Sunny invades Oxford!

amelie is inebriated at the moment, but she ordered me to blog, so, being the faithful and sober friend that I am, I’m following orders.  (But mostly I just wanted to rat her out for being drunk.  amelie isn’t drunk often, so it’s fun to make fun of her when she is!)  

The cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is in Oxford this weekend for a wedding!  How cool is that?!  Dee and Mack were seen at Ajax today at lunch eating, and The Waitress and Charlie were seen at City Grocery this afternoon.  

We’re both huge fans of Sunny.  And I have to say, if I saw Charlie walking around the Square, I’d have a very hard time not yelling out a couple of lyrics to “Dayman,” or mentioning Greenman or something like that.  So I guess it’s a good thing I’m not on the Square tonight.  

All in all, Oxford is pretty tame when it comes to seeing celebrities.  We generally don’t freak out.  John Grisham lived here (and still does occasionally) for a while, and Morgan Freeman comes to visit the Chancellor of Ole Miss quite frequently.  Ethan Hawk has signed books at Square Books, and Tom Cruise hand delivered a horse to Grisham after the filming of The Firm.  A few movies have been filmed here, and a few people have sworn up and down that they’ve seen Brad Pitt on the Square, but I’m not sure how true that is.  

During the debate, supposedly Oprah was staying at John Grisham’s house.  (But then I also heard that Arnold Schwartsenegger was there, too, so I’m not sure which story is true.)  There were a few Arnold sightings at Square Books, though.  But anyway, I’m rambling.  

I’m hoping I’ll hear a few stories about people running into the Sunny crew, but we’ll see.  I knew a few people are going to be hunting them down tonight on the Square, so hopefully I’ll hear fun stories at some point in the middle of the night!  

amelie, I hope you don’t have a hangover tomorrow morning!  Enjoy the wedding that you TOTALLY aren’t talking me into going to.  (Although I do have to say, it would REALLY suck if the Sunny crew was going to THAT wedding.  Wouldn’t that be ironic!)

Friday’s Photo

Man, we really suck at getting these things posted. We humbly apologize for being lazy procrastinators. It won’t happen…okay, yeah, it’ll probably happen again. ANYway. This week’s photo is from Oxford, Miss., above Square Books.
