last night we went out to eat (again) for rupert's dad's birthday. and who should be sitting at the table next to ours but andrae from season 2 of 'project runway'! i knew he was from la and went to art school near my house, but i didn't expect to see him in my neighborhood.
rupert wanted me to introduce myself and say how i was a fan (and how i pulled out my sewing machine after watching the show), but i didn't want to bother him during his meal. (in la, it's kind of a given that you don't bother celebrities, no matter how minor a celebrity they are.) it seemed like he was there with a client because after their meal he pulled out a portfolio, some designs and fabric swatches.
according to rupert, who was hovering in their general direction, they shared a chocolate lava cake (after the client finished off a lobster) and andrae takes his coffee regular.
rupert also could not stop doing his tim impersonation of "where's andrae?" a la santino.
