Well, it's official - the editor of the Local, Andy Hachadorian, emailed me yesterday to show me I'm officially on the Daily Local Website now. I thought I would be on the blogtown site, but it's on something innocuous called the Media Lab: http://dailylocal.com/medialab/ . I feel like some sort of labratory experiment or something.
Anyway, being here, and knowing at least 6 people will view it, and I don't mean everyday, I mean ever, since I'm about to email them to tell them it's here, well, I feel like Steve Martin in The Jerk, when the new phone book arrives:
Navin R. Johnson: The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here!
Harry Hartounian: Boy, I wish I could get that excited about nothing.
Navin R. Johnson: Nothing? Are you kidding? Page 73 - Johnson, Navin R.! I'm somebody now! Millions of people look at this book everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in print - that makes people. I'm in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.
[the Sniper points to Navin's name in the phone book]
Sniper: Johnson, Navin R... sounds like a typical bastard
Anyway, I'd like to thank my sisters, my cousin, and my wife in advance for visiting the site and for making me feel like I'm not a typical bastard! I'm SOMEBODY! Just like, well, Navin Johnson.
