Spotted!



"Would you mind putting my purse into the overhead bin?"

 She handed me a heavy Prada bag and I tried to use it to immediately shield her from seeing the crimson in my face. It was Rosemarie Dewitt. I have a small arsenal in my mind of my favorite actresses that I would like to meet, but I NEVER ACTUALLY THOUGHT I WOULD HOLD ONE OF THEIR PURSES.

Of course, I was really excited about being on a five hour flight with her -- and OF COURSE, no one else I was working with had any idea who I was talking about. Basically they just look at me like, "Why are you getting excited about the lady with the brown hair sitting in a seat."

At one point, she was not in her seat and by my incredible deductive reasoning, I decided I would take my time setting up my cart right next to the lavatory so I could be ready to say something profound when she came out.

She walked out and said, "Excuse me."

Then I was silent for a moment, and said "OH I'M SORRY."

AND THEN SHE WENT TO HER SEAT AND I JUST DID NOTHING.

I DIDN'T SAY:

I LOVED YOU IN RACHEL GETTING MARRIED,

OR

HOW IS YOUR HUSBAND RON LIVINGSTON?

OR

CAN I HAVE A HUG.



Also, did anyone else watch Project Runway the season that Anya won? Because she was on that same flight, too.

  1. I would have been squealing right along with you. Your coworkers just don't get the importance of indie films and reality fashion competitions.

    1. THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING.

      I guess in a way it worked to my advantage, because at least we weren't ALL clamoring for her attention. Not that I successfully got her attention... but you know ;)

  2. Seriously, how did you not trip over yourself and "accidentally" land in their laps? Oh my so sorry that damn turbulence has landed me in your sweet little lap. Can we take a picture while I'm conveniently here?

    1. For some reason I get so shy around them! I know they are just people, but I think I mostly just try not to bother them because I am supposed to be working and be "professional." Also, I would have really considered throwing myself on Rosemarie but she is so petite and I probably would have crushed her...ahahah

  3. Hi! Longtime reader, first time commenter! I love this. I actually had a similarly awkward experience with Ron Livingston, ha! I saw him in a bar and wanted to talk to him but also wanted to appear cool and aloof, so I walked past him, bumped into him and said "excuse me." And then walked away. SMOOTH! I can't believe you kept yourself together!! - Liz

    1. THANK YOU FOR EMERGING FROM THE SHADOWS! I'm allowed to say that in jest because I am the definition of blog lurker. I just looked at your blog and LOVED the picture of Liz Lemon in your header. Your most recent post reminded me I have to catch up on Nashville from this week. Hahahahaaha I LOVE that we have met them both and completely failed in every sense of the word to make them find us charming or endearing. MAYBE WE'LL ONE DAY HAVE ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY?!!

  4. I feel like being a flight attendant is the perfect job for you because you can use all of your random pop trivia along with your general politeness, people skills, and love for turbulence in one go.

  5. She might slap me if we ever met, because of some of the things I've done to her husband...

    in my head.
    (It's sad, I know.)

  9. Glad I'm not the only one to freeze up at a celeb sighting. Alicia Keys came to my small private university to film a music video a couple years ago and I totally froze when I walked by her. I regret not belting out the lyrics to all her songs in a crazy medley, but then that would've made me look crazy. :-)

  10. Do none of your coworkers watch United States of Tara??? I am aghast. I like that she apparently got a pass on the whole asking the flight attendant to stow your bag in the overhead bin for you. ;)

Don't go chasing waterfalls. Please - stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to.
