Yes, I'm Gonna Be a Star

There was an e-mail today in the Houston Metblog's list saying that a reporter from the Houston Chronicle was looking for people on the northwest side of town to talk to.

I e-mailed Kim (another Kimberly; we've been all over the place lately) and she immediately asked for my number. She called and basically I'm going to be in the paper, along with two other bloggers (probably) for a piece about blogging, why's it popular, what's my blog about, yadda yadda yadda.

They are even sending over a reporter tomorrow (have got to get my office cleaned before then) to take some pictures. My mom told me I should get dressed up, but honestly, I wasn't going to. I figured it's a story about normal, kind of geeky bloggers, so I'd just wear jeans and a t-shirt (maybe even my favorite TWoP one).

So, what do you think? Dress up or don't dress up? How I wish I had one of those "I'm blogging this" shirts so I could be *really* geeky.
