I'm Somebody Now!

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.

- Steve Martin and Jackie Mason in The Jerk

So why did I quote that scene from The Jerk? Because I'm feeling like Navin myself right now!

For some reason (probably because she bumped her head and is confused), my good friend Neva decided to ask me to write a post for her hysterical and highly acclaimed blog Central Snark today, and now I'm finally "somebody!"


That's right, not just any schmuck can write a post for Central Snark - only the most special schmucks get to write for Central Snark. Hey, wait a minute...

Anyway, maybe if YOU think I'm special too, you can stop on over and say hi. Because maybe if I can snow them impress them enough, they might just ask me back.

Congrats Jeff. It had better be funny though if I have to take all that time to link to another blog and all...

you could NOT have picked a funnier scene from which to address the sense of "being someone". not kidding, The Jerk is one of my all-time favs. not sure that info will ease your mind any, but hey, at least with our compatible humor sensibilities we can look forward to padded cells next to each other.

you did a fantastic post for the Snark, and, with luck (mine), just the first of many (no worries, i hear Bellvue is equipped with WiFi) : )
