I would have celebrated Stephen Colbert Day by eating some Americone Dream ice cream and watching his show, but (a) you can't buy the stuff around here yet and (b) I tape the program for later viewing. Besides, I was busy "working" on some freelance stuff. And by "working," I think we all know that I mean "uploading my iTunes library to lala.com so I can make it available for trading."
Anyhow, thanks to my Google alert for Stephen Colbert, I was informed of a variety of news articles promoting the event or promoting other Colbert appearances, including
- Who Will Win Colbert Look-Alike Contest?
- Oshawa Prepares for 'Stephen Colbert Day' but Comedian Will Be a No-Show
- Oshawa Serves Up Sillyness for Faux American Right-Wing Pundit Stephen Colbert
- BookExpo Speakers Include Alan Greenspan, Stephen Colbert, and Ian McEwan
Heh. I keep typing Colber (without the t) because I'm saying it to myself in my head as I type. At any rate, now I'm trying to figure out when I'm going to visit my sister in NY and when we will head to NYC for a few days. On one hand, it would be cool to see people I know who are going to BookExpo in NYC, but on the other hand, I think The Colbert Report and The Daily Show are usually in reruns the week of Memorial Day, and it would be even cooler to see the show in person. But it really all depends on my sister's schedule, so we'll see.
