Today was a strange day. It involved what for want of a better term was a “working lunch”, although the “work” it involved was social media and I’m not a social media professional. I just play one on Twitter.
Social media guru-ing of the day: Angelina Jolie is not going to follow you on Twitter. Stop begging.
I was asked questions about #HomeHer10 and such like and, see, the problem with asking me questions is I will give answers. I will give answers like I’ve always known the answer and I’ve always known the answer better than you and there is no other possible answer. But I don’t know anything about social media except for what I’ve read in 140 character increments. I think I used the phrase “return on investment” a couple of times and that made me seem way smart.
So, since I don’t know anything about social media, and am hardly interested in being a consultant, I will provide answers basically for free just because you’ve given me the chance to sound like I know what I’m talking about. I love sounding like I know what I’m talking about. It also helps to call me awesome or funny. I eat that up.
After lunch wrapped up and I and my lunch companion went our separate ways I stopped by Emily’s office to have a letter notarized. Since I’m taking Adrian to Canada in, oh, two days, and I don’t want to try to convince a suspicious border guard that I am not kidnapping my own son, I had Emily draft a letter detailing the trip, her permissions for me to go to various places and also to change travel plans at my discretion and to set medical and well-being policy for Adrian while we’re away. You’d think there would be a lot of places to just download a form like this and fill in some blanks but there were very few online, and the best one I found was Canadian and required a Canadian address be entered in one of the parental slots, so that was basically useless. The Department of State website was completely unhelpful, which is what precipitated the drafting of a letter from scratch. Emily also put it on her legal letterhead to make it look badass.
So, yeah, I guess I got a bit ahead of myself….
Adrian and I are going to Canada on Sunday night. We’ll land in Toronto then head eastwards for a week. It’s just me and Adrian because I have one plane ticket and Adrian is going as a lap infant. That should be awesome. He’s a squirmy nightmare, so I’m hoping that the seat next to me is vacant so I can strap him in there with the CARES harness we have or else that redeye flight on Sunday is going to be miserable.

My dad called me the other day and said "how do you make money from Twitter"? I managed to give about a 10 minute answer, it was awesome. Who's gonna prove me wrong?
Not this guy.
I'm impressed. I'm not even sure I could use a full ten minutes to explain Twitter, much less a revenue model for it.
That was ten minutes? Wow, you type fast.
Good luck on your trip! A little brandy in the sippy cup will go a long way.
I don't really like brandy. More of a scotch guy. And I get looks when I use
a sippy cup.
When I took TJ up to NS in 2000, Hubbie just wrote a note saying that he was "allowing" me to go to Canada with our child… which I guess is a good thing.
We like to overprepare.
