Thanks, Boys!

22 Jan

Today I feel famous for being kind of a loser. Here’s why:

First of all, Simon, Twitter Maestro and author of sweetandweak, retweeted me to well over 4,000 people. That dude is a tweet magician.

Then, Twin Daddy got his inspiration from me for his Daily Prompt. He would like to get a video of my nose whistling. Boys are funny. And gross.

Also, David Harding said he is including me in a book of his AND he read the mess that is the makings of my book (where yes, I am a bit of a loser) and said he loved it.

AND…I just walked out of the lab and someone made red velvet cupcakes, so I think today is pretty much one of the best days ever.

So, that’s why today I feel a bit famous and yes,  proud to be kind of a loser who has a nose that whistles at the worst times imaginable.


Thanks guys.

Finally, I won’t be around the blogs as much because I am trying to write more and goof off less. I’ve never been very good at managing my time for these kinds of things. I once wrote a 40-page paper in a one week (and got an A, mind you) and my teacher said I was the only one who followed the directions. Weird.

I will still write here, just not as consistently, and I will do my best to comment on your blogs because I enjoy reading them. You all make me laugh and cry and some of you turn me on and many of you inspire me so very much. It’s a wild roller coaster of emotions, really. Jesus.

If you’ve ever laughed and then cried after being horny because of people you’ve never met…you will know what I mean.

Wow, I just reread that sentence.

See you soon!

    Ravens fan? I think we have a point of contention here.

    La La, I hope you enjoy your day being famous. Your tweet was definitely worth a retweet! Enjoy your cupcake. I can understand about needing more time to write and get down to business. I understand that completely. Good luck!


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 12:56 pm #

      Ugh I am terrible at it. Thank you so much for your support. MWAH!

    Pretty lady! Wish you tons of luck with writing and you know, it’s pretty cool to be famous about random things, because that way you can be famous about a lot of little things instead of one big thing! (and eat more cupcakes to celebrate it all. Hehe.)

    Red Velvets…ohmigosh! Need to bake a batch again! :)


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 12:55 pm #

      I will eat one cupcake to celebrate, and one for you, too. ;-) Thank you so much for the well wishes!!

    Good luck with the writing.



    • La La January 22, 2013 at 12:55 pm #

      Thanks, Tim! I appreciate it.


  5. Cat Forsley January 22, 2013 at 12:51 pm #

    i seriously love your world :) :) xx


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 12:55 pm #

      You are too, too sweet!


      • Cat Forsley January 22, 2013 at 12:56 pm #

        nawww ….i just love Your world :) xx


        • La La January 22, 2013 at 1:57 pm #

          Cat you’re awesome. Thank you so much.

    Good luck and keep going!


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 1:04 pm #

      I’m trying. I am. I get, well, sidetracked.


      • gingerfightback January 22, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

        Don’t we all – focus on core activities in short bursts to get going – rest by nose whistling. A rare gift.


        • La La January 22, 2013 at 1:09 pm #

          Thanks, Coach! And thank you for always sharing me via Twitter. I am most grateful. ::nose whistles wistfully::


          • gingerfightback January 22, 2013 at 1:27 pm #

            No worries – you have talent so stretch yourself so as not regret it in years to come!


            • La La January 22, 2013 at 1:32 pm #

              I just hugged you like 104 times.


  7. Carrie Rubin January 22, 2013 at 1:24 pm #

    That was a great tweet. I retweeted it to my ‘posse’ too. :) Good luck with the writing!


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 1:26 pm #

      THANKS CARRIE! You’re wonderful. I am not very good at Twitter so when people like me there I feel accomplished and stuff….even if it means absolutely nothing haha.


      • Carrie Rubin January 22, 2013 at 1:29 pm #

        It IS fun to see one of our tweets retweeted. I wonder what celebrities think to see their tweet retweeted hundreds and thousands of times. They probably don’t even notice, and yet I’m happy for one…


        • La La January 22, 2013 at 1:31 pm #

          Same here, so so grateful for just one retweet. Maybe we will find out how the celebrities feel someday (maybe)!


          • Carrie Rubin January 22, 2013 at 1:38 pm #

            If so, may it be on the day of my next book’s release… ;)


  8. rheath40 January 22, 2013 at 1:53 pm #

    I never felt such feelings as you describe in your final paragraph until I started blogging. Now I feel all of those emotions on a daily basis. I’m lucky I don’t sit at my desk, buck naked with a quart of ice cream while tears stream down my face. Yeesh!


