One of my favorite movies is The Jerk (1979) with Steve Martin. There are many parts of this movie that I adore. One in particular is when the new phone book is delivered & Navin R. Johnson proclaims his excitement loudly: “The new phone book’s here! The new phone book’s here! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity I need! My name in print! That really makes somebody! Things are going to start happening to me now.”
In fact, I’m pretty sure I used that in my high school yearbook as one of my ‘senior quotes’. (If you haven’t yet seen The Jerk & have been pretending to me that you have, now is the time to come clean.)
I received a perk from Klout.com recently that gave me 100 free Mini-Moo cards. I went to design town, wrangled some of my favorite fonts, threw in a Dolly Parton quotation for good measure & waited for them to be delivered to my doorstep. Lo & behold, they are petite & just perfect for where I’m at. I feel a bit like Navin R. Johnson. Check out this legitimacy, folks! Things are going to start happening to me now.
