A while back, I told y’all that I had the opportunity to step out from behind the safety of my keyboard and job as Message Board Moderator for MSN’s Mom’s Homeroom, and film a little ancillary video for an upcoming show about Homework. And how to get and keep your kids organized.
The video is up here. (And it’s best viewed in Firefox. I have no idea why.)
And yes, I did my own makeup, wardrobe, and hair.
Which should give you an idea why I prefer to be seated behind my keyboard. In relative anonymity. Sporting stained yoga pants and a mismatched t-shirt. And btw, that tall beautiful blonde that they show working with her boys is my SIL, Trish. I tried to talk them into letting me use her as my body double.
I think they did a fabulous job editing, because they were able to make me look like I was keeping all the wild gesturing, nervous laughter, and fast talking to a minimum. While still stringing together coherent thoughts when all the while I was really thinking “how much weight does the camera really add?”.
And the answer to that question, my friends, is 50 pounds. Just sayin’.
