Hello everyone. I hope your summer has been going well. There’s queso dip in the fridge if you want it. I apologize for not posting lately, I’ve been traveling Europe for the past month. How was it, you ask? A little like this song, I’d say:
I learned two things in my travels -
1. You do not want to tangle with a gypsy herd. It’s simply a battle you cannot win.
2. Dance is not the international language of love.
This is the life of a jetsetting ten-thousandaire; let’s try and keep up.
Some interesting FP news from while I was gone:
Obviously there was a wave of flash mobs in Philadelphia. The media coverage was unflattering to say the least. No one had any clue about what do to (except buying guns). Where do people go when they need to sound intelligent about things they know absolutely nothing about? The internet. This caused FP to experience a huge surge in traffic. Because I’m so well optimized for the words Flash, Philly, and Mob, quite a few people legitimately researching flash mobs happened upon my post (here). By the time I got back and Googled “Philadelphia flash mobs”, it was still on the first page of results. This is the very reason I started this website. To pollute the legitimate world of online information with complete nonsense passed off as fact (see “Where are they now?” series).
Interestingly enough, one of those visitors was someone from the City of Philadelphia. That person apparently Googled “tactics for prevention flash mob violence” and read through my article on flash mobs an alarming five times…
You’re welcome Philadelphia; and no, I’m not interested in that vacated School Superintendent position; thanks for asking. I have my sights set higher. Have my tactics been called such things as “dangerous” and “Jim Crow era”? Yes. Do I get results? Maybe. But Nutter – when you’re ready to be proactive rather than reactive to Philadelphia’s violence problem, give me a call, real talk.
And the big one – my new site AwkwardAllDay.com launched.
And the reviews are in:
With its disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Awkward All Day shares with us life’s ups and downs. Awkward All Day is a candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself.
Utterly courageous, wickedly funny, and unexpectedly moving in its truth telling, Awkward All Day is a website of wisdom, advice, and laugh-out-loud moments, a scrumptious, irresistible treat.
Check it out here: www.awkwardallday.com
It’s also taken off in a small way. We’ve had over 4,000 hits in the first 1.5 months. And similarly to a single mother who promises to spend equal amounts of time with both of her children following a divorce, I’ll tell you that I love both websites equally. Do I? You’ll have suspicions, but you won’t know until you grow up and have websites of your own.
But, the good news is that the summer Hiatus is over. I return fresher, rejuvenated, and more committed that ever to bringing you the very best in biotechnology news.
Here are some highlights from AwkwardAllDay so far:
