teri hatcher

I'm in Vegas for my friends O & D's birthday bash. Walking into the tower suite lobby of Wynn Hotel, I passed a woman in a floor-length evening gown. The dress, a blend of browns and yellows, showed off her slender long body reminiscent of a Bond girl.

"I guess there actually are real-life people who look like that," I thought. "Vegas is truly the land of beauties."

My immediate next impulse was to stare at the man holding her arm. What kind of man can land a woman with that caliber of looks? He was tall, with pleasant features and a shaved head.

I walked fifteen seconds into the elevator bay, where I ran into D, one of the birthday boys.

"Did you see Teri Hatcher?" he said. "She just walked by."

You know how some people chase celebrities and ogle them without any attempt at discretion? They give no thought to the celebrity's privacy, and they forego their own self-dignity in gawking and pointing.

Yeah, I'm totally like that.

"WHAT?" I said to D, and dragged him back out to the reception lobby. He good-humoredly moved in a pointless circle with me, to get a good look to verify whether it's her. She had her back to us, so we didn't reach a conclusion.

Three hours later, as I ambled through the lobby to meet my group for clubbing, I again passed the woman on her way back to her suite. It is definitely Teri Hatcher.

Some people like to talk about how media distorts beauty, and how models are photoshopped to look skinnier, and no one actually looks as good in real life as they do on TV. Therefore real-life women should feel better about their blemishes and love handles, because media perfection is unachievable.

Teri Hatcher last night proved this to be bullshit. Because she really does look exactly like this, if not better:

But Niniane you have become kind of a celebrity in your own right. If I saw you somewhere I would think of you as one.

seeing celebrity's in vegas is a common thing. once i saw a guy with a tatoo on his face, it was mike tyson and no one really noticed. another time i was eating at the *fix* at bellagio and saw tila tequila walk by. she got more attention than mike. ;-)

Some people look better when mediated by the camera; others look worse.

Some people look better from a distance; others are more beautiful up close.

Myself, I'm nearsighted from reading too much.

Is it a requirement of celebrity to look good when looking over your shoulder. It seems so unnatural.

So I'm going over the coverage of the Grammy's, and see several articles declaring how hot and terrific Teri Hatcher looked. I'm thinking to myself "Hey, these might be some great, sexy photos for the site." So I find some high-res photos...and stop, slightly puzzled. I zoom in. I zoom in a little more. And then some more. Then I screamed, wet my pants, and cried like a little girl.

We work a lot, but can't talk about it due to confidentiality.

that's what my chemist friend said to me when she was working at pfizer, but then over dinner she'd eventually reveal what was in their pipeline. ;)

Niniane is very cute. She defends very sweetly - "We work but cant talk about it". I was only pulling when I mentioned "Do you ever work?". Ofcourse you all do, else how would we have great products like gmail. Just that Google Desktop sucks big time :(

yes, niniane is very tactful and the perfect hostess. ^^

Niniane, I think I saw you walking into the pearl milk tea shop in Mountain View tonight. It was sort of like spotting a celebrity. I admit I did a double take. =)

Niniane said...

Yes, tonight I got pearl tea in downtown MV with Odin, Alipé, Joby, and Galileo. Funny incidents occurred, which will be described in a blog post. :)
