"IT'S BIG MAMA, IT'S BIG MAMA!"

What are the chances that my one shot of hitting the BLOGGING BIG TIME has been thwarted by the fact that Big Mama happened upon my blog and read MY LAMEST POST EVER! Couldn't she have visited and read this one, or this one, or this one? I have potential, I can be funny, I'm a little bit interesting...I might be worthy, but probably not. It is probably just as well because I'm not sure I can take the pressure.

But seriously, I am a little awestruck by the fact that Big Mama knows I exist! I am such a dork! I'm just hoping I handle it a little better than the last time I had a celebrity run in...

Take a little trip down memory lane with me to The Acropolis in Athens, Greece. Circa 1995. I'm in college touring Europe on a Humanities trip. We are there for the lightshow and I'm walking down the aisle to our seats and I hear "the voice". It should be permanently etched in your memory. It was Fran Drescher from "The Nanny". Now, I didn't necessarily watch this show a lot, but I knew that voice. The funny thing is I have always been one of those people who was like, what's the big deal with celebrities? I don't get all the fuss. But Something unexplainable came over me that day and I just started screaming "IT'S THE NANNY, IT'S THE NANNY, IT'S THE NANNY!!!!!" and pointing like a complete idiot. I still cringe at the thought. Up to this point, she was pretty much incognito and I'm sure she will be forever grateful to me for blowing her cover because after my "outburst" she suddenly had a swarm of people surrounding her asking for autographs, pictures, etc. Which by the way DID NOT include me because I was too mortified to approach her.

Big Mama, if you are reading THIS post, please know that I will try to be a little more DIGNIFIED in our interactions, but obviously I can't make any promises.

We have arrived! Thank you Big Mama for starting this semi-frenzy of fame. I am sure it is just a 15 minute blip in history. But hey, I will take what I can get. Alana, you are the woman. I would have loved to seen you with The Nanny.

I stumbled on your blog from Chilihead's carnival. I feel the same way about the celebrity bloggers. I would be awe struck if any of those awesome ladies stopped by my blog.
