Oy vey!

At work tonight, I told some of the other employees about last night's incident with Curt Bramble. (There's no point in not writing his name. I was being stupid before. I get it.) Nick had already told the day shift workers. 

I was upset for a little while yesterday, but by the end of the night it was just a funny story. Everyone else at work thought the same thing. No big deal, right? I mean, who really cares about this stuff? I'm sure pizza delivery persons all over the country have had worse experiences with customers. It was a ridiculous incident, and I would have blogged about it and told all my friends even if this guy had been a nobody. 

Unfortunately, he wasn't a nobody, and my innocent blog got some attention (listen to "Bramble Tries to Write Check for Pizza"). I found all this out when I got home from work tonight. I have mixed feelings. Like, this is kind of my 15 minutes of fame, which is cool. I mean, this is way cooler than when I was on BYU Weekly (whoop-de-do). At the same time, I'm worried it will give Nick a headache. He's way too much of a softy to do anything but whine at me about it, but his inability to stick up for himself makes me feel doubly bad about causing him trouble. I mean, let me feel the consequences of my actions! Also, I'm slightly miffed that The Nightside Project kept saying I was 19 or something. Granted, I look about 14 in the picture on my blog, so all they could go off of when guessing my age is the fact that I am old enough to deliver pizza and vote. The guess is understandable, but, still, what 24-year-old wants to shave 5 years of her age? Maybe when I'm 40. I just never imagined my blog post would be this big a deal. I guess that was pretty naive of me.

Current song: "Radio Free Europe," R.E.M. Lots of R.E.M. lately. It's good for my soul.

If anything, we're going to order more from Nick. We love the shop, it's the best pizza in the valley, bar none.

When the newspaper put a link to your blog in it's article it opened your blog up to many people. I enjoyed your account of the incident, alhtough I no longer live in Utah I think telling people how this 'public' official behaves in real life is important. I enjoyed your style of writing! And what does living in Chicago have to do with anything!
go check out my blog if you get curious.....

Following your blog and hearing your honest, introspective analysis is a privilege. We need more people like you who care about the day-to-day experiences of life. Thanks for posting the arrogance of one of our law makers in action. It speaks volumes about the real man. And I promise, next time I'm in the area I'm coming in for a pizza.

That picture of you is really cute, but yeah, you do look like you're 14.

Who'd have thought it would have been so widely distributed...interesting how things happen.

Hope your life is back to normal-ish.

First, the oy vey... LOL I thought I was the only one who said that. I get a lot of flack for using those Yiddish words, but they are often the most appropriate ones to use. Second, I have to say that I loved the blog and the way you have handled it. Kudos to you. And just for the record, 40 ain't all that bad. I actually look 30 so it is possible to go into "old age" gracefully. Ha! Again, keep up the good attitude and enjoy the short 15 minutes of fame, although with a great attitude like yours and an obvious brain to match, you may well have many more opportunities for fame on the horizon. Ever considered writing political satire for a living? LOL Take care.
