This is one hell of a funny poster. I call the type of women that so many men are attracted to, “boys with breasts.” I prefer my women to have feminine and womanly signifiers: zaftig women. (Did you know that zaftig is Yiddish for juicy?) Call me crazy. When and if I ever decide to jump back into the dating pool, I will date proper womanly women with proper thighs, bosoms, and bottoms and not boys with breasts.

There are times when I’m pumped about a particular client. But they sort of still remain just that. A client. But now, we here at Abraham Harrison, working through crayon, have the opportunity to get others involved with our client while we participate as well. And it’s all for a great cause.
It’s call My ooVoo Day and I’m psyched.
ooVoo is an online video telecom service that allows six people to talk at once. It’s lightweight and easy to use.
But MyooVooDay will be like no other day. We’ve lined up 23 prominent blogger and commentators to host online video chats via ooVoo. You can talk with Bob Garfield of AdAge. Or Chris Thilk of Movie Marketing Madness. Now is Gone author Geoff Livingston will be there. Novelist and podcaster Scott Sigler. Karen Putz, a blogger and deaf mom of three. Irina Slutsky of GeekEntertainment.tv. Jack Myers of Jack Myer’s Media Village.
ooVoo will be primarily donating funds to the Frozen Pea Fund, which was formed after blogger Susan Reynolds revealed on Twitter that she had breast cancer and used a bag of frozen peas to alleviate the pain. Oh, she’ll be participating as well!
If you can participate, then please do so. It should be fun.
If you want to blog about it, then take a look at this.
I just received the below email in my Facebook Inbox because I am a member of the ooVoo Facebook Group. Well, I have been sitting on some cool news that I assume I can share now since it has been released into the wilderness. Lots of cool stuff: My ooVoo Day, a version of ooVoo for the Mac, and the ability to chat up some of the coolest new media, social media, new PR, new marketing, and rock star bloggers anywhere!

If you haven’t had a chance to try out ooVoo yet, there’s a great opportunity coming up in the week or so: My ooVoo Day With…You can download the software – including the MAC VERSION!!! – and sign up for a slot where you can talk to some other ooVooers in the blogosphere about a variety of topics at: http://www.myoovooday.com
If you don’t have a webcam yet, don’t worry – you can still participate on calls as an audio-only caller. You’ll still be able to see and hear the others and add your own voice to the mix. Just pick a good looking avatar to display. ;-)
That’s it. Get over to www.myoovooday.com to check out the details and do your thing.
Now back to your regularly scheduled email…
I met Lori Gottlieb years ago now and I am a passionate fan. There are even rumors that I will be mentioned in an upcoming Atlantic article, “Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough,” which will be coming out in the March issue available online this Friday.Forget about me me me for a minute — this is about Lori. Lori was just on NPR today and will be on the Today Show tomorrow. Here’s an excerpt from her email:
“I’ll also be interviewed about the piece on The Today Show this Friday, 2/8 (NBC, between 8 & 8:30 a.m..). And NPR ran my commentary today that speaks to some of the points in the Atlantic story. You can hear that at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=18751687.”
I think Lori is smashing and I am so happy to be a part of this article and this project. When the article comes online on Friday, I will reveal all of the awful details of my interview — what I said about love, marriage, etc. Egad! To quote Lori in her email:
“Thanks again for your great quotes and insight. Either we’re all really cynical, or we’re just depressingly reality-based, and true love, like religion, is indeed the opiate of the masses.”
