Friday Confession: Things I said recently


It pains me to admit to all of them, so I’ll do it here, I’ll do it once, and I’ll humbly ask you to mock me behind my back.

At the party, to Karen Samuels when she told me she was in Law Review with Obama: Oh wow, I didn’t know you’re a lawyer. Where did you go to law school?

At Consumer Reports when meeting Dr. Val: [checking her up and down like a high school sophomore] Aren’t you a little bit pretty to be a doctor?

Upon entering Girls In Tech, Shaking hands with Trina from, “oh are you from Girl Gamer? I love them!” *le sigh* Trina, seriously darlin, I can love you too.

The best of all might have been yesterday and it’s very uniquely LA.I ran into Ashley, who I’ve known casually for about 4 years now and she was reading a script. So I guess I’ll have to write it like one.

ME: Oh wow have you gone back to work?
ASHLEY: Yeah, I’m just getting ready for tomorrow.
ME: [peeking at the script she’s reading] Heroes? Are you working on Heroes?
ASHLEY: Yeah. I’ve been on it a while now.
ME: Do you work with Jack?
ASHLEY: [smiling] I’m his wife at work.
ME: Oh, what do you do? [thinking maybe she’s his assistant]
ASHLEY: I’m his wife.
ME: Right, but what do you do.
ASHLEY: I’m Jack’s wife.
ME: Uh, no Jack’s married to Beth.
ASHLEY: I’m his wife on the show.
ME: [finally getting it] Oh gawd, you’re an actor? [she nods patiently] I’ve got to watch that show!

For the record, I ran home and googled Ashley… she’s way cuter and way hotter in person than the stills I see online. Yes, I’ve been given the first season of the show… no, I still haven’t watched it. I know, I suck.

    So-o-o-o funny. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who says things I later regret and regret and regret. I feel like such a dolt sometimes!

    Hi Jessica,

    I noticed on Twitter that you asked for url’s for your blogroll……would you like to include me? Quips and Tips for

    Let me know — I haven’t read you here yet, and will start poking around now :-)

    Jessica, the fact that such mistakes can happen AT ALL in your life is, as we say in New England, “Wicked” cool. I have never met an actor, nor mistaken a friend’s role on a TV show I have not often watched.

    Also, being a nerd, meeting girls from popular gaming websites is also a bit hard to reach.

    You’re lucky that you could make such… hilarious mistakes 8)

    Gosh, this is inspirational!

    I’d love to write a similar post but I think I say too many confession-worthy things, writing a post about it would be redundant!

  5. Donna says:

    It’s probably refreshing for an actor on a show like Heroes to be treated just like anyone else. (That first season was the best).

    I think your friend Ashley is great on the show. :) Yeah, better not introduce me to her — I would just embarrass you.

    So funny!! Open mouth, insert foot.

  7. Trina says:

    hahaha it was funny and trust me, the more I venture out to web 2.0 events the more I get asked that. haha But there is room to love both our sites right?
    *hugs* Hope to see you at the next event!
    Trina ^_^

    there is nothing more cleansing then sharing one’s foot in mouth experiences with the whole world. brings the embarrassment full circle and kind of purges it out and defuses it, don’t you think.

    you will never cease to entertain me.

    Saying stupid things is one of my talents but I can’t think of how to make it pay.

  10. Elle says:

    Sometimes I remember the stupid things I’ve said to other people in public, and I sit and laugh and laugh at myself (but it’s easier to laugh at yourself when the other person doesn’t belittle you for your mistake).

  11. scot says:

    I love this. You’re brave to fess up publicly.

  12. My most recent fauz pas was running into this guy at a dog adoption event. I insisted we had met this guy at a cocktail party because he looked so damned familiar.

    It was Jason Biggs (from the American Pie movies.)

    There was also the point where I turned down the opportunity to have a threesome with a female co-star of a classic 80’s show, but I think that’s more “good judgment” than “faux pas.” Some disagree.

  13. BusyDad says:

    I won’t show my son this. It’ll just serve as ammo for why he should watch more TV.

  14. Karen says:

    It’s okay Jessica. I thought it was funny. Plus, I got to call you a bitch (for a different reason–one that I can no longer remember, however) to your face later….you see it all evens out in the end!

    I stick my foot in my mouth–sometimes all the way up to my knee (no jokes about deep throat), frequently. It’s what makes us human. And acrobatic, apparently.

    Don’t feel bad, Jess. I’ve seen a few episodes which is not much better as they go in one eye and out the other. Too friggin confusing. One of these days, when I’m 70, I should lock myself in a bubble and watch the entire series at a go.

    Or not.

    i don’t know how often i find myself silently hitting myself over the head as i walk away from a person.. glad to know there are others out there just like me :)

  17. […] plans. Some of the parents are film actors, some are TV, some are easily recognized and others just look familiar because they’re in everything. It’s fun to see my friends pop up on screens large and small but […]
