Dave Barry read my e-mail!

For the second time in my life, one of my heroes, Dave Barry has acknowledged my presence in the universe by posting a link I sent him to his blog. The first time was a few years ago, when I sent him a link to the Colonblow website, which he promptly posted to his blog. (Naturally, this was humor that could have been made by the Daveness himself!) Here is the discussion that ensued from that fortunate event:

After a few weeks of following the blog faithfully, I guess I got back to actually working at work again and quit following it. Then, last week, for some reason I decided to look it up and see what was going on with the blog. Still the same collection of weirdos and freaks that had previously hung out here. While following one link, I found another story that made me laugh out loud. I decided to send it to the Dave, and once again, a very famous person not only read my e-mail, but posted the link to his blog!

Wow! I am almost a psuedo-not-really-famous person now! Two times!

Woo Hoo!

(now back to your regularly scheduled life...)


After such a smashing success at sending links to be posted by the Dave Barry blog, I got a little carried away and sent a few more. Good news and Bad news: I got a real-live actual reply to my e-mail from the Bloggerette! (Judy, Dave's assistant blog-sitter). Bad news, my link was rejected because it had already been blogged. Actual text of the message below:

Sorry to pepper you with more stories, but this one must be seen to be
believed. I have read your works on the insidious conspiracy of small
animals to harm humans, and this site has all of the evidence in one

Look for the full coverage of the Squirrel Menace after the story.

I think we blogged that one a long time ago. metro seems to take US
stories from a while back and give them a funny twist.

But thanks --

OK, now go back to your lives. Really. I mean it this time.

Still here?
