And now someone has finally cleared up what the Toyota kerfuffle was about. Obviously I’m lazy because I couldn’t be bothered googling last week.

But I *am* bad ass. I know because badassery is determined by the websites I read, and I read websites specifically designed for and by badasses. Ergo, I am badass. That’s how it works.

Honestly, Anna, I like you, but sometimes you aren’t very erudite.

The OMGOUTRAGE and obsession over “bad PR” is probably the funniest part of the mom blogosphere. I write entertainment blogs and get horrible press releases and pitches all the time. If I don’t want to cover something, then I don’t do it. 98% of the time I don’t. Anyone who has even a moderately successful blog will get pitched. That’s just how it goes. I don’t bother responding to the publicist with some indignant rant. I just delete it and move on.

I’ve found myself being called a mommyblogger quite a bit lately. I’m confuzzled about this, really, as I’ve never identified myself as anything of the sort.

At any rate, I want to be known as a ‘badass fanciful melange’ blogger.
