One of my favorite sites, Throwing Things, gave me some lovely linkity love yesterday. At first, I was positively thrilled - I mean, when a site that you've admired from afar for so very long (nearly 4 years now) acknowledges that you share space in the blogosphere, you get a little excited. Then, you realize that your big day in the sun links all those nice folks directly to a post you've just recently written about a squirrel in your chimney. A post replete with foul language. Go me! I'm too sexy for this blog now.
Anyway, my favorite Throwing Things story is this:
I went to a book signing that featured the lovely Jennifer Weiner, who also happens to be the wife of Adam Bonin, one of the co-founders of Throwing Things (his solo blog is what I actually started reading first). So, I wait in line for my book to be signed and when my big turn comes, what do I do? I get all breathlessly fangirl on her about Throwing Things. Yep, her husband's blog. I then get more freaky on her by trying to convince her that YES, her and Adam should totally try out for the Amazing Race. Totally! Anyway, I think my friend that came to the book signing with me was more than a little embarrassed. But I'll bet Jennifer didn't sign her book with a heart. Ha!
Anyway, I have a doctor's appointment today - my 20 week appointment. Be sure to check back later for such thrilling updates on things like heartrates, urine tests, measurements, and weight gain because OMIGOD, the excitement never ends. I can't believe I am already halfway there with NewKid. With Arun, at the 20 week mark I was thinking more along the lines of "I'm only halfway there." This gestation is just flying right by. Whee.
