Update at 5 Pm Friday! Just as the whistle is blowing….
Chaos Chronicles Podcast 231 is up! I announce the winners of our Marble Racers Give-away! Plus, Is Lian a go-to girl in an emergency? Your letters on Bad Teachers and Bad Men. And a chance to vote for your favorite ( or least favorite) Celebrity Author Moms!
And, if you haven’t filled out the survey for Prof. Alan on podcast listening habits, this is your last chance! We can do it, Chaos Crew. This takes about ten minutes and will provide regular listener and important academic Prof. Alan with vital research! Plus, I want to win the informal race going on who sends the most people to take the survey.
Now back to the regularly scheduled To Do List…
I don’t know where the week went. It’s Friday and I haven’t quite gotten to do the show yet! You know how it is: you have a finely constructed timeline with little or no wiggle room to get you from 6 in the morning until 9 at night. And all it takes is one overly -long meeting ( Happened.) , one unexpected phone call ( Yes.) and one early house guest (Check.) and your whole schedule falls apart.
So me today is trying to regroup.
So I will record the show and pull the winner of the Marble Racers later today ( Entries are closed… but, you can still friend me on Facebook) .
In the meantime, here’s my To Do List the next few days…
Countdown to the Gracies continues Liz and I will be handing out an award this year at the Gracie Allen Awards in ten days. They are in Los Angeles so that means no traveling but extra glam on the actual celebrities who will be our fellow presenters. This is where a normal person like me has to adjust expectations and work with what I got. I bought the dress last week, managing to find a long gown almost identical to the short gown Liz wore two years ago. ( I did text her before buying to make sure she did not have plans to recycle the dress.)
This morning, I am doing as Sheila advised, getting a haircut and fresh highlights.
Tomorrow, my rigorous new skin care regime continues with my first glycolic peel. ( More on the podcast about my new skin care regime, courtesy of naturalskinshop.net!) For the next ten days, lots of water and lean protein! Working with what I got, people.
Vote Not on anything life-changing, but the editors at Babble.com have put together some fun lists about Celebrity Author Moms. ( Who knew there were so many? 50 and counting in the Celebrity Author Mom category!) All my time reading magazines at the orthodontist has been well spent. I am prepared to weigh in on the Most Controversial Author Celebrity Author Mom or the Most Revealing Celebrity Author Mom. Have some free time this weekend? Want to see a list that contains Tatum O’Neil, Martha Stewart and Courtnay Love? Then head to babble.com. Maybe you’ll be as surprised as I was to see that Barbara Walters qualifies as a Celebrity Author Mom!
Off to hairdressers! Then into Closet.
Embracing my Chaos, Lian
