KCAs and Celebrities!
Pardon the huge delay in blogging, but I have been in Los Angeles at the Kids Choice Awards! The picture here is really, really blurry because it was taken with my cell phone, but that's ME AT THE KIDS CHOICE AWARDS! I am thirty years old (ack, let's call it twenty-ten), and I have dreamed for two-thirds of them of going to the KCAs. Finally, this year, thanks to my good old "day job", I got to go.
The best part of all, though, is that working for Nickelodeon got me into the super-fun after-party. Rock-climbing, dancing, catering by swanky chefs and not-as-swanky-but-still-very-yummy Burger King, and celebrities milling about (a few I remember: The Naked Bros. Band, Devon Werkheiser, Emma Roberts, Nelly, Chris Tucker, and a whole bunch of tween/teen-types on Disney shows like Hannah Montana, etc., that I don't watch).
So yes, I had a lot of celeb-sightings last weekend. In fact, the entire Houston Rockets basketball team was staying in my hotel (hellloooooo up there, Yao Ming).
I am definitely not an L.A. person, but every once in a while, the brush with fame so close to Hollywood feels mighty fine. I guess that's what inspired me to write Dancing Queen. Liv, too, is a little celebri-obsessed and gets a little too close to fame for comfort.
Now that I'm back in New York, I have to go back to pretending that I don't care when I see superstars on the street (it's what we do in New York...I don't know why, but it always cracks me up). Who do you wish you could see on the street? Any dream celeb-sightings?
