I'm patiently waiting for my turn in the spotlight, for my Big Moment. Nothing ever seems to happen to me. I don't get on TV. The comedian never picks me out of the audience. I don't win things. I live in utter obscurity.

I figure at most I've used 30 seconds of fame by being interviewed on local TV when Reagan died. And then they edited what I said and made me look a little out of touch. :sigh:

Has anyone used the whole 15 minutes yet?

I was interviewed on a radio station in my home town when I was about...oh...seven.

Were those *my* 15 minutes? That was it? laugh

With the internet you can sustain 15 SECONDS of fame longer than what would seem reasonable in the past.

"Fame" brings more "Fame" was my point. 55 Seconds on the Sopranos lead to a fansite -interview for me:

http://www.sopranoland.com/7questions/quinn.html

Which lead, 4 years later, to a good part on a TV movie. The casting director for the movie saw the interview which linked to my website. Weird.

Cindy, your 15 minutes of fame are approaching, as your big debut as featured soloist at White Flint is only one week away.
