Well, I’ve had my brush with fame…sort of. Last night as I was indulging my current obsession with The Office (just humor me, I’m pretty sure it’s a phase) and reveling in my becoming one of the 42387 Myspace friends of Pam/Jenna, I came across several other Myspace pages of actors/characters from the show. Some of them were pretty funny, but one in particular stood out. It was for Bob Vance of Vance Refrigeration. He listed as one of his interests Angels baseball. This just so happens to be one of my interests as well. I figured I’d shoot him an email just for fun to carp about the Angels’ thoroughly disappointing season. Imagine my surprise when first thing this morning I received a reply. We both agreed that the lack of a second big-time run producing bat to protect Vladdy can’t be overlooked any longer, and that letting Troy Glaus walk was probably a mistake. In order to find another Angel fan to comiserate with I had to go to Myspace and find a little-known TV actor. Angel fans are few and far between in NorCal for some reason. Hmmmmmm. Anyway, that’s my brush with fame. I thought it was kind of a weird, funny story.
Incidently, Bob is only in two or three episodes from season two and only had a couple lines, but one scene in particular was pretty funny. He introduces himself thusly, “Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration.” to three guys individually who are all standing next to each other, to which the last one replies, “What line of work you in, Bob?” Good stuff. I tried to find a clip on YouTube but I think you’re only allowed 10,000 clips of any one particular tv show and that just so happens to be the exact number of Jim/Pam fan montages.
On an unrelated note, I dropped my MP3 player today. Now all it does is display the Creative logo and won’t turn off unless I remove the battery. Ando not happy.
