I am pretty much famous

So I have this new neighbor. Let's call her Toni Diver. She is sort of a local celeb. It is hard to recognize her cuz she wears sunglasses a lot. Anyway, Toni has a little girl that Ella likes to play with. Toni herself has never been to my house, and I have never really had a conversation with her. I guess I am just intimidated. Cuz you all know I get that way, I'm shy, I can only talk to every other stranger I know. So, the other day, Toni's little girl was playing at my house. A while later the doorbell rang, it was Toni, at my house!! She was standing at the door with her little boy. She said, "----- saw your trampoline and wants to jump on it for awhile." This was not a question, more of a statement, letting me know her son would be jumping on my tramp for awhile. I said that was fine, but I was about to teach a lesson and wouldn't be able to watch him. She didn't seem to mind that at all. Then she says, "I'm just going to acclimate him to your house." And she picks him up, walks in and heads upstairs. Now I don't know about the rest of you gize, but my upstairs can get pretty atrocious. And I myself would never venture into the living quarters of someone else's house with out being invited, or unless I was chasing my toddler around. I am also the type of person who cleans their house just enough to have it look clean from the front door. Having anyone actually enter the house is a whole different deal. I would also like to add that I had been gone all morning leaving Bailey and Calvin to babysit my kids and my friends kids. Back to Toni, who is now roaming around my upstairs with her son. Dwight is home for lunch and we are both just standing at the bottom of the stairs giving each other freaked out looks. We were saying "what the aych" with our eyes, and maybe mouthing it too. So she finally decides to come downstairs, and let's us know he just wants to jump. Then she heads towards the backdoor. Maybe I should feel privileged that a celebrity was so comfortable in my home that she seemed to pretty much feel it was her own. As she is walking through the kitchen, Dwight is standing by me, so I take the opportunity to introduce him to her. Considering she and I have never been introduce to each other, I thought maybe it would be less awkward. Dwight is ever so polite, and acts genuinely pleased to meet her, maybe he really was. She gives him a brief "hi" without actually looking at him, and keeps on to the back yard. She got her son on the tramp, and says she'll come back in about 45 minutes. Then she was gone. I don't know if I should be annoyed, freaked out, or just angry at myself for not getting a picture and an autograph. But, I think I will for sure be getting a security system, cuz this neighborhood is going downhill fast.

OH MY GOSH!!!! ::Being thankful a stranger didn't walk around my upstairs:: though if she did, I'm pretty sure, her child would not be staying. Does anyone REALLY clean their upstairs? just wondering...

I see your future...their will be many stories about your neighbor... I can't wait.

Ok I am insanely curious on who this person is. Because I sure as heck never heard of Toni Diver.

Katie said...

OOOOH. I hate that, but I secretly want to do that in every house I have entered. Maybe when i get on TV my wish will come true. I am definitely going to ask to use the bathroom too.

Amy, your forgot to add what great style she as a celebrity chooses to dress her children with(not) Does she ever comb Ella's friends hair? For appearance sake being a celebrity and all.

Memzy said...

This kinda stuff gets me P-O'd!! Why do people do these things? I also am very curious about more info. Please tell!

Landee said...

Was it Carolyn Holly? Be honest. I hear she's a B.

You CANNOT let a celebrity walk all over you like this. They already OWN Los Angeles... don't let them take over LesBois too.

Casey said...

I would die, usually my upstairs is dotted with dirty laundry. Or the ever present piles of clean laundry waiting to be folded. I'm really curious to know who it is.

Amy T said...

Oh, there was plenty of laundry. There was also plenty of ripped up papers, and video games, and toys, and VHS cassetts that they were playing dominos with.

Ask me in person who it is.

Erin Beck said...

Oh just tell us who it is..we all think you are lying cuz you wont say it you just want to look cool bt pretending a celebrity lives across the street from you..ya right!! In Les Boise,Imdaho?? Who is it Amy T!! Give thta B the keys to the street and do it tonite!

ajesplin said...

It's a LOCAL celeb you gize ^^ so stop freaking out. Local celeb = news or radio personality or political figure or retired actor or has-been rock star.

And the reason she did that, Amy, is because you live in a gigantic mansion. I'm sure she was dying with curiosity to see the floor plan.

Just don't ever yell at her kid, or she might throw a cell phone at you.

I dont care what title anyone has....that is super-duper creepy! i would flip out! I would probably flip out and follow her up there and pick up arm fulls of things and pretend like I'd been busy cleaning all morning, or that we were all sick so that maybe she'd hurry up and leave....yeah i agree with myself, you should have followed her to see what the freak she was doing!
Also....maybe Im a freak but Im not big on letting my kids go to peoples houses that I just dont know, so that by itself is very very wierd! I am dying to know who this crazy person is!

Annie said...

Tony who??? If I were you I would have locked the door behind her and said someting like "Got you now!"

Kathy said...

I say you "aclimate" your kids to her house. Any maybe mention how much you love Carolyn Holly.

Dwight Schrute said...

Why do you insist on calling me "Toni Diver" and referring to me as a woman?
#1 I was just checking out your accomodations to make sure they would be appropriate for my son.
#2 They were.
