special in a terrifying but special way

So, today is a special day. Special in a terrifying but special way. I feel that I should prep you, have you sit down and pour you a bourbon and light you a Virginia Slim before I let you in on a secret. Ready? I. Am. A. Complete. Nerdy. Dork.

Yes. It's true. And later today I will no longer be able to hide it. See, this is the deal. I'm going to be in an etsy video. And I haven't even seen it yet. And I'm a little worried that every weird mannerism and tick will be magnified to a million. My hair will stick straight out, I will babble on like a senseless idiot and my outfit will scream that show where the shrill couple accosts you to tell you how much you suck and then redoes your closet.

And the funny thing is, I'm not so much the kind of lady to be all "Oh I have to be perfect and everyone should like me." But somehow a video, which if you didn't already know is a moving talking and in color affair, is a little intimidating. I don't think I want to see myself moving and talking and in color. MY God. How do the movie stars do it??

So, consider yourselves warned.

I will probably post the video here when it goes live. If I don't pass out from embarassment.


And now I'm going to go find that bottle of bourbon and break out the Virginia Slims.

Yay! Can't wait to see it!

I've tried to video myself for blog posts with my little mac's camera, but I am SO weird. I roll my eyes a lot... I know how you feel :)

I am sure it will be great.
And if you look anything like the guy in the picture in it, at least it will have the merit of being visually entertaining :)

You'll be terrific in it, I'm sure. I was in an etsy video once -- a couple years ago. I know what you mean.

Oh, yippee! YAY! Fantastic! I can't wait! I already know I will adore you even more( if that is possible) and it will be almost like being in a room with you, having tea( I am going to have a cup of tea while I watch the video), I can't wait! Don't be worried....we will love you no matter what. ;) And that photo above? HI-larious.
Please don't wear your underwear that way, it may hurt you.
