another starstruck fan

Story of my life. I can't go anywhere, (and I mean anywhere) without being recognized and approached by my public. This is the life of an Uptown Girl, I get it. But it doesn't mean that I'm immune to the pressures of my role as the most famous New York socialite. Once in awhile it'd be nice to simply blend in- to be an 'everyman', one of the little people. A girl can dream.


Friday night I went out to a birthday party for my dear friend across town followed by another social engagement downtown. I do leave the Upper Eastside on occasion, don't be so surprised. The quickest way to get from place to place was the subway, so I gave my driver the night off and dove right in to this underground adventure.


On the subway I was noticed right away of course. I even happened to bump into a fellow celeb. How refreshing, right?!?

Here I am with Scott Adsit of 30 Rock, and my friend (another Uptown Girl). Turns out Scott was pretty excited by the encounter and wanted to take a pic with us.
Here we are walking and talking in the subway station. I gave him some advice and lent him a few of my jokes. I do keep a few jokes and words of wisdom up my sleeve for emergencies such as this. I predict that, as a direct result of our chance encounter, Scott's career at 30 Rock will soar to even higher heights. Obvi. I'm pretty much a good luck charm.


But, I'm not gonna lie... meeting this funny comedian man was not-so-secretly the highlight of my eventful and fab weekend. Also, Scott is better looking in person than on the show. Cute. I fell in love and I told him so. But, alas, he is out of my self-imposed age range and his train was clearly not on it's way to the Upper Eastside. I think we all know what that means.

Love it! Oh Uptown Girl! How DO you manage such an exciting and crazy lifestyle?????

Laura said...

I hope to see some of your jokes and such on 30Rock soon, I'll pay closer attention now.

Love the show, love the guy. TOTALLY wish I was a famous Uptown Girl, too!

Uptown Girl said...

Amber- me too!! It was uber exciting for all involved!

Lovey- I'm glad you asked. I surround myself with ppl I love and it helps me get thru. At least that's what I told People Magazine.

Laura- Expect a cameo at some point. I'm sure they'll try to get in touch with my people to get me on the show now that they have an "in". You know how that goes...

DeNae- come visit me, I will see what I can do to make your dream a reality.

Maria,

You crack me up!

So are you Blair or Serena, that's my question! :-)

Jenny May- Blair or Serena?? Those kids are my proteges. My apprentices. If only I could get them to be a little nicer... they still have a lot to learn from me.
