Alltop (Albeit in the Basement)

I don't know if you've noticed, but lately it's been impossible to leave a comment over at Mamarazzi. Not even if there's a peerlessly funny post about the veins on Christina Aguilera's breasts. Or a picture of some old weird guy flashing Catherine Zeta-Jones. Or a video about a mother who is still breastfeeding her eight-year-old daughter.

I mean, that last one--you'd expect a comment shitstorm to erupt, wouldn't you? We sure did. And yet it debuted to a resounding silence.

So we're working on getting things fixed. In the meantime, I figured I'd check our Mamarazzi email account. Who knows, there might have been hundreds of frantic emails all bemoaning the fact that they couldn't leave a comment about how a Mini-Me might be the help that Amy Winehouse so obviously needs.

After I talked our hundreds of fan off the ledge, I dug a little deeper. And guess who sent us an email?

Guy Kawasaki. Yes, the Guy Kawasaki. Mr. Apple Evangelism/entrepreneur/author/speaker himself.

He was sending us Alltop badges to post on our site.

Alltop, all the top stories

Why on earth was he doing that? We're not on Alltop. Alltop is for TMZ, Perez Hilton, Go Fug Yourself, Mamapop--sites like that.

So I checked it out. Guess what? We are. (You have to scroll way down to the bottom. Way down. But hey, we're there!)

Alltop, all the top stories

Congratulations Kristin, SarahO, and Susie Sunshine! We so totally rock!

Alltop, confirmation that we kick ass

And we have nowhere to go but up. Top of the world, Ma (marazzi)!

  2. I confess... I love your blog... and this past winter I had my ONE blue vein removed. (I understand the silence!)

    btw... congrats on Alltop!

  3. Congrats!!!

    Of course, I have no idea who this dude is, but I'm happy that you're happy.

  4. First, congratulations.
    Second, the breastfeeding breasts had me shocked into speechlessness. I couldn't comment, because if I did I might not have been able to stop, y' know?
    Third, the flasher, that bugged me because I could NOT place his face but now I think I recognize him from an Adam Sandler movie. I hate that when you can't recall and place a person.

  5. Wow how cool! And I have missed reading and leaving comments there almost as much as I would miss the whole site if something happened to it! I hope it gets fixed soon!

  6. Likewise, I have no idea who this guy is, but the fact you're happy -- and didn't have to buy something at Target with which to dress up -- is good enough for me.
