Blatant self-promotion Promote yourself blatantly.
Done! :D

Also, I now promote myself to the rank of "Chief Brain Surgeon & Fry Cook."

I'll be in the print edition of the Washington CityPaper tomorrow. A reporter and photographer came along on my last wedding, so I assume I'll be pictured, too. Hell, I might even be on the cover.

No thanks, I might develop a case of the stalkers.

Ooh! But I did calmly reprimand a lady in the grocery for personal space violation last night. She even responded politely. Till I walked away, that is. I let it go.

Yay me!

My college alumni magazine is doing a story on me. The photo shoot is the week after my vacation!

I haz a website that haz not eated itself yet.

I also successfully let a cab driver know I was slightly annoyed when he stopped me from eating my dinner in his cab on the way home at 10 pm. I know it's a stupid thing be annoyed about, but I was very cranky that night and rather than keep that crankiness inside and eat away at my belly, I let him know that while I understood his reasons why, I was still annoyed.

We ended up having a nice conversation.

My boss just came by and told me they do the budget in July, and would I like to stay on full-time because if so we need to start working on putting me in the budget for next year.

So that's sort of a promotion, right?

Here is my choir. We are so good that we only rehearse for two weeks a year and sound awesome. You should make a special trip to the Midwest just to hear us at our one concert.

(Alternatively, we will either be performing at the American Choral Directors' Association convention or making a cd entitled Isthmus Christhmus, so... yeah.)

The blog, she continues to exist. The pictures, they continue to go up. And that's about the best I can do right now although, hey, I did shower and get sort of dressed today. Yay me!

Gc: pretty great.

(I keep a tumblr here)

(I also write an on-going weblit serial here)

(in Shenzhen, there was a pretty good pizza place across from my apartment called Pizza Pie. Their slogan? "We're great,")

Not yet, but as soon as I wrestle WordPress 3.0's multi-blog feature and domain mapping into submission and finish rewriting their new default theme into something I like looking at, I'll be blatantly self-promoting at LEAST 5 blogs on various topics (and then go on to a couple foolhardy projects of non-bloggish sites using modified WP and mysql at their core). I intend to emerge from this effort as either a WordPress Ninja or a WordPress Victim (at this point in the process, Ninja is just barely pulling ahead). Okay, you can get a sneak peek here (where I merge the content from all my little bloggys).

Oh , look--it's online now. Lots of boring stuff, then a few paragraphs about me at the end.

his most involved affair yet, a 200-person fete on the roof of the Newseum

Wow, that sounds like quite a shindig!

Seriously, if anyone reads metachat or metafilter enough to know who and where I am, and I kind of might know you, my email is in my profile, if you are coming through for whatever strange reason, please let me know and I'll tell you if I'm performing anywhere then and/or offer to meet up. But it's just a little to weird to be like "I'll be at X place on Y night and that'll be me!"

I would tell you, eideteker, of course. Along with many other people.

What's really funny is that two of my five or six positive metafilter meet-up peeps -including the most constant and "social" one (because we are all geeks, and not very social and active) are musicians, so we try to keep each other informed, but never seem to make it out to each other's performances. It was just kind of awesome to hear other geeky people say "I do X, and I also play the X with X" - because we mostly all had wonkery jobs and performing arts interests.

I am pretty awesome. Also, I am now single.

My boss is pleased with the recent dramatic increase in my friendliness to customers. I feel good about it too.

So, yay me.

Yay everyone, actually. Awesome collection of people. (Even me.)

I can sew some pretty awesome skirts out of reused materials. The last one I made was a full-length comfortable denim skirt with a hitch on the right side so that it was also a bicycling-worthy skirt.

I do all my sewing by hand. If you want me to make you a denim skirt like the one mentioned above, offer up some sort of trade or cash. One skirt is composed of approximately 2.5 pairs of jeans.

Along with a dozen or so other people, I help run our local bike collective. I've been complimented on my ability to organize.

Can I shamelessly self-promote all my co-volunteers and the community at large? Not a single person who runs the place earns a dime off the time they spend there, but rather work for the love of it; and the folks of Davis have been enthusiastic in their support and interest.

P.S. You are all awesome.

P.P.S. Technically the "post script" convention should be becoming obsolete, since words on a computer are not indelible.

I'd like to add after some thought today: Japanese middle-schoolers seem to like me.

It wasn't 200 people--she got that wrong. More like 40. What I didn't tell her was that it was Spaceballs-themed.

I suck.

However, I'm wicked smart (if erratic and unpredictable) and apparently good-looking. I also have PLENTY OF FREE TIME in case anyone in Chicago's looking for an assistant/media consultant/spiv.

I have two semi-stillborn blogs that I need to get more work in on. One's a vehicle for me to comment critically (and anonymously) on creative fields that I'm directly involved in; the other's a release valve for less-favored MeFi content in the spirit of PoliticsFilter and SportsFilter.

MGL, haven't visited yr blogs in ages. It's Fabulous! You're funny and engaging, and I'm stealing funny lines already (the Mondawmin Mall DMV in Baltimore makes Kafka's castle look like DisneyWorld, to start with).

You are all very talented and I envy you all. I, however, have a whole lot of prestige in the online game that is my current obsession. And troops, I have a lot of troops and am an officer in my alliance. But my heroes just get drunk and flirt with every one else.
