I’m Famous!

After All, how many people can say that they had an article written about them in the New York Times?

The article will be running in this Sunday’s edition, but its available now to read online.

Anyone wanting autographs will have to wait until I do an official signing in a city near you. Autograph fees will be $100 per signature, unless you want me to sign your boobs, which I will selflessly do for free (weenies cost double).

When you think about it, this kind of exposure was way past due for me . It was only a matter of time before I went from local celebrity to WORLDWIDE phenomenon.

Sorry guys, I gotta go. I have Brad Pitt on the line begging me to be in his next film, and if I’m late for my date with Megan Fox, she gets upset (she’s so needy like that).

mo.stoneskin said...

You're the weird-looking one with the camera right? ;)

Slyde said...

zibbs: Im the stapping young man in the back left table... Andrew.

Mo: now, is that nice? :)

Slyde said...

p.s. not ALL the way back left.. im the one in the camo shirt..

Bruce said...

Hmmm, Slyde, I can see your geekiness factor just went through the roof. Better get a cattle prod to beat back the legions of babes that will clawing to rip the clothes off your back.

On another not, I am responsible for what I call "Game Night" here in my neck of the woods. Every 60 days or so I post a game and location (usually an out of the way bar or watering hold) for friends to show up and play some rather obscure Adult Board Game (last month it was called "Gender Gap"). Suffice to say, we always end up rolling on the floor. It is much better than video games or watching television.

BWAH-HA-HA-HA-HA=HA!!!

Ahem...sorry. But this makes my day in so many way. I especially love the "thinker pose" you take in that picture. Love it!!

Wait...Bruce? Adult games? Rolling around on the floor? WTF?

Mrs. Holly Hall said...

James said...

I recognised you straight away Slyde. But now your real name is out!..

I don't like Megan Fox. But, I must admit it is an improvement from when you were seeing Madonna.

mikeb302000 said...

Slyde, That is absolutely cool. I'm totally impressed. In the NY Times! Fantastic.

Raechelle said...

Well, congratulations! And it's nice to know that you promise not to forget us little peeps...I feel so special!

Shania said...

Well my goodness, MR. DiGregorio. Congrats are certainly in order!

Faiqa said...

Snort. I think the person who wrote this article was calling you a geek. It's all in the subtext. :) Congratulations.

latindog said...

I still can't believe you told the reporter to call me a "disarming backstabber."

Michelle said...

Congrats!!! You are indeed famous now!

Love the photo too!! But it is kinda geeky!!!

I'm just saying!

elizabeth said...

Right on Slyde. Now Survivor will hunt you down...

Kaylen said...

Woohoo....that is cool! I am a board game fanatic too and think there should be many more groups like this!!

Chris H said...

Alrighty then.. ANDREW.... I am thinking... the New York Times must be running outta interesting newsworthy things to print.... playing games is just not.... newsworthy mate! Fun for you obviously.. but really?

~The South Dakota Cowgirl~ said...

Cool that you live somewhere you can do that. I think I might have to think too much to play board games like that! Congrats on the notarity!

Meghan said...

Wow. You ARE famous.But you better still sign my boob as Slyde, not Andrew.

Elise said...

I found you!

I mean I read the comments and looked back and found you.

You can sign my boobs if you like? :)xx

Lemur said...

Hmmm...this is like fruit of the poisonous tree, no? First mention (ever) of LIBO, if I'm not mistaken...

What will the world come to next?

(oh, and so I don't lose my streak of busting your chops, I will point out the game you won was completely dice rolling) ;)

2abes said...

was that the thinker pose or the i can't believe its taken that guy so long to complete his turn pose? you made the times without committing a violent felony..congrats!

Momo Fali said...

Brad Pitt wants me and...oh, wait. Were we supposed to be talking about you?

Bina said...

If you sign my boobs, can I charge YOU? LOL

I have no idea which one you are and if your name was even mentioned in this article.

And, the only board game I can sometimes win at is yatzee.

I feel so stupid.

Heff said...
