The first thing I do every morning when I come downstairs, is check my Cozy Mystery blog comments. You cannot imagine my surprise to find the following comment posted by Allison:
Nothing to do with this blog post, but… did you see? Jim Parsons from Big Bang Theory was on Craig Ferguson tonight. Turns out he loves cozy mysteries, and he mentioned your website!! How cool is that!
Allison, I agree, “How cool is that!”
I have to admit that I was so excited that I immediately found the link to CBS’s The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Being mentioned on TV is beyond exciting (even if the “dot com” was bleeped from “Cozy Mystery dot com”). Hearing these two men talk about the books they read, well, that in itself was exciting. I think it’s especially “cool” when people today are willing to let it be known that they love to read. I mean, when was the last time you watched a talk show where the love for reading was a topic? (And the reason for the guest appearing on the talk show wasn’t to plug his/her book?)
Of course, when my husband finally came downstairs, I made him sit down and watch the clip on my computer. That’s right! Even before he drank his first cup of coffee, which, by the way, is a time when I try not to bother him. (He’s not a morning person, but coffee does tend to help a bit…)
My husband has been telling me all day that I should write this. I was hesitant to do so because I truly didn’t want to toot my own horn, and most importantly, I didn’t want to appear to be a “paparazzi” type of exploiter of celebrities. (I don’t buy “paparazzi” magazines at the check out, and surely, I wouldn’t want Mr. Parsons to feel like I’m exploiting him.)
Nevertheless, I’m so excited about my “fifteen seconds of fame” that I just could not contain myself.
(I just found out the link is no longer active, sorry!)
