I’m not sure how to phrase this without sounding like a 12 year old schoolgirl, but I guess I already destroyed that with the header, huh?

Anyway, this Wednesday I’m going to have a guest post on my favorite “blog by someone who I don’t actually know,” This Is What We Do Now. Even though he has 486 blogs on his Blogroll, I got selected to be among the 10 or so guest bloggers. And even in that elite group, I got mentioned in today’s post. Double squee! Go look. Look now. Seriously. Did it move off the top? Try here.

Anyway, as I said, my day is Wednesday and have no fear, I’ll be sure to remind you. Several times.

PS, squee!

Speaking of 12 year old schoolgirls, I’ve been enjoying watching the rebroadcast of MTV’s first day in 1981 (yes, yes, do the math, it’s another “every 5 years anniversary” – do these people like patting themselves on the back or what?). What strikes me most is how many Pat Benatar and REO Speedwagon videos there were in existence then. How…prescient.

But anyway, I found when this video came on, I instantly lay down on my stomach on my bed so I could be three inches from the TV just like I did back in the day. No wonder I’m blind.

OMG! I saw that one too ( I think I emailed you that info as well, didn’t I?) and I squealed in delight. My sons also came in and told me “Wow Mom, you were right. There *were* about 100 Rod Stewart videos back then!” P.S. I. Love. That. Blog. He is my online crush. Well, Evil Discussor too. Those dudes will have to fight over me. But tell them I am sooo worth it. Well, my rack is anyway.

I believe you did e-mail me but I feel sure you didn’t mention your rack in any case.

Hey you, I’m sharing the day of guest-posting with you. Should be fun (although I didn’t get a nice fat mention like you did). Of course I haven’t written crap yet. Suddenly I draw a blank. *sigh*

Hey! It’s Johnny Triangles, my soon to be partner in crime!

I already wrote mine because I have plans this evening but I can assure you that it’s crap. And that it will offend several close friends and family members.

And my mention? It’s a Jewish conspiracy.

Don’t feel so special. I tinhk Larry once agian whored himself out to theentire blogosphere and we were the only idiots who responded. Hem netioned you (and me) in the post since A) you are a Girl and B) I took him to a Yankee game and he owes me. Simple as that.
