Those are great Kara! I never learned how to knit with 4 needles. :(

I love the open tips and I'm sure my son would love it too. Guess I will have to peruse the upcoming Christmas craft shows for some.

I have an IMDb page, so, uh, that means I'm about six clicks away from...Kevin Bacon? :lol: But to answer your question: Famous? Unlikely. Infamous? Possibly. :wink:

I love how loosely "Fame" is defined around here. :lol:

If you use a self-service machine in a public library in Surrey, England, you will see photos of my hand. These pictures appear on the screen to demonstrate the right way to issue, return or renew items.

This is my favorite example of fame so far!

I believe that I am the only Arielle Lipshaw in the world, which definitely makes me famous. It also makes it really easy (perhaps too easy) to Google me. :D

I'm 'The one who makes those gorgeous chocolate mushroom things*.' I also got called a goddess of baking, which was very much appreciated since I'd spent three days getting three tins of biscuits and two of mushrooms ready.

*Chocolates shaped like mushrooms - they contain no actual mushroom.
So little space, so much to say.

Of course I Googled Arielle. :) You just have to love the Internet:

That was on the listing of the Librivox audio recording for which you read the narration. [chuckle]

Many years ago (nearly 40yrs!) I was interviewed on Yorkshire Television on a programme called "Calendar". The interviewer was the late Richard Whiteley (a charming man) and his co-presenter was Austin Mitchell (now MP for Great Grimsby!).

Richard Whiteley:

Before that I won a dictionary (second prize) for a letter I wrote Radio Times!

Those are my only claims to any fame (my 15 minutes in total?).

LOL. I wish! Maybe I would actually be famous, if that were the case, instead of just internet famous. :D

My dad used to go to the same pub as Richard Whiteley. And my grandma used to babysit Julie Andrews. You might say that being related to someone who once knew someone famous doesn't count but, if so, you clearly haven't been watching any UK reality TV programmes.

I'll see your UK reality TV and raise you (actually lower, in standards) US reality TV! :lol:

OK here is my claim to fame. I once fired Pamela Anderson. I worked in a bookstore in Victoria BC and she worked for me. Worked as most loosely described as work. (Did I phrase that correctly?) Some people may not like me for that, but I certainly felt better after she was gone.

From Wikipedia:

In April 2005, Anderson starred in a new Fox sitcom Stacked as Skyler Dayton, a party girl who goes to work at a bookstore. It was canceled on May 18, 2006, after two seasons, although some episodes had not been aired.


Wonder if that's where the idea for the show came from. I note they canceled the show too.
