My 15-Minutes of Fame with OK! Magazine

You will never believe this in a million years. I just got quoted. For a celebrity magazine. Which will be in this Thursday's edition of OK! MAGAZINE.

Okay, I'm going to sound totally professional here...

HOLY CRAP!!!!

I was sitting here, just called out from work for my 3rd day straight with this B word thing, feeling mighty crappy, when I got a phone call. BF answered if for me, and I whispered, "If it's for me, I'm not home."

He told whoever it was on the other end that I would be back home in five minutes, and to call back. I was livid, as I'm not talking to ANYONE feeling like hockey poot. He then said, "I think you'll want this call. It's from a magazine who wants your opinion on something. He said if you're not available, he'll call someone else, so that's why I said five minutes."

Well, I forgave him, but not totally. Even if this were a magazine, which I was sure wasn't, I still wasn't in the mood to talk.

But, curiosity got the best of me. I'd not even heard of a magazine called OK Magazine, so I looked it up on the Internet. Sure enough, there it was. But, what would a national celebrity magazine want with me?

"He found your relationship stuff on the Internet, he told me," I remembered BF telling me.

Well, hell. But I still didn't get it. I'm not famous. My name isn't Dr. Phil, and heck, I don't even show up until #6 in Yahoo search and #32 on Google search for relationship expert, so why me???

I awaited his call. Sure enough about five or ten minutes later, I was sharing my soul mate wisdom with a Ryan Smith of OK! Magazine concerning the Jennifer Anniston and Brad Pitt relationship. I sure hope I sounded like I knew my stuff. The B word takes a lot out of you. I had to ask him to repeat himself, and that really sounded dorky, but my brain feels like one big cloud, totally void of anything comprehensible.

He was so nice, though. Especially because he chose ME. Wonders will just never cease. So, my question is, does this make me famous....or not?

Incidentally, my quote will be in the Thursday, October 12 issue! Can I get a whoop-whoop?

  5. LOL, no, it was just a quote. But I'm sure they'll have SOMETHING, just what I'm not sure. I'll be first in line Thursday to pick up a couple million copies, though, lol, to find out! BTW, it's not Brad Pitt...it's Vince Vaughn. That goes to show you how much I read celebrity magazines, huh? Man, back in the day, I used to devour them...just don't have the time anymore.
