Tootie's got nothin' on me.

Don't know what I'm talking about?

Here's Tootie. She hung out with Blaire.
Remember the rest of the girls in the house with Ms. Garrett ... Jo, Natalie and ...
my new best friend, Blaire.
Yeah ... she's pretty much gonna be my new best friend. 

You see, I'm going to be spending some time with this lady in a few weeks. She's coming over to my place, actually my church. She's speaking at our women's conference coming up in April.

I mean, I might be sharing a bread basket or chips and salsa with Blaire. Weird.

What will we talk about?

I looked to the source (The Facts of Life) for conversation tips.

Should we talk about when she hid "dope" in her lipstick case just to fit in?

Should we talk about the time the other girls in the house shoplifted?

Should we talk about the time she read Natalie's diary (shame, shame)?

I will bring up none of these things.

I am Jo in this minisode ... the faithful, loyal, and sometimes sarcastic friend. Whatever we talk about will go in the vault. Seriously. I'm not telling the deep, dark secrets she tells me. Remember ... BEST FRIENDS. I will not be Tootie in this minisode.


Side note: Here's another little lady I'll be with.

Email me if you live nearby and want tickets.

Here's more information for the locals. And, yes, that is my little voice you hear, trying desperately to sound Mid-western, with no hint of any Southern accent.

Don't hide your Southerness (is that a word?) Be proud of that Southern accent. Sounds great. I wish I were closer.

Wow, sounds like an awesome time! I have read a few articles on "Blair" and would love to hear her speak in person.

RachelQ said...

Jealous!!! I wish I lived closer.. I have her album BTW

Tammy said...

OMGosh, I was such a Facts of Life fan! Of course, I related to Jo more than Blair. My mom got to hear her speak a few years ago and loved it.

Lucky you!

I used to follow Lisa's webpage when they were traveling around the US for a year. It was very cool.

She called me and interviewed me when she was writing her book about homeschooling. I was so nervous, it was hard to talk! She interviewed a whole bunch of us and then compiled what we said into the book, so I wasn't named, but that's okay! She talked to me because I was someone who had health problems who homeschooled, plus I used satellite school at the time.

Anyhow, have a great time. I seldom get to go to those conferences, but when I did I really enjoyed them!

Lisa Welshel right? I have heard wonderful things about her mommying skills. Sounds like a cool church event!

Very good "mid-western" voice, lol. ;) You sounded very cool though, not that you don't ALWAYS sound cool, because you do! :)
