As promised, I’m here to let you know that my Stories from the Bright Side video is live and if you want to see me wearing, like, an inch-thick layer of makeup while telling a disgusting story about hotdogs, I’m currently the second blogger in this reel, listed amusingly as The Sundry Morning. Or you can watch it here:

Well! I … yeah. I’d sure like to go back in time and re-think that sweater. Also that line at the beginning, “Luckily I have a team of improv actors…” was the only scripted part and I can’t tell you how many times I said it all messed up. “Shuckily, I … fuck. Luckily I have a feam … shit.” Etc.

I sort of wish they’d picked one of the other bits, because there was this whole thing where the improv folks riffed off the fact that I said something about my “intimate relationship with hotdogs” (OMG, SELF) and there was a skit with a guy pretending to be on a date when his smothering ex the hotdog calls, and it was kind of really inappropriately hilarious and maybe the inevitable R-rating is why they went with something else?

Anyway. Happy Family paid me to come out and do the video and it’s part of my contract to publish it for you. They didn’t ask me to talk about their products, but they did send me a little gift box as a thank you, and no kidding, their stuff is really good. If I were still in the business of feeding babies, I’d have been all over their meal pouches and snacks. They also have these pouches for non-baby humans called Happy Squeezes (heh), and let me tell you, they’re downright amazing in a smoothie. I don’t know if that’s an officially recommended eating option, but thumbs up from your pal The Sundry Morning.

My thanks to Happy Family for the fun/terrifying experience. They’re running a contest as part of the campaign with a $20K prize, so check it out and submit your own super-awkward video!

    Ecco dove sono finiti gli afgani della “buca” di Roma , o almeno gran parte di loro. è un labirinto di corridoi illuminati da luci neon. Apparentemente sembrano spazi disabitati, ma tutto d’un tratto si sentono da lontano delle voci. E appaiono all’improvviso volti di uomini, sorrisi di bambini e sguardi femminili nascosti dietro un velo. Che anche senza parlare, dicono molto, raccontano storie. Le loro.

    Admiring the hard work you put into your blog and in depth information you provide. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information. Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    I certainly agree that the network is crucial.  The network -readers as well as fellow bloggers and social media friends – is crucial in getting the word out.  Design, less so.  The design has to look professional and make it feel easy to read, but a really great design usually won’t make a big difference over a barely acceptable design.  So I would focus on content and the network.

    I guess a single quote wouldn’t have been enough to create the desired white curtain of text. Did you also lose the text when looking at the figures? Come on Philippa, where’s your 21st century multitasking skills? Thank you for your insightful comment…
