I started this blog a month and five days ago and already some pretty terrific things have happened like getting Freshly Pressed for my “My Resume if I Weren’t a Mother” post two weeks into writing all this nonsense, meeting Le Clown who will be featuring me on his blog this week (Go say “hi” to him and tell him how clown-like he is. He likes that.), and I’ll be featured on Project: Underblog November 7th where I’ll probably turn off their audience and incite some sort of riot. Or they’ll love me. You can never be too sure whenever I’m involved. But something I’m super duper excited about is my new book club, Tipsy Lit on Goodreads. It’s a virtual book club for crazy women who like to read and get trashed in the privacy of their own homes. Of course you don’t have to get wasted (I hear decaf tea is pretty awesome. No it isn’t but whatevs…), but if you feel the need to relive your college days while chatting to a group of Internet strangers as your husband asks you for the seventh time to please stop sitting on his favorite hat, then we’re the book club for you. We’ll be meeting up on Goodreads every first Friday of the month at 8:00 p.m. EST (I had to look up what EST means. Stupid letters.), where we’ll discuss how awesome Tanqueray is. I mean talking about refined literature. If you’re allergic to teenage vampires, shades of the color gray and shopping in all its forms, we’re most certainly empathetic to your needs considering we read REAL books. And I should know what real books are since I self published one once. Snort.
So finally, a big “thank you” to Dawn from wordswithnannaprawn who inspired me to go ahead and pull the trigger on an idea that has been percolating for a little while and of course to ravenai, fatliesandfairytales, morasmum (no link), sparksmcgee, Maggie O’C, and southernfriedinvegas and anyone else I’m forgetting (please put your link in a comment if I forgot to mention your name – my apologies!). And of course to all of the awesome folks who requested to be my penis buddy on that post. I penis you guys so hard! Ew.
So there you go. Some wonderful inspirational things happening in my life because there are people that exist on the Internet who don’t suck. And if you were one of the ones following my “Only the Lonely” post, a little update: I hung out with the moms in my neighborhood the other day (debilitating social anxiety be damned!) and it turns out they were extremely welcoming and funny and laughed at all my jokes so we’re all best friends now whether they know it or not. Just ordered their BFF Penis Buddies Forever necklaces for Christmas! Exciting!
So some good things going on in Erickaville. So let me know: What great things have been happening to you lately? And if it’s some snazzy online stuff, link it!
