The Word of the Day Is...

I nonchalantly went to happy hour last night at a local establishment. What I was about to see was something incredible...

Pee Wee Herman (Paul Reubens)


Jack White (The White Stripes)


Manuel (An older designer who does all of the country star's rhinestone style jackets)

I still cannot believe it. Apparently Jack White lives here. Pee Wee has a sister who is a prominent lawyer in the area and is also a professor at Vanderbilt's Law School, who knew right?! I must find this lady and ask her what it is like being Pee Wee's sister. Sure, embarassing at times, but still AWESOME.

I really really wanted to get a picture with Pee Wee but I'm a firm believer in not harassing famous people because I am sure it gets annoying. I can't tell you how many Saturday mornings I would watch Pee Wee's Playhouse with my Dad. And the Movies! Who can forget the movies?!

Ah, memories. Even though Pee Wee has somewhat of a perverted past, he still reminds me of my sweet childhood when I didn't have a care in the world and for that I will always love him.

Anyway, back to last night. The craziest part about the evening was not even seeing them but the fact that they are all friends. Please see below pictures so you can see what I mean:

I mean really? These guys are all friends? What a trio. I wonder what they talk about, I imagine the conversation goes something like this:

Pee Wee - Hey Manuel, do you think you could make me one of your awesome rhinestone studded jackets for the new Pee Wee Herman movie that I am working on? (He really is working on one btw)

Manuel - Si, I would love to.

Jack - Oh! Oh! I want one too! But mine has to be in black, white and red because those are the only colors I wear on stage.

Pee Wee - Cowboy Curtis would probably like a jacket too, just make sure it is jheri curl proof.

Jack - Yea, and make one for my ex-wife/sister whose surname I took and now use for my second marriage and our children instead of my actual last name which is Gillis.


Yea, I don't know. I have a bit of an imagination. Anyway, seeing Pee Wee was way more awesome than any of the other famous people I have seen (including the likes of Faith and Tim and my favorite - Dolly)
