Something particularly cool happened just now. I took a break from packing to catch up my newsfeeds, and happened upon Dooce’s latest post about a camera crew from ABC World News being on the way, and that the segment would be aired tonight. So naturally I wandered downstairs at that very moment to make sure ABC World News would be recorded, whenever it happened to be on – since no one had mentioned a time and I generally get my network news from the Daily Show.
I turned on the TV and found ABC World News. It was almost over. There were ten minutes left in the show. I hit record, just in case I hadn’t yet missed the segment.
I kid you not, thirty seconds from the moment I sat down, they started talking about folks who lose their jobs because of their websites, and the almighty Dooce herself was on the screen. And I’m not a fangirl, but her little Leta is perhaps even more cute in the moving pictures than she is on the website. It was a pleasant jolt of serendipity. I was utterly delighted.
It seems like the recording I made was botched somehow, also, and that makes it even more interesting that I managed to turn the TV just as the segment was about to air. I am quite amused by the entire happenstance.
Afternote: I went to add some trackbacks to this post, and discovered that dooce.com was completely unreachable. The world is totally whammying Heather’s web host. Woot!
