Pee-Wee, Ebay, Spring Cleaning and imuchas gracias!
Current mood: adventurous
I have been meaning to update you guys, and I am finally sitting down to do it. A lot of fun stuff is going on and I want to share it with you guys. I have been doing some traveling that doesn't involve work, which is a new thing for me.
I went out to LA to see a few of The Pee-Wee Herman Shows live on stage. Anyone who has done any research on me probably already knows this- but I am a HUGE Pee-Wee fan, so it was pretty amazing to be in the playhouse after all these years. As if the amazing show wasn't enough, I actually got to meet up with Paul Reubens after the show. I was a total dork. All I could do was smile and nod, or I would have just started gushing- mimicking the laugh, chirping my favorite quotes, doing the tequila dance, and I'm sure all I would have gotten in response was "I love that story, heh, heh......... Security!". I managed to make it through saying hello and keeping my cool, until I got to the other cast members. I didn't feel the need to save face with those guys and just gushed and gushed running around grabbing anyone on the show and making them pose for a picture with me. Total dork moment- but a real dream come true. I hear the show may be headed to NY, if you have the chance to catch it I highly recommend it.
I also went down to vacation in Nicaragua. It was the first time in forever I was on a foreign beach and didn't have to wake up at 4 am for a photo shoot and do real vacation stuff-Horseback riding, zip-lining, sailing, hanging out on the beautiful beaches, and monkeys!! The people are amazingly friendly, and the beaches and volcanoes are unbelievable. I really had a great time - so much so, I bought a house on the beach down there!! I am really excited to visit, explore, and get to know that country even more.
This winter has been never ending in Atlanta, but I think Spring is finally here! That lead me to my basement for some spring cleaning. I was doing pretty good until I came across of a huge box of letters and cards people had sent me when I broke my neck. You guys RULE!! Thinking back, I don't know how I could have done it without you. That was a really depressing, painful, and lonely time. Your thoughtfulness and words of encouragement made such a huge difference and gave me the inspiration I needed to get back in the ring. Thanks for being such great fans.
I have been asked for years to start an ebay account, but there are a number of reasons I haven't considered it until now. The main one being, I HATE going to the post office. I don't know why, I just do. Secondly, I have never even been on Ebay, and wouldn't know how to set up an account (I am sure it's self explanatory, i know, i know), and thirdly I have always thought it was kind of cheesy until I went digging through a bunch of my personal memorabilia and thought it would be pretty cool if fans could enjoy some of this stuff. I feel like a lot of you guys have grown up with me and it would be cool to share some stuff from my personal collection with you.
My friend Kat is in town and is going to monitor it everyday making sure all of your questions are answered, stuff is mailed off immediately,and I personalize everything the way you want it- unless of course you wanted it to say something like.. "Dear Stud, you were great last night, love, Lita.".... cuz that would be cheesy
I have looked through my stuff and was remembering all the crazy and special matches I had over my career. I don't just want to throw a bunch of crap up there and have a big junk sale. I have hand picked some meaningful stuff to me and created some packages I hope you guys enjoy checking out. Give us feed back. Do you remember certain matches or stuff you want to see listed? Oh, I found the shirt I was wearing when Ivory busted my head open at Survivor Series. Too bad it's black and isn't all blood stained....ah, memories
And even if you didn't send me a get well card in 2002, I appreciate all of you guys more than you know. I will be including a free gift with every order, just to say thanks.....
We will be launching the store soon at Ebay- amydumas_direct see you there!!
