So no shit, there I was...

...working a banquet tonight at the restaurant.  It was a meet and greet, passed apps, passed drinks shindig hosted by Yahoo! for some conference thing going on.  Purple was EVERYWHERE... tablecloths, napkins, the sugar on the Yahootinis (sounds like a Star Wars thing, don'it?).  So I was a good boy and did my drink passing all evening when, at one point, I was stopped by a very nice woman who asked:

"Honestly, which search engine do you like better, Yahoo or Google?"

Now, I'm working a Yahoo! party.  I'm surrounded by people who are drinking on Yahoo!'s tab.  The more they drink, the more I make.  That alone is enough reason for me to answer "Yahoo!"  Never mind the fact that Yahoo! has been freaking AWESOME to Moron Life on their video site for the last month.  So of course I answered, "Yahoo!"  She said, "Really?"  And I nodded enthusiastically and said, "Look, I produce a sketch comedy show, and Yahoo has been absolutely awesome to us for the last four weeks.  So yeah, I really do like them better than Google."

And then she asked if she could interview me.


I figured she worked for Yahoo! so I said, "Sure!"  It was only later on in the evening that I saw the "PRESS" label on her name tag.

So towards the end of the evening, she grabbed me and we talked about Moron Life and Yahoo! for about ten minutes. 

Turns out she's a blogger for -- so we may be getting some AWESOME tech props here soon.  How's that for cool?

Right place. Right Time.
