5/2012 - Was interviewed on ABC News {dot} com about my kids' participation in MMA, which is one of the best parental decisions I ever made, truly. 

Babble named me the #4 funniest mom on Twitter in 2011. They also like my blog a little.

See mom, I told you saying fuck all the fucking time on the internet would motherfucking pay off someday.

Related: John Cave Osborne wrote a lovely piece at Babble’s Strollerderby blog wherein he said ridiculously nice and not totally untrue things about my blog and my writing style , and I didn’t even have to show him my boobies to get him to write it.

*No, I am not sleeping with anyone at Babble
