{August 24, 2012}   My Trip to NYC … or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Wear the Ketchup Costume

Remember my recent trip to NYC? The one where I attended a writing conference with my pal, Mel at According to Mags? The schedule was intense with breakfast sessions starting in the mornings at 8am (which may as well have been 4:30am) and continued activity the whole day that went straight through to the parties which wrapped up at 1am. Realize that both of those times ended with AM. We stayed pretty damned busy.

Except for the last day. The day where we had nothing to do. The day where we had nothing special planned. So we did something a little … unorthodox. And then decided to make it the theme of our brand-spanking-new, biweekly writing link-up.

Introducing …


Every once in a while, we all need to break out of the stuffy molds we have set ourselves in. Our day to day routines can quickly become mundane and we can easily lose ourselves in the monotony. Because who has time to be deliciously spontaneous … and delightfully unpredictable … and defiantly self-confident enough to just be a little silly?

That’s where the Ketchup With Us link-up comes in.

Check in with us on the 1st & 15th of each month. It’s just like pay day … except that nobody gets any money. It’ll be fun and easy …  because all of this stuff revolves around somebody wearing a ketchup costume. So how complicated can it be???

You KETCHUP with your friends.

You KETCHUP on your sleep.

So be sure to come KETCHUP With Us on September 1st!

E. Gad.
I’ll be there just because it’s so much fun watching the two of you take leave of your senses!

I’m gonna be second in line for a front row seat. Can’t wait to see what M2 has in store for us!

M2. Is that both of us? Like Duran Duran … or J-Lo? I like it! :)

Mel’s head bobs are amazing. I applaud her inability to sit still. She loves to move!

She is indeed a hummingbird. It explains the skinny.

Mel says:

Thanks, Delphin…I think. Not sure if your complimenting me or annoyed by me. :) But, thanks for watching!!

El Guapo says:

Ha! Not possible to be annoyed by you, young lady.

[…] can think of no better way to spread the word … or the ketchup …. about the offbeat writing link-up I co-host with Mel on the 1st and 15th of every month. Thanks to Viv and Alex for creating this […]

I’m gonna try to do this. For realsies.
