That one time I met Katie Couric, Jean Enersen, AND Meeghan Black.
One day, I opened up my email and there was a little invite from King 5 in Seattle to go to a Fall programming preview event.
Oh, and Katie Couric was gonna be there.
So I made my RSVP.
On the day of, I got to the Seattle side an hour before I had to be at the station… so I had coffee at the home of the Velvet Foam.
And VELVET it WAS…
Ya know, since we’re so close now…
I kinda look like a deer caught in the headlights.
And poor posture.
Shame on me.
Aaaanywho… I may or may not have been too amped up on coffee.
Actually I was. I had lots of coffee and not enough food and I was pretty shaky.
I tried to get my signature self-shot of my friend Jean (Jean Enersen) and me…
That Jean was so sweet. She was super-concerned about my failure to nourish myself. She insisted on finding me food. I insisted she NOT find me food. I practically had to grab her by the arm to keep her from tracking down a roll for me. Bless her.
Seriously. I should have been embarrassed but I was too shaky to remember to feel embarrassed. I told Jean I would get food as soon as I left. Since she was going to be interviewing Katie (remember Katie, my friend…) in the next 5 minutes, I felt her time would be better spent not finding me a roll.
But before Katie and the roll-seeking incident I met Meeghan Black too – the host of Evening Magazine.
She was very nice to me even though I basically told her I wanted her job
and to watch her back.
I don’t kid.
I want to host Evening Magazine.
And the Oscars.
DREAM BIG OR GO HOME.
Why was Katie Couric in town???
Katie is spreading the word about her new show - Katie. It premieres September 10th. It seems Katie is looking forward to a gig that will give her the chance to not only talk about issues (from technology to teens to health and wellness and cancer)… but it will give her a chance to connect with people in way similar to her Today Show days.
When Jean Enersen asked about what things her show would cover she said, “I’m 5 miles wide and 1/2 inch deep.”
I had to laugh… that’s how I feel about my blog.
Seriously. A Jenny of all trades master of none.
Unrelated, Jenny On the Spot would be a GREAT name for a talk show, no? Or a REGULAR SEGMENT on a talk show.
Also at the event were some pretty rad bloggers.
So I think in this picture I was all, “Hey! Is that Dennis Bounds?!”
In any case… it was a fun morning. There was no guarantee given that we’d get to meet Katie, so it was a treat to have had the chance. Basically the meeting went like this:
Me: Hi Katie, I’m Jenny! (I forgot to tell her I am On The SPot and such, which would suggest I am less on the spot than I would like to be…)
Katie: Hi Jenny!
Me: I see you are soeaking at BlogHer in New York next week, I’M GOING TO BE THERE TOO!
Katie: Yes I am, I’m excited!
And then we took a picture.
Alllllll glamour allllll the time.
