Lights, Camera, ACTION!

Y'all, I got super awe-fabu-wonder-credible news today! No, I didn't win an all-expense-paid 30-day vacation to the Caribbean on a pamper-the-hell-outta-me cruise that includes a scalpel-free full-body rejuvenation, complete with 50-year guarantee and an endless supply of Swedish massages with Sven the manscaped Viking, warm peanut butter crackies, and exotic, um, tingly sensation aromatherapy pleasuring oils. Oooooo, good guess though!

My peeps, I'm going to be one of 15 featured cast members on the Listen to Your Mother Show (Austin) on April 30, 2011. Waaaa-hoooo! LTYM is the brainchild of the lovely and amazing Ann Imig of Ann's Rants; and after last year's premier in Madison, Wisconsin, this year new shows are in Austin, L.A., Spokane, and Valparaiso.

You all know how timid and reserved I am, but I think I'll probably maybe perhaps be okay with the Hollywood lights shining down on me. [sigh] People may just have to escort me onto the stage. But I'm totally not letting anyone escort me off! Ahem, I mean, it should be fun.

Hope y'all can make it! I solemnly promise I won't be long-winded or gross or cussing like usual, and I solemnly promise to embarrass someone near and dear to me.

We'll be at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin. More later on tickets and such. Austin is great for a live show, but if you can't make it, they're taping it. Woot-woot! (I mean, gosh, I'm just doing my part) So you'll be able to see it online after the event.

Pretty cool, huh? Not as titillating as your excellent guess of an all-expense-paid 30-day vacation to the Caribbean on a pamper-the-hell-outta-me cruise that includes a scalpel-free full-body rejuvenation, complete with 50-year guarantee and an endless supply of Swedish massages with Sven the manscaped Viking, warm peanut butter crackies, and exotic tingly sensation aromatherapy pleasuring oils (you were totally so close!). But I'm nonetheless honored and thrilled to be part of such a cool new show and a very talented group of writers.

My humble thanks, LTYM!

Congrats, lady! That's stellar news! Be sure to post the link so I can watch it after it's done! Although the "pamper-the-hello-outta-ya" cruise thing sounds fantastic, this has got to be a close second, yes?

Captain Dumbass said...

That is pretty cool, congrats.

Midlife Jobhunter said...

I'm so impressed - and happy for you. Never know what life will bring us. And I think that 30 day Caribbean thing is probably overrated.

Heidi-"Heidi in Real Life" said...

Much deserved! Congratulations! Wish we lived nearby. Post a clip when it happens!

Lana D said...

Mmmmm totally love warm peanut butter crackies. Have you ever tried them with a Hershey's kiss or marshmallows on them? Yum-O!

Murr Brewster said...

Sounds like, unlike me, you don't go all stupid and quivery when a camera turns your way. Hit a homer.

dana said...

WOW. I haven't been able to find your blog for a year, and I just now discovered GOOGLE READER on my computer. Sheesh. I'm glad YOU won and not me. Given my stupidity, I'd show up a day late and a dollar short.
