    Well, honestly the twins' arrival has kept me off the boards for awhile, but Brad is helping out more, so now I'm getting caught up!

    As a child, I was in a Debbie Reynolds TV special.
    Now, if you google my name, the first hundred hits are a famous European porn star. I guess that makes me infamous not famous

    I'm not really famous but I did watch them film a movie many years ago called "The Seduction of Joe Tynan" at Library of Congress years ago (it's about politics) and there was a cute blonde actress that seemed really nice and good-I figured she would quit acting after a while a get a real job and I was right--her name is Meryl Streep (I can't pick winners in other fields either). And there was contest to get the most military library patrons in a group photo for a library convention contest and there I am right in the middle of 80 Army flight students (of course we won-but we didn't have a camera when 143 showed up last week). And years ago when the World Cup was in Baltimore I went with a friend of mine and her hunt--one of the guys that was dressed like the a business man went back stage to the warm up ring with us trailing behind in our jeans and warm jackets and paddock boots-everyone else got stopped and turned back but because he was so confident and just walked right in we got to stand right next to the warm up--I felt very special then, and the rest of the hunt club was very jealous that we got a front row seat and they didn't. And when I had the house fire (it's all good now and wasn't my fault) I had my name in the paper with a picture of the damage-I didn't know so many people read the local paper. When I was at another military post they had a local tv channel that was broadcast only on post, and I did a short interview about the library-I was afraid I wouldn't be able to say anything and the second they said go I couldn't shut up-after they showed it people would run into me, point and say "You're That Library Lady"-it was kind of funny watching people try and figure out where they knew me from. And when they had the Army Be All You Can Be commercials I was in the background of one shelving books-before they showed it on tv they fired the advertising agency and I am doomed to being anonymous again.

    At a horse show about eight years ago, I got my picture taken by someone from a local horse magazine (Horse News, for those of you in NJ) and it wound up getting published! I still have it and it's hanging on my wall. (Nedless to say, I look adorable.) The only problem is it's a picture of me riding without gloves...

    ETA: I was told I rode like Mclain Ward. Does that count?

    No fame to my name. But my cousin's band has a bunch of recording companies, like Roadrunner, interested in them so maybe they'll be famous someday and I can then be famous by assocation.

    My biggest claim to fame is getting a kiss on the cheek from Alan Alda.

    I was on a few episodes of Sesame Street when I was a wee one. I sang the Alphabet Song with Big Bird.

    Default nobody knows I'm famous

    I'd like that line more if I didn't have to attribute it to someone else.

    I was in a picture in Practical Horseman a while ago. They did a story on our chapter of Horsemasters and had a picture of some of us doing a quadrille clinic. Really hard to tell it was me, much easier to recognize my horse. So the person in that picture is famous (right?)--it's just that nobody knows it's me.

    When I was a kid I did a bunch of commercials and a few episodes of Law and Order.

    I got annoyed when my agent kept calling while I would be at a horse show or at the barn, so I told my parents I didnt want to act anymore. Everytime one of the Law and Order episodes are on, I still get people asking if its me or not.

    Oh and my partners first cousin is Mark McGrath from Sugar Ray, that kinda counts.

    My "fame" is entirely in Houston. Child: birthday party on TV "Kitterick's Carousel" or something like that. Years later my chamber music group won our competition and were invited to play on TV "Dialing for Dollars" ie Marvin Zindler's show - MZ being the news personality that busted "the chicken ranch" in Texas - prompting the movie, "Best Little Wh*reHouse in Texas" (starring Dolly and Burt). I often wondered if anyone stayed tuned while we were playing - I don't think Locatelli would have been amused. To redeem myself -I later played the famous (?) Bosendorfer piano in John Hill's house ("Blood and Money").
    Now THAT was a music room. (and fab piano). Somehow the speakers from the stereo were in the walls - I played a concerto - and the "orchestra" was a "music minus one" or such - recording - that accompanied me. Real cool. Of course, John Hill's murdered wife played by Farrah Fawcett - was horsey - saddlebreds - ie "Beloved Belinda". As an aside, I went to a prom (not mine - his) with FF's cousin - same teeth - and predictably he is now a famous dentist in Houston. I sold my grand piano to buy my first horse - never looked back! Driving by "himself's" dentist office I often wonder - what if..........how many horses could I have now?

    I was on the front cover of a well known, nationally published horse magazine in the 90's as a wee one with the welsh ponies of course.

    Just recently my little hunter pony was featured in a new nationally sold professional motocross film. My brother and his friends are well known motocross racers here on the east coast and they do very well for themselves. They were all recently featured in a video that is now being sold nationwide.
    They thought it would be funny to get my brother all dressed up in complete motocross gear (helmet, chest protector, boots, pads (EVERYTHING!) and get him on the little pony and pretend he was doing starts and racing around the yard like he was riding a dirtbike. His friends also took a spin since they had never been on a horse. Needless to say there was special thanks to "Lily the Pony" and myself for helping out. Needless to say the entire segment is hysterical. Thank god the pony isnt afraid of "walking moon-men" in motocross gear.

    Naw, celebrities use made up names all the time!

    Wasn't John Wayne's real first name Marion? And Cary Grant had some hideous, fugly name to start with too.

    So no darlin', your use of a pseudonym doesn't make you any less famous.
    The plural of anecdote is not data.
