I’m not an idiot… I know you all love the “look who I’ve seen lately” posts. So here’s one… it’s pretty jam packed:
Last Friday I was at Cha Cha Chicken in Santa Monica and some actor was in front of us in line. This guy is the definition of “generic actor who always plays someone stoned.” I’m not kidding. I kept thinking he was in Dazed and Confused but I can’t find him anywhere on IMDB. I’m also pretty sure he was on an episode of Friends. Update: upon further research, I have no idea who the hell we saw at the chicken stand. We know he was someone, but we were all too chicken (puns!) to ask him what he was in. So it’s going to remain an unsolved mystery until he pops up in another show or movie I watch. And by the way, the guy were were thinking of was Kyle Howard, LC’s boyfriend, and the episode was “The One With Joey’s Award.”
So since that post doesn’t count for anything… let’s get to the more interesting info:
A few days ago I was riding in the elevator at my work where there are several different businesses. As I was riding to the lobby, the elevator stopped to let someone on. I recognized the man so I politely said “Hey” as any nice southern girl would, but it turns out I have never met this person and only recognized him because he’s all over the tabloids. It was Lindsay Lohan’s father, Michael.
Anyone who knows me can testify that I have a thing for wanting to help and nuture people… make them “better,” whatever you want to call it. I can say that about 25% of my desire to come out here was to find 1) Britney and 2) Lindsay to befriend them and given them a dose of what sane people act like. Unfortunately it hasn’t happened yet! Drats!
Wednesdays are always hoppin’ at Las Palmas, so I went with a friend from TCU at the end of September. We both weren’t drinking (well, maybe a drink) so it was a great night for people watching. One of the people I was especially thrilled to see was Mark Salling. He had his little mohawk going again and didn’t really talk to anyone. And he was smoking. Buzzkill.
It’s always interesting seeing people from shows you like… it’s like seeing a dog walk on it’s hind legs: bizarre. PS: Can anyone confirm that he’s been kicked off the show? I’m getting all kinds of pissed with Glee this season.
Speaking of Glee, a few of my TCU friends have moved out to Los Angeles and that’s been absolutely heartwarming for me! Feels a little more comforting to know that I have some Fort Worth friends out here. Long story short, one of the friends had a birthday dinner and when I showed up Cory Monteith was there. At dinner. Just hanging out. Not a big deal?
Actually, it wasn’t. Very nice and down-to-earth guy. I didn’t get to talk to him that much, but he introduced himself to me, which sounds normal, except that most guys out here in Los Angeles literally won’t speak to you because their big fat egos make them think that’s the proper way to treat people (hint: it’s not). Most of them think they’re famous so they don’t bother with introductions or engaging in conversation. Pathetic but true. He seems to be pretty level-headed and picked up the entire table’s tab! What a nice guy, right?
I can only hope I run into a Kardashian sooner or later! Love me some Kim.
