What the Moral of the Back Story Could Be
November 26, 2007 § 2 Comments
So, it’s obviously been a long time since I’ve written to the Colonel, but I feel like this time — this time, at least — I’ve kind of got an excuse (hello, wedding!). And, in the interest of full disclosure, this post will probably be followed by another long drought.
Two things happened in the past five weeks that I felt like I should mention.
First, an ad exec from Young & Rubicam contacted me about this video, which is of my mother, celebrating a gift she received last Christmas. Y&R was interested in using part of it for a holiday ad campaign for Sears. I’m told that if you watch certain channels right now, particularly TBS and Lifetime, you will on occasion see my mother in this Sears ad (I have yet to see it). The best part is, they issued her a SAG card, and she gets residual checks, and she has turned into a total diva. And also, she keeps talking about how the strike is affecting her paychecks, and no matter how many times I explain to her that NO IT ISN’T, she will not listen.
The other thing that happened, which is even cooler, is that Glam asked me to appear in a new Web show they were launching, called The Hot Pink List. I spent a day in NYC on set, taping my comments and waiting for Eve — who was also on the show — to arrive. Eventually, I had to leave to catch the train back to DC, and I crossed paths with Eve in the elevator. Because, you know, that’s how I roll these days … sharing elevators with celebrities (NO I DON’T). Anyway — being on set, taping in front of cameras, in front of a green screen, telling snarky jokes and then hearing directors and producers and sound guys try not to laugh, getting miked up and burping a lot — it was among the top five most fun days of my life. Amazing to experience, and just crazy fun. If you feel like watching, here’s Part I and Part II of the movies list. The TV and Music lists haven’t launched yet, but I love myself so I’ll post them when they do.
So, yeah, it’s been an interesting five weeks. And in less than two weeks, I’ll be a Mrs. Busy times. More sooner or later.
