It's Passover tonight in our Cashew house, so I'm just going to post this now. I'm running on less than 4 hours of sleep, thank you insomnia, and I have a feeling I am going to crash and burn once I get a belly full of Brisket and Kugel. www.lunzygras.com should be up and running for most of you, but until then blogger tells me I may still at blogspot.
April 9th is my birthday and the official start of Lunzygras '09! What? You've never heard of Lunzygras? You've been missing out. But let's go back in time a bit...
"Lunzy" has been a nickname of mine since my first real job after college, shorten version of my maiden name (original, no?) Pre-children, my birthday was a BIG DEAL. When I didn't have BigBoy stealing my birthday thunder. And its celebration period lasted a LONG time, usually the entire month of April. We started to call it Lunzygras at one of my jobs and the name stuck. What can I say? A reason to drink and play for a month? Sign us up! We were all a bunch of drunks with too much media trade.
I began to think about my blog and my whole "online identity." Mountain Mania, the name itself, was focusing on the craziness that is my life, the chaos, the disorder. Yes it IS what my normal is, but it's not what I want my normal to be. I am happy about the direction my life is going, that we finally have some balance. Yes, my house is a disaster zone and I can't remember one thing to the next, but what matters the most is our family. And my family rocks! Things are good. Life is good. My blog should focus on the good -- celebrating the good things that are in my life everyday. My year round Lunzygras.
The Marketing/PR Chick in me wasn't happy with the whole Brand Identity Package though. I have been known to buy a product because it came in a cool nifty box. I decided to retire SassyAztec, make things are little more seamless, and start using "Lunzy" for all things on-line like twitter and blog comments. Since I only have 7 readers, its easier to make all these changes now rather than later when I'm all famous and a professional blogger raking in the bulk of our family income. Happy Birthday to me! I'm official now; with my very own domain name. Aren't you impressed?
My sis and her man are visiting this weekend to join us for Lunzygras (and Easter), so I may not be around much til next week. Hope you all enjoy your Passover/Easter with loved ones and don't eat too many Peeps!
p.s. This is your official notice: You are my Guinea pigs. I'll be trying out different things here from time to time-- don't get nervous if things get a little tweaked, things will eventually look normal again.
