I'm a media slut

In the last 48 hours I've spoken to about 10 newspaper journalists and been interviewed for no less than 6 radio programmes (first one: scary; last one: blasé). A piece of my work which a friend described as "the cutest research ever" has been jumped on with a frenzy.

I'm not going to post a link here, but suffice to say if you've hear or read anything about children's language in the British media today, it's almost certainly me. But nothing will stop me going to Brownies tonight. Except maybe John Humphrys.

If you aren't going to give us a link, you need to give us the abbreviated version. Spill it.

I'm very impressed! Was it difficult to gather that kind of data in light of your reproductive issues? Some days I don't think I could handle being around kids.

Now THAT is pretty darn cool. X still makes "spit" bubbles (lots of saliva on the lips) and tries to say Mommy w/o breaking them. I think that just makes him bored, but I'll tell people about your research. I won't add that yours was on infants...mmmkay?

Media slut is good. Ahhhh, John Humphrys - there are some things we shouldn't even TRY to resist!

wow, aren't you impressive! Well done, it sounds like really interesting research.
