It doesn’t matter one bit to me. I’m just ready for Major League Soccer to officially announce that they are giving an expansion team to Sacramento..
I am very confused abut how I am a “Tumblr celebrity”. I’m unclear as to how one becomes a “Tumblr celebrity”; I’m not sure what it means exactly; I’m hoping that it doesn’t require any particular responsibilities; and, again, I don’t have any idea what makes one a “Tumblr celebrity”. Can I get paid for it — some sort of stipend or per diem? — because, if so, you can count me in.
Would I consider doing a Meet-up in Sacramento? Sure, I would consider it, but I doubt that I have enough followers from Northern California to justify one. I’m flattered that anyone would be interested in that, but I believe that my importance and/or popularity is being dramatically overstated. I just can’t see my readers populating any sort of Dead Presidents Meet-up, and it would be pretty embarrassing to announce one and then sit there all night mindlessly blowing a kazoo like a kid who didn’t have anyone show up for their birthday party.
I can just picture myself sitting alone in a bar or restaurant (is that where Meet-ups are held?) for hours and telling the server, “Oh, I’m sure they got stuck in traffic. I know they’ll be here soon,” while the other employees got increasingly uncomfortable and whispered amongst themselves about how much they pitied me. Eventually, they’d offer me a free dessert in an attempt to cheer me up so that I didn’t feel like one of those basketball players who is waiting in the crowd to hear their name called at the NBA Draft but doesn’t end up being drafted until way later than expected and has to sit there humiliated while the TV commentators say things like, “You hate to see this happen.”
See? I told you that I considered it. If there really is interest from my audience of readers in this area in having a Meet-up, hopefully someone will just put it together and then invite me once it’s all set. I’d totally go and probably have a lot of fun, but throwing a party for yourself is odd, especially if nobody shows up.
