Please Don't Throw Tomatoes.

I did it. I made a vlog. I look and sound as uncomfortable as I was. Which was VERY. Instead of wrapping presents and addressing Christmas cards (which I ended up doing while I was making the video), I spent the majority of my day obsessing over recording myself talk to the internet about nothing. Priorities, people. Also, we had roughly 2 weeks notice, so naturally I did this the day before they were scheduled to go live. I work best under pressure even though the stress makes me yell at the innocent.

You wouldn't believe how long it took me to do a video where I didn't get totally tongue tied or say "ummm" every other word. Just kidding - I absolutely say "ummm" every other word in this one, too. Whatever. I'm not doing it again. Deal with it.

I did this vlog as part of a holiday project with Bluntmoms. It's an online writer's group that I'm a part of and it's pretty sweet. Check it out. But wait until after you watch my vlog. You're not going to want to stray away from this page just yet and risk missing all of that awesomeness.

AFTER you watch my vlog, click on all the linky links down at the bottom. We did this kind of as a game of telephone - each answering a question from the previous blogger, then sending a question on to the next one in line. It's a great way to find some new people to follow, and to get out of doing any real work. So I'm gonna watch all of them. Obviously.

Aaaaand now the moment you've all been waiting for....

So, there's that.  And I'm going to be expected to go out in public again soon. Probably today, as a matter of fact. Shit.

As promised, here's the links to all the bloggers that participated in this little game. Go pay them a visit. And thanks for sticking it out through the video. I dig your tenacity.
