It's been a crazy Monday.
It began with the regular start-of-the-week chaos:
- Following up what I didn't finish last week,
- Double checking what I'm supposed to finish this week (a tax story, a couple of book chapters and a Crazy Woman Driver column),
- Writing a blog post, and
- Slogging through out-of-control email boxes (yes, plural).
But on top of that, today I also had a doctor's appointment and have been working to schedule a physician's visit for my mother (either we're both sickly or hypochondriacs!).
So I'm taking the rest of the afternoon off!
OK, not off exactly.
I'm going to be futzing with my webcam. I need to make sure the built-in microphone works and, more importantly, figure out how to get a small photo of Catherine Zeta-Jones (Hey! We're both brunettes!) pasted to the camera lens. I'm only half kidding.
Why the girlie concern about appearance? I'll be live on the Internet tonight (my time) talking with with Seth David, founder of Nerd Enterprises, Inc.
Seth provides financial accounting information and training to small businesses and he's got this wild idea that he can pull something useful out of an hour's online video chat with me.
Hey, if he's crazy and nerdy enough to believe that, who am I to argue!?
If you have an hour this late afternoon/evening -- we (or Seth and my Mrs. Michael Douglass photo if I can pull lit off!) go live at at 5 p.m. Pacific, 6 p.m. Mountain, 7 p.m. Central and 8 p.m. Eastern times.
Now I'm off to give myself a mini-facial and take a nap in case I, and not my CZ-J avatar, must appear on camera!
UPDATE: If you missed us live, the video is now posted. Audio alert: The sound begins as soon as you click on, so adjust your volume accordingly.
