The famous onion dude

Conan O'BrienMy friends know John Freyer as “the onion dude” because, among other items, I purchased his Vidalia onion via eBay when he sold everything he owned during his All My Life For Sale project. John will be appearing tonight on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” to discuss the project, the book and the people he met when he travelled across the country to visit his stuff. Other guests include Paul Rudd and Marisa Tomei, but John obviously gets top-billing. Tune in or set your TiVos.

    You didn’t even e-mail me about this? What if I didn’t read your (rarely updated) blog? GAH! Good thing I caught this in time! Conan’s not on here in Houston until the middle of the night – so it will be added to the Tivo!
