And the False Fact Is...

Well, I made it through April Fools Day relatively unscathed.

Except for the fact that I didn't know that Dolly Parton was on American Idol last night.

And even though I have a "Season Pass" for all things Dolly on my dvr, I apparently have a dyslexic, "Corky from Life Goes On" TiVo and it recorded an hour of The Power Rangers instead of Ms. Dolly and the Idol kids.

But my brother called last night to say his TiVo picked it up and he would send me a tape of the episode soon, so all is well.

Especially after I throw "Corky the Misfit TiVo" out the window to teach it a lesson about screwing around with my Dolly watching.

However, the TMI Tuesday bonus question had a lot of people guessing and I wanted to start the day by letting everyone know that, of the four things about myself, the one that was false is...

2) I was an extra in and can be seen very briefly in the Chicago-based film While You Were Sleeping.

I was an extra in the movie, but I screwed up one of their takes so horribly (long, long story) that I am nowhere to be seen in the picture. Not in the background. Not sinking in the Chicago River. Nothing.

But I do have Jinx's underwear, I did... ummm... "earn" some nice reviews from the Chicago Sun-Times, and even if chewing children's aspirin 24/7 for years as a kid didn't do it, I am allergic to aspirin. So there.

I love that Alanda and Philip knew which one was false. I can hear them saying to themselves...

"Please, if he was in that movie, he'd have
'As seen in the role of "Man at Hotdog Cart" in "While You Were Sleeping"' tattooed on his ass!"


And I would.

While we have LOTS of catching up to do, I've put "why stephen F-ed up While You Were Sleeping" on my list of topics.
What was your part? "Man on El gawking at nearly run over Sandra Bullock"? or "Token Big City Fag Walking Past SB while Talking to Boss at Chicago River Walk Filming point that is nowhere close to any office these folks would work in a la ER"

I'll see Jinx at the Flesh Hungry Dog show on Friday night...would you like me to return the underwear to him? :-)

Polt said...

Wow...all that would be tattoed on your ass? Well, either you ass is a LOT bigger than I orignially pictured it, or it'll be in real teeny tiny print.

And I feel left out...I don't even know who this Jinx person is....

HUGS...
