The Daily Show, I Was on THE DAILY SHOW: Thanks Again Dr. Keith Ablow

07.22.11

Last night we sat down to eat dinner a little late. Part way through our meal my phone started dinging and it just wouldn’t stop. I got up and went to turn the ringer off my phone and as I glanced at the screen I saw, “Watching you on Jon Stewart”.

Which is when I started screaming and jumping up and down and the kids were worried that there was another rat in the kitchen.

We continued our dinner in front of the TV and watched this.

I’m going to go ahead and pretend that when Jon Stewart says “nailed it” he was offering me congratulations.

And remember when I said I was tired of talking about this? I was wrong, I just needed a rest. I had a lot of fun talking with Marc Amazon from WLW radio, and we even made a $50 bet that I’m going to win, even though I might have to wait three years to collect. Sheesh.

I’m All Talked Out

This morning started early. I was in a car at 3.20am to head over to Fox News so I could tape live for their show. I crawled back into bed at 5am and slept fitfully until almost 9.

I sent girls to the beach and took my son bowling. I worked in a few conference calls during the day. I’m working with a great brand that’s looking to connect with parenting bloggers so if I haven’t reached out to you yet, you know where to find me.

Tomorrow I’m going to fly. Really, I am. I’ll have some video for you tomorrow I hope.

I’m tired of talking about the Breastfeeding doll. It’s less creepy to me than a doll with a fake plastic nipple. Breastfeeding is normal. The halter is weird, but kids are weird. I remember the Barbie dream house coming with a chicken that laid eggs. The egg was a tic tac. I really wanted the dream house so I could eat the chicken’s tic tac egg. I also loved my brother’s Six Million Dollar Man doll. Whenever I look at the Intel logo I think of the chips in this stomach.

The wacky phone calls have begun. Hint to the nerds: when you call here pretending to be a reporter they typically start with this, “Hello this is [first name] [last name] from the [name of outlet] I was calling to [fact check/get a quote from you]. Is this a good time.” The phone calls don’t typically begin with, “I’m calling for Jessica, I’m with a small town newspaper.” And then you make up the name of a newspaper that doesn’t exist, ask me if Fox News is scripted and then you hang up. See, I’m helpful, I give tips.

I’m excited that I’ve joined the Moms Clean Airforce. I’d love to ask you to look at what you put into the environment and what you expect to take from it. There are many shades of green, and I’d like to move from lighter to a darker shade of green. Mindfulness is where it begins.

Tomorrow I’ll fly. Tomorrow blogging will be different.
