Being David Hasselhoff


Today I debut a new feature called Being David Hasselhoff. I am actively soliciting submissions for this feature. I know you're good at complaining, but are you creative?

The idea is simple. It's about being David Hasselhoff. You can write a limerick, shoot a video or make a scrapbook. Anything creative will do. Post links in the comments box or e-mail submissions to me: dryas (at) theedge (dot) ca.

There will be prizes. Oh yes, there will be prizes. I am offering space on my blog to the winner. You can write about anything you want. If you don't have your own blog, this could be a way to dip your toe into the blogging world. If you have your own blog, perhaps you'd like to swap blogs for the day: I'll post on yours and you can post on mine. The runner-up will get a Donnie Osmond CD. (You know you want it.)

I'll get you started.

Now, does anyone know where I can find some Shar-Pei puppies?

Muah - that's an awesome one :D
Not sure I could ever beat that :D
But I love the idea and that shot :)!!!

Karan said...


I'm, well, speechless.

If I may, you could, perhaps, push you hips a little to the right to get the pose somewhat more "Hoffesque.

You're so very cool!

Whew! For a second there, I thought I was seeing double! (Not to imply that you have hair on your chest, or anything).

I may not have a limerick, etc. but I have a TRUE STORY about actually MEETING David Hasselhoff!!(Seriously, I am not lying on this one--who would admit that if it weren't true?) I haven't even thought of this story in like 30 years--but thanks for the opportunity to share it again!

In 1977, my best friend and I went to California for a visit--our first time abroad and on our own. We were wacky 17 year olds and wild about Y&R (and if you know David, you know what that is!!). Coming from Canada with a 6-hour time difference to LA, we woke up our first morning there at 5:30 AM. Didn't know what to do, so wandered downtown and noticed CBS studios. Back door was open. We snuck in.

My friend started jumping up and down and freaking out when we came upon a set: "This is Mrs. Chancellor's living room! This is Mrs. Chancellor's living room!" Of course, a security guard spotted us and came over to see who the heck we were and what we were doing there. I guess we were just so darned cute (and in the interest of US-Canadian relations), they gave us each a guest pass to the set and LET US SPEND THE DAY WITH THE SOAP ACTORS. Can you imagine the elation for two teens on their first day in LA??

We met a whole bunch of people (most of whom are no longer on the show), but were more entranced by Snapper--ie, David. He told us about a great beach to visit, some stupid vinyard (two teenaged girls??), the gruelling soap schedule and how great it was to work there, etc. etc. etc.

I have a photo somewhere in an album in one of the 60 boxes in my basement. If I can dig it out, I'll try to send it along.

Now really, can a limerick beat THAT??

Megan said...

Ricki: Yes! Yes! Dig it out!

That's hilarious! Maybe he's posting a picture of himself portraying YOU on his blog...Well, maybe. :)

Torq said...

While I have no claim to meeting the Hoffster, I think that it is fair to say that after viewing these photographs I am a genuine Hoffstage. There can be no hope for me now that I have fallen captive to the peerless masculinity of the Hoffmister, reeking as he does with pure primal sexual energy.

My only thought, my every though, echoing endlessly in my mind,
How can I ever compare to him?

Megan said...

Torq: Get yourself one of those lifeguard's buoys and send me a picture!

Glen said...

I have rewritten Scandal's "I am the Warrior" as "I am the Hasselhoff" on my blog.

after i picked myself up from the floor where i landed after the hysterics had past, i thought with a tight perm, a little package and some fun fur, no one else could make leather and speedos look so incredibly irresistable! you got it goin' on Hoff!
