I had my interview for the feature about my being a grammar vandal for the Boston Globe yesterday — and it was AWESOME.

The writer and the photographer were great — loved them — and we walked up and down Newbury Street as I pointed out several grammar errors and discussed the best ways to fix them, in between discussing how the English language is going down the tubes in America.

The best part of all?

Whenever we stopped at an error, the photographer would take several pictures of me talking and discussing the errors. At one point, a CROWD FORMED and watched!! I felt like a celebrity!! I could imagine all those people thinking to themselves, “I wonder if she’s famous.” SO cool. SO cool. I could do that all day, every day and not get tired of it.

I’m very excited for this article. I’m crossing my fingers that it will turn out as described, but in the volatile world of journalism, there are no guarantees.

At this point in time, the article is slated to appear in the City Weekly section on Sunday, July 15 (yep, that would be the BOSTON SUNDAY GLOBE!). Try to get your hands on a copy. Note that they only sell that section in papers sold in Boston, Cambridge and Brookline. (I’ll have to make the 244-foot trek over to Cambridge to buy my copy!)

I’m very happy and excited about this, as if you hadn’t noticed. I had such a great time with the writer and photographer. I can’t wait to see the finished product!
