who knew i could be such a whore?

now that Rock-n-Romp is coming up, AND expanding to baltimore, i am furiously searching out opportunities for press. so i've been hounding a friend i know at the washington city paper for the appropriate contacts and their emails, and sending out shameless messages asking for some coverage. i know it seems desperate, but i don't know what else to do! journalists aren't exactly knocking on my door, and i know that RnR would make a good story. so i beg. it's not so hard, really.

i'm not exactly sure why i think a piece in the WCP would be good for RnR, especially since it's become so popular mostly on its own. the washington post weekend section mention definitely brought in a new crowd, but most of them stopped coming after they figured out that RnR was not going to be anything like a raffi concert. heh. i guess i'm assuming that the majority of parents who read the WCP are like me -- young(ish) hipster-types who like indie music and want to expose their kids to good live music that doesn't suck. oh god, please forgive me for calling myself a "hipster"--i couldn't think of anything else! anyway, i want to meet these parents! they are few and far between in my suburban 'hood, and it would be cool to find someone who lives close by that we can playdate with. yeah, i know these folks are out there, they just haven't heard of RnR yet. they need to be educated!

also on the RnR promotional front, we've got t-shirts coming! it's kind of sad how excited i am about these t-shirts, but I AM. i can't wait to wear one! and then there will be the obnoxious flyering i'm gonna do when we make flyers. ooh, and stickers! yeah, DC and baltimore, watch out. Rock-n-Romp is gonna be IN YOUR FACE.

Oooh, hurray for T-shirts!

If I didn't tell you before, I'll tell you now: I think RnR is a brilliant idea.

why do you say it's "sad" that you're excited for the t-shirts? i don't think it's sad. i think it's kinda cool.

well, i say "sad" because it feels like i've got nothing else interesting going on in my life, so i'm probably going a little overboard on the excitement over the t-shirts. but you are right. it is cool.

you're always getting down on your life and saying you got nothing going on. you have plenty going on, and you're raising two kids, and you're a super nice lady, and you have a nice home, and friends, and lots of stuff to do. you may think you have nothing interesting in your life, but i don't think so!!! i prolly couldn't raise two kids! stop being so down on yerself.
