Hey, I meant to tell all three of you who might possibly care that I’m no longer writing at Lemondrop — no bad blood or anything, it just wasn’t turning out to be a good use of my time so I bid them adieu. I am, however, continuing to write at Gather.com for BOCA, and I have two things to share about those guys.

Thing the First: BOCA is running a Balanced Living Challenge where you can win $5,000 just by posting a short entry about one thing you’d like to change in order to live a more well-balanced life. The idea is that this five grand could help you make that change, either by paying for a babysitter or cooking lessons or reducing credit card debt or whatever it is, but the important part here is FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS. You can read about the contest details and how to enter here.

Thing the Second: In February BOCA will be sponsoring some blogger get-togethers, one of which I’ll be attending. The tentative date/locations are:

Chicago – Tuesday, Feb. 10th, 6-9 pm
Washington DC – Thursday, Feb 12th. 5-8 pm
Los Angeles – Tuesday, Feb 17th, 6-9 pm

If you live in one of those areas and you think you’d be up for hanging out and getting some free spa pampering (yes! Think manicures/pedicures, massages, that sort of thing), drop by the comments here and let me know which city/day might work for you.

(Also, how much do I love this client, with their cruel requirements that I attend a spa night on their behalf? Oh no I couldn’t possibly leave my children WHEREDOISIGNUP.)

Tomorrow we’re heading down to Eugene for JB’s brother’s wedding, and yes, we totally scored a babysitter, not only for the wedding itself on Saturday but even for the rehearsal dinner tomorrow night, can I GET a hallelujah. I’m relieved as hell, for all the reasons you’d expect, but also for the fact that both children have goopy eyes and runny noses and juicy coughs and are generally sort of unfit for public exposure. Even more so than usual, I mean.

Since JB will be best man, I imagine his speech will be quite colorful, although I’m guessing he’ll avoid sharing MY favorite story about his brother, which involves the two of them getting stupid-drunk many, many years ago out at their family cabin and his brother (who played football at the time) suddenly staggering outside, dropping his pants, and clumsily assuming a 3-point-stance before announcing he had to SHIT, he had to PUKE, and he had to PISS, and he was going to do “WHICHEVER HAPPENSH FIRSHT.”
