The Weirdest thing happened today...  
Ok wow I have been without the net all week and I just got on and re-read my last couple of entries, i plead temporary insanity and the fact that it was one in the morning, lol it was a pretty great game though...now we just have to beat Brazil!!!

Ok so the wierdest thing happened today...

We have a magazine here in Australia called TV WEEK they basically cover all sorts of information regarding TV shows etc and just recently they added a section called "Child Star" where people can write in about if they were named after a TV star or character, now a little known fact about me (I only found out last yr myself LOL) is that I was named after Dad's favourite TV actress Erin Grey who played Wilma in "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century". So I decided I would write in to the magazine and see if i could get published and win some DVD's... heres what I wrote

I was named after my father's Favourite Sci-Fi Actress
Erin Gray who played who played Col. Wilma Deering in
"Buck Rogers in the 25th Century", and the name
certainly seems to suit me as I am a huge Sci-Fi fan
myself and have even been lucky enough to meet several
of my favourite sci-fi stars including Amanda Tapping
from Stargate Sg-1!

Now this is where weirdness ensues, today I was at home and I get a phone call from one of the women at TV WEEK saying that they had gotten my email and were really interested in my story. They are infact starting a new section in the magazine on reader's interest stories so they would like to interview me and do a whole story on me and who i've met etc. So on Monday a reporter from the mag is going to ring me and do this whole interview and everything...HOW WEIRD IS THAT!!!!!! 

There are no guarantees yet that it will be published, but we will wait and see what happens!!

Mood: surprisedsurprised

This is so cool! Fancy that - you just might appear on Channel 7 or TV week! :)

I did think of Wilma when I saw your name because she's the only other Erin I know of on TV and I loved Buck Rogers when I was a kid. :)

hehe I didn't even know what "Buck Rogers" was lol, but I looked up pictures of Erin after I found out thats where Dad got the name from, hopefully I will get to see an episode one day, I have been trying to find the DVD's for Dad so if i can find them I will get to!!!
