Quickie 4

Quickie

I have my video interview for Alpha Mom today at 9:50am (California Time). I feel really weird about it because the interview list is damn intimidating. It’s like a “Who’s Who” of bloggers and I know several of you like to feed my ego by telling me I belong there – but have y’all read my blog? I’m kinda mundane. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love talking about boob sweat – that’s my life – but I’m not really inspirational, or wicked funny, or even really able to use big words correctly. I feel kinda like the token...

I finished and if the compliments I got from my workshop is any indication? I was FIRE HOT, I tell you! They loved me! They threw bras and panties at me on stage and asked me to autograph their chest. No, no they didn’t. But they did say I did a good job and that’s good enough for me. Hugging amalah was like finally hugging a sister I hadn’t seen in years. Now, if only I could find her again since she’s disappeared amongst the masses. Yvonne is totally as hot in person as she is online. Marilyn and Brit...

Thank god for LilZ – who I owe big time for helping me drag all my shit across the country

So far, so good. Kinda. Well – I’ve already met three bloggers face-to-face. First? I was talking to two women at the Atlanta airport yesterday as we waited for our VERY DELAYED flight. As we were talking, we eventually figured out we were all going to Blogher and it got very surreal and OHMIGOD THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING there for a minute. Those two women? The lovely Mom, Ma’am, Me and Table for Five. Then, after we finally made it to the hotel (flying with an infant? STUPID AS HELL. I will not dwell on how stressful it was or...

A few questions… 16

A few questions…

How does my infant demon child know that the last 24 hours were/are critical in terms of Mommy Needs To Do Important Things time? Because she slept HORRIBLY last night and has wanted to be held (by ME) every time she wakes up. It’s hard to pack and hold a sleeping baby at the same time. Is it possible to paint one’s toenails without getting polish on the skin? If you can do this? You are dead to me. I realized this morning I have nine million pens, four thousand highliters, and NO folders. So my Blogher prep stuff is...

Preparation/Procrastination/Panic

I’m being interviewed (on camera!) at BlogHer by Leah Peah for Alpha Mom and I’m so proud of myself for not freaking out about this before. I’m trying to be all cool and “no big deal…it’s only 15 minutes…” about it on the outside, but on the inside? I’m all “ohmigod ohmigod ohmigod” about it. And I don’t really fake coolness well. Leah sent an email out to all of us being interviewed and it mentioned appropriate colors/clothing that will look good on camera. Pointers: Solids not Patterns. No Black, White, or Red. Jewel tones are good. Here’s the problem:...
