My Life Summed Up In A Digital Short

Sometimes life is a cyclone, with events and happenings swirling so quickly balance becomes difficult. I’m currently swirling in my own mini twister, so throw me a bone and allow me a Lazy Blog Day. It’s been a while since I’ve invoked one.

I posted the following video on Facebook, but at the time, I hadn’t yet announced my birth on that platform, and the video got about as much play as a middle-aged woman. So I’m reposting it here. It’s one of my favorite Saturday Night Live Digital Shorts and stars Andy Samberg and Paul Rudd, who could probably make me laugh just by yawning and blinking. The video is called “Stumblin’” and is therefore apropos to my book-marketing approach thus far. Enjoy!

    Wow…I think that’s everyone’s life in 2012! My life goal is to achieve the exact opposite of that! Paul McCartney is a mighty good sport :) I laughed out loud at your middle aged woman comment :)

      I figured as a middle-aged woman myself, I was allowed to make that comment. Especially since I’m still stumblin’ about.

      This was actually last Thursday’s post, but it is probably more fitting for a Monday. Especially one in which the Eastern part of the country is bracing for a storm. Hope it’s not too horrible. Thanks for stopping by!

    Now you’ve got to do a video of you stumbling around too! My brother used to walk around like that. He’d bang into walls just walking down the hallway. Hope you have lots of fun with that tornado. You might feel tossed around for a while but I’m sure you’ll land in a fairy tale place.

      Does this fairy tale place have chocolate? I hope so…

      I joked to an earlier commenter that I wished I had the nerve to create a video clip like this of me stumblin’ along marketing. But I’d be way too chicken.

        Of course! If it’s a true fairy tale place, it would have to be covered in chocolate. I’d probably be too chicken too but it looks like a lot of fun to do!

      I wish I was the type of person who could put together a clip like this of me stumblin’ around while I schlep my book around, but sadly, I’m not. Then again, it would probably only get a couple You Tube hits. On the other hand, the dork factor might guarantee a few more…

    How funny. And I love that Rudd (?)–the guy getting out of the bed–looks ridiculously like one of my son’s friends, right down to the comical personality. Enjoy your Lazy Blog Day. You’ve earned it, I’m sure.

    Stumblin’! I can’t believe I’ve never used that word to describe how my kids walk every day. Well, now I know and I’ll be using it!

    I feel caught in a tornado too on my end, mostly on the personal end but it messes up the professional side too since my brain is too distracted to work well. Nobody wants to be stuck in this situation, but we just have to deal with it, right?

    I’ve had a couple of lazy blogging days. You’re perfectly allowed. I like those two SNL guys, too. Hope your marketing is coming together. That’s a lot on your plate.

      Thank you. I’m starting phase two now that the paperback is out. But I don’t mind a few stumbles, as long as I mostly stay upright.
