People quote me?

It always comes as a surprise to see myself or something that I've written quoted. It's a surprise because I'm always amazed that anyone's listening to anything I say or reading anything I write.

Amanda Congdon has been keep us abreast of her ousting from Rocketboom on her personal blog I commented on one of her blog postings:

"When life gives you lemons, you go to Secaucus."

If you look down that posting you'll see at about the 16th comment I say:

Hey Amanda - when are you and Andrew going to appear on Jerry Springer?

Then two days later (today) I'm reading's 10 Questions for Amanda interview and see:

One of your readers on your Unboomed blog asked when you and Andrew are going to appear on Jerry Springer. Is it really that bad?

[Laughs.] I don’t think we’ll be doing that anytime soon, but our relationship is clearly pretty bad.

Now here's the thing. When I'm not being serious everybody's interested and listening and worst of all they remember everything I say. But if I'm being serious, do you think that anyone pays any attention to me? No way!

So, what's the solution?
