Okay for REAL some famous people...

Okay... I actually DID meet some famous people in New York. It's inevitable you are bound to run into them!

While in the park I ran into Captain Jack. He was just frozen there... and had a box in front of him that said, "Feed the Box"... so I snuck this picture of him, cause I didn't have anything to FEED his box...


Next up is Minnie Mouse! Can you believe that I was there buying my Broadway tickets to Shrek the Musical and turn around to see her!!! I wanted a pic with her but she was holding a Santa Christmas sock that apparently wanted to be fed also with every pic taken... yea, so ummm... snuck this pic of her.

I walk around the corner wishing I had a few dollar bills to feed the sock of Minnie when I run into this gem... ELMO!!! Now who is jealous???

Don't play hate guys... it doesn't look good on you. When the kid in front of me asked for a pic... well to my utter disappointment and surprise I found out...

That Elmo has a backpack that needs to be "fed". SIGH... So I had to sneak another pic of him...

K this person is REAL... she really IS famous. I went out to watch my niece in the New York City Dance Alliance National Competition. If you know the world of dance... or watch So You Think You Can Dance, you should recognize Sonjia.

HA! hahahaha! HA! I AM A GIANT apparently! Like Sonjia's earrings are HUGE on her, but it looks like they would look perfectly normal on me!?! ( Not my best picture, my chin is even at an awkward angle, and I'm hunching my shoulders because one tends to do that when they are around short people, but I was nervous, not gonna lie)... and if you didn't laugh at how much taller and BIGGER I look than her... than you can no longer read this blog! I forbid it!

And I'm just saying... she pretty much is the size of a leprechaun... just saying...

***How long do you think I stood by Sonjia while she was hugging and consoling a dance friend to get this picture???




P.S.
I am babbling about Make-Up s.e.x. over at Real World Venus vs. Mars today... so this is either a warning to NOT read it... or read it so you can give me some advice!!! :)

Ok, so really it was more like being the paparazzi than meeting them. Except for Sonjia! LOL

Can't wait to read more about your trip!

Sonja! I would have fed her...uh...MOHAWK! Oh yeah baby! She is da bomb! (do I sound hip?)

As far as feeding anyone else? I would shoved my half eaten hotdog in their sock.

AUBS!!! Girl I have missed you... where you been??? :) Yes I was the paparazzi... until I became a Giant and took a pic with Sonjia! :)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Chief-DUH... Good idea! Why didn't I think of that??? I thought they wanted something green that the government spends to much of???

But w/o the earrings, she's six-foot-three.

Zu said...

Lotta hungry characters in the city huh?! Lol I frequently sneak pics of performers so I don't have to fork over my much needed change. *hangs head in shame*

haha! You're a giant!!

I can't believe you met Minnie Mouse. My daughter hates you now.

Annette Lyon said...

Holy cow--Sonjia! (Sorry, babe--Elmo doesn't count.) But I'm a fan of the show, so that would have been a way cool moment for me.

the feed the sock is just crazy, I'm sure glad I don'thave to beg for $$, yet.

That chick is pretty hottt and the short girl has something on her pie hole?
What is that?
Did she use to be a fish? Looks like the line broke once they got her hooked!

I once met Goofy. It was amazing.

Homer and Queen said...

You have to feed for photos? No way!!!

Malea said...

Hmm, I could only imagine how my good 'ol jolly green giant of a self would have looked against her. There would be no amount of sucking in, standing straight, and chin positioning that could fix a pic of me next to a leprechaun.

Oh, a famous relative. Very cool!

I was quoted by CNN today about Jon and Kate. Is that my one second of fame? Haha.

Love the NY pics!

Cherie said...

Love the NY pictures - it is such a fun place!
Those earrings are crazy big - but the picture of the 2 of you is so cute!
Glad you are having fun!

T said...

that's it - when I finally visit New York I'm going to wear a backpack that says "feed me for a photo" and see how many suckers tuck in a few bucks and snap a photo with me all the while trying to figure out where they know me from :)

and now, I'm going to have to make the time to hang out at Mars and Venus - it's been a crazy week and I don't get any blogging in before dark - is it wrong to want to quit my job just to spend more time blogging?

April said...

WOW! A pic of Elmo! I am impressed! J/K!! Our family is hooked on SYTYCD!!!! I love the choreography that Sonjia does! I didn't realize how short she is.....or are you standing on Elmo?

Youngblood4ever said...

Way to go on sneaking the pics. That is just SAD when you have to pay to have your picture taken with Elmo and Minnie. Where is the little-kid love? What do they expect? The kids to hand over their hard-earned piggybank $$$?

Just Jules said...

I didn't know times were that tough on Sesame Street. Plus I didn't know it was a burb of NY - now I know... or did Elmo hitch all the way to NY figuring the begging was better?

Ashley said...

That's awesome that you met Sonja! What a cool trip!!! Your posts are so entertaining. :)
