Let's Panic

The site that inspired the book!

At LET'S PANIC ABOUT BABIES, Eden Kennedy and I share our hard-won wisdom and tell you exactly what to think and feel and do, whether you're about to have a baby or already did and don't know what to do with it. → 

« What Henry thinks I am thinking, all the time. | Main | This one's for you, Sarah Brown. »

You can't even imagine

how much my head hurts right now. Or maybe you can! In which case you understand that I am hard-pressed to come up with a post for today. Is it enough to say that there's a new Wonderland up today? Oh, I hope so.

I'm taking requests for my next finslippy post, which I will write this weekend unless my brains come shooting out through my eye sockets. So come on, what do you want me to write about? It's like improv, only in writing, and I'll have time to edit. So nothing like improv. Ow. My head. Ow.

Q&A!! Give your readers a few days to ask ANY question they want (thereby giving yourself a mini-vacation from blogging) and then you pick, say, ten to answer completely honestly. Ok, I stole that idea from Confessions of a Pioneer Woman, but it's a great one, no?

Sorry about the headache - you could write about how you and Eden decided to write abook - since she outed you guys and all.

Luckily my head doesnt hurt right now. I've heard of the allergies going around giving people headaches. Good luck on your ideas for writing about, sometimes it just takes a while for something to pop in. :)

You don't write much about the hubby. Do you have a secret pact with him that he will not appear as a guest character on this site but once a ... uh, semi-annually?

Tell us about him. How did you meet? What made you fall in love with him?

House stuff! What have you done to your house that's worked out great, what makes you want to throw rocks through its windows and run away to Mississippi, what's on your when-we-win-the-lottery wishlist?

I don't think you've completely mined the comedic gold that is the argyle sock.

Tell a story from your childhood, one that involves your parents and siblings and is about something relatively mundane and familyish, but tell it in your patented Finslippy way.

That will be hilarious. I bet you can remember exactly what it was like to be a kid. All those weird things you think and activities that you do that in hindsight, are nothing if not exquisite comedic writing material.

I'd like to hear about the signs of spring in your yard, and if you've planted anything (and if it's still alive). I just remember taking my girls around the garden looking for new life after a long, cold winter.

What should I wear on Monday? I won't get dressed until I read you post.

What should a new reader like me know about you?

It's up to you, Alice, to re-design American culture. What's wrong today and how are you planning to fix that tomorrow?
March 23, 2007 | Unregistered Commenterninja
wow, i got a headache just from the rapid-fire questioning. it's like being in the White House Press room.

What *is* your strategy for Iraq, anyhow?

I have the winning lottery ticket in my pocket (I think). If I split the winnings with you, because you rock, what will you do with it? Lets assume its all the money you could spend.

I'm not sure but I know that the argyle sock comment made me snort.

How about that and also your view on the sweater vest? Valid member of the sweater family or creepy uncle no one really talks about?

What's the new Frompy/Crazy Dancers?!?!

Relatively new to your site, but think a humorous send up of your day as a successful and well-read blogger might be worthwhile and just think it'll make all us new bloggers weep with envy.

Does your head actually hurt, or are you likening the pain of coming up with a post to the pain of a serious headache?

Either way, I hope it doesn't hurt too much. But for your next post, please describe the pain in as much detail as possible, using as many metpahors for discomfort as you can conjure. Further, if any of these metaphors involve fish, by all means, use them.
