Marketplace Money appearance and Twitter chat

On the radio
If you listen to public radio, you might have heard me this weekend as a call-in guest on Marketplace Money. Unlike any of my other media appearances in the past few years, this one had nothing to do with my books, my blog, weight loss, headaches, or anything relevant to my online presence. Instead, I had a question about a $2600 request for overpayment on a 401K rollover from my last employer who made a vesting error on the employer’s matching contributions and oh my God do you want to stab your eyes with a rusty paperclip yet? Because I do. Anyway, I wanted some help sorting out this financial mess that was not my fault but is now my problem, so Tess Vigeland and Kathy Kristof came to the rescue. You can listen to it by clicking the “Listen to the Show” or “Listen to this Story” buttons on this page and scrolling to the 21:35 mark. I even slipped in a plug for PastaQueen.com! I’m getting much better at this self-promotion stuff.

Tomorrow night #MovePT TweetChat
I have never actually attended a Twitter chat, probably because I am 30 now and far too old to understand you youngin’s and your twittergraphs. But, if you are into that sort of thing, there’s a TweetChat happening tomorrow night, November 3, from 6pm-7pm ET hosted by The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). The chat will be about staying active and living healthy. It’s hosted by AOL’s That’s Fit blog. Talli van Sunder, PT, DPT, a blogger, health expert and APTA Member, will be available to answer questions. To join the Tweetchat, visit http://tweetchat.com/room/MovePT, login to Twitter and follow the hashtag #MovePT.

We usually do listen to Marketplace Money but I missed it over the weekend. I’ll have to ask hubby if he caught it while he was working since he listens on his DROID sometimes. GOOD FOR YOU!

And I hope you got the money situation figured out. Money can be so stressful!

Cool you, being on Marketplace Money!

I heard you on the podcast as I was driving to work on Monday. You did the self promotion things just right. They asked you questions so it wasn’t just a plug.

It is nice to now have an actual voice to reference as I read your writing.

I am a serious NPR fan so it’s always on in my car. Imagine my surprise when I heard your nickname “Pastaqueen” mentioned on Marketplace Money! I couldn’t believe that it was actually you! I’ve been following your blog for the last year during my own weight-loss journey (62 lbs down) so it was a crazy (and fabulous) coincidence that I heard you on the radio. Keep up the great blogging!
