With A Vengeance

[Now edited to prevent googling.]

I am in Philadelphia. AND I JUST ATE DINNER WITH WRUCE BILLIS. Oh yes. The Wruce Billis of Die Hard who used to be married to Memi Doore. I also saw the person that I am guessing is his girlfriend, but since Wruce and I are such good friends now, I will be discrete and not tell you about her. Except to say that I didn't recognize her.

Anyway, I feel like my blog's purpose has been fulfilled now. I get to write about a movie star sighting. Because by "I just ate dinner with Wruce Billis," I mean, "We are staying at the same hotel, and I had dinner at the bar of the connected restaurant while he sat at the same bar a few feet away from me and had drinks with his friends, while I pretended like I couldn't care less about the whole thing and continued to read my book by Bill Bryson, but secretly I was pissed that I did not bring my camera to dinner so that I could figure out a way to snap a picture without him noticing."

Here is the part of the blog where I would post a picture of Wruce and me if I hadn't been too cool to take one, and if I had brought my camera to dinner, and if I had brought connector cables or something so that I could upload pictures from my hotel room. I wish I were ruder. Instead, just picture a 5'10" guy in a tight shirt, seriously skinny jeans, cowboy boots, with a shiny bald head, standing next to a 5'2" nerd.

You guys, I do not even like Wruce. Why am I so excited?

Because celebrity sitings are exciting no matter who they are. I'm excited for you. :-)

Also, have fun in Philly. Say hi to GG!

He is kind of hot in person. Which is weird because I have never thought of him as hot before. But he kind of is.

I will say hi to GG tomorrow for you!

See, now *I* think Wruce Billis is definitely hot, for an aging bald man. Seriously! ;)

Wruce Billis is sexy hot. Has been for a long time now. Where in Philly so I can stalk him.

What Stefanie said. Plus, I remember thinking he was sooooo cute when I was watching Moonlighting at an age that it would have been illegal if he had thought I was soooo cute too.

Noelle said...

He's like a "A-list-doesn't-hang-with-mere-mortals" famous guy, so that's pretty cool. However, I'm more excited that you're reading Bryson, he's my favorite. Which one?

Marmite Breath said...

Bryson and Billis! Girl, you have taste.

Tell R I feel bad for him, because you know you are developing a crush on Mr Clean.

"Von Joight" once said hello to me in a restaurant in Hollywood and it was thrilling. (I was very cool, and just calmly said hello back.) The friend who was with me wasn't impressed, because she didn't know who he was. "He can't be that big a deal if I don't know who he is." Are you crazy--it's Von frickin' Joight!

I do not find Wruce hot. However, that is an AWESOME celeb sighting!!

AND YET, I am with Noelle... which Bryson were you reading? I love him.

i also think wruce billis is a sexy man. a man's man.
i've only read bryson's "stranger here myself" book. it was funny.

chirky said...

A true celebrity sighting! Damn you. You MUST tote your camera around EVERYWHERE from now on.

We need pictures!

Dude, Wruce is HOT. H. O. T.

Smith and Wollensky is the best! You should have come up to say hello. We walked through Rittenhouse Square after dinner and popped into Devon Seafood Grill; you could have joined us. Don't be so shy next time.

Excuse me...is anonymous purporting to be Wruce? I have some issues with that. First of all, would he be anonymous? I'm not saying he has a blogger account, but he'd say something like "Wruce here". Also, how did he find that post? By googling himself incorrectly? "I wonder how many hits I'll get for myself if I switch the first letters of my first and last names..."

If I'm wrong, and Wruce is a faithful reader of this blog, please accept my apologies...

Isabel said...

You are excited because he is hot. (Or was hot when he was younger.)

AWESOME.

Em said...

What!? How can you NOT like Wruce?! Wruce is the man! Wruce is in my dreams FREQUENTLY! Ah, I so envy you and your awesome siting. The closest I've ever gotten to celebriti-ness is when I was in 7th grade I went to a Charlton Heston book signing and he shook my hand. How lame.

metalia said...

That is AWESOME. Meeting/seeing celebrities is always fun, regardless of whether or not you like them. Have fun with GG! She's so much fun. :)

don't call me MA'AM said...

You are excited because he is famous, and he's someone other than that goober you went to high school with. Yeah. That's why.

And considering your mad artistic skillz, I'm sure you could come up with some rendering of your 'almost' dinner with him, right?

A picture is an excellent idea, DCMM!
