Some random housekeeping details:

1) For those who enjoy chatting about All Things Potty Training, and boy, who doesn’t?—I’ll be manning the official Pull-Ups Twitter account tomorrow from 12-12:45 PM. They, like, gave me a password and everything, which seems . . . ill-advised, but I did promise to try and keep the prison slang to a minimum.

2) I’m pretty sure my chances of winning this contest/job thing are exactly nil, but if you wanted to throw a vote my way I’d be super appreciative. Or maybe better yet, go ahead and apply for the gig yourself! I don’t know about you, but I could definitely make use of a $30,000 paycheck.

3) I am completely obsessed with this video and so are the kids. I see no reason to be the only one involuntarily humming the song 24/7 and secretly practicing my hand-dancing moves, so please, enjoy:

    My girlfriend pointed me in the direction of this video because she does Irish step-dance, and this couple recorded their (Irish) stepping and then played it in synch with their hand movements for the video. How awesome is that?

    Also: voted!

    If you don’t work “hot lunch” into you poopy twitter feed tomorrow, I’m taking back my vote.

    Voted. I love the video. Thanks for sharing!

  10. Jessamyn on October 21st, 2010 6:42 am

    I am voting for you! And I love the video, even more since after I shared it on FB a few weeks ago, my sister-in-law piped up to tell me that the man & woman in the video are friends of her boyfriend! And I’m FB friends with her boyfriend, so I think that’s maybe only 2 degrees of separation from me, which makes me – weirdly – very, very pleased. Heh.

  11. Amber on October 21st, 2010 7:48 am

    That video just made my whole day. Thanks!

    I love that video so much – I think our household is responsible for easily 100 views ;^)

  16. kalisa on October 21st, 2010 8:47 am

    I wonder how they advertised for this job? Percussionists? Dancers? Hand-boners?

  17. Corey on October 21st, 2010 8:51 am

    I voted…goddamn, you are ripped in that picture, woman!

  18. Erika Peterson on October 21st, 2010 8:55 am

  19. Eric's Mommy on October 21st, 2010 9:35 am

    VERY cool video!

  20. SMook on October 21st, 2010 10:39 am

    Ohhh – I forgot about that song… Yolanda Be Cool. Itunes – here I come!

  21. Christine on October 21st, 2010 1:02 pm

    If you lose the job to the girl who loves sparkles, puppies, cupcakes and overly enthusiastic punctuation in her writing I think you should chuck a kettle bell at her. Or show her the Jon Gosselin pictures.

  22. Anna on October 21st, 2010 1:22 pm

    Do you think their fingers are bruised?

  23. Life of a Doctor's Wife on October 21st, 2010 2:07 pm

    The job sounds awesome!! Good luck – you’ve got my vote.

  24. Lori O on October 21st, 2010 4:28 pm

    I voted! By the way, I want your arms. The photo in the Sam-e badge makes my arms jealous. But I don’t do CrossFit and have eaten like crap for awhile, so I got a ways to go. But my own version of your arms is my goal!

  25. Tracy on October 21st, 2010 7:02 pm

    That job sounds perfect for you…or I guess you are perfect for that job. I voted for you!

  26. .303 Bookworm on October 21st, 2010 10:22 pm

    Yes, yes all very cool but can you make your EYEBROWS dance?

  27. .303 Bookworm on October 21st, 2010 10:25 pm

    Also, voted. or tried to. and agree – your arms are like WOW!

  28. Erika on October 22nd, 2010 6:51 am

    I voted for you twice so far! Will vote again every day. I looked at a bunch of the other entries and I think you have a pretty damn good chance of winning. Nobody else has anywhere near the voets you do, at least not that I saw. Go Linda!

  29. Samantha on October 22nd, 2010 3:38 pm

    Dude. How do you become a professional hand dancer? Do you call it “getting a hand job” when you land a gig? I need to know more! I never see “hand jobs” on Monster.

    Voted! You’re awesome.

  30. The Informal Matriarch on October 23rd, 2010 11:18 am
