OK, OK — in between freaking out about carpet, flooring, paint, and drywall demolition, I sneaked off for a little fun.
June 3 was the second annual "I Can Has Cheezburger" night at the Mariner's ball game in Seattle. And I was there. Oh, yes. And so was the New York Times, who decided to not only publish my (thankfully unidentified) picture right smack at the beginning, but also quote me.
Here are my now-apparently-immortal words of wisdom:
Tess Mattos, a 41-year-old knitting instructor who traveled up from Portland, Ore., for the event, said she had been a fan of the network’s flagship site for three years.
“It’s just a good, simple break from real life,” she said, adjusting the pair of sequined cat ears she was wearing. “It’s clever, but not mean-spirited.”
“People think we’re weird,” she quipped. “But have you seen the fans of ‘Twilight?’ ”
Must've been a slow news day!
I can't remember where I encountered this quote, nor can I find it online — but as somebody, somewhere, once said:
"I'll cope with any little bit of fame I can get."
