A question for Monday.

Many years ago I worked with someone who says she told a number of people at Hollywood parties about a story idea she had for a feature film. A few years later a film that bore a striking resemblance to her story was released and became famous,

I also know someone who says he used to talk about starting a Star Trek franchise that was remarkably similar to Voyager when he was on chat/fan sites in the early 90's.

I was once told by a local playwright that the lead in his new play was being written with me in mind. Unfortunately, it was discovered I am a better SM than I am an actress before the script was finished and I was not asked to audition.


what is your dubious brush with fame?

Some of my father's friends owned and ran a blues club in the town where I grew up (The Shaboo Inn -- points to you if you've heard of it). Dad actually held a second job there for the first three years of my life, just so he could get in free on his nights off. But even after he quit he would often drop by to visit and hang out with the staff and the artists.

He did this on my fourth birthday; he was looking after me for the afternoon and we stopped by so people there could say happy birthday to me. And, Dad says, Arlo Guthrie was the act that night; we stopped by in the afternoon, Arlo heard everyone wishing me Happy Birthday, and wished me Happy Birthday himself and then serenaded me with the theme to "Sesame Street."

Or so Dad claims. I, however, remember absolutely none of this.
