Today, before teaching Freshman Seminar today, in the USA, my friend downstairs in the boss's office told me that today she had seen a picture of me and my dog at Barkus yesterday in USA Today today. The picture was taken by Patrick Semansky and distributed by the AP, and here it is with caption:
Michael Homan marches with his dog Kochise, a west highland terrier, at the Mystic Krewe of Barkus Mardi Gras parade in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Sunday, Feb. 15, 2009.
Every now and then even I am taken aback by my good looks. After seeing such a good looking man and his talented dog, no doubt the world will soon be heading this way to learn more about Michael Homan. . . or maybe they'll be more interested in Kochise. Either way, the narcissism that is the blog continues to grow, or more accurately:
[(narcissism + internets) x (good looks ÷ smelly dog) + circumference of nemesis' head] x (AP/USA Today)=blogger
