All Points Bulletin

Crazy thing happened yesterday.





Any guesses?





Any guesses? Come on. Go ahead and try to guess. Cause you could guess all day and never guess this one. I dare ya.








Ok. So, these hip young people are Associated Press reporters. They came down from their Washington Bureau to do a story on me. Dude!! ASSOCIATED PRESS!

To be a proper hostess I fed them coffee cake.




Later it was chips and guacamole. And some of the most amazing heavenly elixir on earth . . . Jones Soda Co. Creme Soda. That stuff is so good. I like a good creme soda but a good one is hard to find. Often they are too sweet and too syrupy. Not this otherworldly concoction. It is the perfect blend . . . um . . . er . . ..

Did I mention the ASSOCIATED PRESS was at my house yesterday from 11am until 4pm?




This is Julie Pace. When I first talked to her on the phone I thought the interview sounded fun but doubted it would lead to anything. I figured she was someones intern making a few calls. But then I googled her. Eeeek! The nerves set in and I was terrified that she would call again. She did call the next day and told me they were coming October 2nd. Oh. My. Stinkin'. Heck.







And this is Matt Ford. He is a multimedia producer from Associated Press. I've googled him and find lots of stories he has produced and others he has contributed to but I can't point you to one concise place to read all about him. Dangit Matt!




So, my story should hit AP outlets next week. I'll provide some links here once I know it is running.

And get this. They are flying me to Washington, DC on election day to watch the presidential election results come in with other voters and political analysts. It will be some kind of live Internet streaming video kind of dealy bob.

Holy crap.

Mrs. V said...

I am speechless, I thought you were a humble stay-at-home-Mom, canning what you grow in your backyard, making soap from scratch and sewing quilts. So what is going on, is this an election Forum you were picked for? I knew you were special but this is awesome. This is definitely better than being picked for jury duty.

kirsten said...

Where do I even begin to drop the wows? Super wow! That is so awesome, Dana! But it doesn't exactly surprise me...I mean, it IS big, but not at all unfitting.

Renae said...

Hi,I found your post when I googled their names. They did an interview on me, also! Aren't they just the nicest people! Mine should be on sometime next week, I think. Anyway, I'll be at the election party also, I think it's fantastic that they are letting us participate and paying for it all! I think it's awesome that you blogged about this (I didn't even think to take pictures!) Which issue did they interview you on? We were the economy. Well, maybe we'll see each other in DC. Take care!
