Katie Couric, here I come!

by Jessie K on January 8, 2013

In a few minutes, I’m leaving my humble abode to bomb up to New York City to appear as a guest on The Katie Couric show. I’m kind of freaking out because a) it’s Katie Couric b) it’s Katie Couric and c) it’s Katie Freakin’ Couric, an American icon capable of tongue tying luminaries, politicians and Al Roker. This woman is a force to be reckoned with.

Read the episode synopsis here. Barring some national disaster, the episode is scheduled to air Friday Jan. 11 on ABC at around 3 p.m EST (though check your local listings).

If you’re near a TV, please tune in!

(Check out the man photo bombing my moment in the sun. Looks like his head is sprouting out of the girl’s neck on the cover.)

Well dang. I should have checked the blog today. I went to the library to attend your reading, and that’s where I found out about the Katie thing.

However, the library was hosting a meeting of the Rockbridge County Tea Party at the same time as your cancelled appearance. What a missed opportunity! A roomful of your fans and the TP comingling in the library at an impromptu after party. I would have paid for that.

Congrats on getting invited to the Katie show! I’m sure you were great. Will be watching Friday. Hope to meet you myself, sometime. Maybe when The Aryan Agrarians comes out.

Argh! I’m sorry to have missed the Tea Party showdown. Hopefully the folks at the library will let me reschedule.

You’ll be Fantastic!! if you get nervous just think of Al Roker pooping his pants in the whitehouse!!

Jessie K January 9, 2013 at 11:34 am


ha ha ha ha! thanks for the visual.

Latha January 9, 2013 at 1:58 pm


Will we be able to watch it later on line?

Jessie K January 11, 2013 at 9:47 am


Hi Latha: I’m not sure. It seems like they post a lot of clips to her website so hopefully we can watch it there if we can’t watch when it airs.

LisaF January 9, 2013 at 6:31 pm


Congratulations Jessie!! That is awesome. I will be sure to check it out on Friday; just have to figure out which channel!

Olga January 10, 2013 at 2:27 am


Oh Oh… The towels are getting closer, I can feel it!!!

I don’t have a tv, maybe you could put it on youtube sometime after it airs.

Jessalyn January 10, 2013 at 10:58 am


Woo! Congratulations! Have a blast!

Beth January 11, 2013 at 3:47 pm


You rocked!
I’m still giggling over the underwear thing.
