What is "pink asparagus" a euphamism for?

My friend Catherine at Pink Asparagus attended BlogHer 2008 and came back with the great idea of interviewing people who she knows through blogging. This is brilliant, because while we form genuine attachments to people through their posts, we don't actually know them beyond what they have chosen to share.

I'm thrilled to be her first subject. I have to admit, though, that when I re-read what I wrote, my first thought was, "Dang, Kelly, learn how to punctuate correctly." Fun game, go read the interview and see if you can spot my errors! Also, of course, peruse Cat's site. She's adorable and error-free.

UPDATE (10:18 p.m.): Oh god, and the grammar errors! *cringe* This is why I don't write blog posts at work. Too many distractions. Ah well, a little imperfection is sometimes what takes something from good to great, right? Right?

i googled pink asparagus & it's apparently white asparagus, only more bitter. fwiw... unless you were being sly, & then yes, i agree. i too am in on the joke.

also, nice interview! cool questions, cool answers...

I loved the interview and thought it was fun to read more about you. I didn't notice any of the errors, but I am terrible at proofing. So I say...good job!

hi kelly...it's funny to me that you always claim that you are a dork (like you did in the pink asparagus interview). but everyone who knows you knows you're not a dork. And by my definition, dorks who call themsevles dorks (and thus are self-described dorks or SDDs) are cool. SDDs rock. (not to be confused with STDs which don't rock)

thanks for your time, and there were errors? I might need to get an editor - I didn't see them either.

And your friends? They're funny ... pink asparagus is more bitter than white, what does that say about me when I'm sunburnt? Also SDD nearly made me spit on my keyboard.

Great interview!! I agree with Daniel on the "dork" issue. You are just plain awesome. I loved what you said about telling a story and your friends will be like "Oh, yeah, I read that!" - lol, I hate that! btw, LOVE the cartoon.

Ok, my second comment. But someone just "tagged" me and now I am tagging you. Would love to see your 7 things. I mean, as long as you're being interviewed...! (more info on my blog.)
