Ten reasons you’re super glad I didn’t blog in my 20s (Blog Hop!)

1. A weekly series you’ll never have to read entitled “I can’t believe someone actually asked me to do some work at my work.”

2. Another weekly series you’ll never have to read entitled “I can’t believe I can’t make personal calls at the front desk.”

3. A third weekly series you’ll never have to read entitled “Planning your wedding from work: Let’s talk about wedding plans and then talk more about wedding plans and then really delve into my wedding plans.”

4. The great likelihood I would’ve invited you to like a page entitled

Ann Krinsky, First Soprano: Sailing on the High Cs and beyond!

5. I definitely knew I was positively ready to be your 27 year old life coach-relationship coach-dialect coach.

6. Avatars: Because who doesn’t want to “friend” her?


7. Had I blogged The Ad Sales years, instead of student loans I’d still be paying my defense council. And earning back my credibility about Queen of Swords and Dr. Laura.

8. Mustache-bleached selfies. Because if it’s a blond mustache it’s invisible. Just ask Simon & Simon.”

9. Vlogs. Of audition monologues. In the beginning I will look down and away from the camera. You’ll know I begin acting when I raise my head and look directly into the camera. You’ll know it’s over when I look down and away from the camera. If I didn’t explain this you’d probably just think it was me, since I blend so seamlessly into character of Jessica Tandy in Driving Miss Daisy.

10. And Oh Dear God This. Begin at 1:44 and never speak of it again.

    During “The Song of Separation” I think I separated some ribs from laughing.

  • Melissa at bubbyandbean.com January 31, 2013, 12:14 am

    I am so glad I decided to stop by your blog at 12:09 AM. “Glory to you Artemus! And to you, Apollo!”

  • Liz @ PeaceLoveGuac January 31, 2013, 12:57 am

    Ann! Is that your real hair or a Loretta Lynn wig??

  • Ann Imig January 31, 2013, 9:23 am



  • Marinka January 31, 2013, 6:25 am

    I want your avatar for mine right now!

  • Mama Melch January 31, 2013, 7:57 am

    I shudder to think of the blog posts I would have featured in my 20s. I hear blonde mustaches are making a comeback.

  • the mama bird diaries January 31, 2013, 8:17 am

    What was up with everyone wanting us to WORK at work. So crazy.

  • Amy Windsor January 31, 2013, 8:35 am

    This absolutely made my day… I love waking up and immediately laughing. That photo is priceless and the video? Well, it’s a little grim. BUt I blame the Iphigenia, not you. Your voice is lovely. ;)

  • Amy Windsor January 31, 2013, 8:36 am

    Is that first photo from Hello, Dolly! ?

  • Ann Imig February 1, 2013, 12:05 pm

    A non-musical, actually. Hypatia in George Bernard Shaw’s “Misalliance”

  • tracy@sellabitmum January 31, 2013, 9:13 am

    I honestly just don’t even know what to say right now. I love you. That is all.

  • Karen at French Skinny January 31, 2013, 9:21 am

    Best outfit ever!!!


  • darsden January 31, 2013, 9:23 am

    :-0 who is your designer?

  • Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog January 31, 2013, 9:47 am

    Voice is great. What was on your head, though?


  • Robin January 31, 2013, 10:18 am

    I’m SOBBING with laughter. Sick 6yo beside me: Why is that so funny? Why is that so funny? What’s so funny Momma??? Momma!! What’s so funny!

  • Nancy Davis Kho January 31, 2013, 10:34 am

    Aside from the Death Mask makeup, you know, you’re really quite good. Better than the Blow Monkeys. I think we WILL speak of this again.

  • Stefanie January 31, 2013, 10:34 am

    Number 9 is my favorite. So so funny.

  • Wendi January 31, 2013, 11:04 am

    I can’t stop laughing.

  • Lisa Page Rosenberg January 31, 2013, 11:13 am

    That red patent leather belt makes the period costume complete.
    I love your video.
    And you.

  • Suzy January 31, 2013, 11:14 am

    Editor’s notes:

    1. In the avatar picture, your head is on backwards.
    2. That is the worst production of Chicago I’ve ever seen although the prison set was terrific.

  • Deb Rox January 31, 2013, 11:23 am

    Hi Ann Krinsky, I think your Tumblr can go national into at least 24 cities! Can I send you a fax so that we might discuss?

  • Anna See January 31, 2013, 12:00 pm

    Loved this! And I thought I had a lot of hair…

  • Becky January 31, 2013, 12:29 pm

    I always thought you looked like Simon of Simon and Simon but couldn’t place it until now.

  • Erin I'm Gonna Kill Him January 31, 2013, 1:14 pm

    I know we’re not supposed to talk about it, but I can’t stop looking at that video.

  • Lady Jennie January 31, 2013, 1:26 pm

    I would have killed for that hair! My internet is so slow the video went to 1:45 and then started over. What’d I miss?

    And can you really hit a high C and beyond?

  • Tarable January 31, 2013, 1:35 pm

    You’re glad I wasn’t blogging in my 20s because all that random sex, beer, travel, drugs and…wait a second…why wasn’t I blogging in my 20s?

  • julie gardner February 1, 2013, 12:02 pm

    Are you telling me people can see my blond mustache?

  • tranquilamama February 1, 2013, 12:25 pm


    The slogan about the first soprano made me fall over in my chair. I totally want a business card to say that from a music major. Your voice is truly stunning.

  • The Flying Chalupa February 2, 2013, 9:53 am

    #10 – wow, truly wow. Yes, the hilarity value is high, but girl, you can sing!

    And I would have loved for you to have been my relationship coach / dialect coach – do you think there’s still time.


  • Andrea February 3, 2013, 9:49 am

    Thankfully, I am speechless (okay, and impressed)

  • Roshni AaMom February 4, 2013, 10:50 pm

    you certainly looked sensational!!

  • Kate Coveny Hood February 5, 2013, 8:55 am

    I am so grateful I didn’t have a blog in my 20s… Almost as grateful as I am that Facebook didn’t exist when I was in high school.

    Loved the Loretta Lynn comment! I was definitely getting a CMA vibe from that picture :)
