Allegedly it was 55 degrees outside last night -- too cool for Nyota. I brought both her and Cookie inside for a slumber party. It's only 57 now, which is actually very pleasant.

I must be hanging around in the wrong neighborhood on Instagram because I had no idea that it was a place to brag that you'd stalked and scored the famous person. As a relative Instagram noob, all I'd ever seen was photos with the official or semi-official girlfriends or else fan pix from the type of fans who just want to be in the presence and maybe get a signed CD. So hashtag groupie is a new one on me. I'm tempted to check it out but I'm afraid I'll find out that there are tons and tons of groupies using it, and then I might never stop laughing.

But, hey, you go girl, I guess. I like the part of the story where sometimes you have to make your own luck. I have to admit it, when I read on Tumblr that some of the Australian girls were tracking the bashful singer down to his hotel and even buying cheap air tickets so they could stalk him in the airport I figured they must have an evil plan but I didn't necessarily think the plan would involve reporting back to one's Instagram followers. Ha. What would the plaster casters say?

I'd better hasten to add that in the Instagram I saw -- despite the self-proclaimed groupie's claims -- they both had their clothes on. So it's possible that she kinda exaggerated the whole encounter. I don't plan to investigate further either way. It's too funny as it is.
