My birthday wish

1 Dec

Today is my birthday. Please, there’s no need to sing. All I really want is for you to help Overheard in the Newsroom win Mashable’s Open Web Award in the “best site for journalists” category.

That’s not too much, is it?

I know some of you are journalists; you’ll love Overheard in the Newsroom. (Even if you aren’t a journalist, I think you’ll find something amusing there. Or at least will understand the nonsense journalists must deal with every day.)

OHnewsroom (everything needs an abbreviation) is a project my friend Kevin started almost a year ago. It’s a collection of the best quotes heard in newsrooms around the world. So to be one of the five finalists in Mashable’s contest, and have thousands of followers on Twitter and Facebook is quite an accomplishment.

Now about voting. It’s so easy Kevin’s grandmother can do it:

Vote now. (Just follow that link; all of the hard work is done for you.) Vote often. (Every day through Dec. 13.) And help spread the word.

It’s true — cats can steal your soul

Text message conversation of the week:

Kevin: I woke up at 9 a.m. to breakfast cooking. Ate, then went back to sleep till now. Yay for vacations!

Me: I woke up at 10 to Bear being obnoxious. Went back to bed until now when she wants to snuggle. Or steal my soul. Could go either way.

‘An amazing duo’

Kevin came to St. Louis on Thursday! What do you think we did first?

Nope. We talked to web celeb Ross Mathews.

And then we spent the next two days singing “The Trolley Song.”

Look — puppies!

The nation has puppy fever. Kevin is helping to fuel puppy fever.

The Always Fabulous Kevin sent me this card — it made my day!

And truer words have not been written.
