We Meet Sherilyn Fenn
22 years ago I saw Audrey Horne (Sherilyn Fenn) tie a cherry stem with her tongue to convince Blackie that she was indeed a "working girl." Well that trick not only worked on Blackie, it worked on me. My first Sweet Baby was created. I was so in love with her and still am today. I have always wanted to make the trek out to the Twin Peaks Fest in the hope of meeting her but it is quite a plane ticket from Columbus, Ohio. But thanks to Welcome To Twin Peaks, Thats Our Waldo on twitter, I found out that she was coming to me. I snapped up tickets for Josh and I and headed to the Horror Hound Weekend.
The first thing that I noticed in the parking lot was that I probably should have worn black. I guess wearing a red polo short and jeans was going to tell them that I was probably not there for multitude of Horror-Porn booths. I know nothing about the Horror Genre. The last horror movie I saw was Nightmare On Elm Street in 1986 and I only saw that to hold the hand of my high school crush . . . it wasn't worth it. My second thought was that it really looked like a Bobcat Goldthwait look-alike convention. Every guy except the cellophane dude looked the same. I have no idea what this dude was dressed as but Josh wondered wear he kept his wallet. (see side photo) I started singing the Broadway Showtune, Mr. Cellophane, another example of how I may not fit in at a place that sells authentic antique medical devises.
But back to Ms. Fenn. I got there 90 minutes early and rushed through the registration so I could get in line to meet one of the sexiest character actresses in television history. I was the only one there the entire 90 minutes until Josh showed up to wait with me. Josh was great throughout this entire experience as he knew how much I had always wanted to meet her. He did suggest that she may not be that big of a draw at a Horror convention. But he waited none the less. A few minutes before she came out 2 other guys showed up. The line for some guy from Walking Dead had a line out the door and around the corner. What has this world come to? Here we love Twin Peaks, in fact we have a page dedicated to it which you can check out.
