Listen: Los Angeles, Utah, Larry discussed on The Forward with Lance Armstrong
"I was in startups in Los Angeles. Thousands, and I misspell dude all the time, because everybody calls each other, dude, you, call your boss. Dude, you call your husband dude. You call your wife dude? So people in Utah. Don't know how to spell dude. I just it would like autocorrect or do something. And I would always say deuce and like some of my co workers caught onto it and they started calling me news. And so it became a nickname. And so when I went to go get a URL it was five letters and who has a five, Larry owning more. Right. So in two thousand and I was like, I'll just go to get that one. So it made no sense. It makes sense to anybody. No, it doesn't make any sense, but now it does actually not makes perfect sense and you were able to get it. You didn't have to buy it. I just registered all all of them. Yeah. And that started as a would your mom in two thousand two thousand s single for more Mormon sewing her, very, very wild oats and I thought that I would write stories about what it was like to live as a former Mormon sewing, her wild oats, I didn't think more than twelve people would read it. And so I wrote very, very, very outrageous things in the early days. Nice, not that I don't go back and read some of those, I took a lot of the down. My dad found it. Yeah. Gotcha. Yeah. And then but then some pointed evolved into as you said, in this bio, mommy, blog, or, or, or did it evolved? And that's where the following really. Yes, I'm into three. I got pregnant, and I thought okay. Well, I'm never going to be able to blog while I have kid who has time to do anything when they have a kid, why am I going to blog? There's no there's no time. And then when I got pregnant like my traffic jumped because all of a sudden, this really irreverence kind of crazy person was going to have a kid. And then when I had my baby like my traffic tripled in a day, and they were like, oh, she has a kid in. She gonna talk about having a kid like she normally talks about life. And that's exactly what I did because hated what was going on? I mean I had really bad postpartum depression. And I had no idea what I was doing. And as a mother as a mother. Yeah I mean I love my candy. Change diaper diver, but I didn't know like she was colic. He and so didn't sleep for more than thirty minutes at a time. Eat. And it was just like so confused on I talked about that quite a bit. And people were eager to hear this from somebody online who wasn't filtered through a magazine or filtered through a publisher like here. I was this woman publishing herself saying the sucks. This is fucking like terrible. I can't believe I got myself into this. I love her. I would never give her back, but I don't know what the buck on new ING, and people were so eager to hear that from someone that my traffic just like completely went crazy and nuts went into golf like it literally just went off the roof. Oh, we'll give them some more this. We'll give them another kid. I eventually we give them another kid. Yes. Not on purpose. But you were married at the time I was married at the time he was he hopeful with the kid thing. Or I mean normally at team deal. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. I'm going to give him credit. I mean, you know, he he, he never really wanted kids that much I was the one who was like I want kids, and he's like, okay all along for the ride. He didn't know what he was doing either me. Neither of us did. And we had a call he kit, anybody who's a kit understands it is fucked up twelve out, you know, all day long twelve hours straight. And then if you are lucky they sleep for like twenty five minutes at a time. And it was like that for every strumming because I'm crazy about sleep. So if I don't sleep, it's I'm the worst human being alive. And so that, that would just. That will that might put me in a place where you went to. Yeah, I had severe postpartum."
