Truth be told: The Bloggess and Le Clown are not the same person.
Admittedly, up to a few weeks ago, I didn’t know who The Bloggess was. Say it: Le Clown, have you been living under a rock? Perhaps, but it’s a mighty, beautiful rock. Admittedly, up to a few hours ago, I didn’t know The Bloggess was not Jenny Lawson’s birth given-name. As I said: it is a big and mighty rock, and comes heated with a view on the park. Well… The Bloggess will send a tweet to give a push to Bloggers for Movember.
Mary is a fairy godmother, and Jenny’s assistant (I suggested to Mary she should give up the personal assistant nomenclature and run solely with fairy godmother). Mary made the tweet possible. Our email conversation went like this:
Le Clown: Jenny, you watch clown porn, and I blog under a clown pseudonym. It’s a match made in blogheaven. Would you give us a hand with Bloggers for Movember?
Mary, Fairy Godmother (answering for Jenny): Can you tell me exactly what you are interested in and I’ll try to see if we have anything available?
Le Clown: I’m not expecting Jenny to endorse anything. But we’ll accept a lock of her hair.
Mary, Fairy Godmother: You are awesome and I adore you even though you are a clown. Jenny can send out a blurb on Twitter from her @thegoodbloggess account.
Le Clown: I’ll let you in on a little something… I’m not really a clown… I’m just a French Canadian who has too much of a poor vocabulary to find a better moniker. We humbly accept Jenny’s tweet. Want to go for ice cream?
And this is when it happened… Mary praised Le Clown:
Le Clown: I might pull a Mr. Brainwash and quote you everywhere I go to promote myself.
Mary, Fairy Godmother: What are Fairy Godmothers for if not to make wishes come true.
Amen to that, Mary, Fairy Godmother. A free tweet from The Bloggess, and accolades from a fairy godmother. It’s just like Christmas… without the Xanax and bankruptcy.
