For the past few months, Melissa (Pinky) has been responsible for some of the more creative photos submitted to theCHIVE, not just her own creative sock-meets-tush combos but some of the lol's you get as well. Melissa's appearance as the COTW is a long time coming and very well deserved. Take it away, Pinky:

Hi Chivers! I’m Melissa, your R2 Girl, but I post on the Chive as R2_Pinky (formerly just Pinky). I’m from God’s Waiting Room, otherwise known as Florida. I try to make up for being temporarily stuck here by going to every Star Wars Weekends and Megacon in Orlando each year. I even had the opportunity to go to the opening event of Star Tours at MGM in May. I have a Master’s degree in Accounting (you can't get much nerdier than that!). I love travelling, roller coasters, British comedies, and music. Oh, and I can probably kick your ass at DDR. ;-)

I sometimes think of myself as one of the guys, which I’m sure they don’t mind me hanging around. I love to be outside, the way to my heart is through food, and I can hold my own in quoting tv shows. But I’m a girly girl too, and love my collection of thigh high socks (I think you all might be catching on to that!) I have also been a dancer since I was about four, so we can give credit to the years of ballet for my booty.

This really is the best and nicest community to be a part of, and I am humbled to be Chivette… so thanks, and Chive on!
