Guy Kawasaki Likes White Trash Mom

Dear WTMs, Guy Kawasaki, one of my FAVORITE business writers, mentioned the white trash mom blog in one of HIS blogs yesterday. I was totally floored by this because I read his blog and I love his book "The Art of the Start". Mr. Kawasaki runs a successful venture capital firm and is very easy to understand---for a newbie geek like me. His style is refreshing and very down to earth. The irony is that the last few months I have been trying to raise capital to expand the jeans business. I have been getting kicked around pretty hard and have not had much success. One of my favorite authors/business gurus notices the White Trash Mom blog. Isn't that a scream? Only in America! Alanis Morissette says it best, don't you think? Have a good one WTMs!
Ironic by Alanis Morissette

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn't it ironic... don't you think?

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
"Well isn't this nice..."
And isn't it ironic... don't you think?

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic... don't you think?
A little too ironic... and yeah I really do think...

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out

Congrats on making the mommy blog list. I actually had run across your site through that list...white trash mom? Hmm...that sounds catchy!

If people do not see a mommy blog that they enjoy up there, you can submit it in the comments section of his blog post. I love Rockstar Mommy and I requested that one. It is great to be able to expand the list with all of your favorites.

Congrats on being recognized!

Get out of town! A shout out from Guy, that just rocks! I've been smitten with him since the 80's when he was the big Mac evangelist....
I'm so proud for you!

I do have to quibble with Alanis however.... none of the things which she mentions are ironic. Many of them are disappointing, or inconvenient - but not truly ironic. (Unless she was making a subtle point - that the biggest irony of all is the lack of true irony in the song, perhaps???)
