Reading my blog at Barnes and Noble in Annapolis!
This Friday, 22 November, at 10am, in between kids’ story time and someone playing the bagpipes, I will be all dressed up like a proper British lady, don’t you know, and reading extracts from my blog, in my best ever I-went-boarding-school-and-yes-I’ve-met-Prince-Charles-and-yes-I-live-near-London-(well, two hours)-plummy-Downtown-Abbeyesque-(upstairs, of course)-British-accent, to an audience of well-to-do ladies wot luncheon and stuff at Barnes and Noble in Annapolis! (Part of their Discovery Friday events.)
Je suis tres excited (that’s Franglais 😉 ). I think it might be filmed, but if not I will ensure pics and at least some video are taken…..
My faithful blog reader, Andy, has chosen extracts for me to read (I will be cutting out the ‘that’s what she said/as the actress said to the bishop’ comments and the profanities, of course!). If you have any favourites that you think should be shared, let me know!
(FYI, Andy has chosen: Hole punch holes; Hot tea/Iced tea; Cider/Hard cider; The Residents Association and the one on Stink Bugs.)
Jingle Bells / Jingle Balls!
America is in uproar! Why? Over this advert/commercial.
Actually, not all America, but some of the uptight folks are. I love it! Hoorah for Jingle Balls!
The newscasters on this show think it’s just a good laugh, and of course it is!
My favourite ‘outraged of somewhere in America’ comment is this:
‘Pretty straightforward here. If you like this video, you have no class. I really don’t see the humor by a group of men banging their nasty hairy testicles together to play a traditional Christmas song. Very poor taste KMART.’
I totally have no class, then….. 😉
The Mobbies results
So, the blogs of Baltimore award show was last night. I could not go 😦
However, it sounded super fun and the results are in!
I am so proud to have come 7th out of so many blogs (38 and 31 in Lifestsyle and Personal Blogs, respectively) that are well-known and read far and wide in the area and beyond, and for a newbie who is pushing her luck with her cheeky comments about the USA, and this area in particular, I am very grateful for all the votes!
