Will Pimp for Food (and Celebrity Contact)
I've just received a Quicktime video of my visit to The New Adventures of Old Christine set and I have to admit, I am too much of a pussy to post it. I know that everyone hates seeing herself on camera but seriously? This is bad. You're better off watching Yvonne's.
What I meant to say is...
I just received this video of my visit to the set of Old Christine and I just can't believe how glowing and beautiful I look and how intelligent I sound every time I open my mouth. Who says I'm only funny on paper? I quite literally steal the spotlight away from all the actors - the spotlight guy just kept turning towards me with the hopes of catching my attention if only for a fleeting moment. The cast was pissed about it too; good thing he's Union.
And so, you can understand that I feel it would be irresponsible of me to post any sort of video that deflects attention away from the true stars - the talented cast of the show (which you can catch Monday at 8 on CBS, and subsequent Mondays at 8:30. Unless you'd rather watch Deal or No Deal, in which the major dramatic question revolves around the riveting premise: Pick a number. Nope, guess again. Nope, guess again... )
But here's what's really cool:
I just learned that Julia Louis-Dreyfus, along with the show's creator, Kari Lizer will be doing a live press conference with Lisa Stone of BlogHer Monday night at 9 featuring your questions. So...think of a question. Ask it here. Then watch as famous people answer that very question on BlogHer.org or on CBS.com.
You can ask them anything besides "do you know what a blog is?" I can tell you right off the bat it's a dead-end street.
Okay, now that you know exactly what kind of solicitation will get me to write about a product/brand/sitcom/whatever, let me tell you what won't:
Hello Liz,Because this sort of email will lead me to forward it to Kristen and ask her, really? Where exactly have I discussed topics relating to food and family? I just can't think of any besides the one where I'm annoyed because I can't eat sushi. Is it possible that it's just...a form letter? No! Say it isn't so!
I’ve enjoyed reading your blog and I noticed that you often discuss topics relating to food and family, so I thought you and your readers might be interested in learning more about the opportunity to enter the [very famous brand name] Bake-Off Contest...
Do they have a “best recipe using breast milk category?” Because that might be something worth blogging.And that is why she has like 600 million readers a day.
Good thing she didn't mention placenta recipes. I might have actually run with that one.
