leave your inhibitions at the door
This past Friday, I peeked at my stats and saw a couple hundred hits for my Shoyu Ramen post. That post was about a month ago, so it getting a lot of hits was really out of the blue. It turns out that Bon Appetit featured my post in a slide show on their site. Check it out here.
Sure, there’s no money involved, but it’s still exciting. After pointing it out to Boom Boom and a couple friends, I realized I was sounding like Navin R. Johnson when he got the phonebook –
Navin: 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: 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.
[the Sniper points to Navin’s name in the phone book]
Sniper: Johnson, Navin R… sounds like a typical bastard.
Hopefully I won’t have a sniper come after me now…
Here’s the clip in case you’re totally lost:
Thanks Bon Appetit!
