Our very own lurkalot will be appearing on Good Morning America (ABC) this Tuesday morning!!!

She is appearing on a segment about people whose lives are changed by another person and she will be reunited with the person who changed her life many years ago. I know most of us work and won't be home to see this but many of us will want to record this for later viewing.

No word on whether Diane Sawyer will be doing a 'Special Segment: Ass Rash' but we're all hoping, of course. Don't forget to set your DVRs (or whatever) for this historic moment.

I'd appreciate it if people would bump this thread tonight so the maximum number of CUers can see it. :)

Good luck, Lurks, hope it goes well.

It's daytime TV, so no rash-shots, please. :p

This is completely legit and above board. About a bazillion people wrote into the show about this topic and they selected a few to do stories on and our lurk was one. :)

Very cool!! Any idea as to what time it will be airing? I could catch the first hour before work if it airs then. Otherwise, I'd love to see a tape if it can be provided (assuming Lurk is okay with us disseminating it).

Public domain .. so not much our lurks can do either way.

Lurks, don't f**k it up. It's all over the interwebs tommorow. :D

Is Good Morning America code for Jerry Springer?

Now I have to block ABC on my TV.

At least someone get her a CU t-shirt or suggest a CU shoutout. And plus ten points if she works the words "day thread" or "woot" into the conversation. Plus twenty if she mentions JB.

Congrats lurk. Have a good time.

The segment will be posted on the GMA blog later that day (I assume). I don't know anything about specific times. I'll just DVR the whole thing and fast forward until the relevant moment.

Okay, that made me laugh!! It's a challenge that I think she just has to live up to. I know if I were going on national t.v. I would most definitely at least work in a day thread mention!

Just pretend to sneeze, Lurkster. "Ah...Ah...Ass Rash!!" And then Diane will say God bless you and then you, with tears in your eyes look to the camera and say "God bless JB."

And star wipe, and we're out.

Seems like a story book ending.

No references to CU, ash rash, but I thought maybe Freeper would be on. Her "angel" had the same first name as Freep or at least I thought it was the same. The furnace repair guy was here at the same time and kept talking while I was trying to watch it uninterrupted.

It was a nice piece. She did greyt, was proud of her.

She was poor and unpopular during high school. Dropped out early. Two years later she got into college. Made a friend of a BMOC, Steve. He stood up for her, gave her confidence. She lost weight (looks real good), went on to get her nursing degree, and pop out a kid ( you knew that). Steve left college after his freshman year, never to see her again. He is now a VP of an unnamed company.

Yeh, I teared up.

And skipped over one of the most pivotal and life changing periods in her life, ass rash '08. Very disappointing. The video is up at the GMA website.

Also, mega props for Lurk for being that close to Diane Sawyer without vomiting. Well played.

I'm curious, I didn't see any "Obama sucks" buttons or t-shirts. What gives? You failed us in that respect.

Is Steve a Conservative?

You are something and don't ever forget it. Wow, we now know a celebrity. Seriously I was impressed at how you revealed so much about yourself. That shows much confidence in yourself.

Probably many folks can identify with not being part of the "cool or popular" kids. And understood completely your remark about all the women who tried to be your friend when the handsome Steve was your pal. My two cousins went to high school with me. One was a year older, the other a year younger. Both were the captains of the football team when they were seniors. You wouldn't believe how many girls tried to be my buddy, thinking I'd intro them to the cousins. (And I wasn't one of the popular kids in high school---was one of those earnest academic students).

I was so impressed with your poise and how you carried it off. Did you have the little bug with you? Wondered if Freeps noticed that his pic was on national tv. :D

just got off the phone with freeper (its the bug's big six bday) a friend of his called and said "hey your ex wife is on tv and a picture of you was on there too" and so he watched it on the website. I left the little bug at home with a sitter, didn't want to have to worry about her and put her thru the hustle and bustle and traveling. Besides, she is a little miffed at me, she wanted to be on dancing with the stars, so didn't understand why mama couldn't pull some strings there.
I guess all the years of public speaking, comedy improv and public service announcements for march of dimes paid off, I wasn't that nervous, although I did have a few twinges when they told me Diane Sawyer wanted to do this one herself! My poor friend was a nervous wreck though he said as soon as he realized who it was, he relaxed, and you can see that smile of his shining again.

That little six year old bug (tell her happy birthday) has big plans for you. :D She'll probably be your agent.

Didn't know that you did comedy improv. You really did seem like a pro there and were more authentic next to Sawyer's saccharine sweet, cloying delivery.

I'll pass on the birthday wishes, she's been getting phone calls all night, kid is more popular than I am!
I used to get called on a lot to do speaking for small groups/meetings when they couldn't find a last minute speaker. Then of course my staff learned this, so now get requests at odd times for odd topics.
