Things I am bad at #1: Famous People

22 Jan

Last night, after accidentally taking a 5-hour post-Happy Hour nap (shut up, I had a lot of wine), I woke up at 2am in my apartment in a state of delirium and thought, “Well fuck. I was supposed to go out tonight.”

After a flurry of texting, I decided it was a good idea to head to a party at a new club in Soho called W.I.P. that is based on Andy Warhol’s factory. (So, it’s pretty surreal to begin with, but even more so when you arrive, sober, at 3am after first mistaking it for a clothing boutique elsewhere in Soho also called W.I.P. and wandering around clueless in the snow for 15 minutes. Lots of people in sunglasses. Also, maybe, bats?).

Finally, I found the club and the person I had come to see, whom I shall call “Almost Unreasonably Attractive Gentleman.” He and a friend of his were hanging out in front of the bar, and when I walked up, he handed out shots for the three of us. I gave AUAG a hug, palmed the shot and then turned to introduce myself to his friend.

“Hi, I’m [OneBad],” I said.

“I’m Lance, nice to meet you.”

*we take shots*

Then I proceed to hang out with these people for another 15 minutes before some of Lance’s friends show up.

“Hi Friend1 and Friend2,” I say. “How do you know this unreasonably attractive gentleman and Lance?”

“Oh, well, AUAG we met at [place of business redacted]. He and Lance have been hanging out forever, and we knew Lance since before he was in NSYNC so…”


At this point I whip my head around and realize I have been doing shots with Lance Bass.

Will I ever get better at recognizing celebrities when they are right in front of my face?

I think not.

Also, a 5am snowball fight happened. And I made a snow angel in the middle of the street in Greenpoint.

You people love me.

        So, how was Lance? Did you ask him about his astronaut dreams?

    He wants to be an astronaut? He’s gonna have to let those tips grow out. I don’t think they allow hair dye in space.

      He tried to raise like a billion dollars to go into outer space with the Russians. Damn girl, Current events circa 2006, much?
