i’m newspaper famous!

15 02 2010

which is probably not that big of a surprise, since i’m fairly certain that’s how the majority of you got here today (thank you for coming!). but anyway, the very awesome justin ellis over at the PPH interviewed me on friday, and here i am in monday’s paper (print & online versions)! i am pleased to report that i didn’t make too big of an ass out of myself, and that he was able to pull out at least a couple of quotes that didn’t involve overt swearing or the word vagina. as a final testament to his awesomeness, justin decided to close with the voltron quote. the voltron quote! who said that newspapers were dead?

You rock so hard! My husband just showed me the article. Thanks for the mention, by the way! I just creamed a little bit.

you’re very welcome (and you rock right back)! i was bummed that he didn’t put direct links to you and money saving maine-iac in his article, but hopefully people are finding you from my blogroll.

That’s cool, I’m just honored that you even mentioned us! Although I kind of do wish you’d said vagina in there somewhere.

i did say vagina! he just edited out. i was actually quoting you (saying the the other coupon ladies act like they don’t have vaginas). i don’t think the PPH is ready for that anatomy lesson yet!

Haha! I love it. My mom called it a vaginko the other day and that made me super psyched.

your mom sounds amazing. vaginko! i may be forced to twitter about that right now. one time a couple of my friends were at a bar, and some eastern european dude asked them if they were “lezbig”. almost as good, but i’m pretty sure your mom wins this one.

I’m fairly certain that’s the only time I’ve mentioned Voltron in the column, let alone that someone said it to me in an interview. Nice.

thank you! much credit due to justin ellis, the guy who wrote the story. every time there’s an article in the paper that i like, it’s always him. it’s funny, so many people think i’m bess marvin- i wonder if finding out my real name was a surprise? 🙂

Hey! I found your blog through facebook.
Looks sharp! Very sharp indeed.
Hope all is well with you. 🙂

@bessmarvin – Your name? It’s totally Nancy Drew!

i wish my name was bess marvin! no, i’m just another crazy nancy drew fan. my real name is allie (alexandra if you want to be fancy about it). thanks for the awesome compliment! i’m glad you found me. 🙂

I had to google the name – is it Nancy Drew’s sidekick?
