Ever-so-slightly famous...twice on the same day!

Gosh, it's drought and flood around here.... Today there are TWO different articles in three different regions covered by the Melbourne Times Weekly network of local papers.

This one (YOU CAN READ IT HERE) is an edited version of my words. It's in the City/Yarra Melbourne Times.


Bayside and Eastern suburbs will get this one (YOU CAN READ IT HERE), which is what the lovely journalist, Luna Soo, wrote after we chatted on the phone for a while.



*****

Conversation of note, on the subject.


Wee Girl: Why are they putting you in the paper?

Nikki: I don't know....perhaps they thought someone might be interested...?

Wee Girl: (Laughs incredulously)........

Please tell the Wee Girl that the giraffe wheatie maker lady also thinks her mother is Fabulously Famous - and not only that - DESERVEDLY so!

Oi, Wee Girl - you have an Awesome Mum - watch it or she'll be too cool to play with you!

yep - nothin' like some positive feedback from a kid! im sure she's scrounged 20 copies of the articles, has cut them out very carefully and is secretly handing them out to the kids at school, as well as squirrelling away a copy just for her special scrapbook.

Rotten blurry kids always know exactly how to take you out at the knees, don't they?

Alison said...

Only good can come of this. All publicity is good publicity and the articles read very well.
