She’s baaaa-aaack! And snobbier than ever!
Yes, I have returned from my sabbatical.
Yes, I have much to say.
(Click here for more!)
Yes, I am dying to discuss everything from the Obamas in Europa to random TJ Holmes photo updates (with Marliee, ya’ll! I hope she knows how to make peach cobbler, because I got a cobbler so good I still have restraining orders out against my exes. But I digress.)
Yes, I’m going to announce some changes to the site and some of the folks you read over the break may be writing once-a-month features, but this will still largely be a Snob production. For the pouters, look at it this way — more time to write entries for the Secret Council of American Negroes.
Yes (but on the hush, hush), a Democratic Party insider might be joining the blog as a regular commentator to give us the real deal on what’s going on in political land. Very excited! Now, if I could just get a journalist to be my mole? … C’mon CNN’s Chris Lawrence. I make a mean peach cobbler. Tamron! I know you wanna talk to me about what’s going down in the newsroom! And Christina Brown! And Alison Stewart And my Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup/Prince of West Memphis, TJ Holmes! Does Rick Sanchez talk like Ron Burgundy all the time? I needs to know these things.
Yes, the Harvard/New York/Washington, D.C. trip is still happening. Apr. 18-19. Yes, I will let you all know th wher’s and whens.
And yes, I will be in New York with Dorothy trying to do the damn thing with this TV pilot that was Dorothy’s brain child that I became the inadvertent midwife, then second mommy to. And yes the show is awesome and full of a diverse cast and yes, it’s mostly black people and it’s a serious familial vs religion vs showbiz drama set in the 1950s and 60s. And yes, IT WILL BE THE SHIZZ if we get a break and get our little footsies in the door. So cross your fingers. More on the TV show later.
Yes, I will tie up the loose ends. That means first finishing the “Cute Little Black Girls Are Everywhere, Stupid” package. I’ve already finished the slide show, but I still need to mail out the permission slips to those who submitted photos by the deadline.
This also means picking the winning picture of the Teege for his Wikipedia page and FINALLY announcing the winners of 2008’s Ed Bradly Award for Journalistic Hotness. Unlike last time where I did one long post, I’m going to break up the winners and do mini profiles.
Yes, I will be such a stan and write about Michelle’s clothes.
I think that’s all for tonight. Thank you to all the die hards who stuck it out. You’re awesome.
(And thank you for the donations! I’m getting ever closer to the make or break stage and I’m two steps from packing up the laptop and moving this operation to D.C. if the trip goes well despite the whole … I’m like, totally impoverished and shizz.)
