    You should be relieved he was so humble. I was thinking Lindsay Lohan had taken over your hotel bar and was throwing shot glasses at the bartenders trying to cut her off or something.

    Nothing like rubbing elbows with the quasi-famous. I once got bumped to business class and ended up sitting next to (you put it perfectly) a not totally famous, but definitely recognizable actor.

    He was really tall and he woke up as I was straddling him in order to sneak off to the bathroom. I am pretty sure I was drunk. I did not ask him for an autograph.

    Jesus, I love you – I laugh out loud every time I read your stuff. I’d totally stalk you on an island. I feel it’s only fair to warn you of that right now.

    The best way to avoid all this, of course, is to never go anywhere. Ever. Like me.

    (Geez, did that come out sounding as pathetic and sad as I think it did?)

      Not at all. I’ve had strangers on Twitter say “You left the house??” when I posted something about Mike and I going somewhere so… I’m right there with you in the boat! (in the middle of my living room)

    My daughter (a grown-up, sorta) texted me the other day to let me know she was standing RIGHT IN FRONT OF RYAN GOSLING (caps are hers, not mine) at the restaurant. The most famous celebrity encounter I’ve had was Red Skelton. FML.

    Oh man, here in NYC we’ve raised ignoring anyone famous to an art form. But to have to interact with them repeatedly like they’re normal people who just happen to staying at the same resort as you? Ugh! Do they not realize that we need our space?

    I would do the same thing. Not to brag, but I pride myself on my ability to pie glow.

    I would totally stalk you and Mike and then we could try to interpret both of our husbands mumbling. Half the time I swear my hubby says random crap just to screw with me.

    ENUNCIATE!

      I’m the mumbler in the family, but Mike gets me back doing that “suggesting I said something something ridiculous” bit, which drives me CRAZY.

      Me: Open the door.
      Mike: You did dope with a whore?

      Me: AAAAAAH!

    Pie Glow and Bees like nectar were alone well worth the read. Funny as a mofo. Tammy does the mumble thing where not even she can hear herself too. Great stuff;)

    This is the truest blog post ever – celebrities make you watch such a line because you can’t be perceived as stalking!

    On a slightly different twist, a friend of mine went down to Mexico on a much needed vacation and was totally crushed when Sophia Vargara showed up celebrating her 40th. So much for feeling gorgeous and pampered next to that vixen….she spent the whole time sucking in her gut!

    Who the crap was it? It’s killing me. It’s also killing me that I couldn’t go to freakin’ St Barths without 4 spykids who would totally give away the covert mission. So jealous!

    LOL…I have totally been in that situation, or worse, had to interact with someone, and in my head, I think, “Are they going to be insulted if you don’t know them, or do you think that they’ll be relieved you’re not bothering them?” Ugh…
