Ubiquitous

I went to another Suburban Housewife Party tonight. I haven't been to one since I last wrote about it in January.  I actually picked up the stuff I ordered at the last party tonight. I think it's a racket my friend has going. I never get to see her so she calls me when she has these parties and I don't see her again until she has another. Of course, I go because I ordered stuff at the previous party and she is holding it for me.

I came home tonight and there was an email from a VERY kind AOL Editor who informed me that I was being featured somewhere else regarding that same entry.  I figure by morning I'll be on the Welcome Page. But, before you start throwing eggs at my journal because of all of this bally-hoo, let me explain. I think I figured out what is going on here. My mother! Yup! That's right.

I think my mother has paid AOL to plaster my face all over the place.  She still wants grandkids from me and won't accept no for an answer. As such, I think she is in cahoots with AOL to find me a man. Since, being featured on the Finance page wasn't getting the job done she figured People Connection was a sure thing. Next it'll be the Welcome Screen and if that doesn't work, I think she has a Billboard on reserve some where.

Now, Robbie, don't be coy! We know you're really trying to take over the world.  Your evil plan slip is showing! (Insert evil laugh here.) Just kidding, it's just that we all love you.

I think my mom has recently been working with your mom! Last week when I was an editor's pick, my face (and journal link) was also used on the People Connection Page, and then just recently, I showed up again on the Photo Talk page (~is that what that page is called? I forget.~) Anyhoo - my mom asked me to do a screen capture so that she could have such as a momento (now if that's not incriminating evidence I don't know what is!) but I'm no techie wiz like yourself and therefore was not able to produce said capture. No doubt, she'll be trying to promote me elsewhere until mission is accomplished ;-)

And it's a beautiful face and should be plastered everywhere. I agree with your mom. : )
The billboard joke had me chuckling. : )

Robbie,

My married girlfriends are becoming Partylite and Pampered Chef reps.  It's so bizarre that these girls who I used to down margaritas with in college are now trying to sell me egg coddlers. =]

As for the single girl parties you mentioned in the linked entry, I'm with ya on that one.  Although now that Joanne Webb of North Texas has been cleared of those ridiculous obsenity charges, it'll be interesting to see how many Passion Parties pop up. =]

And I think we share the same mom.  My mother went so far as to sign me up for a gym she thought would have tons of husband potential. =D  aye yie yie

tara =]

Robbie, Super AOL-Journaler. She's anywhere. She's everywhere. This is a neat piggyback onto Scalzi's latest assignment.

Egg separators and stoneware bakers is where it's at, girlfriend. Stay strong.

Uh-oh, you are being featured on the People Connection?!?!  Woo-hoo, you will be getting lots of emails from men now!!!  Sherry was featured there and had to practically beat them all away with a bat, and she is married!!!!  You are going to have fun, fun, fun!  Hee-hee!  Sorry, I have to laugh at this situation and also your explanation about your Momma putting you "out there"!  Too funny!!!
Hugs and love, Lisa

I think that is so funny!!!! Mothers can be very sneaky!!!! nah...just kidding!!! I think it's great that you are being featured!!!! Congrats!!!

freeepeace said...

LOL at your mother comment.  That IS a great picture of you.  And you deserve to be featured.  Looking forward to seeing you on the Welcome Screen!  :D

mdkjic said...

hmm...the words "Suburban Housewife party" sound nasty to me.  I think it is because I have recieved many e-mails that say, "Suburban housewives really know how to party when their husbands aren't around."  

plieck30 said...

Congratulations, you are a good writer. I think you are too independent to need a man but I guess it is a Mom's job to want her daughter to have one. LOL  Paula

babyshark28 said...

LOL!    well, I am thinking it's your strong and intelligent character shining through. Not your mother. :D  I think it's wonderful, and so I will be keeping my eggs to make french toast with. :p

I am now officially having fantasies about the Robbie triplets. You don't want to know.

slowmotionlife said...

ROFL!!  Yup!!  You'll be getting toe-lickin' emails before you know it!  Rawrrrr.  LOL

LOL  Isn't it funny how we go weeks or months hearing nothing from the AOL editor people then, all of a sudden, we write one entry and every "talk" page wants to feature it?  And then, after months of obscurity, there we are, all over the place.  LOL  Same thing happened to me last week -- thankfully, although I sent them photos, none were used.  But that didn't stop me from bragging about it.

I think it's cool.  And I will look forward to seeing your face on my welcome screen in the near future.  With phone number, e-mail address, height, weight, marital status, social security number, shoe size and, especially, ring size!  LOL.  I was also very relieved to know that your mom will be okay.  No matter how we might argue with her, we only have one, and when we lose our mom, we lose a big chunk of who we are.  Unfortunately, I know that all too well.

Take care Robbie!

LOL! Your mom sounds a bit like mine! After my divorce, she had all sorts of dates lined up for me. She was more concerned about my biological clock than I was! Just for spite, I remarried someone she didn't approve of ;P

musenla said...

Well, have you produced a would-be fiance yet?  Because it sounds to me like your mother won't stop until you've found one!  =P

Congrats on the main welcome screen feature.  131 comments, wow.  You sure have arrived.  =P
