Real Fame

Yeah, so I had my 15 minutes.  Thankfully, they’re over now, and I no longer get weird half-familiar looks from people as I wander around Brisbane.  (Unfortunately, my dad no longer gets drinks bought from him based on the fact that’s his daughter in that ad”.)

All-in-all, it was a strange experience.  I have twlife-sized posters of myself in my hall closet.  I had people asking to have their picture taken with me.  I’ve had strangers hail me by name and introduce themselves.  All-in-all, “creepy” really is a much better adjective, and the riddance is good.

But my friend James, his fame is more of the sticky kind (and according to him, often way more creepy).  He’s on that TV show, and now!  Oh, the mileage  One of Australia’s Most Eligible BachelorsGo, now, vote for him. They’re putting an engineer up against football thugs and flight attendants!