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 1:58 pm #

      HA that would be awesome. I will join you because we will likely be doing this from a mental hospital.


      • rheath40 January 22, 2013 at 1:58 pm #

        Yes we will. There’s no way in hell anyone wants to see my naked at work. Hahahahahahaha!


        • La La January 22, 2013 at 2:01 pm #

          Haha. Don’t think I should get naked in this AIDS lab.


          • rheath40 January 22, 2013 at 2:06 pm #

            Nah, that’s probably NOT the best idea.


  9. becca3416 January 22, 2013 at 2:04 pm #

    Ughhhhhhh I love your hair. That was a moan/grunt. Sorry, it’s weird. I think I will retweet you too so you feel even MORE famous, and in turn, people will think I am famous because it will look like I know famous people personally, and it will be so great.


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 2:08 pm #

      Aw thanks, it feels weird when I wash it. We are famous, aren’t we? Pose with me. ::poses and stuff::


      • becca3416 January 22, 2013 at 2:09 pm #

        Fucking paparazzi! *poses anyway*


        • La La January 22, 2013 at 2:11 pm #

          ::rolls eyes at paparazzi, but secretly loves every second of it::


  10. Lori D January 22, 2013 at 2:15 pm #

    Red velvet cupcakes just put it over the top. And this blogger can say she knew you when. Congrats.


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 2:21 pm #

      Haha, Lori you’re great. Thanks so so much! Just had my second cupcake…


  11. workspousestory January 22, 2013 at 2:36 pm #

    Well you are uber-famous now ;) congrats!

    I do know that nose sound. I make that during sex all the time. Yeah.


  12. Pigeon Heart January 22, 2013 at 2:50 pm #

    You’re just kind of the best is all.


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

      Haha, that’s all, no big deal, right?


  13. Madame Weebles January 22, 2013 at 3:16 pm #

    Where’s your tiara, girl? I will miss your blogging but I understand. Go Ravens!


  14. Kylie January 22, 2013 at 3:42 pm #

    It’s hard to balance the reading, writing, and actual working (and oh, yeah, living), isn’t it?

    Especially when you keep hearing that distracting whistle.


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 4:03 pm #

      The whistle is just like AAHH I am so busy here leave me alone!


  15. davidhardingblogs January 22, 2013 at 3:57 pm #

    Look, I said I loved it but that was before I knew your nose whistled. I need time to think about this.


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 4:02 pm #

      No! I can do better! Please!


  16. calahan January 22, 2013 at 4:34 pm #

    What sort of writing will you be working on? Poetry?


    • La La January 22, 2013 at 9:31 pm #

      Humor stories, kind of like what I do here. I was considering going to poetry route with another girl from Baltimore for a different project. :-)


  17. stuffitellmysister January 22, 2013 at 6:58 pm #

    Congrats and go get em! Paula ;)


  18. kenthinksaloud January 23, 2013 at 3:15 am #

    Good luck with the writing – I am having a similar problem with finding time for mine too. Best wishes La La :)


  19. Simon January 23, 2013 at 8:51 am #

    I am the one who is flattered. You put a picture of me buried in the sand on your blog! That tweet was hilarious as are you.
    Thanks LaLa.


  20. happyzinny January 23, 2013 at 11:19 pm #

    My ears whistle sometimes- that is, my stupid hearing aids do. We could tour some time as The Mood Killers.

    P.S. Good luck with the writing. Humor stories should be a natural for you. You’re hilarious!


    • La La January 24, 2013 at 1:43 pm #

      Aw thank you! That’s so sweet. And yes, you and I should go on a bar comedy tour or something haha.


      • happyzinny January 25, 2013 at 12:03 am #

        I’m so sorry I didn’t say this sooner- Thanks for the follow! I’m extremely flattered. (I’m such an idiot sometimes. Although it was hard to concentrate with all that whistling…)


  21. Kourtney Heintz January 26, 2013 at 3:27 pm #

    Sounds like a terrific day! Totally understand the need to put writing first. Look forward to your next post. :)


  22. The Hook January 27, 2013 at 5:04 pm #

    You look absolutely stunning in that pic.


  23. Maddie Cochere January 29, 2013 at 4:58 pm #

    Yay that you are writing a book! I decided to dial back my blog presence as well. I want to write my next book, and I’ve let blogging consume my life. Time to fix that. Good luck and have fun as you write, Lauren! :-)
