I was! The West Coast can still catch the episode featuring me, as the unsuspecting audience member who was made a fool of on his day off!
I’ll call it the highlight of my career.
I’m sure you’re aware of this but, just in case you’re not, I’d like to let you know that there’s a man who doesn’t speak English in a sleeping bag beneath our mailboxes.
Ant Update: There are also still ants.
Did I mention I hate this place?
Anonymous asked: Daniel, did you know that if you search 'Daniel O'Brien Cracked' that 'daniel o'brien cracked girlfriend' is the first thing Google suggests? I never knew you were such a ladies man, you stud, you!
I wonder if there’s a way to say “Yes, I knew that” without revealing that I’m almost constantly Googling myself.
Anyway, yes, I knew that because one of my friends told me (you don’t know him, he lives in Canada), though I think it happens for reasons that have nothing to do with studliness. In some interview or blog or forum post somewhere, I mentioned how a lot of my life is public on the internet but how some things were kept very deliberately private. Years ago, I labeled a few bits of information as “mine,” as stuff that wouldn’t ever go on the internet. Some of it is mostly arbitrary (my birthday doesn’t appear on the internet), and some of it is more understandably personal; my relationship status is always going to be one of those things that the internet doesn’t get to know.
So when “Daniel O’Brien Cracked girlfriend” gets searched a lot, it’s not because a bunch of sexy, interesting coffee-shop-baristas are clamoring to find out if I’m available; it’s mostly internet detectives trying to find out an answer based solely on the fact that I told them they’re not allowed to know. If you tell someone they can go in any room of the house EXCEPT THIS ONE AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS, then that’s the only room they’re going to want to see.
