I was hoping I would be at the Tattered Cover in Denver tonight, meeting The Bloggess and possibly even Beyonce, the giant metal chicken.Instead, I got to go sit in a cramped auditorium with a ridiculous amount of other parents with cameras in order to not actually see my kid sing "Yankee Doodle" because the kid in front was in the way.Ah, parenting....more
Twitter is the great equalizer. Not only can celebrities and the common folk mingle in the Twitterverse, but even tumours have an equal opportunity of becoming Twitter famous. Willfully Disobedient has a funny tale of the time when she broke into a conversation on Twitter and the fibroid she brought up ended up getting a boatload of attention thanks to a tweet by The Bloggess.
Jenny Lawson (The Bloggess) has entertained us for years with her eclectic sense of humor and her commitment to the community via The Traveling Red Dress Project. Her accidental philanthropy shows her heart is bigger than her metal chicken. I was so excited to hear Jenny's memoir, Let's Pretend This Never Happened, is out in paperback (with a bonus chapter) this month.

A few days ago I put up a post offering $30 gift cards to the first twenty people who didn’t know how they were going to give their kids Christmas gifts this year. They went frighteningly quickly. When I got to the twentieth person, I saw that there were still a few more people who needed help and my heart sunk. Then a few comments in, one person said, “I’ll take care of the 21st person”. Then another person offered a card for the 22nd. Then another. Then it avalanched.
