At lunch today, I explained to my travel colleagues that I’m going to be “Canada famous” as soon as the kilt video of me comes out on the Toronto Sun’s website. One travel ourno piped up, “Wanna be New Jersey famous?”Two words: Hells, yeah!
It’s tough to tell if I’m building buzz or spoiling the surprise. Fuck it, not my problem. Sometime in the next week or two, you’ll see video of me on the Toronto Sun’s website. I’m trying on and modeling a desert camouflage kilt. Yes, a kilt. Not a skirt. Get it right. Since my camera died this afternoon (needed to recharge the battery, which I’ve done), I don’t have any pictures of it yet. But, fellow traveler B. has promised to send me hers sometime soon. So, as soon as I get them, I’ll post the shots of me looking like a true Scot (well, maybe not that much, but I did wear it like a true Scot).
This will be my second dose of Canadian fame. Last week, I was interviewed for a story in the Globe and Mail on distance learning and online education. Well, since this is all Canadian, maybe I’m only going to be 2/3 internet famous.
As soon as I get them, the photos will be posted, don’t you worry. And, when the video is up on ToSun’s site, I’ll spread the word here and on twitter.
