Where in the world is Cardiogirl?

Heyyyy. Remember me?

I have a knock-knock joke for you.

I’m the chick with the ponytail who wears bitchin’ Converse.


Forgive me my peeps, for I have sinned. It’s been over four months since I last set foot over here. But I have exciting news.

I’m writing a book, gingha (for real this time)

I’m writing a memoir with another writer! It’s her story and I have to say it’s a solid read, jack. We have 250 pages/65,000 words written and are finishing the last chapters.

So that’s what I’ve been doing for the last four months or so. Plus it’s summer vacation and it feels like I have kids crawling out of the woodwork.

Anyway, I wanted to jump back on the scene with the cover of the book and a link to Amazon where you can buy your own copy, but we’re not quite there yet.

In the meantime, I’ll give you a small Wordle excerpt of chapter three.

  • Phew!Glad you are okay and not disappeared! I think I need to acquire your email message in case you disappear again so I know everything is okay :) That’s not crazy-ish, right?

    Congrats on writing the book. I bet it will be great.

      ZEUS!! In da house!

      Yeah, things are groovy tunes over here, just obsessed on something besides the blog. We should come up with a blogger protocol on how to handle breaks. Maybe I should get one of those signs that hang on a string. One side says “Open” and the other says “Closed” and you just turn it to the appropriate side.

      Or I could get a little clock with movable hands. Although I’d have to make one for each month with the appropriate number of days so I could point to when I’ll be back.

      Good to see you!

  • Heidi Klum says:

    Yay! So excited to see this pop up in my google reader this morning! Welcome back to the internet and glad you are okay :)

    • cardiogirl says:

      Heidi Klum! As you probably guessed, I was so bummed out to hear about Seal, but it makes sense when I listen to his most recent album/disc Soul 2. I have to say I think I’m feeling the blogging groove once again. At least twice a week’s worth. Thanks for the welcome back!

  • Erin says:

    I was just thinking about you the other day! I bought a pair of purple Converse low-tops and thought, “I wonder if Cardiogirl quit blogging forever or if she’ll be back at some point?” Glad to see you’re back, even if just for one post!

    • cardiogirl says:

      I wish there was some way to know what I’m really doing. That is, this time around in my head I didn’t have a defined amount of time for a break so I kept sort of thinking, ‘Eh, I’ll be back soon. And then soon became later and then it became three months later and so on. I should have just thrown something up that said I’d be doing good if I posted once every five weeks. Oh well.

      Sweep the Leg — congrats on the low tops! YES! My ConverseNation is growing one by one! I’m so jacked to hear about your new shoes and purple is an excellent color choice.

  • Solomon says:

    Sweep the leg~!~ Cardiogirl is back. :D

    Good to hear you’re doing well.

    • cardiogirl says:

      Woo-HOO! Solomon! I just thought of you the other day while I was on the elliptical because I was listening to “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane” and in the very beginning you can hear Andy Williams say, “You’re on!” I LOVE that part.

      I know you tried to get the song to start right after that but it makes me smile every time I hear it. Thanks for getting the mp3 for me! You’re a peach, I mean a persimmon!

  • Bumbles says:

    I thought perhaps A, you melted in a puddle from the heat wave leaving only your Converse behind or B, your mounds of laundry finally ate you.

    I still think of you every time the Gingha Seinfeld is on – Step off, George, Mimbo, Can’t spare a square…

    Exciting writing project – I must know, who did her dad have an affair with, Shaun Cassidy or Donny Osmond???

    • cardiogirl says:

      I was *thisclose* to melting — ugh it’s been 100 degrees many, many times this month but central air has saved me. Praise Jesus!

      That’s the best episode there is. There are so many awesome nuggets in that one, my favorite by far. Although I do love the one when Putty says, “That’s bogus!” when he learns that both he and Elaine are going to Hell.

      You’ll just have to wait to find out the identity of his lovah…

  • I thought maybe you’d gone for good. So glad to hear that you haven’t.

    Writing a book is a good reason for a blog break. I’m writing Mo’s memoirs at the moment, but it’s taking me a lot longer than four months!

    • cardiogirl says:

      Hiya Babs! Yeah, it was dicey for a little bit there, but I’m still hanging on to the old digs. I spent so much time and effort on this blog I can’t just let it die. I’d rather leave it on life support.

      Oy, this thing is taking way more than four months but we will finish it.

  • Elizabeth A says:

    Holy shit balls ~!~€~£~¥~!~

    That is so fucking awesome.

    You do your thing, Boo Boo. We’ll all be here when you get back.

  • Woooohoooooooo!

    Congrats to you and Jen. Glad the writing and your summer are going so well!

    • cardiogirl says:

      Thanks Meleah! It’s a hell of a lot harder than I thought it would be. Gah, what a lazy ass I am. I always think everything is gonna be a breeze and then I get into and think, ‘Damn. This is hard.’

      At least I’m predictable, right?

  • Middle State says:

    So glad you are busy writing and not kidnapped or lost in the desert or suffering from amnesia. Although, the more I think about it, that is very much the writing process. Among my freelance assignments this summer was editing the manuscript for a non-fiction book. Glad you are back!
