Adventure Bowl
I'm Famous Here & At Taco Bell

I've always wanted an 8x10 glossy photo, like the kind famous people have, but of me, hanging in a restaurant. It doesn't even have to be a fancy restaurant. I could actually get quite excited to see myself featured at the Taco Bell right by Warner Bros.

There's only one problem: They hang their pictures quite high and while I'm not opposed to standing on a table top ("Excuse me, yeah, could you move your Chicken Gordita over just a smidge so I can crawl on top of your table and drill my photo up here?... No! Well, then I can't be responsible for falling ceiling."

This week, I saw my dream coming true when I picked out of the Adventure Bowl: "Hang Your Pic Up at a Restaurant." Now the hard thing is, I don't exactly have an 8x10 of me. Then I realized, that's what Kinko's is for! One hour later and about twenty bucks in printing fees (I got kind of picky, afterall, this picture of me is going to be immortalized FOREVER), I was off to this cool Mexican place in Hollywood.

I got to the restaurant and sat down in a booth. First problem - why are there so many damn people in a darken restaurant on a Sunday? Don't you people have anything better to do?!?! Second problem - a lot of the photos up there are nailed in. That doesn't make my job impossible, I'm strong and I come with tools. But I need less people here and someone to shield me.

I'm surprised I had that good of sense to know when an Adventure should be put on hold because by now I had two margaritas and after two margaritas, I start to think that I am invisible. I really don't want to be in the crime blotter because I was seen yanking down a picture of Burt Renolyds and replacing it with mine.

Now, even, though this Adventure has to be postponed until I can bring a few friends with me, it's not a total loss. I did some recon work that told me not to come on the weekend and help me scout the best booth to sit in that will get me the most optimal placement of my photo.

Now the big question is - do I want to be by Jake Gyllenhal or Farrah Fawcett???

This blog is dedciated to patience.

I have been to that taco bell - it is my favorite place to take people (ie:tourists)before a taping at WB. I hope you get your picture up at the cool Mexican place!

LMAO!!! You are too funny! Have you tried just walking in with huge sunglasses on and your wonderful fake LV purse and asking them to put it up because you love to eat there and are "famous"? They would probably do it and spare you the risk of being featured in the crime blotter section of the paper. And if they don't then you can always do it yourself ;)

Too funny! I have a picture in my head of you standing on the table banging that nail into the wall, while people all around you have their meal.

I was also dying for a new entry from you... guess what? You're already famous!

You guys, rock! I'm trying to round up a few of my girls so we can cross this one off the books ASAP.

TO ALL OF YOU: Thanks for hanging in there these last few crazy weeks! :)

You have to totally be next to Farah Fawcett! And make sure that your friends bump the waitstaff with a full tray or spill an entire bag of M&M's to keep them busy and distracted.

I can hear the MI music even now ...

Hi! I have an idea--what if you get that super-sticky permanent double-sided tape and use it to hang up your picture? You could go in with the tape already on the back and just peel off the backing and stick it up when nobody is looking. That way, no loud hammering to give you away!
