I was reading the beginnings of my blog the other night and came across some interesting comments from one Jason DeRusha. Now, Mr. DeRusha, though he might deny it, once upon a time read my blog. This is because, when Rex started MNSpeak, Jason and I were neighboring blogs. On Thursday, September 15th, 2005, I made a comment that Jason had left a comment on my blog, and felt important.
The following is his response:
"1. You guys think I'm a local celeb? D-list at best.
2. You guys think I have an intern? I wish."
Now, go to Jason's WCCO blog page. Here, I'll help you.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen...after 5 years (and I know it was well before this too), Jason does indeed have an intern.
As for being a D-list celebrity. Well let's start here: Singing at a Twins Game.
Then there's the monthly article...Seen here.
And I could go on and on.
Hey, I like this guy...even though I've never met him. I tried once, but he ran away at warp speed from the dude yelling his name. And if not for him, I never would have had the opportunity to meet Katie Couric and watch Matt get his pen taken away...among other things.
I don't think he reads my blog anymore, and that's ok. He's moved beyond it (as most have, dear reader), but I'm glad that for a little while, he and I were e-neighbors...and that I could prove that his comments made on my blog would ironically come back to bite him.
You have to love the interwebs.
So thanks, Jason.
