Seriously Freakin' Famous

Being a celebrity is hard y'all.

Well not really, but I got a minute taste of celebrity last night. Oh, and by that I don't mean that I saw someone famous and licked their face like a puppy (although there are a bunch of special and noteworthy exceptions that I would break the 'no lick' rule for, but I digress...)

Morgan was out with a bunch his workmates last night so I had a night out with Mikey (The Lovely Ex) and another friend Dave for a session of recreational beverages at the Green Park Hotel. During the course of the evening I noticed a man looking at me quite frequently, then towards the end of the evening he came over and asked me if my name was Andrew. He introduced himself, and amusingly (and apt for this blog) his name was Andrew also. As I was wracking my memory for a context to where I might know him from, and why I didn't recognise him, he filled me in.

A blog reader, who recognised me from this blog.

Happily, I can report that he confirmed what I always suspected about you all. You are sweeter, funnier and downright better looking than your average blog audience.

Actually he was sweet and it was a nice experience, unexpected but nice.

No no scary that: "You are sweeter, funnier and downright better looking than your average blog audience." ; )

The Other Andrew said...

Hah! Well, next thing you know I'll be having public meltdowns and almost dropping babies. Could get scary. I'm just a person, you know?!

Who'd have thunk it : )

As the observer to TOA's newfound fame, it was quite an amusing (and slightly surreal) moment. The fan Andrew was very nice. The only downside (at least for me) was that the name "Mikey (The Lovely Ex)" made no impression upon said fan...

Andrew The Fan said...

Mikey I'm not sure what kind of impression you wanted your name to make on me :) However, it was lovely to meet you all.

wow! and now the fan posts on the post about the fan!

thus, nature balances itself ;)

TOA, there's plenty of bubs around to practise almost dropping. as long as it's almost... heh.

This is what the kids call "meta", right?

That's awesome. It's why I wanna buy freakgirl merch, so I can randomly run into someone else who reads her.

PS I NEED to hear what "y'all" sounds like coming out of your mouth.



Also, is it just me or are these word verifications becoming onerous? And no, I don't need bifocals. Bitch.
