UPDATED: I was just on Nightline and I didn’t even kill anyone. That anybody is aware of, at least.

It’s close to midnight but I was just watching TV because a bunch of people on twitter told me they saw me on Nightline.  I caught the last part of it and apparently my blog had a 2.5 second cameo on a story about Soleil Moon Frye (who is super-sweet in real life, and who once accidentally invited me to her house*.)  So then I ran and jumped on the bed and woke Victor up while screaming “I WAS JUST ON DATELINE WITH PUNKY BREWSTER!”  And then Victor glared at me and asked if I was hallucinating from the Ambien again and I assured him that I wasn’t.  Then he rolled over and muttered loudly, “I’M HIDING ALL THE SLEEPING PILLS TOMORROW MORNING,” which was really not the high-five I was looking for, and so I may have hit him with a pillow to get his attention.  Then he growled into the pillow, “So you want me to believe you were on To Catch A Predator.  With Punky Brewster.  And none of this is a hallucination?”  And then I realized that I’d said I was on Dateline instead of Nightline, and so I forgave him for doubting me.  Then I made him sit up so he could watch the 2.5 seconds where they showed my blog, and he rolled his eyes at me and was like “Yep.  That’s your blog.  I see it all the time in real life.  Now please turn the tv down because some of us have to get up early in the morning.”

A less stable woman would have murdered her husband with an axe at that very moment, but it occurred to me that murdering Victor would serve no point, as I’d still have no one to high-five when they flashed our pictures on Crimeline later on.  Also, I don’t know if there’s a show called Crimeline, but my guess is that there is.

PS.  This post was written under the influence of adrenaline.  And sleeping pills.  But not the kind that make you hallucinate.  The kind that make you glad you can’t remember where you put the axe.

I’m going to stop writing now.

*This sounds like a more entertaining story than it is.  Soleil invited me to her house for something, but I assumed it must have just been an accident so I politely declined to avoid any awkwardness, and then she said she was sorry I couldn’t make it.  That’s the story.  They’re not all gonna be winners, y’all.

UPDATE:  Here’s the episode if you’re my mom and actually want to see it.  It’s not the Craigslist Killer story.  Stop panicking, mom.

Remember the time that Nightline ran that picture of me telling everyone that I get paid to write about clown porn? Aw. Good times. This is going in the Christmas letter.

  23. I feel like I should point out that by “pillow” I meant “cat.” Because (according to Victor) there’s a big difference between throwing a pillow at someone and throwing a cat at someone. But there really isn’t because they’re both fluffy. Plus, that cat only has half of his original claws. He’s like a vaguely pointy pillow. One that will scratch out your corneas if given the chance.

We had fun, and we caught the attention of a young local news reporter on a slow day. We ran back to our home to tell our mom about a guy that wanted to take our pictures for a newspaper. She looked a bit scared and then angry with us…in addition to thinking we were lying. Then she met the guy and thus we were nicknamed “The Poppins Pretenders.” (She still has the newspaper clipping.

  184. This. Is. HUGE.

    Nightline is the reason why nobody will ever benefit from my death! On one episode they said that spouses who take out life insurance policies have a much higher chance of being murdered.
    I was like screw that noise. Even though I’m not married, I’m not taking any chances. I’d rather have my loved ones foot my funeral bill later on, than cover it myself while I’m still young.

    Actually, come to think of it, maybe it was 48 Hours Mystery…

    Still. This. Is. Huge.

  186. So, while watching the intro to the show, I was thinking “Is she talking about the mommy moguls, or the panda suits? Cause this could go either way, really.”

  187. Your comments jumped by 80 comments just as I was reading this post. I’m so glad the video was being showed with limited commercials I was worried I was going to be bombarded by car ads just to see your spot.😛

  190. There is (or was) a show called crimeline where I live (Dublin, Ireland.) So your freaking spot on (as usual!!) If you need a hi-five I’m right here🙂

  191. Thoroughly epic. Wonder how long before the right-wing nutbars start screaming about the clown porn. Of course, Herman Cain probably has a huge collection of clown porn, so they shouldn’t really complain.

  192. Did you know that following the mom blogger story on Nightline is a story about… BEARS?! Panda Bears actually. It’s like Nightline knew a feud was brewing. And they’re toying with you. What’s more, you mention clown porn on your site and what’s in their segment? Panda Porn. Coincidence? I think not.

  193. I totally heard you screaming in my head about Punky Brewster. I would shit a purple twinkie fer sure. The TV thing is pretty cool too, but to correspond with Punky is more than I can BEAR.🙂

  196. But…seriously? I would die to read your Christmas letter- if you get one written, please post! Not if, when. I don’t mean to imply doubt of your abilities to pen holiday missives.

  197. This is the most fun blog I have found in a long time! I am glad to find you…. Can’t wait for more.

    I am a Grammy right now, to two adorable kidlets. I would have loved your wit and especially the ‘f’ word back in the day. My kids were 17 months apart and it was a lonely time. Way, way back when there wasn’t an internet.

    Great work!

    Love,
    Catherine

  198. I could not be more proud of you than if you were actually on Dateline. Which I would end up watching with the husband because we somehow get sucked in, standing in front of the tv on our way to another room, lassoed by the dunkity dunk dunk music and the repetition of the story over and over and over again.
