alan cumming knows i exist (what more is there to live for?)

It appears as though Alan Cumming (if you don’t know who he is, I am sad for you) has linked to a post I wrote for my travel blog, in his post, “How to End the Myth of the Ugly American” on Kenneth Cole’s Awearness Blog.

You know what this means, don’t you? That someone will likely find my lifeless body in a heap on the office floor this afternoon, because my life’s purpose? Fulfilled.

    OH.MY.GOD.GIRL! I think this might still be pregnant lady karma coming around. You so rock. I know I was a groupie before but I am officially re-groupifying myself. All bow to the almighty Fish!

  • I am de-lurking just to say That. Is. Ridiculously. Awesome.

  • Carrie

    so. freakin. cool.


  • Amy

    that is so cool. I just died by association (I read your blog, I love Alan, therefore Alan & I are connected somehow).

  • fantastic!! i raise yet another beer to you!! although i love reading your blog for the witty writing and keen observations, i am finding that more and more, you are giving me reasons to drink (in a good way!!)

    OH HOLY BEJEEZUS! I love love LOVE Alan Cumming! Not so much for his quirky film roles, but for his absolute GENIUS in reinventing the emcee in Cabaret and Mack the Knife in Threepenny. Too many people don’t know who he is, or even worse, think he’s just that guy from the Mask 3 or whatever. You must see him on stage in person to truly appreciate him, but he is one of my absolute favorites.

  • MissAnna

    You are such a cutie! I wish you were living in Seattle instead of Texas–you’d be such a blast to hang out with!

  • Jamie from Seattle

    What’s greater than great?

    That the blog Alan wrote and linked to yours was insightful and thought provoking.

    I agree. He’s well-spoken, and I thought he took a unique and sensitive approach to the topic. And it doesn’t hurt that I agree with his politics.

  • LOLA

    OMG I LOOOOVE LOVE LOVE Alan Cumming!!!

    everything he does, even his character in Spy Kids! (yes I said spykids!)

    So how many people did you email?? I would send out mass emails daily!

  • Q

    Kirk Cameron once called my house (true story) and I felt the same exact way. Well done :)

  • christine

    yayy!! thats awesome!

  • jen

    Does that mean he knows that I love him? If not can you please advise him, post-haste? What do you mean you’re not on speaking terms? What about our many many Scottish babies? Does he know about those?

  • red that is so awesome!

  • amysview

    i once had my computer rigged up to blip alan’s voice saying “dollywood” (yes, the dolly parton theme park) every time i got a new email. it was just that fantastic.

    very awesome, indeed!

  • My proudest day was when a poet whose poem I praised commented over at my blog. Aaaaahhhhh! I still swoon. Congratulations!

  • Adri

    OMG. Awesome fish!

  • How cool is that? Time to find a new life purpose, quick. Dream big–clearly stuff is happening :)

  • Susan

    Good Lord, girl – I’m going to start telling people about how I started reading the girl that Alan Cumming (who I LOVE) also reads, but I was here FIRST!

  • Alyssa

    So cool! Congrats!!!!

  • Seriously nice! Now you have to go out and buy his fragrance:

  • Mui

    stunned silence

    mouth agape



    you rock fish :)

  • Yep. That would be enough to make my month. And I would so keep Alan Cumming as a gay husband if he would let me.

  • Suzie

    wait–I read you, you were mentioned by Alan…’s almost like he was here this afternoon and had tea with me!!!


  • M

    Lovely! Methinks this calls for a serious game of 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon…or Tom Selleck.

    I believe it’s safe to say, You’ve Arrived :)

  • AHHH!!!! THAT IS SO RIDICULOUSLY EXCITING!!!! HIGH FIVE! I also just did a toe touch and kicked my face in celebration of you. YIPPPPEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

  • very cool!& i’m headed to his site to check it out!! ;)

  • Katy

    I love that moshizzle assumes this is ALL ABOUT ME!! YES, the world revolves around me and is all the better for having Alan in it!

  • Anonymous

    And before anyone gets upset, we should probably clarify that Katy is the pregnant lady, from whom pregnant lady karma would have come.

  • Megan

    That is very neat!And I enjoyed his post.

    Q– where can I hear about this call from Kirk Cameron? :)

  • Wait, is he an American citizen now? When did that happen?

    I love me some Scotsmen.

  • jess

  • jess
