That used to be my favorite joke when referring to a local theater legend–“In Raleigh, he’s world famous!” And now, it applies to me. A wonderful article about the Fobots appeared in the Raleigh News and Observer this weekend, and while I’m not exactly being chased by paparazzi and hounded for autographs, it’s still pretty sweet being recognized at the grocery store.

My thanks to writer Diane Daniel, who interviewed me by phone as we drove home from Coconut Grove and managed to take over two hours of my disjointed ramblings and craft a smart, funny article that even I was interested in reading. And hats off to photographer Shawn Rocco, whose gorgeous photos didn’t come out blurry even though the whole time he was here a hyperactive puppy was trying to climb up his leg. Or hump it, I’m not sure which.
