Butts Down


I haven't smoked a cigarette in 365 days. In said time I have completed a book, arced my way through the adoption process, traveled to Ethiopia, and become a mother.

I rule!

Also, lest I sound righteous, I admit to eating a rogue pot brownie (my first!) in 2009 and going on a wild space odyssey in a very queer West Hollywood hotel room with my best friend. (Rest assured judgers, skinny went down before Ava came home to our nest.) We tried to watch the wretchedly awful movie Bride Wars on pay-per-view but I had to keep pausing it and asking my friend to explain the story to me. ie., "hold up, hold up, hold up, why does Kate Hudson have those strange bangs?" Halfway through the night my friend turned to me and wondered if we ought to go to the emergency room. Instead we adjourned to the mini-bar. We ate everything in there, with a couple wrappers to boot. It was a truly stupid, utterly ridiculous, hopelessly ill-advised evening. Ain't never laughed so hard in my life.

Two words for that kind of evening: Effing awesome.

Congrats on kicking the butt.

Time to kick some assphalt.

I love it! Oh, and I am so glad you came through okay from that awful car accident. That's my worst fear... It's not my driving I worry about, it's the other people on the road. Glad you're safe!

I recently found your blog and I love it. :) Congrats on quitting! And... do you know of other families in AUS who have adopted from Ethiopia and would you be interested in playing with us if I were able to get of group of families together that have? My husband and I are traveling to Ethiopia in February to pick up our daughter.

I'm a bad blogger and I hardly ever blog and I'm bad at reading blogs but OH lord am I happy that I read this. Congratulations and hilarious. Seriously. A while back I saw a pic on your blog of your baby shower and I thought, I'd bet we'd be friends. Now, I'm nearly sure of it.
You're lovely.
