Tuesday Wrap Up

  • I love bullet points.
  • Therefore, this post will be entirely comprised of them. 
  • I got to go downtown (by myself!) and meet some fabulous bloggers, as we learned about an amazing new literacy campaign for children called WeGiveBooks.
  • I would tell you all about it, but first I have to formulate coherent thoughts. 
  • I'm never coherent after riding the Metro
  • Because I get wicked motion sickness
  • And now I pretty much want to die. 
  • And my hands are all shaky and crap, which is not ideal for writing. 
  • I hate that I said crap, but what's the alternative? STUFF? 
  • Great, now I have to go get my thesaurus. 
  • Junk. Paraphernalia. Goods. Things.
  • Crap is totally the best summation.
  • I totally met Amy Tan today. 
  • Yes, mom, the REAL Amy Tan. 
  • And I totally just said totally four times in a row. 
  • Blame the Metro.
  • I'm going to go throw up now. 
  • Yay.


  1. YOU MET AMY TAN?!?!?!

    I hope you had a camera with you. That is a meeting that needs to be memorialized in your journal/memory book.

    Sorry you're sick. Hopefully, you'll be feeling better soon.

  2. WOW. I hate riding the metro too, and avoid SLC at all costs.

    How awesome meeting Amy Tan! I can't wait for your coherent thoughts to formulate so I can read them! So get feeling better soon!

  3. Your thesaurus missed Whatnot. It's my go-to word.

  4. You make me laugh.

    Sorry you have to go ralph.

    You are all, "Boppity Doooo...rode the metro...can't think of a better word for crap...met Amy Tan..."

    We, your readers are all, "AMY TAN?!"

    You are awesome.

  5. Whatnot... Good one.

    The words I use the absolute most are "Plus" "extra-for" (yes, I use it as one word) and "meanwhile"

    I'm extrafor fun to talk to.

  6. •yay for meeting Amy Tan
    •boo for being sick
    •acceptable use of the word crap
    •yay for bullet points

  7. We had quite the Metro adventure coming in for the WeGiveBooks event yesterday too - so much so that we almost missed the whole event! It was nice meeting a few of the DC area mom bloggers - unfortunately I don't think we met. I'm Char, nice to meet you.

  8. I am sending you a picture of us with Amy Tan so you can prove it to the world.

    And I felt the same way after getting home yesterday. I tried, but all I could post was a picture and two sentences. I thought a day away was supposed to be relaxing?

  9. Well hello Char, nice to meet you too.

    And yes, Lolli, please send me the picture. Especially if I have the whole drunk eye thing going on. It's such an attractive look, no?
