Received this by email this morning:

Dear Mark:

We are creating a TV pilot about blogging. We want to bring this phenomenon of personal expression to television for the very first time, and have been scouring the web for appropriate sites. Your web site seems like a potentially great fit for the show.

If you would like to be a part of our pilot, you can do so by submitting a video that encapsulates you and your blog.

Whatever you want to say and show in your video is fine. The key is to capture the essence of your blog in video format, and if it's interesting enough, we'll include it.

If this is something that you want to participate in, please go to our web site for more information, and follow the instructions:

Thank you so much.

But I don't know anyone with a digital video camera. And they probably sent this email to every single blogger in the world. It also says on their website that the more outrageous your video, the more chance you've got of appearing on the show. This will be ideal for Raymi, but what could I do? Read out a sex scene from my new book? I haven't written any yet. But maybe...

Oh, I sorted out my archives problem. Just before Butter confiscated the iBook. And just after I beat her at tennis.
