Now with Video

I don't like photographs of myself.  That's why I always volunteer to take the pictures.  So I sure don't want to star in any videos.  And yet, here we are.  The lovely organizers of the Blathering that I'll be attending in fairly short order have posted a list of questions for us to answer on tape, so to speak.  Now, I thought about copping out and just writing out my responses, but then I thought about it and decided I was being a wuss and I should just go for it, you big ninny.  So I got out my camcorder (because I don't have a webcam and I'm not super iPad-savvy like my children who spend hours recording themselves sticking out their tongues, ahem) and filmed up a few minutes.

Notes: I have not watched this video.  It was bad enough making the thing, and if I actually sit through it, there's no way I would ever post it.  Also, this is not my first attempt.  I won't tell you how many times I tried to do this and screwed something up along the way, but the number, she is large.  But I finally got through a take (ha, don't I sound all video professional) that wasn't abominably long and where I didn't stutter too terribly much, and well, here.  

The things I do for the internet.  Seriously, you guys are the best and if you want a little video, I can oblige.  See you very soon, and I hope you don't suddenly have something very important to do in the other room the moment you see me.

 I look much younger and prettier in person.


  1. You look very young and pretty on video, too:) Can't wait to see you in Charleston! I'm a big introvert, too, and often end up overwhelmed by the noise/business of all the people, even when I'm having fun at the Blathering.

  2. Yay, can't wait to see you again!

  3. Okay, your comment about Justin Bieber was just THE BEST. Can't wait to see you again!!
