Disclaimer: All of the events in this book occurred before I turned 30. I cannot beheld responsible for any of the incoherent shenanigans I got myself into.When I was a confused youngster, I thought by the time I turned 30 I would havedone the following:Gotten marriedHad two childrenBecome Mary HartMet a ton of celebritiesWon an EmmyI have done three of those things – gotten married, met celebs and won an Emmy.Well, WRAL.com won the Emmy, but since I am a member of that team and worked onthe content we won the Emmy for, I am technically an Emmy winner, so suck on that.The day we took photos with the Emmy was like Christmas. I was overjoyed tohold him in my arms. For some reason, I kept calling the trophy “him,” so I decided thatour Emmy was a transsexual. He was so pretty, just like RuPaul.I looked like Gollum from “Lord of the Rings” in all of my photos with Em, Inamed him that. I had a death grip on that little ladyboy.With winning an Emmy checked off of my list, I thought about some of the other things I wanted to accomplish. Sometimes the stuff you never even imagined doing become the memories you’re most proud of.
