It’s a wonder I have any friends at all


I’ve got some big stuff going on – some changes afoot, some news to report.  All in good time, little ducklings.

So instead, today, I bring you A Fake Interview With Myself.

Fake… and yet… so real…

Hi Annie.

Oh hey, you!

So nice to see you – you’re looking pretty awesome these days.

Stop it!


I mean, you don’t have to.

Let’s move on.  How many miles did you run on the treadmill last night?

Just over 4.  I was watching “The Biggest Loser.”  That show is a triumph of the human spirit.  And could you believe Rebecca?  What a hottie!

Totally.  Is your EP still for sale?

Yes it is.

Are you silently judging your friends who haven’t asked for a copy yet?

You bet your bottom dollar.

What if the aforementioned friends live in Seattle and never see you?

Well, they should know that I’m going to be in town over New Years!  And I can’t wait to snuggle with them – and then force my music on them.

Wow – New Years is coming up quick.  Can you believe the holidays are upon us?

Yahtzee.  NO.  I’ll be driving to Kansas City a week from today to be with my family.

Remember what happened last year on Thanksgiving?

How could I forget!  Trick or turkey, y’all.

After watching that video again, is there anything you would like to share with the class?



There’s nothing.

Yes there is.


I now sometimes drink boxed wine.

My work here is done.

    bahaha! I watched the whole video again–and it made me laugh, again! And the real question is…is that a Susan Parsons Sour Cream Apple Pie next to the box of wine?
    Oh, and I really couldn’t figure out WHY in the world you were going home so soon for the holidays–I mean, really, Christmas is over a month away. And then I remembered that you guys haven’t had Thanksgiving yet!

    Changes afoot? News to report?? Can’t wait…

    You know how I feel about boxed wine. The feelings involved are warm and fuzzy. Be proud, there’s some good stuff out there. I indulged in the Bota Box myself, last night.

    OK – I had not seen the T-day video – my life is now complete I think. Made me laugh – that is a good thing on a day when my students are driving me a little nutso.
    Looking forward to news – hmmmmm.

    I sit here bursting forth with pride thinking about you popping open a box. SO much validation.

    Boxed wine kicks ass. And if you need a bit of “class” just turn that spout and let some of that mood altering goodness pour into a glass decanter! Ah, the beauty of it… xoxo

    I’m sorry, Boxed Wine is an abomination.

    Unless you are a member of the Red-Neck Aristochracy. Then it’s a badge becoming of your elevated social status.

    You know, Annie, whatever all the other comments are about, I’m just excited to have my daughter back in the Rocky Mountains, drinking boxed wine with her father. sigh. Life is good.

    I am intrigued by this black box.
