So there you have it, kids. It's all the un-fun stuff from here until February!
Sometimes after work we will go out to our local bar and engage in your standard Happy Hour discussions. Inevitably, after catching up on the WMNOTD (weekly magazine news of the day) talk shifts to Swimsuit: where is senior editor MJ Day now? Who is on the shoot? Where are they going next? When are you sending me somewhere? Any shots have cover potential? And sometimes, sometimes MJ herself is there. That's when you go home with a bunch of intel that could get you paid, if you were willing to lose your salary over it.
Anyone who follows MJ on Twitter and Instagram knows the kindhearted editor loves to keep her followers in the semi-circle of trust with occasional rounds of Guess the Model. But I am not so kindhearted and I just like to remind you that I see your guesses, I know when you're right and when you're wrong because I know who it is but I'm not telling. Ha ha.
To celebrate this landmark issue wrapping, here is a round up of MJ's teasers for a season of shoots (and if you ever wondered whether this is hard work, just look at some of the time stamps*).
