For those of you lucky enough to be in Austin right now: Jenn Grant is playing my old stomping ground, The Velveeta Room, tonight. Go drink a Shiner and shed a few tears for me.

Jenn Grant: “Where Are You Now”


Woke up to find out I’m a finalist for a Bloggie, for the Lifetime Achievement award. Thanks to those of you who nominated me. It is an honor to be nominated, because with such esteemed company there’s no way in hell I’m winning this thing. But it’s always nice to be flattered first thing in the morning. Continue reading


the show must go on

I was supposed to do my One Person Show “What A Girl Wants” for MOMfest this year. But there have been some technical difficulties (namely, the lack of a rear projector, a necessity for the show) so in a last-minute panic, a new show was born. And as most last-minute panic ideas usually are, this show looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Basically, I’m going to do a Farewell to Austin performance by bringing on my friends and doing what we do best– make you laugh. Austinites, reserve your tickets through Momfest now. It’s going to be fun. It’s next Monday and Tuesday at the Vortex and the Off Center.

love me, love me not | with exclusive bonus footage.

Well, I spent the first part of my morning deleting mail from people telling me that they love me when they don’t. They don’t love me at all. And I thought I was all cool and smart, not opening any of the attachments, but somehow it still opened up my Outlook address book and sent duplicates to other people. So, if you got love from me, know that I don’t love you that way. I love you, but not in that screwing-up-your-life way. Well, kinda. Maybe. You’ll have to find out.

Look at You!

people are coming, for christ’s sake.

First: a joke for the Pittsburgh people. Have you seen the new Pennsylvania quarters? Yeah, you can tell by the Giant Iggle on the back.

Bah-dum-bum. Feel free to pass that one around, but give me credit.

last minute freak-outs and a whole new world.

So I’m on a plane very, very soon.

Have I mentioned my fear of flying? No? Well, that’s because we’re not going to talk about it. We’re just not, so shutup. I have no fear. NO FEAR, YOU HEAR ME?

Too Much Time Together

movies and elbows

I can’t believe how much I’ve missed being sick for a full week. I’m so behind at work. I’m so behind on the web. Are you guys all still there? Are you all still the same? Oh, man. It’s amazing, because even though I wasn’t here, things were still churning along.

i’ll get a rise out of you

Note to Nigel and Stacey:  I’m sorry I had to take off so quickly.  Your assumptions about a “showbiz” party were correct– the problem being that I had just found out that all of the people were already on their way to my house, so I had to get home to unlock the door and throw away the pizza boxes.  I would have loved to have stayed to talk, as Stacey and I had a great conversation last time, but it’s difficult when the next show has already started.  Sorry you found us smug.  We just want to be loved, is that so wrong?

down, grrl!

why you shouldn’t pat me on the head

I was walking around SXSW Interactive feeling pretty good about myself and my site, meeting great people and finding some wonderful sites out there– 



And then I go down to the trade show area and I decide to play around on a Mac, since I’ve never had the opportunity to see my page through one, since I work for a competitor…

and my page looks absolutely terrible!
