New Day #96

OH. MY. GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oprah just called. Okay, that's an exxageration. Someone from Oprah's office just called. Well, actually, someone from Oprah's office just called my publicist, who just called me.

Anyway, they're interested in my What's New project!!!!!!!!!!!! That's right, someone who shares molecules with the Queen of the Universe herself has actually read this very blog.


My mind is spinning. If it really does happen, what will I say? What I will wear? How will I make sure that the kids who were mean to me on the bus in the third grade are watching?

Oh, and one other thing...

April Fool's.

Whew, I was afraid I would have to quit reading you for going to the dark side.

i hate april fool's day, i am way too gullible for a day like this to exist...

I was so excited WITH you... until the end...

It brought me back to the days when my dad would call us early in the morning from work telling us to turn on the news because our school was burning down. I was filled with concern and excitement all to be crushed that it was April Fools day.

That's HILARIOUS. It reminds me of my friends who, anytime their children misbehaved in public, they would threaten to dance. Mortified, the kids would straighten up.

you are such an ass.

Jessica Burkhart said...

Damn. You had me. :)

Susan said...

You totally got me! But maybe next time Her Highness googles herself she WILL see your blog and ask you on the show. Self-fulfilling prophecies CAN come true.

Joyous said...

My sister does that ALL the time. My 12 year old niece is MORTIFIED!! Either that or she will sing at the top of her lungs. Poor kids lol!

Katy said...

I was gonna call you an asshole, but I thought that might not be nice. But seriously, you so had me. And I was excited because I thought I would be able to watch the interview on youtube.

You know what? Screw it.

Asshole.

(p.s. I was gonna call you something much worse. But I was afraid that blogspot might **** me.)

i'm a fool.

Fran said...

But isn't it great that we all think -- no, KNOW you're cool enough for Oprah to be interested?

And you are, and she should.

Jamie said...

Hey, did you hear? Opra is going to have someone other than herself on the cover of "O" magazine next month!

Now that's too unbeleivable for April Fools.

I, however, almost gave my boss an April Fools heart attack today. It is pretty job specific, but just know that it was good times watching him sweat.

Derek T. Pickens said...

I just stumbled upon your blog too, how crazy!

But don't worry, Derek's Blog will be back in full swing in about a month. But until then, you can catch up on the past episodes and just get really excited for the new season! :^)

OH for the love of god. That's like the 5th Fools day post I've fallen for... And it's April 2nd now!

Matthew Paessler said...

Okay, Marc, you leaving a comment on my blog was about as exciting for me as you being on Oprah would be exciting for you. Oookay, maybe not AS exciting as Oprah, but you know… reeeaally close. I absolutely love your book and now your blog and pretty soon your new book. Oh and your tie belt from a few posts ago. Anyways, I could go on but I don’t wanna seem too much like a fanboy. I’ve gotta run to rehearsal now (I’m guest starring as Teen Angel in my school’s production of Grease right now). Have a great day! :)

Caffeine Destiny said...

Oh my God I so believed you. What an idiot I am.

lkmadigan said...

I am so very very gullible.

gay CME guy said...

Like Matthew P, I was so excited when you, a published real (non-academic)author and all around cool guy left a post on my blog a while back. I nearly peed myself! (well, not really-but it adds a sordid element to my otherwise boring post).

Step Right Up said...

Thank God that was an April Fool's joke because if there were really a chance that you were going to be a part of the Oprah Cult I was thinking of how to debrainwash you.
