Ah, Fame

Remember when I posed for this picture, wearing the "Barrister's Wig" and doing my best Queen Victoria impersonation?  It paid off, people.

I received this email today:

"I came across your wonderful blog while searching for Queen Victoria lookalikes on Google.  Myself and two colleagues are producing a book called Forgotten Lancashire, a spoof local history of the County of Lancashire in England.  This requires a picture of a very poor Queen Victoria lookalike, and we would love to include your picture in it (it would only be about an inch high, unfortunately!).

Do we have your permission to use it and, if so, to whom should we credit the picture?"

Who could resist the chance to appear in a spoof history book?  Not I.  Look for me (one inch high) at your local bookshop.

I continue to be amazed at how all of this comes about. That strangers actually cruise the internet looking at strangers blogs. Where do they find the time? Love it, please remember the little people after you are in print.

weird isn't it? But that's how people get their info now. And I will definitely not forget all the people I stepped on on my way to the top.

you are KILLING me! Now you just have to find a poor Albert to pose with!

I'm sure I will be able to find some poor befuddled English Gent to pose w me. I mean, they have fake Elvis in Vegas, why not fake Bertie in London?

You have been on fire lately! Love that you will be published.

Pia said...

Might I just point out that not only is she getting published, but she's stolen my photo credit. I will be suing her for her Barrister's wig... I think it's a win-win.
Mom- photo credit means person who took the picture not person who is in the picture you big goof ball!
