Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Guest Blogger: TGIM

Aaron (AKA: TGIM) here: Just got done getting our picture taken for The Washington Post thing. I must hand it to the photographer; she posed us in uncomfortable positions, shoved curious neighborhood kids out of the way, and even jumped once to get a different angle. Oh, and she laughed at Catherine's "funny" comments and didn't mock her t-shirt one bit. You know the one. By the way, thanks mrtl. Cat hasn't changed clothes in two weeks. How will I ever get her out of it? Reminds me of her U2 Zoo Station tour shirt that I finally had to burn. Constantine is close to going down in flames...

Hey! Have too changed clothes! Nyah! Looky! This one came a SUPER close second to my Greek Idol Secret Luvah of Hawtness t-shirt. See?! Cats, y'all! (because it relates to the piece I wrote...)

Almost, Andrew Lloyd Webber. Almost.

I totally wore it, mrtl. Just for YOU, babe. I mean, it's not like I'll ever have my picture in the Post again! I thought it would be fun to really make an impact, you know? Make it memorable.

Truthfully, the way cool photographer was pretty much just shooting our faces. Sorry, Connie. I tried. (Seriously. Call me.)

(Sorry. GRAINY pic. Not diggin' the Blogger photo upload quality...)

Hi TGIM.. well, TGCM! Cat, I am sorry if I missed this somewhere, but... what is your job? I thought about asking before but didn't for some reason. But now that I know I can get paid to watch porn, I might be interested..

Hi Aaron! I realize your sarcasm about the shirt comes from your jealousy because YOU want to wear the shirt, for Constantine to rub up on your man breasts.

Cat, I'm sorry she was just going for head shots. Really, that's too bad, because surely Constantine would see the picture of you in his shirt and totally call you.

I'm so excited to see the article!! (What is it about anyway? I had assumed work, but then you mentioned TGYM. Is it the story of your move to the metro area?)

Oh my gosh, Charlotte, you can't just ask people how to get paid to watch porn...

Hee. I think I better plead the 5th on this one, at least publicly. I have NO desire to be Dooced, you know what I'm sayin'?

Email me! (Link under Contact Info)

mrtl, in all honesty, it is a SHORT piece (not kidding, it HAD to be under 100 words) capturing a "slice of life." Truthfully, it's something I posted on my blog back in March. How's that for lucky?

Oh, contest idea: First one to figure out which post I am talking about wins a big, sloppy, virtual smoochie! From... John Stamos! Yah! Or someone impersonating John Stamos!

How can that not be enough incentive?

Frankly, it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out. Everything else is American Idol fluffage.

I'm guessing the post titled: How to Etch a Place in My Heart OR See? It's Not ALL About American Idol!

If I am right I'll let Kelly have my prize cause I think you were expecting her to guess for some reason...

Awww, how sweet is Bente? But more importantly, how is it you have JS connections and haven't used them for smoochie-spreading goodness before now?!!!

Bente, you are so HOT!! HOT HOT HOT!! I told you it would be easy. And, please, woman... John Stamos virtual smoochies are FUN for ALL.

Right Kalki?

Damn. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have given you March...

OOOOHH - I know the section of the paper you're talking about. "Life as haiku" or something like that?

I miss the Post sooooo badly!

Go, mrtl! Go, mrtl! It's your birthday! Go, mrtl!

I mean... yeppers.

You know Cat...if you really want Connie to call you I can arrange that.

I have the email & have IM'ed with the woman who runs his website.

Do I NEED to remind you of the craziness that made me have to contact her? She was really quite cool and she said the guys in the bad thought it was funny...so I no longer fear the FBI showing up at the door. LOL, it was so funny huh?

So yeah...Seriously...you want a ringy?

Yeah, that's what I thought.

*Waving to TGIM*

Woman, don't you MESS with me. My head is spinning. I'm all GIDDY. Can you REALLY?! Oh! You are SO messing with me!!! Shaun, puppetmaster extraordinaire, you CUT IT OUT!

Honestly. If you did that, there would not be enough blove in the blogosphere to express my gratitude...

But I know you're totally kidding. I mean, obviously.

You know, I was just thinking, when you get oober-famous it's going to be a madhouse on this blog. I wonder if you will still answer us personally, or if the title will be like "To My Many Adoring Fans Out There...." (sigh) I enjoy your blog.

Dude, I have her on my Yahoo messenger. She's hella cool.

I could casually IM her and ask her now that Connie is back in mainstream if he ever got to see the 'april fools joke' and get back in good.

I WON!! I WON!! But yeah, since you said March, plus the thing earlier about Cats it was pretty easy.

Kristine, look at you! Making dreams come true!

Wait! Oh, HEY. I know. See if you can score me some tickets and a backstage pass to the DC American Idol concert on July 27 (my BIRTHDAY!) and I will blove you forever.

Aw, shoot. Who'm I kidding? I blove ya already. Because you are emosewa! Which is even better than awesome.
