While I’m too busy not blogging about my myself, it’s a good thing someone else IS!

Announcing my debut on NPR’s featured Tacky Tourist Photos blog!

Also to be mentioned, I’ll be appearing on the Pongr advertising blog thanks to my fascination of American brands in foreign countries. Will link when ready.

DP. PC.

I’m a PC! And I’m in Times Square!

My PC spot says ‘I’m a PC.. and I do the Heisman.’ (please note the Heisman trophy behind me)

My PC profile on the Windows page.

Check out the banner ads too.

Can’t say it was ever a goal to have my face displayed on Times Square, but let’s check that one off the to-do list anyway..

CP: oh.my.god.
CP: i think being in times square is definitely on the path to world domination
CP: so you should just layer it into the plan
CP: we can use that for campaign ads later

DP: got my absentee ballot yesterday
DP: vote for me!!
CP: since i vote in MD i might write you in
CP: because i think obama is pretty safe there


dwight. day.

Rainn Wilson, aka Dwight K. Schrute from The Office, was at CNN today! The Brit hostilely made me submit an iReport, which quickly became a monster in the newsroom. Behold:

Email from The Brit:
Subject: I don’t see a submission from your Dwight bobblehead yet

So like the good obedient child that I am, I put together my very first iReport:
http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-46990

Next email from The Brit:
The iReport team are complaining that you didn’t send video…

Comments from inside the building, useful suggestion at end.

DW: http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-46990
The Brit:
I made her send it!
The Brit:
and have berated her for it not being video
DW:
Thank you, saves me from having to do it.
DW:
I’m betting not first time she’s gotten berated for “doesn’t follow directions.”
DW:
it’s gotten 56 hits in 14 minutes.
The Brit:
really? oh lord, she’ll be insufferable. But 50 of those prob from inside here
DW: i don’t know how the click counts work internally. she didn’t even have her picture in her profile. i’m pretty sure some of our users get additional clicks because of picture they choose
The Brit: it’s her first submission, bless her
DW:
i’m just saying. she’s got her logo. i’m estimating that picture of female is good for at least a 10% increase in clicks. more if they’re cute.

More, via IM:
The Brit: … But I have created a whole new audience for dpnation …
DP: i just changed my profile pic
The Brit: a man wandering past my cube says “that’ll work”

And somewhere out of this, I think got hitched:
y++: breaking news!
y++: Deeps is now my gf
Skybil: WOW!!
y++: yes
Skybil: Let me start spreading rumors …
y++: fictional, perhaps, but where’s the line these days
y++: yes yes, she’s my gf
Skybil: True. Lots of relationships are based on fiction!
y++: entirely
Skybil: Indeed

DW comes through on my iReport, clears for on air usage!

DW: “I’ll make an exception and vet this one.”

Q&A between DW and DP (required for iReports used on CNN):
Did you take the picture? — YES and those are my bobbles (Teixiera is a gift from the Brit herself)
What kind of camera did you use? — iPhone, hence why the picture quality is so awful
Where do you live? NYC
What do you do? MBA/online celebrity/bacon enthusiast
Are you over 18? pretty sure, yes.

They begin to realize they’ve created a monster:
Skybil: You’ve made Dana insufferable!!
Skybil: I blame you
DW: made?
Skybil: Good point

Going live in 3.. 2..
The Brit: make sure you watch this thing on dotcom live
The Brit: there may be a surprise for you

Wes’ brush with fame and 20/20 hindsight:
Wes: OMG OMG I just got to shake dwight schrute’s hand
DP: OOOOOH
Wes: he even talked to me
Wes: bet you’re regretting business school now

Dwight signing T’s [exercise] ball.

See Dwight head to the weather center and do the forecast for CNN. Unsure of what he did to Chad Myers, the regular weather guy.

m++’s ultimate plan:
m++: skybil has given me a strategy on how to get you down here
m++: deeps, your hair looks terrible, you need to visit your stylist here
[he may be onto something here..]

on notice!

This is even better than the threatdown..

The current On Notice/Dead to me list can be found here. And by current, that really means like, a few months ago in Boston.. where all the website files are.

QOTD: and while you’re looking, you have to say “well all my clothes will fit in this closet, but where will my boyfriend’s stuff go?” -Shannon, on me being on House Hunters

Both The Twin and I just found out that we got entries into the New York City Half Marathon!

And you know who’s hosting it.. the Swoosh, of course. Which might make one wonder about a certain store in a certain city of residence for the summer that has yet to be checked off the list. Oh please, I was at the NYC Niketown within 24 hours of being in the city.

Let’s put this baby up on the big board:

Also, going on an impromptu roadtrip to DC this weekend. Where apparently we’re going running. Well, I suppose I do actually have training to do now..
