Win a Blind Date with GC and Gawky Love from Gawker

We’re having a very hard time coming up with possible matches for this intriguing (double-)blind item from Gawker:

Just Asking (A Blindish Item of Our Very Own)

WHAT BLOG, full of catty commentary on her publishing-world coworkers, recently got the junior employee who was writing it fired from a major house?

Seriously, what blog? We know it happened, but we don’t know the where to get our hands on the hot copy. First to give us the right URL is promised a weekend full of Gawky love.

Help us win Gawky love. We didn’t get enough of it as a teenager. (No, seriously: GC went to prom stag.) Send your guesses to galleycat at mediabistro dot com, and we’ll share the spoils (gawkward hand-holding, late night phone calls, oily cheek-to-cheek dancing, blowjobs with braces, whatever).

UPDATE: Blogger revealed. “We would have fired her anyway,” writes Gawker. “She uses emoticons, constantly.”
