Rich and Famous and Not So Famous

Me and the Hamburglar

This weekend I met a celebrity. Yes, I really did. A famed figure since childhood. The Hamburglar. Robble Robble. This was one of the not so glamorous moments for the Hamburglar as it was a 105 degrees out and I can only imagine what it was actually like to be in that costume. I kinda felt bad for him, until I was reminded of the fact that he liked to steal burgers and I don’t want him to steal mine in the near future!

This got me to thinking…hmm, there have been a few other celebrities that I’ve met that would be fun to show you…and I might add some of these are celebrity impersonators, some are not. I just thought it would be fun to show both.

Here I am with a Colonel Sanders look-a-like in downtown Louisville. He actually charges for pictures so we had to pay him a buck.

four score...
I swear, I don’t wear this shirt all the time! Anyway, here I am in Nashville with Honest Abe. I remember yelling, “Hey Abe, can I take your picture?” I think it embarrassed my sister. Heehee.

Last year I met a TV icon…Candace Cameron. I was so nervous having to ask for a pic, but I totally idolized her as DJ Tanner on Full House. How could I not?

This past year at CHA, I got to meet Candy Spelling. She made sure I covered up my name tag with her book.

While there I also met famed crafter Carol Duvall. I grew up watching her on the Home show!

And the always fabulous Brini Maxwell.

me and the weinermobile
The Weinermobile made a stop in Lexington a couple of summers go. It doesn’t get more celebrity than this! I was in dog heaven!

I guess I’ve met some other famous people, but eh, I don’t get all built up into a tizzy over it. They’re people too! I get more excited over the kitschy character ones like the Hamburglar anyway. Heehee.

Hope you have a great Monday!

Until next time Swellions!


Why didn’t I buy this shirt?

Hot dog shirt

My friend Carey and I went to a really cool vintage store in L.A. last week and came upon this stunning shirt. Needless to say, if you wore this you WOULD get noticed. I think it is hilarious and definitely a conversation starter. How can you not love a skateboard riding hot dog? I’m pretty sure it was like $25 bucks. The thing about those vintage stores is that someone has to go out seeking the unusual/cool shirts from yard sales and Goodwill finds, so they can charge more for the uniqueness. In fact, I found this neon New Kids shirt that I totally bought at a flea mall back in ’90/’91.

Shirt sleeve
And check out the sleeve. How random and very Mr. Potatohead!

Shirt back
The back is amazing too. I would have never thought to design a W out of hot dogs. Hmm, I think I see a great design in my future! Ha.

Oh, and since I’m on the subject, I’m no stranger to Oscar Mayer, I met the Weinermobile a little more than a year ago!
