I'm on the (local) news!

Okay...so it's not that big of a deal. We are the 170th largest media market, so pretty small.

We have 2 stations that have local news, and I'm on one of them. I would have been on the other as well, but had to leave work for an appointment when the other station came by.

This week is National Pharmacy Week and we are collecting people's expired medications for disposal. They asked me a few questions why we are doing this and why it is important.

Hmmm..I think my next step is a movie!
(Actually, that chance is hopefully coming up in February.)

As long as nothing happened where someone needed to post your bail, that's great!

I wish I could get expired medications, especially if they were xanax or lortabs. That would be pretty sweet.

Don't get your hopes up. I was on the local news when I was 8. I was at a fishing derby and I caught a sock. I never got a call back

You should start looking for fish while fishing. Then you might get the almighty call back.

Hey, there was a kid next to me that caught a pair of nylons with a rock in them. He didn't even get on the news. Thinking back on it, I'm not sure if there were any fish in that lake.

Actually, I kind of have an in.
My brother and sister-in-law are producing/directing a movie (comedy). The plan is to start shooting in February, assuming they get the financing they need (anyone have any extra money?!?). The movie was written for Dave Mordahl (Last Comic Standing fame) and also has a part for Rich Voss. It was written by someone who knew Dave growing up in Minnesota. The writer is my brother's friend.

Um... why are you doing this and why is it important?

Congrats!


We heard from four people that they saw Mrs. Pusser talking with Robert Redford the other night. We didn't watch the news.

So Dave Mordahl is going to be in it? Why not just have him write the damn thing.
