On the upside: I love my new job. Like, love LOVE it. In fact, I do a lot of what I used to do for fun at home (cruise around the internet looking at cool sites, reading about cool things, taking photos, playing in photoshop, writing, posting on facebook and twitter, etc.), but now I get paid to do it and have the bonus of doing it around lots of interesting people.
Here's a little update of life since I last wrote:
I caught a Crown Royal thong at my very first Mardi Gras parade.
Did anyone else know that this was a thing?
I found out that their is a lucrative niche market for bearded-dragon necklaces.
I fell in love with the Century Oaks on the University of Louisiana's campus.
I allowed my kids to run around the alligators that were out sunning themselves by the lake
at the park. I guess this is a thing in Louisiana?
I continued my love affair with the Spanish moss of Louisiana.
And, last, but certainly not least...
Not just going, friends, I will be HOSTING this little bit of karaoke heaven at BlogHer '13 in Chicago (which really is "my kind of town"). I won't try and sell you on it—either you love karaoke or hate it. I get it.
Nonetheless, I will tell you that the people I went to karaoke with at the last BlogHer in NYC and the Dad 2.0 Summit in Houston bonded in a way that simply can't be matched by normal, run-of-the-mill conference shenanigans. Something magical happens when friends bond over personal interpretations of beloved songs.
I said MAGICAL, dammit.
