Excuse Me, You Seem To Have Dropped A Name

That's me on the left, in 2000, before I had bangs. That's Dave Foley from Kids In The Hall, Newsradio and little else since, on the right.

We look happy, don't we? Well, minutes later we wound up screaming at each other, frightening the other patrons in the Hollywood dive bar where he was drinking. (Notice I said he. I was only drinking club soda.)

Anyway, the details aren't important. He doesn't remember them anyway.

So far, I've met three members of the Kids In The Hall (Foley, Scott Thompson and Kevin McDonald) but I've only fought with one. My goal is to take them all on in a steel cage death match.

Yeah, Dave likes his booze.

But don't forget his brilliant run as Jack's boyfriend on Will and Grace. That run ran a while and I think the show ended with them together?

I stand corrected. I actually think he's a very good comedic actor and I was a huge fan of Kids In The Hall.

I just doubt we'll ever be good friends.

Didn't he host that improv show? Not "Who's Line is it Anyway" but the one called "Thank God You're Here!"

I don't know if that counts or not...

Yikes, I forgot about that show. It was hard to watch.

He also hosted the celebrity poker show which I actually enjoyed.

I hear he's going to be one of the celebrity judges during the "Last Comic Standing" Toronto auditions. No, I will not be making the trip.

Since that fateful night, I've seen Dave Foley twice at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Both times he's given me that "should I know you" look.

(For the record, my husband took the picture of us. He sat across the table and was quite amused by our disagreement.)
