with Joy Nash and Sweet Machine.
And a cameraman from MTV.
Weird and awesome.
And after I squealed about hanging out with OMG JOY NASH!!!, we walked into a bar and found the lovely Kelly and Miranda, who also went OMG JOY NASH!!!, and then Joy introduced me, and it turned out they read the blog! I met fucking fans! Hi, Kelly and Miranda!
I realized on the way home that MTV dude never had me sign a release, so I have no idea if that means he has no intention of using the footage of me, or he just forgot. So I may or may not be on the teevee. If I am, you will see me acting TOTALLY NATURAL as I talk to Joy while staring over her shoulder at the camera and then try to angle myself so the guy can’t film my profile or back fat. Because I am all about accepting my body, yo.
And because I know this was your first question when you read the word “cameraman,” I wore my aqua Svoboda Shauna top (purchased very much on sale), a black Michael Kors matte jersey skirt (from TJ Maxx), Franco Sarto heels, and a big-ass paisley bag from Gap Outlet, which I chose because it fit the Franco Sarto heels, along with everything else I needed. I actually wore Nordstrom ballet flats for most of the night, but I brought the heels because I wanted to look TOTALLY NATURAL on camera.
I totally didn’t stand right in the street and redo all my make-up before the camera started rolling, either. Because this was about REALITY.
And the reality is, Joy Nash is just as fucking awesome in person as she is on the YouTube, and man, do I ever wish she lived in Chicago.
That is all.
