My Big Break

That might be an exaggeration, but it's probably the closest I'll ever come to stardom.  My sister already scooped me on this story by posting it on her blog, but as it's really mine to tell I'll let everyone know.  I got an email from an underling from the Jay Leno Show yesterday.  She said she wants to include my youtube video (of the Diet Coke & Mentos rocket) on a feature they call Internet Successes and Failures.  The first question I asked was whether my video would be a success or a failure.  Naturally, it's a success since my video has now eclipsed 2,000,000 views.  It's not a guarantee the video will make the cut, but she told me she feels very confident it'll make it.  So watch the Jay Leno show on Wednesday night to see if you can spot my video.  If I find out beforehand that it'll be on, I'll let everyone know.  

This week's travels include: Texas (Houston and Abilene), New York City (cesspool of the country), and Nebraska (state slogan: "Don't bother").
