No, really… there is so much!! I love my life! Let me share with you…
First, proof in fact, you can keep secrets in Social!! I surprised #140ConfMTL last week by attending. Thanks so much to those that kept my secret and helping me accomplish the fact that I flew across the country and then drove to Montreal to pop in and surprise some of my bestest friends!! If you get a chance, go watch some of the videos….completely amazing!! Also, I finally saw Sam Fiorella speechless. No mean feat for any of you that know Sam!! Much thanks to Josepf & Mila for letting me crash!!
I then spent the rest of the week, looking for an apartment. Sadly, was quite unsuccessful!!
There’s two ways you could help…
- If anyone knows of any 3 bedrooms in Upper East/West side or East Village that is for rent, under 3k/month, pretty please send my way.
- If you know someone who would should be talking to find one – send me their deets.
The rest of my trip to New York, I am happy to report was so exciting and wonderful!!
I spent some time at my new gig. Now, wait, I am not leaving Sensei Marketing, Sam or Jeff. I have always done small consulting/contract work in addition to Sensei. This current job, is more than that though. Not only is it at an awesome company, with some brillz people but I am also, being very public about it.
They are launching @Chirpaloo and @SeeSawMe and have hired me as their Director of Social Engagement. I have been sending out some sneak peeks to people and y’all can go sign up for the beta. (Ok, pimping done) I hung out at my new office with them #TheLabNYC! Yup, #TheLabNYC is an open workspace & major collaboration space! If ur in NY come visit!!
Also, while there, I was able to meet the wonderful Rachel Yeomans. She, soo, kindly invited me to be a guest on her podcast. Yes, it is a fashion podcast and while we all know I am a Fashion Disaster, this particular podcast was about Coco Chanel and a book written about her. I, completely adore the story of Coco and was quite happy to chat with Rachel about her, the book and we even asked someone to create us a special Magic 8 ball using phrases from the Care Bears!! CareBear Stare!! Anywho, if you want to listen go here! Also, check out Rachel’s stellar fashion mag. You can read it online or purchase the actual real thing. I totally recommend getting the real deal, the artwork and stories are outstanding and it’s small, perfect to carry around!!
Now…. my bewbs. Well, it’s time for phase two! This week, I have 3 separate appointments with 3 different doctors. Yup, it’s time to make sure that Morte or any of his little friends don’t come back. That means, Chemo and radiation. My third appointment is with a genetic-type-doctor to make sure that I don’t carry any of the genes.
Today, I met with the most wonderful, bestest doctor. Dr. B was incredibly patient, thoughtful and quite delightful. We went over everything. The short version, on Friday, I go to have a post( a thingamajigy that’s an open port to give me drugs) put in. The post is so I don’t need to get an IV in every time I go to get my treatment. I have sucky, tiny veins and well, this is going to be less stress for me. I have asked for a sparkly purple one or mebbe they will have a pink one.
I will then start Chemo treatments next week. I get a treatment every 2 weeks. It’s possible my hairs will fall out(that’s ok, I have lots and lurve hats), I may get sick (I have a few extra pounds I would like to shed, anyways) and I’m going to be tired. DUH, I’m already tired and have accepted NapTime as part of my day.
I can hear all of you thinking how is this going to affect #WestmovesEast and the great NY relocate. It’s not. I have discussed with Dr. B and she is perfectly fine with me moving and anticipates no problems at all or that I won’t be able to make the trip. For the next few weeks, we will be packing, dumping or selling all of our belongings. More on the PLAN later.
