Feel Me Up Friday: When interviews go horribly wrong

If you thought I was @NewMedicine crazy before you should have seen me yesterday. EEK. Not only did Photo Finish Records (a division of uuhhh heeelllooo ATLANTIC RECORDS) put me in charge of the New Meds forum a couple months back, BUT, now I'm also in charge of the Facebook fan page and @NewMedsArmy Twitter. Um, hello! Talk about getting my daily fix! PFR knew just what I needed to ease the cold sweats and shaky hands. Now I HAVE to do things re: NM everyday. Whew...*pants uncontrollably*

So do me a solid dudes + dudettes: Like the Fbook page and give a follow. Need navigation? Sure...
~AND~
Follow @NewMedsArmy on the Twit

It's becoming more and more clear that my novel writing path has taken a turn for the worse (at least temporarily) (unless you're reading "future agent") (in which case, my ass is glued to the writing chair), but those four blooming buds of talent and hottness have awakened the old promoter/publicist in me that (again), I thought had died off. So, sorry to be REPETITIVE. So, sorry to be REPETITIVE. Whoopsi. 

Anywho.

Random Fact: I walked around with a sticker on my ass pretty much all day. I went to the store. Out to lunch. OUT. OUT. OUT. No one said an effing word.

Random Fact: I admit. I've watched Brady's interview (on my sidebar)...well...let's just say the computer finally said "YOU KNOW WTF HE'S GOING TO SAY! LEAVE ME THE EFF ALONE, WOMAN!" Because of this, and the whole anniversary thingy, I thought it'd be fitting to do the same thing with the hubs but something went terribly wrong during production...

**Disclaimer: The hubs is, in fact, a BR80 fan**

The winner of Brady's current read, John Irving's A Widow for One Year is: JUDE!  
I have your email and will be contacting you as soon as I get my New Meds fix :)

Until tomorrow, friends, have you ever walked around with TP or stickers or food in your teeth and not had a single person tell you?
Candyland. OUT.

I 'liked' New Medicine's page yesterday! Do I get a gold star? ;o)

Don't worry about the lack of writing thing. It happens to all of us. I went a solid four months without writing a thing due to work. Don't sweat it, it happens. xoxo

Shannon said...

You crack me up. I don't think I've had any stickers attached to my arse, but I did wear a shirt inside out for an entire morning. It wasn't until lunch and the Panera bread girl said something.

Jen Daiker said...

OMG am I your first commentor??? That like never happens!!! As I'm sure you already know I am definitely a fan of your FAN PAGE :) I figured it was you! How fun!!!

I hate when no one tells me about food in my teeth or a sticker on my bum! I would have told you!!

Jen Daiker said...

Of course... I spent too long typing so Jess and Shannon beat me... go figure :(

Creepy Query Girl said...

lol- I loved the hubs vid. Who was he supposed to say? (like I need to guess) I'll def. 'like' New Medecine! and that's awesome you've got so much fun stuff going on!

Renae said...

I hate it when things like that happen and no one says a word. I went through the entire day of school once with one earring on and I wear big earrings! Don't stress about the writing...everyone has those moments.

Anne said...

Candyland in PR... I can totally see it!

Heading to the FB page now.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Cool new job! You are sooo lucky! :D

LOL about the "future agent" part. She'll (he'll) forgive you.

Good luck on the walk this weekend. :D

Carolyn V. said...

I had toilet paper stuck to my foot once. But a friend finally told me, after I walked through the halls of my high school. Ack!

So cool that you are going to be a PR person. =)

Kelly said...

I am certain I have done something stupid like that. When I was in high school I worked as a cashier and forgot to wear a bra (I know, seriously it was stupid and I didn't realize until I saw a bra lying on my floor when I got home - I'm messy, too) and was wondering why all these old men were complimenting me all day.
Congrats on the NEw Meds responsibilities! I am a New MEds fan fan.
And I'm not writing now but hope to in a few weeks!

Matthew Rush said...

Done and done. And no. Not TP, but a sticker for new clothes? Yes.

Jared Larson said...

*raises hand* Big piece of food in teeth. Afterward, I felt like Yzma from The Emporer's New Groove. My wife got a kick out of it. Glad I can be someone's entertainment.

Hey, nothing is every wasted. Remember that. Except that I haven't heard from you in a while.

Oh, and you have finally broken me. I'll have to finally listen to a song by these bad boys. ";-)

aspiring_x said...

i am like compulsive about telling people when they're walking around with something embarassing going on. lipstick on your teeth? no fear! if i'm around, you'll know...

that said- once in jr. high, several buttons on my blouse came undone and i was walking around band class (i'm a geek i know!) with my training bra showing for about sixty kids to see. so! embarassed! blouse went into the trash as soon as i got home! i don't think i wore anything with buttons without a tshirt underneath for years!

and the hubs is hilarious! i'm sure he has a man-crush on brady and just doesn't want you to get jealous that he's swooping in on your guy! :)

have a good one!

Kelly Breakey said...

Brady is my favorite New Medicine member...Just saying. How come I never get interviewed like this? Whats up with that? After all the (fill in the blanks)...yadda, yadda, yadda, Oh wait, I refuse to be interviewed. Thats right. I am always being stalked by the Paparazzi.

But rock on with the publicity stuff, I think you would be an awesome New Medicine Publicist. Well, you could get us into all the cool parties.

Linda G. said...

LOL! You crack me up. This is a good thing. :)

LTM said...

that does it. If/when IT ever happens, Br80'd better look out b/c I'm stealing you as my publicist.

P.S. That NM lead singer is hot.

P.P.S. I took three mos. off this summer from writing. And look at me now. No worries~

Shannon O'Donnell said...

I visited your New Meds fan page and "liked" it last night, even though I have no idea what they sound like. That's Team Candyland loyalty, girl. Ha ha. I'm thrilled you were picked to be the one "in charge".

Have a great weekend!

Colene Murphy said...

Oh no! I hope you perk up on the writing side soon. Maybe a break is just overdue? But either way, congrats on all the NewMed. stuffs! I bet that's really fun!

Kelly Dexter said...

I walk around with something embarrassing going on somewhere more often than I care to admit. I much prefer the awkwardness of someone saying "Do you know that you have . . ." and me removing it over getting home and wondering what people might have been saying all day.

Don't currently have a FB or Twitter, but if the occasion ever arises, I will like and follow.

Nicole Zoltack said...

I don't think I've ever had stickers attached to my butt but if no one said anything, how the heck would I have known? Great, now I'm all paranoid. I would have told you, that's what friends are for!

Lenny Lee! said...

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

You know Candace, all the agents that are reading your blog realize that you are doing research for your next YA novel...about a teen who stalks Matt Brady...

Have fun on the walk this weekend. Thank you for participating in it. It is a worthy cause and I wish I was walking with you guys....

Talli Roland said...

I liked the NM page on FB and followed on Twitter! That's fab that you're running all that!

Yes, I once went through the London Underground (from Kings Cross to Tottenham Court Road, then to Notting Hill Gate), passing by THOUSANDS of people, and no-one told me I had a massive Southwestern Trains headrest cover velcroed to my back! AHHHHH!

Jhon Baker said...

besides walking around with my zipper down waiting for someone to tell me about it - never did - I only hate it when people get mad at you for telling them that something of theirs need attention lest further embarrassment ensue.
