So normally I try to keep away from the personal posts—you don’t know me!!! However, this week has been a little bit of a letdown, pop culture-wise, anyway. I’m sure you’re wondering why I am not blogging about the epic government shutdown, but the answer is I just don’t care. The only way I would have been affected is if they kept the national parks closed. But they are now reopened, so Congress can try to stall the Dems out for as long as they want! (as a side note, I am terribly appalled that many federal workers are out of a job while the people CAUSING the problem are still sitting high on the hog…but I’ll say no more on this subject)
My OMFG moment of the week is MUCH more cool than a gov’t shutdown. I MET NICK OFFERMAN!!!!! And I do not mean that I simply saw him, I MET him. He shook my hand, introduced himself, we had polite chitchat, and he remembered my name for the next three days. I should probably let you know that I work as a concierge in a luxury hotel, where Mr. Offerman and the rest of the cast of Parks and Recreation stayed during an on-site shoot. Let me just say, he is capital A-mazing! He is nothing like his infamous Ron Swanson. Instead, he is sweet, kind, and very soft-spoken and laid-back. What a pleasant surprise and utter delight. I’ve never been so excited to work in hospitality in my entire life! As a side note, I also met Adam Scott (who seemed very confused by life, but in an incredibly endearing sort of way) and saw Amy Poehler. She is much tinier in every way than one would imagine. She is 5 foot tops, and maybe 100 pounds soaking wet. And she is another example of a laid-back and personable celebrity. I wish all the other stars who cross my lobby would be so friendly….
BUT HE REMEMBERED MY NAME!!!!
