Heads Will Roll
Okay, seriously, why did I not know about this until now? Someone out there has been asleep at the wheel. Craig Ferguson narrated a thing on the ancient history of Scotland. Next you're going to tell me that Kristen Bell has put out a series of videos on the history of beer. I would purchase that at pretty much any price. So, y'know, if it hasn't been made someone should get around to doing it. Meanwhile, here's my theory. I mentioned Marty Casey* on my blog last week and for some unfathomable reason ended up getting linked from his home page for mind boggling reasons. So this week I'm going to see if I can expand my powers (and ignore all those times I mentioned, say, Local H or the Peacemakers and didn't get linked from their home pages) and get Kristen Bell's attention on the theory that she sits around Googling herself** and hoping, just hoping that somewhere out there a history blogger with a daily circulation of something less than 100 is using his practically non-existent platform to help her further her career. She will then fall in love with that non-celebrity history blogger for reasons that are not currently clear and then there will be something involving rainbows and ponies. I still haven't fully worked out the kinks. However, I'm going to repeatedly mention Craig Ferguson, since the place I'm most likely to see Kristen Bell is on his show (since I don't watch Heroes and am not actually particularly likely to watch anything Kristen Bell is in and, therefore, am not even entirely sure why I know who she is). I have therefore decided that they are good friends and he'd introduce me to her at some point. By the way, this entire post is a good example of why I shouldn't blog while sleep-deprived. Also, I've now created a game. Say for some inexplicable reason an extremely famous person starts dating you. What's the funniest way a tabloid could introduce you to the world? I'm going with, "Geds, a non-celebrity history blogger and orange juice aficionado from just outside Chicago." -------------------------------- *By which I mean "declared Marty Casey a god and told people repeatedly to buy Heavy Crown." Poh-tay-toe, poh-tah-toe... **There's a very tasteless joke in there somewhere.
