my apologies

Yes, I am still technically on a blogging break. But I have to go to the dentist this morning, and this has me feeling nauseous and unable to accomplish the things I should be accomplishing anyway. And since I was already in a state of overwhelming queasiness, I figured I might as well just wallow in it.

So, I now feel the need to apologize for subjecting you to this...my awful voice, my fifty-three chins, my constant looking at the ceiling because I don't want to look at myself, my lack of anything of substance to talk about, etc.

BUT...you all now owe me big!!! Because Nymeth made a deal with me...if I did a vlog, she would do a vlog. Hahahaha...she was counting on my wussyness to save her. And well, normally it would, but my odontophobia has me behaving irrationally this morning.

Ana, I'm sorry...but I so want to hear your voice and see that beautiful face of yours. Please, please, please try to not stay mad at me for too long. Please.



On a side note, as horrendous as this video is, I am so freakin' proud of myself for figuring out how to do it all on my own.

Edited: Okay, well I was really proud of myself, until I published this and saw that half my face is cut off. ;)

ZOMG, Debi I'm so excited!!! Except when I hit play, it says it's a private video. Should I e-mail you for an invite?

Eva said...

It's working now! Your voice is so cute! And I love those bookshelves in the background. :D

Yay-I'm so glad you did this! Now I can put your voice and face together with the e-mails. :)

(And you do NOT have more than one chin. And your glasses are stylin'!)

Suey said...

This is great! Seriously, don't be afraid to do more.

Amanda said...

Yay!!!!!! I'm so happy to see this. You did really well, and I just double-clicked the video to see the full thing on youtube, so don't worry about being cut off. :D

I love hearing your voice, and you are so cute! I agree with Eva - you don't have more than 1 chin!!

Jean said...

Yo, Debi! If I watch you on YouTube, your face is fine. It's only on your blog that you're cut off. I got you in all your glory as in the glorious beauty that you are. Since I've met you, I can attest that you're beautiful in real life, too. Also very brave. I'm already cringing at the thought of the videos of me that might be posted in a bit over a month.

Debi! This is awesome! Good for you for having the balls to do a vlog (which I, as of right now, do not)! lol.

And you look adorable, and I <3 your voice, and you're awesome! :)

Care said...

LOVE IT! This is wonderful!!!!

DesLily said...

LOL.. you are too funny!... and yep your face isn't cut off on youtube.. you needed to "edit" before putting it on your blog and choose the smallest size and they use that url.. but it works! Too cool ! Everyone seems to be able to upload in short amount of times but me! I know it's my camera (I don't have a camera on my computer) but oh well.. good excuse not to submit everyone to whatever else I come up with LOL..

I knew your voice but now the live shot is way better than a still picture!!! Cant wait to see and hear Ana now! lol

Care said...

oh, and bestest to you on your dentist visit...
:)

jupitersinclair said...

oh,but this is GREAT! Not terrible ;)

Amanda said...

YAY!! Lovely! And you should totally do more of those! I always think about doing a vlog when I have 100 different bookish things to talk about and really don't feel like sitting down and typing it all out and attaching pictures/etc.

Chris said...

:D :D :D I got to see my Debi again!!!! Oh thank you so much for doing this Debi!! I've been missing you so much and it was so good to see your face and hear your voice again. And look at your library! It looks so good. Ok...I'm realizing, I'm going kind of overkill with the exclamation points here, aren't I? Sorry! Good luck at the dentist Debi. Can't wait to see what Ana has to say in return ;)

Chris said...

Love your bookshelves! You're next one will have to be a tour of your shelves.

Nymeth said...

See, even if I wanted to hate you, you make it absolutely impossible >:(

I LOVE your glasses, Debi. And you, even if you got me into this situation :P

Trish said...

GRRRRRRRRR. Can't watch video at work (all blocked). :( I've been on a bit of a blogging break, too, but now I can't wait to get on the comp when I get home.

Good luck at the dentist (and I'll be back!!!!). Eeeeeeeeeee.

Kailana said...

Okay, so this was really fun! Glad you were brave enough to do one. :)

Shanra said...

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! You are so adorable!

I feel kind of bad because I seen to say that about everyone's vlogs the first time, but it's true all the same. (Just because I have word-fail doesn't mean I can't mean them.)

I don't care if you have 'nothing of substance' to talk about, I got to see a moving picture of you and hear your voice and that is already awesome! 'Substance' would just have been neat icing on the cake. And, judging from the comments, I'm not alone in that belief. ^-~ You look and sound as wonderful as you always do in text. If that makes sense. It should half make sense at least. 'tis just, I know first-time vlogs are frightening, just a little embarrassing and incredibly awkward, but you still just have this air of sweetness about you. ^-^

(And that looking at yourself thing? That's so why I prefer my camera to the webcam, even if the latter is easier and more often used.)

*huggles* I hope the dentist visit went well, hun! *hates them herself too*

Grad said...

Well, now I feel as though I've really met you! Bravissimo, Debi. It should not be your last vlog (which heretofore I never knew existed! - and I couldn't do one even if my hair was on fire.)

Thoughts of Joy said...

I loved this!!! And, how delightful to hear your voice! :)

BTW - I was wondering about your library. So how are you redoing it? I love those shelves in the background.

Melody said...

Urgh! I can't catch your video at work!! Will have to view it at home! Still, I'm excited that you did a vlog!! Go, Debi! :D

Trish said...

Eeeeeee! I'm back with a big huge freakin' smile on my face. Seriously my face hurts my smile is so big. :) To great to see you and hear you!

You know, I never feel like I have anything bookish to say--sometimes I want to make a vlog that just has me saying "read-a-thon, read-a-thon, read-a-thon" the end, but who would watch that (besides you, of course).

Lovely! Still smiling.

Gavin said...

Yippie! You are so cute and I love your beautiful voice. Thanks so much Debi, let's hope Nymeth keeps her half of the bargin!

Stephanie said...

How very cool!! Glad to see you! Of course, I'll never do one myself, but I commend you for having the guts to do it!

joanna said...

Yay, you did it! And you looked great! Well, the half of you we could see... :-) I would have done much worse, wouldn't even know where to start doing one, so WAY To GO!! :-)

Louise said...

Sheesh. There is definitely something wrong with my computer, I can only see and empty box where your video should be. Grrr. On my own site a lot of things come up looking like that as well: Empty boxes. I don't know whats wrong and I want to see you too :o(

Memory said...

I think it turned out great! I love that we can see your library in the background, too. Great set choice!

debnance said...

Good for you! Vlog on, girl!

Louise said...

I got to see it! Yahoo. Loved it. I don't speak English, so luckily I don't feel any pressure to make a vlog ;o) ;o)

Megan said...

Jeez, here I go and disappear from the blogosphere for the week to make it easier for you to disappear from it for a little, too (yeah, we'll say that's why I did it...LOL!), and here you are making vlogs and stuff. Seriously, though, you're so adorable, if a little evil. But I appreciate your...evilness (is evilness a word??) because now I get to see both you *and* Ana! It's so very cool to be able to put a face and voice to both of you! =D

Oh, you are cute and funny and adorable and now I know why Chris misses you, because I think if we ever met, I would give you a hug too! lol I laughed and laughed when you said you had nothing to say, but told Ana it was her turn. Who says book people aren't competitive as well as caring?? I love it! And your library is awesome too, your shelves look way better organized than mine! less messy too :-D Well done, Debi!
