I still can't speak for the Kardashians, but I've discovered my own potential route to undeserved celebrity. Virginia Living magazine is holding a "Best of Virginia" internet contest, in which anyone with a browser and a few minutes to kill can go write in their favorite candidates in various categories. I'd wandered over there to vote for ComedySportz as the best comedy club, both because it's true and because I love stuffing ballot boxes. I filled out other categories with whatever struck my fancy, and then came across one: Best Local Celebrity.
I laughed as I filled in my name. "Why not?" I thought. When I passed on the request to vote for ComedySportz to other people, I also asked them to vote for me as the local celebrity. We have actual minor celebrities around here, so it's highly unlikely to work. On the other hand, if I do somehow take the top spot, I'd say that's indicative of the fact that I am a local celebrity. If I can get the most votes just by asking a few friends to vote for me and pass the idea along, I deserve to win.
From the reports I'm getting back, I may have a chance at a few other categories, too. It seems that people have been writing me in for other categories that they've found amusing; I'm now in the running for best chiropractor, best alternative health and best chocolatier, among others. In fact, I'd say I've got rather a lot to live up to, suddenly. It's just the price of fame, I suppose.
If I can parlay my celebrity status into a paycheck somehow, I'll take the time to learn the skills I've been nominated for and validate my friends' votes. It's the least I can do.
