I said I needed a distraction. As they come, this was a good one.
This has happened so fast from first contact to today it really is quite surreal, but it was an opportunity to do something I've wanted to do for the best part of twenty years.
I obviously lack any ability to keep my mouth shut, so if someone asks me to talk, anything could follow. When the Irish Times asked if I would talk, I talked.
Today, I have an article featured in the Irish Times. I can't even type that with a straight face.
Thanks everyone who helped it happen.
Oh and the fifteen chins you see, they are a trick of the light. Daylight.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to now go bribe or beat our doctor into getting us pregnant, while simultaneously praying I don't get disowned, mocked to within an inch of my life, or excommunicated.
Although, the last one I could probably cope with.
(EDIT: Oooh, 'Notes from the blog' are also mentioned.)
