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!

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.

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

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.

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!

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!

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.
