It's Showtime...

Friday, May 12, 2006

You're here to see what I'm going to announce - aren't cha?

I know, I'm such a tease.

Well, first I got a little letter, and I was apprehensive. Cause little letters aren't good.....


So I looked anxious and said, "That's it?" as Terrance handed me...



A big Envelope. Which held.....



My acceptance letter.

And there was much rejoicing..


Because there is always time for Monty Python.

And (Drumroll continues.....) My ClubMom site is up. It will start getting promoted on Monday, so you can all be the official first commenters on the hottest piece of Mom blog ass this side o' the Mississippi. Well, that and I'm going to be paid by how many hits I get, so spread it around N'k? Cause I've quit my job as of June 16th and this Mama needs a new non-company owned laptop with Wifi.

I have to say, I am in a great group of ladies in this "Brave New ClubMom World", as sweetney put it. (I then congratulated her on allowing me to pull an Aldous Huxley reference out of my ass. Cause nothing perks up the day like underused literary references, I say.) Amy of Amalah is the Supreme Overlord Blog Mommy, Kristen of Motherhood Uncensored, Jenn, Nina, Jenny, Amanda, Grace, Linda and Lena are all on board, so it is sure to make for some interesting, funny, thought provoking reading. (Watch us all try not to swear)

So the new blog is here:

http://gimleteye.clubmom.com

And get it? The Gimlet Eye? Baleful Regards? HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA. I do so make myself laugh.

Tomorrow? Gnomes. That's all I have to say.

19 Baleful Regards:

Ooh, they let you say ass on clubmom?

Dawn said...

No, I think they would prefer that we work clean, which is why I plan on dropping extra swear words on this here blog. My "freedom" blog, if you will...

Izzy said...

Congrats on that ass kickingly cool acceptancce letter! I'm proud to know such an accomplished woman who also uses swear words so creatively :)

Now I'm off to jack up your Club Mom stats.

Lisa said...

Yeay!!! I am SO very happy and excited for you. Yeay Dawn.

lildb said...

sweeeet. I'm so stoked for you.

and nice Aldous Huxley reference.

also, why did the word "gnomes" feel so forlorn to me? I think because I was hoping to read "gnomes, bitches." *shrug* I don't know why. maybe it's 'cause I'm already feening for your swear-y self, now that you're going to be representing on the pg side of the street. I'm glad to hear you won't totally desert the xxx rated side. ;p

I do loves me some x-rated Dawn, baby.

Cindy said...

Dawn, congratulations on the acceptance not only of the PhD program but on acceptance of the turmoil you were feeling...I wish you the best. Now go kick some ass!

madge said...

I know I'm supposed to be happy for you, but now you won't be a mere 1+ hours away. Boooo.

Seriously, though, WONDERFUL news. And MONTREAL!?! And DOCTOR Dawn. And ClubMOM.

I can actually hear the horns! the fanfare! the crowds cheering!

Many hearty congratulations. And there will be a mandatory Kittery/Portsmouth meet-up before you crazy kids cross the border. N'kay?

Gurukarm Kaur said...

Congrats!! I have to ask though, now that you all are leaving, the black population of NH drops back to, what, 3? :-)

Hope you all love the frozen north!

TB said...

Congrats on all counts, although I have a feeling that Baleful Regards will now be even more all swearing all the time. Have fun at ClubMom!

mama_tulip said...

Congrats, dude. You are rockin' the casbah, hard.

Nancy said...

Congrats, my friend. Well deserved, all of it. Heading over to check out the new blog now.

Jess Riley said...

Congratulations on the acceptance! I will toast you with wine tonight.

PS: I loved your first Club Mom entry. :)

Fraulein N said...

Yaaaay! Congrats!

Eileen said...

Saw your post on Riley's site. I LOVE the Hoodoo Gurus. I shall live consumed with envy that you actually saw them in concert. And you got accepted for a PhD- is your life perfect or what?

Jess said...

How did I miss this!

Congrats seems inadequate considering how much you've wanted this . . .you are going to rock Canada.

You are now Baleful Regards, Doctor of Philosophy in training.

Her Bad Mother said...

*Heartfelt* congratulations. On all fronts. (But especially pleased that the ranks of Academommies are growing! And that you will be pursuing academommyness in our fair, cold country!)

selzach said...

Woo Hoo & Congratulations!

Diana said...

YAY! on the acceptance, but really Dawn, was there ever any doubt?
Congrats.

Mignon said...

Awesome on all fronts. Now you can have a good 'ole Dawner Party (I think that should be your blog name!).

I can't believe you're gonna be Doctor Dawn. On your syndicated radio show. With Vlad the cooky, reporter-about-town stirring up trouble...
