sal told sarah vowell about my blog

Sal with Sarah Vowell
(Sal, with Sarah Vowell)

I am not sure what to do. I am panicked, like a deer in headlights, or a deer in floodlights, or a deer that has been astropulted straight toward the sun. I feel like I should be rushing around sprucing up my template, or putting up links to my better posts, or completely transforming myself into a far more compelling human being.

Ha ha! Exactly how I felt the day you pointed your blog world to mine! I tried oh so hard to witty the next few days and even considered deleting some lamer posts....

Ms. Vowell, if you do in fact visit my friend's blog (yeah, I'm the guy who offered you cookies and a cup of orange juice, my friend Megan's idea), I want to say thanks for visiting us in Madison. It was great to finally put a 'real' person's image to the audiobook voice. :-)

Anyhow, I hope you like Jeremy's blog...

Sal: Cookies and orange juice? Smooth as ever, Sal. Only way I could be that smooth is to have a Zamboni run over me a couple times.

Dan: Yes, but my readers are just people. This is Sarah Vowell.

Jeremy, I think you should start by cleaning up your apartment. Yeesh.

Sarah mentioned at the dinner that she "wasn't much of a blog reader" but that was in response to a question about where she gets her news, so it may be just news blogs that she doesn't read. In any case, I'm fairly convinced that either your perfect for each other, or that the combination of both of your sets of quirks would cause some sort of supernatural disaster. Nothing in between.

She's a lovely person. Sort of endearingly obsessive, as one might expect from her books.

Jeremy: As soon as I discovered your blog, I developed a huge crush on you. It is witty, smart, and incredibly charming. I say that if Sarah Vowell finds her way here, you are in, without a doubt.

I agree with Anon 11:04. You seem to underestimate the power of your personality, which comes through in your blogging, on inducing crushes.

I sure hope you're not seeing anyone right now, because if you are and that person is not Sarah Vowell then it would suck to read this thread. You know, sort of like the way it sucks to be told that you should date the other twin.

jeremy said...

Anon 11:04, 11:38: Mom, it's good to know that you are still reading my blog, and that you've figured out how to leave comments. Say hi to Dad for me!

jeremy said...

Absolut: What would technically suck most of all would be if I was seeing someone who was a dizygotic twin with an inferiority complex. However, as you know, my actual romantic life is and always has been strictly off limits on this blog.

umm, sarah who?

in that picture sarah vowell looks like she's going to kill me.

Jeremy... Sarah Vowell will be here in Morgantown next month. I'll try to follow Sal's lead. Perhaps we can get a cadre of JFW readers to plug your blog at multiple stops along her speaking tour. Yeah... that will be fun.

I know that JFW is not the place to vent my neurotic spleen, but...
I loved Sarah Vowell long before you did, Jeremy. Back in the day when I would listen to This American Life every week faithfully, hoping to hear a Sarah Vowell piece, and you would laugh at my pitiful public radio addiction. So I'm cooler than you are.
