I worked at truTV while you were still in short pants. Since 2008, to be exact. And maybe you weren't in short pants as it was January when the network I had been hired to work at in 2004 magically became truTV. And you would've been cold wearing those short pants. Unless of course you were near the equator, which is totally possible now that I think about it.
In my long stint at truTV I wore many hats. Stetsons, a Fez, a little teal number with a veil and a bird on it. But I also did lots of stuff for truTV. However, my proudest moments were when I was dealing out the dumb. Things like:
3. The guy who had sex with a picnic table. Allegedly.
Anyway, I left truTV for another network. I now work for BBC America. No, I wasn't having an affair. How would you sleep with a network anyway? (Seriously, sounds fun, please let me know.)
Already I miss covering the stupid. Luckily my Facebook friends still send me stories of guys and gals who stash illegal stuff in their ass, but I fear that someday this stream of stupidity will become a trickle and then, one sad day, it will stop.
It's not that I've gone totally straight. At my new job, there are a lot of Brits, but I'm not exactly doing Shakespere. I'm dishing chocolate robot cakes and on Friday I'm getting up at 3AM to wear a tiara and cover a bridesmaid's dress competition. Good times.
I've been around the block at many entertainment outlets and maybe, like a bad zombie film, I'll be back. Thanks for the dumb memories and below you'll find info on how to stalk me in a socially-acceptable way.
