mid interview

I'm being interviewed this morning, but I have a couple of minutes until the next call comes in, and am still fascinated and delighted with the following article. Go and read it. I'll still be here when you get back.

Did you read it? Now, think about this. Someone got paid for writing that. If anyone out there reading this ever wondered if you could make it as a staff journalist in today's cutthroat newspaper world, I think the answer is, yes. You can.

You could, for example, use this kind of journalistic approach to writing about politics...

2. Europe's a bunch of different countries, but the US is all states. What's with that?


5. The president before Clinton was George Bush. And now the current president is George Bush. Weird coincidence. I wonder if they could be related?

and even

7. There was a war in Iraq? Huh?


And someone wrote in this morning asking if this was really me: and no, its not.


Hi! I've always joked that if ever you visit the Philippines, I would drop everything and stalk you. Apparently, I'm not the only one with that idea because my creative writing professor warned us not to bother her on july 9,10 and 11 because she'll be stalking you too. You have and extremely LARGE following here and everyone is excited to finally meet you. I just thought I'd warn you in case you see a lot of us lurking around...ayn:)

I have this vision of me walking down the street in the Philippines with a few hundred people following me as inconspicuously as possible, all pretending they don't know each other...
