This story may not be amusing, but it was just kinda weird to me. Please keep in mind that all of this happened within a 48 hour period. But first things first:
10 years ago, I was an assistant for a comedy writer who had a development deal with Universal TV. When the deal ended, we were both out of a job. But she quickly got staffed on a sitcom on NBC. She took pity on me, and tried to get me hired as the writer's assistant.
I went in for an interview with the Show Runner. He didn't seem too nice. Long story short, I didn't get the job. It turns out, I was up against the Show Runner's babysitter for the gig, and big surprise, he gave it to her.
This was a crushing blow, because a writer's assistant job on a sitcom is a huge deal. First, you get to make a bunch of great connections. Second, you get to learn how making a show works. And third, and most importantly, many times you will be allowed to write an episode.
The Babysitter got to write an episode.
And from the connections she made, she got hired to be an assistant on another show and wrote an episode of that as well.
All the while, I scrambled to get a shitty job at E! and was basically fetching coffee for people who weren't even doing real television.
This was 10 years ago and I haven't heard about the Babysitter since.
Okay, put that aside for a second.
The other day, I was watching the show "Episodes" on Showtime. That's the show with Matt LeBlanc playing Matt LeBlanc. There's a woman on there who plays an actress who is the costar of the show within the show. The actress's name is Mircea Monroe.
During this episode, I remarked to myself (cause I talk to myself now because I'm old) that she had spectacular boobs. This was notable because Mircea Monroe is very skinny, and they don't appear to be fake. So it seems like she might have giant boobs without the body to support them. This is very rare in nature.
The next day, I go to work on the Warner Brothers lot. At lunch, I go to get some food at the commissary. I make my salad - romaine, carrots, celery, and cucumber - pay, and start to walk out when I stop cold. I see her. It's...
I don't know how, but even though it had been 10 years, I recognized her instantly.
She, of course, was oblivious as to who I am. Well, except she knows I'm some creepy guy who is staring at her.
So I race back to the office and look up her name on IMDB, and sure enough, she works on Conan (though not as a writer). Conan is shot at Warner Brothers.
That night, I went to see the movie "Magic Mike" (which I enjoyed, by the way. McConaughey is amazing). There's a semi-orgy scene in it where "The Kid" hooks up with Matt Bomer's character and his wife. And the whole thing is about how great Matt Bomer's wife's boobs are.
His wife is topless in the scene and the casting is spot on because they are really, really great. Matt Bomer is so proud of them, in fact, that he encourages The Kid to take them for a spin.
Well, after the movie, I race home, check out the movie and sure enough, the woman with the great boobs is played by Mircea Monroe. I thought I had pioneered thinking that her boobs were awesome, but in fact, Steven Soderbergh beat me to it.
So I go on twitter to look this girl up (I forget why). She has a twitter, and on her "bio" it reads:
"Hi. I'm Mircea Monroe. Boobs. Glad we're on the same page."
Boobs are her whole thing!!! Can I spot talent or what? And better yet, she gets it. She knows what's going on with the people looking her up.
But even better than that: Mircea Monroe doesn't just have a twitter. Mircea Monroe's BOOBS have their own twitter page. Her tits tweet things!
Here's the weird thing though:
When you search for someone using their name on twitter, what comes up is people who have recently tweeted at them. And who was the first person on there, the person who had most recently tweeted at Mircea Monroe?
