Not sure if you will see this…

From the MRW Water Cooler

Q: How does Discovery feel about your endeavor here? Specifically that you have a message board, and many fans have come over to post. Are they supportive? Have you had to “talk” to them?


Hi Kristi,

DCI is a big company, and I can’t presume to speak for them. I can tell you that my contacts there have been very supportive. Beyond that, no one has discouraged me from moving forward, or asked me to curtail my efforts here. On the other hand, I can’t be in two places at once, and I’m sure that there is some curiosity as to what the future will hold with respect to my virtual locale.

My hope is that everyone concerned will come to see MRW as a genuine attempt to “move the needle” as it were, and consequently, a good thing for the health and promotion of Dirty Jobs. Personally, I can’t think of a better way to promote the show, than to support the objectives of this site. If I didn’t believe that, I would have never proceeded.


Thanks for answering Mike. I think the “where” you will be is probably the million dollar question right now.

Really? I’m afraid you’ve overpaid.

I think there is a contingent of people from the Mudroom who are afraid (I don’t know what other word to use) that things will change so much they lose how they have identified with you.

There’s plenty in this world to be afraid of. My precise location on the interweb is not one them. (I’m kidding. I know it’s not called an interweb. But fake words kill me.)

Personally, I was intimidated here at first, but I am learning and having fun.

Good. Knowledge and fun are almost always in my top 10. And your contributions, wherever they may appear, are always appreciated.

Whatever direction this road takes you on, can I ask you a favor?

Of course.

When you do finally clean your boots up and depart the Mudroom, can you make it a clear departure?

Probably not. Big goodbyes feel like parades – all obvious and heavy with sentiment and pomp. And besides, when I leave – which I have no plans to do – why would I clean off my boots?
