I had something all planned for Your Turn and then I read a comment from someone in yesterday's Random Photos about them being undressed visually by Margaret Cho. Kinda. Then I did the whole Clint Eastwood post and it reminded me of something. So, I thought to myself everyone has at least one good celebrity story. You know, the one you always tell at parties or wish you had told so people would invite you back.
So, this one was a few years ago. I think Clint wasn't mayor of Carmel anymore, but it was not too long after that. I was attending a wedding which was not one of my own for a change in the area and decided I wanted to play golf at Pebble Beach. Thought I was going to need a miracle to play. No tee time so I decided to start calling people. Didn't work. I did however show up and there was a last minute cancellation so the whole asking for favors and pulling the do you know who I represent thing wasn't necessary.
It is really early in the morning. Like 6am after a bachelor party the night before. I'm a little hungover, but not going to miss this chance. I'm just kind of resting on my bag, taking a nap while waiting to start when behind me comes the voice.
“Had a long night did you?” Clint Eastwood at 6am on a hangover. Fun. Oh, but it gets better. For the next four hours I was in Clint's group and I was basically his whipping boy.
Every bad shot I hit was commented on by Clint. It was because I had a lazy swing or I was out of shape or hungover or liberal or conservative. Just went on and on. I know he was just having fun with me, but still, after four hours it is a bit grating.
At the end of it all he did shake my hand and said he hoped we would play again. Sorry Clint. That isn't going to happen.
OK, so that story was kind of long. It could be much shorter, like this one from a few weeks ago.
Me: Hi, what's your name?
Me: You look really familiar.
Josie:Well, I used to be on Charles In Charge.
Me: Oh, you were the plain one. Damn you are hot as hell now.
Josie:Uh, yeah. Nice meeting you
See, very simple.
I also thought I would give a plug to some reader blogs that I enjoy.
Trix has a great one going with winnersusedrugs.com and her vintage porn. Nice. Seriously. Vintage porn is really fun to look at.
Jax has the funniest picture of a half naked fat guy on her site that will make you die laughing. jaxsaid.blogspot.com
Another reader site that cracks me up is gidgetgormley.com and one that scares me because I know she reads the site every day is thegrammarvandal.com
