Livin' the Dream


Well, I guess I'm going to have to start a brand new life list now, considering I just crossed off the number one item on my current one.

I propose "Try Every Cheesecake" as the next goal.

Also I realized that my role in this amazing moment was a bit like Baby in Dirty Dancing.

I carried the watermelons!

Only in my case: I watched the purses!

HAHAHA

I love this! Now, when am I going to get to meet Brian Williams? I must work on turning him into my pen pal.

You know, the two of you look...related. The facial features are really echoing each other. Make of this what you will.

Um... I have no idea who this is. But now I really want to know. I feel like I should know. That information is hovering somewhere in my brain, but it is not surfacing.

When I saw your picture on Twitter I got so excited for you and showed my friend I was with. She looked at me like I was nuts, like "who is that lady and why do you care?" Blogland is weird but awesome. Also, Yay you!

@Cassie: I'm with you...I have no idea who's in the picture with Holly, but I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that it's Evan Dando?

If it's not, then, I dunno...

You know what's SUPER inconspicuous? Totally walking in the opposite direction from the venue chatting about missed running opportunities.

YAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY!!! You met him! You met him!
You're going to need to share the details of this happy moment!

You're right, Anna. I saw the resemblance immediately!

O to the M to the G!
OMG!
Bwahahah.

Yaaaaaay for the Dando meet-and-greet!

And I totally had the same thought as Anna and newfoundlander!

You KNOW that meeting the legendarily Holly Burns Slinsky was at the very top of HIS bucket list, too. :o)

I am finding it really creepy that you guys are finding a resemblance between us -- especially since someone ALSO said this on Instagram! I do not see it at all. AT ALL! I am seriously curious about HOW you think we look similar. I mean, maybe our...hair is the same length?!

I love that this happened in my city. Not such a bad place. --also, I hope you went to the good restaurants and not the shitty hipster-obsessed ones...

Ha! Re. the resemblance: I see it in so many of the facial features. Don't get me wrong; it's not that you look like a grizzled, drug-ravaged aging musician. Rather, that you could be...his sister. It's in the shape of the eye socket, the shape of the nose, even the shape of the mouth and the chin! I mean, it's really kind of odd. Struck me instantly!

He looks like he's enjoying the encounter as much (if not more) than you are.

I also see a resemblance, primarily in the shape of your noses but also your eyes and cheekbone structure. Definitely enough to be able to pass him off as a long-lost brother!

You look so happy in the picture! I think you two look more like an uncle-neice rather than brother-sister. You look way too young to be his sister. :p

Wow - tell us more about your exciting encounter!!

25

Yea, you!! He does not look at all as I remember from the 90's! He has aged a bit, but then haven't we all!? :)

AWESOME. How did you make it happen?

You look beautiful, and Evan is aging very well. :)

Man - I almost didn't recognize Mr. Dando because the years have been HARD on him. I helped interview him/The Lemonheads 25 years ago when I was an intern at a college radio station and man - back then that was one pretty band. Not so much now.

This looks like a fantastic holiday card photo. (A friend met Bono on a beach, years ago. She had her photo taken with him, and has used that photo as her official Christmas card photo every since.("Happy Christmas from Bono and E!")

Congratulations!! I'm sure that you'll find something new for that list - these things are meant to be crossed off!!
(Definitely an uncle niece quality to the pic)

At first I thought he was your brother or something- but of course he isn't....or is he? Cue music, Dan, dan, dahhhh!
