M. for scanning the page.




  1. Kudos, Meg–nobody deserves it more!!!

I found it advertised on news page, added to my daily review and click almost daily just to put a smile on my face. At the risk of soundling like a bad immitation of an American Idol judge, love, Love, luv, LOVE, LUUUUV, Cute Overload and your Rules of Cutness. CONGRATS on making the Must List!

  21. ♥'s G.D. & animals ☺ says:

  22. I love the Must List! Congrats, that is quite an honor! Keep up the great work.

  23. Whoa! You saw an ad on a game site? I don’t do any advertising! Is someone doing free ads for moi? Where?

  24. Brilliant!! SO well-deserved! Cute Overload makes my day, but it’s your hilarious commentary that make it over the top.

  25. O.o wowie that is bigtime!!
