Life has been pretty busy lately, and its gonna get even more hectic, so try to hang tight for the next couple of weeks. In case I disappear momentarily- I beg you- DON'T LEAVE ME! You're the only friends I got.
Now onto some breaking news-
Not too long ago, I made a vlog explaining what PKU is all about. Shortly after, I submited my video to the "rare disease day" organization. Seeing all the other (serious and matter of factly) videos submitted made me feel like the oddball. Still, I thought
Within a few days, my video quickly climbed up the rare disease channel "charts" and became number one! Suddenly, people started pasting my video everywhere. Its on so many blogger, facebook, myspace and other social networks that I cant even track it anymore. It was also sent out on several PKU email listervs and shared on a PKU fundraising for awareness site. The other day, a neurocisentist told me that he's incorporated my video into his graduates class. I have even found my goofy talking head on encyclopedia.com!
Not to mention (although I am), that MY video is the #25 most discussed this month (um...that would be in the "news and politics" section of the french branch of youtube. But still.)
I know all of this because I've been cyber stalking myself.
People often say that they "like comments." Thats not true. I know it because I say it too. I dont like comments. I like compliments. Thats what "comments" are all about. They are expressions of love to a socially deprived cybergeek. That's why I went on a hunt to gather as many as I could find. Let me toot my own horn here and tell you that I cannot keep up with the kudos and props.
Cuz Im all that. and a bag of chips.
Not too long ago, Isaac, Katy and I made our five hour trip to see the genetecist in his new location. Since he moved, he had a new metabolic dietician and we were looking forward to meeting her. When the door opened, I was greeted by
"I know YOU! You're that mom in the PKU video! Wooow! You're like a celebrity!"
*let me take a second or two to gloat in silence*
Fame and fortune, here we come!
I can see it now...
ps- leave compliments, ahem- comments...
