A Little Peep-Out on "The Talk"

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE:

It's pretty sad when a picture of someone else's TV screen is a 100 times clearer than watching it live on your own.  From now on, I'm going to have Jen take handheld video of all my favorite shows instead of TiVo-ing them.

UPDATE:

Yes, I am the only person in the world who still has a rear-projection
TV with some sort of mosquito net covering the front of it.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



I hesitate to post this, lest I look like a total loser if it doesn't happen, but I'm supposed to maybe be getting a very teensy-weensy, blink-and-you'll-miss-it, shout-out-is-way-too-strong-of-a-word mention on The Talk today.

Every Friday, they do a little follow ditty for mommy bloggers.  And this month being Autism Awareness Month, my understanding is that they are featuring autism mommy bloggers.  For those of you who don't know, Holly Robinson Peete is one of the co-hosts, so I think she's had more than a little to do with the autism focus this month.  Apparently, every Friday during the month of April they will be doing special autism-related features on the show.

HRP and I are pretty tight tweeps...and by "tweeps" I mean that I follow her on Twitter but she doesn't follow me.  That's what it means, right?  One day out in Twitterland, I saw her asking to be pointed to autism blogs, so I shouted myself out.  Yeah, I'm self-serving like that.  I also copied in as many of my bloggy friends url's as I could before she moved on.  I swear.  Really.  Go check the tapes.  I have reason to believe that other of my buddies will be featured as well, so stay tuned.

If past Friday Follows are any indication, the mention will be about 3 nanoseconds long and come as they throw to commercial.  So don't get up and start heading for the kitchen to refill your wineglass (hey, the show's on after noon) when you think an interview is winding down because you'll miss it.

Tune in to CBS at 1:00pm PT/CT and 2:00pm ET along with me and see what shakes.  If by chance I am mentioned and I get some Talk-watchers visiting here for the first time, here are some popular and representative posts to check out.

We like to laugh around here.  Hope you do too.

  8. YAY for you! I'll see if I can catch it!

  9. I'll probably be waaaaay too busy to catch it. I'll have Holly's people talk to my people about getting a transcript or something. What? I don't have people? Ugh. I guess I'll postpone my nap for a few to watch my archnemesis skyrocket to fame and fortune. Ugh.

  19. I remember that day and know for a fact you DID give us all props to HRP. I can vouche, or vouge, whatever the word is, for you.

    Congrats Lynn!!! That is awesome! You are very deserving. As usual, since I get the email newsletter of your blog, I am a day late to actually see it live on TV. Stupid, stupid...

  20. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO WATCHED!!! It was pretty exciting! @Noonie: No call from the big O yet :(

    @This Little Piggy: The SNL spoof was the first I'd heard of the show as well. Shhh don't tell.

    @no way: Thanks for the heads up...it's actually still there at 7:40pm...maybe if I'm lucky it will be there all weekend! Pics...yes!

  21. PS-You are NOT the only person with a rear-projection tv! However, I bet you didn't get yours via castoff from the people you bought the house from. Just call us the high rollers!

    Yaaaaaayyyy Lynn!

  22. Hey-that is freakin fantstic! Good for you! :) Maybe you ought to ummm celebrate and perhaps look at different t.v.'s? Hey-just a suggestion..

  23. Your TV is pathetic. You are lying about being happy to share your moment in the sun. And your mother dresses you funny.

    I think that about covers it.
