Now it is just the opposite. People are no longer willing to wait for luck to tap them on the shoulder. These days, they are demanding their 15-minutes - and everyone had better pay attention, by gosh. The Christian Science Monitor has the story of the woman whose hands appear on the cover of Twilight. By now, everyone is familiar with the book's cover shot:
Well, Kimbra Hickey wants you to know that those are her hands and she can prove it - and if you stand still long enough, she will:
"It was too big of a deal just to let it be," Hickey told the New York Post of her quest for recognition, even as she admitted that she has become "a little goofy" about the whole thing. ("Goofy" may indeed be the best description for her habit of carrying a Gala apple in her purse at times so she can recreate the famous pose for anyone interested. Hickey told the Post that she also sometimes "hangs out near the cash register" at the Barnes & Noble near her apartment to help attract attention.)
I'm sorry, but I think this is just sad.
