I Do Hang With VERY Famous People

Funny thing, I watched that show on SyF last night, Helix. It was okay, but there were plenty of things about it that really bothered me. Like in that I'm-not-sure-that's-how-a-crisis-response-team-would-behave sort of thing.

Actually, I got that feeling a whole bunch of times during the show.

BUT I tweeted something along the lines of this:

Sure, it might not be my very finest effort, but it was my snarky way of saying that while I enjoyed the show, it was overly serious. I don't know if there was that Inception like BWWAAAAAWWW sort music playing in the background the whole time or not, but there might as well have been.

Anyway, as you can see, one of my many fans favorited it. Yay for me. I don't get enough of those. But since I didn't recognize the person from the photo. I wanted to know who it was that found me so delightful.

As you may be able to see, it was someone named Luciana Carro. That means absolutely nothing to me. But okay. I figured I'd feel honored just the same. Still, I clicked one more time to see what her bio said.

And Boom!

Oh, it's the actress from the show... and from Battlestar Galactica... and from Falling Skies. And yes, I looked at her photo several times and I'm still not sure what character she was on the show, but I don't care. Other people knows who she is.

And of all the people in the world, she decided that my tweet was her favorite in the whole world.

Wait, you can favorite more than one tweet, can't you? Dammit. Still, I'm running with it. My brush with a small time celeb.

Anyway, I have another post up at Indie Writers Monthly. Check it out if you're bored. Otherwise. I'll see you soon.

Can I get your autograph?

I'm trying to figure out who she was on BSG. I never watched the other two shows.

This is the year of twitter for me... as soon as I bother to set up an account.

That's a supercool get. You are a twitter winner in my eyes (not sure what you win, probably some amount of bitcoins, whatever they are).

Moody Writing

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That's hilarious!

Jo said...

Its a coincidence too I think. Nice to rub shoulders with the famous. I have never been on Twitter, not likely to I don't think.

stu said...

It's weird, that moment of remembering that the people involved in something might actually be reading what you write.

Donna Hole said...

Way cool. I saw her on BSG and Falling Skies. Super actress. I'd be happy if she favorited my post too.

It's always nice when the gods take notice of us little people.

Tony Laplume said...

You've made it now, Rusty!

Rusty Carl said...

@Briane - Absolutely. $20 for the signature, you provide the paper. And I couldn't figure out who she was either.

@Andrew - And I see you already have. That wasn't so hard.

@Mooderino - If I get bitcoins my son will think I'm a hero. He thinks they're the greatest thing that's ever happened. Even though I've had to explain to him what they are about 4 times.

@Alex - I thought so.

@Jo - It's the world's loss then. But we'll still have your blog at least!

@Stu - It is weird. I count on anonymity when I talk about pop culture. I might call out a Spielberg movie next, just to see who responds.

@Donna - Yay! I swear, I can't place her to save my life. I'm glad you know her.

@Pat - Yes, I feel like I should be able to monotize the moment somehow.

@Tony - It has been a long, hard struggle. But the view from up here is amazing.

Andrew Leon said...

It wasn't hard in the same way it wasn't hard for Lou Costello to talk about baseball.

Rusty Carl said...

@Andrew - Who?

Andrew Leon said...

The guy on first base!

Rusty Carl said...

@Andrew - That's what I want to find out.

Andrew Leon said...

That's what I want to find out!

Trisha F said...

I guess I should look her up on IMDB and see who she was in those shows.

I love Falling Skies - one of my current faves.

Heather Holden said...

Wow, an actor actually favorited one of your tweets? Pretty cool!

Maurice Mitchell said...

Twitter is a funny thing since it let's us connect to famous people more directly than ever before. Congrats Rusty!
