Me talk pretty one day

March 4th, 2009


A little feedback:

Mojo Mom Amy Tiemann is the wind at my back today. Click on her Quote of the Day before midnight tonight to see how she is counting down the days to the debut of the new edition of her book, which I can’t wait to read. Without expectation, maybe?

Over at A Room of Mama’s Own, everyone’s favorite pseudonym MPJ finally took a leap and overcame her dread of a dusty old book. Everyone, go cheer her on until she crash lands at a happy ending!

And good grief, the folks at Mutual of Omaha snagged some of my aha moments for the launch of their new feel good ad campaign. Find Cheerio Road on the lower right, bringing up the bottom. I especially like their timing, because we all know by now that the aha in the insurance industry isn’t me, it’s them.

Edited to add: Oops! Time’s up. My moment in Omaha is over. They ripped me off their website because they don’t like my sense of humor. And I don’t like their sense of theft. The ahas just keep on coming, don’t they? That’s okay. The only readers who were clicking through were, naturally, in Omaha.

  2. Now I have the Mutual of Omaha theme song in my head. I am not sure whether to post a followup on your book today (I did finish) or write more about serial killers. Decisions, decisions!

  4. Please tell me the insurance folks gave you some sort of compensation for the linking to your post? If they’re going to bill themselves as the “official sponsor of aha moments,” they’d better pony-up some actual sponsorship, imho.

  5. Of course not Lorianne. They didn’t even give me an FYI.

    But they hedged against the risk of that by bundling me into a tranche and turning me into a derivative. 🙂

  8. Mutual of Omaha doesn’t take kindly to insurance humor. But geez, can’t anyone tell real people from virtual ones anymore? Can’t anyone tell the real web from the corporate one? A living, user-driven social hub from Big Brother’s? Aha! Time to do the laundry.
