So I'm not even sure how Lady Estrogen suddenly showed up in my Twitter stream - so NOT your mommy blogger, Stephanie unveils many an incredibly humourous recollection of her sometimes horn doggish past. I forget she even has any kids, let alone twins, or a husband until she mentions them and it still surprises me every time. She's done some really awesome work including four children's books (shut.up.) and she recently produced an amazing video - Hangover Square that is based on her own story, only on another time continuum - An Alternate Ending. This horny chick is really going places! From Pre-School Passion to current date, she is so full of estrogen, I have to ask her if I can borrow some - or start hanging out with her so it can wear off!
(I know my husband sure would appreciate about 1/10 of that!)
Here she is....Lady E!
1. How long have you been blogging?
This will be my third year. I started some time early 2010, but I didn't know I was meant to keep track. I can't even just check on my earliest post date, because my OCD had me farting around and changing some orders and dates. Yes, I can get like that.
2. What piece of advice can you give to unseasoned bloggers?
Whatever time you've allotted to dedicate towards your blog, triple it.
Also, it's super exciting to get started, but try to pace yourself. Start by posting a few times a week, not every day. After a few months, you'll get to know how much you can handle, because it's important to remain consistent with some semblance of a publishing schedule. It helps both you and your readers.
3. When is your favorite time of the day and why?
The hours between 9 o'clock and 11 o'clock at night. It's my "me" time. It's when I get to be alone with my thoughts, my creativity... and my night time dramas. I like to multitask in that sense -- I will write my latest blog post while perving over McSteamy. Phish-sha! Like I watch it for it's dramatic credibility; not even close. What the eff is going on? Who cares!
4. Where were you last Tuesday?
I have no friggin' clue. Ask me the lyrics to a song I haven't heard in 15 years, I can do it without skipping a syllable. Ask me what I had for breakfast? There could be problems. Baby brain is a permanent side effect. They don't tell you that.
5. Who or what brings you the most inspiration?
My stupidity, most definitely. Since I mostly write about the misadventures or sexual mishaps that have occurred in my life, it's my idiocy that is my constant source of blog fodder.
6. What is your favorite movie?
My favorite movie of all time would have to be Heathers, but it's not one I still watch. If I see a Heathers quote on twitter, I'll have to follow them and gain instant love for that person. I watch most Kevin Smith movies over and over again, and if Ghostbusters, Ferris Bueller or Indiana Jones is on television, I'll certainly have to watch it (even though I have them on DVD anyway).
7. Why should people read your blog?
Whoever said 'blog like no one's reading' is full of crap. I am very conscious about who is reading. I try to make my blog smutty, but not slutty. Bitchy, but not angry. Disillusioned, but not depressing. And amusing, but I ain't no mutherpluckin' comedy hour.
I hope that people come and enjoy because I try to find a nice place in the middle of all that - I enjoy myself there, so I hope like-minded people will as well.
8. What blog post of yours is your favorite?
There's so many that I enjoy for completely different levels of self embarrassment, so I'll embarrass someone else instead. This fictional script I wrote about myself talking with Jeremy London still makes me laugh. And his response is the cherry on top, most definitely. Jeremy's North American World Tour
9. Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?
Tough call. Anyone who knows me knows that my heart and passion is faithful to Melbourne... however, I was pretty fascinated with Paris. I'd love to go back there some day when I have a little more money and don't have to steal bread and cheese from the breakfast buffet and hide it in my backpack for my lunch.
10. This or that:
Gloves or Mittens?
Gloves. No doubt. I like to have control of my fingers.
Air Guitar or Lip Sync?
Wait. Can't I do both? I find it's only truly effective being an awesome arse if both are happening at the same time.
Cape or Mask?
MASK! If you've seen the Incredibles, you'll know there's a valuable lesson to be learned about capes. Let's just say that it can get messy.
Heads or Tails?
Heads. I'm usually a heads first kind of girl.
Pie in the Face or Slip on a Banana peel?
I'm going to have to say pie, because of two reasons.
1. You can lick off the pie. Have you SEEN a banana smeared on the floor? It looks like an elephant sneezed.
2. There's many more calories in a pie, which makes it much more fun.
(I was going to say 'more appeeeeling' but, well..) Sorry.
