Moxie Mona in da House!

So, you guys all know I'm kinda famous.

Maybe not in the traditional paparazzi-stalked-can't-even-smoke-while-preggers famous, but in the more I-know-someone-who-has-a-cousin-who-is-the-ex-boyfriend-of-someone-whose-sister-works-at-the-deli-that-Cameron-Diaz-goes-to famous, which is almost like the same thing, but different, right?.

As far as I'm concerned my kinda famous is even more awesome than the Robert Pattinson (you knew he'd be in here somewhere if we're talking about celebrities!) level of fame because I can visit the local bookstore without being mobbed by fans, chased into oncoming traffic, and struck by a motor vehicle. It also means that I have to save up for a couple of weeks so I can even afford to buy a book, but, you know, maybe it's worth it.

The best perk about my kind of famous is that I can say whatever I want on my blog and no one is going to put a picture of me on the cover of some magazine and say that I'm cracked out (not that I'm anywhere near skinny enough to be accused of crack whoredom), cheating on my husband with an illegal immigrant (although that wouldn't be a huge scandal anyway since from time to time my husband is mistaken for one anyway, which SERIOUSLY ticks him off), or hiding a baby bump (actually this crap happens constantly and I'm sick of it, I tell you. Sick. Of. It!).

I know, none of you believe that I am like an F level celebrity, but I totally am.

Want proof?

This week I talked to a celebrity on the phone about her upcoming new sitcom.

And, I'm not talking about no reality star turned county fair announcer type celebrity either.

I'm talking Jenna Elfman people.

Jenna (effing) Elfman.

Jenna (I effing love Dharma) Elfman who is the star of Accidentally on Purpose which airs it's first episode this Monday (9/21) on CBS (more on this Monday).

But there's more.

I was also in on a call to the writer/director of the upcoming mommy blogger film, Motherhood starring Uma Thurman which is (if you're lucky) making it's way to a theater near you this fall.

Still don't believe?

Fine, you asked for it.

The biggest bit of evidence that proves that I am beyond a shadow of a doubt well on my way to super stardom is my membership in an exclusive group of amazingly gorgeous, unfairly intelligent, energetic, innovative, daring, blogging women known as Moxie Media.


That's right, I'm a Moxie Media girl (don't get all crazy and start stalking me, I'm NOT telling you my real name and Dumb Mom isn't it)!

What does being a Moxie Media girl mean (other than being surrounded by funky freshness at all times)?

Well, duh, it means plenty.

Plenty of crap I'm not telling you about.

But, what I will tell you is that starting next week, I am going to be participating in an event that will set the blogging world aflame.

An event designed to introduce all of you, to all of us (us being the on-our-way-to-A-list-celebritydom Moxie chicks).


Hosted by:
Better in Bulk
Mama’s Losin’ It
Mayhem & Moxie
Scary Mommy
& 7 Clown Circus

An event that will change your life and rock your world (okay, that's possibly taking it a bit far, but I've always wanted to say I was gonna rock some one's world, so yeah, consider your world rocked, but in a good way).

All right, I've said enough.

I seriously CAN NOT keep a secret.

It's a sickness, really.

Last thing on the subject, just to make sure you come back next week and see what all the fuss is about...

Now, how can you not come find out what that's all about?!

For more on Mona's travels take a gander at the people who actually put this whole thing together: Angie, Mama K. ,Scary Mommy, Better in Bulk, and Mayhem and Moxie!
