You guys are never going to believe this!

The warm weather inspired to walk over to Copley to buy lunch today, and I was craving a burger, so I went to B. Good. I was staring at the menu board when someone asked me if I had eaten there before. The voice sounded oddly familiar, and I turned and found myself face to face with Ryan Seacrest. (Heaven forbid I run into Tom Brady or KG...right?) Anyways, of course I couldn't help but ask "Aren't you...? and he just smiled and said "Yes." I then went on to tell him that I had eaten there a bunch of times and rambled on about the various sandwiches I had tried and the fries and whatnot. Turns out he was really friendly and nice and is in town filming a commercial. We chatted for a bit longer, and he asked about fun places to go out in Boston, and I was all "Murphy's Law in Southie is AWESOME!" (Just kidding. I recommended the Beehive.) Then, the kicker...he didn't have any plans for this evening and asked me if I'd want to meet up with him for drinks. So yes, instead of pretending to go to the gym but actually going home to lie on the couch to watch Lost and drink a bottle of wine with my roommate, tonight, I'll be hitting the town with Ryan Seacrest. Don't worry, I'll definitely bring my camera.

Tom said...

Also, kudos, Eileen - and, this is totally going to screw with people who see it pop up in their RSS feeds later in the week.

Sarah said...

Well, I was going to wait a while to say this, but it looks like Tom figured out the joke, so here goes.....

APRIL FOOLS!!!!

So now, explain why your lunch took so long. Also, Seacrest is live tonight on American Idol!

SON OF A... It's already April 2 over here, so I was totally out of the recognizing-joke mentality. You got me.

Sugarmouth O'Riordan said...

Got me too! Well done!

Frances said...

Dang it...you got me. I was like "WHAAAA???!!" Nice.

Tina said...

(i have to admit it but i fell for it too) my first thought was, aren't you taller than him?? i raise my fist at you!!

Vance said...

You know he's gay, right?

That was a dead giveaway...

Mike said...

Good one! I just sent it to Jen. I don't think she'll know to look at the comments and reallize it is a joke. So be prepared to receive a frantic phone call.

Lori said...

It sucks when you get April fooled on April 2nd....I'm boycotting this blog!

eileen said...

I love that so many people fell for my little prank! I guess Ryan Seacrest was just ridiculous enough to almost be believed. If I had said Clive Owen, you would have all known it was a big, fat lie.

carmen said...

I fell for this for about a couple of minutes. I pulled back in my chair, starting to get excited, mouth open, lungs filled with air, eyes wide open, arms in the air. I was thinking this had to be the most amazing event ever in your life and I was thinking you needed to make this post a little bit more impressive and dramatic. I paused and thought, "Wait, what is the date of this post?" (today is April 4th, I'm a bit slow in reading my blogs). "Noooooooooooo April 1st? Noooo, it's not a true story! Eileen, you A-- H---!!!"
So, me, too...another one fell for it totally. Damn
