The lead up & the low down

A lot of shiznit has been going on around here, so I thought it was high time I quit avoiding and spill it.

First off, it's my birthday tomorrow. Fuck yeah, muthafuckers!! Unlike some people that hate their birthdays, I quite enjoy it.

Yes. That.

In honor of my birthday, I am giving myself a gift, a gift of time. Time off.

This is also in conjunction with the fact that I started therapy sessions, finally. And guess what one of the first things she said to me was? "I'm exhausted just listening to all the things you are doing. You need a break."

Well... doctor's orders then.

The launch of the Michelle Rumball video for Hangover Square is on Wednesday, and will be up for the remainder of the week. It's a pretty big fucking deal to me, so I will want to give it as much exposure as I can. I hope EVERYONE who's ever even sniffed around my blog to please watch the video! Let's get the views over 1000. YAY! It is based on my relationship with Jim and the fictional alternative ending that I wrote a while back. I scripted, directed and even did a tiny bit of shooting. Double yay!

The following week (January 30th), I have some kick ass posts lined up from some of my dearest hoes. Please visit and enjoy. I will be around, but just chilling a bit.

When I return on February 6th, I will be reducing my posting schedule to twice a week - Mondays and Thursdays. I love this blog and love all of you that honor me every time you visit... but I love my sanity too, and it's about time I focus on that for a while. I have some fabulous ideas brewing for the site this year, it will just roll out less often.

Please bear with me while I go hunting for my marbles.

I'll be wearing camouflage. Preferably pink.

Love you lots,

Lady E


  1. I celebrated my birthday week this past week!! It's the only way to celebrate in my book. Hope you have a kick ass week.

  2. All birthday celebrations should last a week. If not the whole month. And I think it is great that you are taking some time off and changing your blog schedule. I've only been following a short time but I'm hooked and I would be sad if you had to stop completely to save your sanity at some point in the future. So slowing down now will insure that we've got your great blog for a long time to come. Happy Birthday!

  3. Happy Birthday week!!! Do your birthday dance for us.

  4. Hahahaha... Had to laugh at what the doctor said :))

    It's confirmed then, you do need a break! Based on the roommates story on your last post, it seemed like at least ten, fifteen years overdue, girlfriend!

    I can accept you posting only twice a week, as long as you promise to drop me a tweet or two in between, k? I need my daily dose of Estrogen!

  5. Glad you are takint more time for you. So important. Can't wait to share the video with everyone I know. ;)

  6. A very happy birthday to ya! :D

  7. Marbles are so overrated.

    And if everyone else is doing the birthday week thing, I might as well jump on that bandwagon.

    Lastly, I need to dig around in your archives. I appear to have missed a lot. And that's just not fucking good.

  8. I am in complete agreement with my dear sweet Sweaty! Take a break my dear . . . you have earned it. I honestly don't know how you do all that you do with two boys . . . it boggles the mind.

    Woo hoo to the birthday week shit! Perhaps it is high time for those drinks we keep mentioning. :)

  9. Happy Birthday! Take all the time you need, we'll be here when you get back!

  10. Happy Birthday week, lady! I believe in birthday month. It starts June 1st. My birthday is June 28th. Every day = a celebration of me. So I think a birthday week is actually quite minimal.

    You are smart to take a rest & take care of yourself. Your friends love you & we'll be following along no matter how often you post.


  11. Thanks, everyone!! This all means a lot to me :)

  12. First off, let me say to you, Happy Birthday for tomorrow. You deserve not just a whole week off, but a week off being served unlimited bevvy's and delicious decadent desserts topped off with wild, hot, over the top sex! Here's to you my dear! Love you lots xoxoxo c.

    PS: video = amazing. Now I understand what you were speaking of before, the writing and directing part. That's awesome. You must have already crossed many awesome things off your "bucket" list by now and I feel like I'm just starting to write one...lucky you... you are one talented, beautiful Lady E.

  13. Happy birthday week! :D I always celebrate my birthday week. I also celebrate my birthday as "half way to...". This past birthday, I turned halfway to 46.

    I hope your marbles aren't too far gone. Those suckers can roll.

  14. enjoy your well-earned rest and while you're down there looking for your marbles, could you keep a look out for my plot? And I'm not spelling that with a double tee ee in case it facilitates some dubious French double entendre...

  15. Happy birthday, Lady E! No better way to celebrate than ice cream. Take some time to yourself and you'll come back with a fresh new outlook. Staying sane is the most important thing. This blogging thing is exhausting, no? You know we'll all still be here.

  16. I hope that you enjoyed your b-day. Now, thanks to you, I'm going to get a DQ Oreo Blizzard before the week is out!

  17. @ThankQ

    Sweet! I do like the Oreo ones, but it's still a distant 3rd to the cookie dough or pumpkin pie Blizzard. yum.

  18. Hi! Please email me, I have a question for you! :)
