A little radio gig & guest posters here while I'm there...

Merlot Mom asked me to be a guest poster on her blog today, while she vacations in...Japan. The WENCH! She describes her blog: Remember when you could spend hours talking to your girlfriends over glasses of wine? Now we rarely get enough time to go to the bathroom. I want a place where I can hang with my girls, laugh, cry, bitch, and talk about sex. Remember when we used to actually kiss and tell? So pour a glass, sign on, and join me for a virtual girl's night out. Sex not included.

A GIRL'S NIGHT OUT WITHOUT THE MAKEUP: Because sometimes the regular grapes just won't do.

Piqued your interest? Thought so. Merlot Mom is good. Really good. As in...delicious... go see! And she's had some fabulous guest bloggers over the last week!

This past February, a friend of mine encouraged me to enter a writing contest: Moms who Write, for a local LA magazine. The essay was to be a slice of life on motherhood. I submitted a piece called "Where life is a bit bumpy with a Boy & a Girl 10 months Apart." Basically it chronicles what it was like to discover myself pregnant while having a 9 week old infant. Otherwise known as...INSANITY 101 by JCK. Although my piece didn't get picked by the magazine, FISHNET HATERS! the woman who created the contest, Amy Simon: Cheerios in my Underwear, contacted me about a month ago. She has turned Moms who Write into Motherhood Unplugged, which is a radio show and a stage show. She asked IF I would be on the radio show this month. Ummm...YES? So, today I am going to do a radio taping of my piece, which will air later this week. Now I may be sounding all nonchalant and such, but my heart is going A PING A PONG A PING A PONG. I am VERY excited!!! So at 5pm PST today, be thinking the good radio VIBES for me. (I'll have a link up next week, if you're interested in hearing the broadcast.)

Tomorrow we leave for our summer vacation. The kids are packed, the laundry is done. I'm halfway there. In honor of taking a real vacation, I am going to have 6 divine guest posters this week. I've been a huge fan of their's for months and it is with much delight that I can share them here with you. Please welcome them while I'm gone, and leave them some comment love, won't you?

If you are new here, please make yourself at home. My archives are on the right hand sidebar. Take a gander. On this blog I explore parenthood, self-expression and poetry while existing on caffeine, chocolate and the occasional whiskey... fishnets optional.

Congratulations! I am so excited for you (and that's in, like, 40 minutes, so I'm totally on it re: the radio vibes). How cool, very cool.

Oh my! How exciting! Somehow radio doesn't seem like a big jump for you though. You are destined for stardom. I can't wait for the link.

Vacation? VACATION??? Oh yeah...so THAT'S what I forgot to take this summer!

Jen said...

Well CRAP! After reading your guest post, now I'm thinking how rude that I didn't write one about you! I didn't meet you, though, so although I do suspect it, I'm not 100% certain about YOUR hotness.

Jen said...

Oh, and P.S. It's hard to show how HOT you are on a radio show. Seriously, that is awesome!!! Congrats.

Manic Mommy said...

Something tells me you'll be perfect - and have your sexy radio voice on. Make sure you link it because I so want to hear it.

Godspeed on the vacation. We'll be nice to the guest bloggers.
