Apparently I'm a legend.
This was pointed out to me by graveyardgreg. It's apparently embedded in concrete at the Legends Mall in Sparks, Nevada:



It's verified on their website that I'm one of the "Nevada Legends." I'm just about speechless (but obviously not quite). It may not be the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but it's still a wonderful way to be recognized. I need to get down there and have my picture taken next to it before they realize their mistake and take it down. ;)

Wow. Just... wow.

Current Mood: blown away
Current Music: Weird Al Yankovic - Genius in France (or Sparks?)

It's kinda like the Walk of Fame, since it's on the sidewalk. We can walk all over you!

Hey, that's not a bad idea...

WHOA. Congratulations, Kevin J. Yes, take a picture.

And post it.

Think you can arrange for a train to Sparks this very moment?

Whoa, neat. You'd think they'd have at least told you they were putting something like that up, though.

The surprise was cool, though... just like the Wikipedia entry and the nomination to be in the Attitude book, I didn't have to wrangle it... some cool person just thought I was good. *blush*

Congratulations!

You know, most people who want their name on a bronze plaque go out and find someone to put it up for them. The fact that this happened entirely unknown to you makes it that much more impressive.

So have you started planning a trip to Nevada yet?

Yeah, I know, I'm utterly astonished. In a way, I hope I don't find out who it is; if it's a stranger, then it means I've touched someone I don't even know.

I must go some time, come hell or high water...

Wow, congratulations!

You know, the thought occurs...have you considered calling the Legends Mall yourself and saying 'Yes, I'm that Thomas Dye. Do you want me to show up for an appearance?' They may laugh, but then they may also say 'We'll pay for the plane ticket. Yes. Come with books to sign.' I mean, we are talking about Reno, which, like Las Vegas, loves events. Worth asking?

THAT is really freakin' cool.

Now maybe you'll realize that a lot of us really DO think you're a talented son of a bitch. :)
