Wax On, Wax Off!

Normally, I find name-dropping to be rather tacky but let’s face it, being greeted at the door by Justin Timberlake is something you want to share and given the opportunity, tell me, what woman in her right mind could resist telling e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e she knows that she gave George Clooney a kiss on the cheek?

Certainly not me!

While I’m at it, I will say, The Pitts were there, although not looking as well as I had imagined. Angelina was having what appeared to be a very-bad-hair-day and Brad, well, let’s just say, Brad did not look like himself, at all! Same for Madonna. It’s true she looked absolutely fantastic at the Superbowl but sadly, this was not the case when I saw her last week. I almost didn’t recognize her! Admittedly, I was disappointed but the dazzling and most debonair, Denzel Washington more than made up for them. Yes, beaming as only he can, the crowd that encircled him was mesmerized by him.

Ah, Denzel!

The Jo-Bros were c-o-m-p-l-e-t-e-l-y adorable and even Miley Cyrus was looking her best but hats off, yes hats off indeed, to Diddy“P”  looked perfect!

Being a fan for more than one reason and, even at the risk of embarrassing my 13-year old son in public, I couldn’t NOT take a picture with Edward, I mean Robert Pattinson.

After all, he is My Edward.

I don’t always travel in circles such as these, only on very special occasions, like when I’m spending the entire day in New York City with my boy, eating falafels on Ludlow Street followed by crepes at none other than the Creperie on MacDougal. It was just after that, that we decided to spend the afternoon with the likes of sports legends, Eli Manning and Michael Jordan.

Where else but at the famous Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum can you find such a stellar gathering of celebrities eager and willing to pose for a photo or patiently receive a peck on the cheek by an unknown passerby such as myself?

Have you visited any of the Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museums?

    You had me going there! I started to think you met Justin and George! I am so naive…Great pictures though…they help sell your story too! Sounds like you had a great time and an opportunity to reverse the shoe of who might be embarrassing who?

      Ha,ha! I honestly didn’t think I’d be fooling any reader for 1-second Andy…especially with the title. You are naive! More likely, you spend lots and lots of time w/ little people! It has a tendency to blur our thinking a bit. I will let you know in another 2 years how it is w/ girls but with the boy, by the time he reached 12, even if I picked him up at school, I’m to remain
      incognito, in the car, in the parking lot so as not to alert his mates as to who his mom is! Ugh! I can’t wait until this phase is over! But we did have a great day. Thanks so much for reading & commenting, Andy!

        He’s lucky to have you and someone that respects his wishes! Good job Mom. I was rooting for you and Justin and / or George!

        Thanks a lot Andy and it would be George for sure. Justin’s just a baby. Hey, a gal can dream, can’t she?!?

        That’s right…dream for the stars!

    What a fun time! You had me wondering there for a minute, Karen, ha, ha! Being in NY and all…I thought maybe, just maybe…I’ve never been to a wax museum before-very cool! 🙂
