Jesus and CNN

I get a lot of really really incredible and moving letters from you guys – I really wish I could respond to more of them and I know that sounds totally cheezy, and I HATE it when people say crap like that, but it’s kind of overwhelming trying to follow up and give everybody the attention they deserve. That said, I do read absolutely everything and I feel really honored and privileged and teary-faced to be let into your lives in that small way.

Last week “News To Me” on CNN Headline News reran the piece they did on me last year and I got a new wave of letters from amazing people.
I forwarded one of them on to an associate producer for the show to say thanks and they put up a blog about it!

In other news, my mother is very glad to see that Jesus has made it into my top friends on MySpace.
Mom: Joy! Your brother told me that Jesus is your friend again!
Me: What? Oh. Yeah, I rearranged my page a little…
Mom: Joy, I am SO GLAD. He IS your friend, you know.
Me: I know, Ma.
Mom: Just CALL on him!!
Me: Ok.

Although… I just realized I have more myspace friends than Jesus does. What do you think that means?

Fat Rant on DVD

So I’ve been spending this week at the NAAFA convention here in LA.. and it’s been seriously awesome. Some people have expressed interest in owning DVD copies of my videos – so I figured I’d throw some together and open it up to the internet as well 🙂

If you’re interested:
The DVD will be $10 plus $2 S&H and have 20 minutes of Fat Ranting 🙂
— that’s the original Fat Rant,
— Fat Rant 2: Confessions of the Compulsive,
— Fat Rant 3: Staircase Wit, and
— Totally Awesome
all in a higher quality formatting for DVD.
Just leave a comment below and I’ll email you a paypal invoice!
