Interesting story about Philly’s reputation as a big city, small town.
Now Picture this.
Lucy Van Pelt walking up, onto the bus. Everyone looking at me and I wave, the obligatory “Hello”. People are looking, embrace it. Sitting next to a man who has his Blackberry out, Twittering to his followers,
“The bus just filled up with Halloweeners. I am sitting net to Lucy Van Pelt as psychiatrist. and she tweets! @betsyvonawesome is her name.”
Friendly banter. His name is Chris, he goes by @harveymilk . I get off a few blocks up the street.

I run into Hughe Dillion, famous for PhillyChitChat. Philly’s own paparrazi. He and I chitchat and I tell him about my bus guy. I find out, they know each other! How crazy is that! Hughe (@iphillychitchat), myself (@betsyvonawesome), and Chris(@harveymilk) start twittering back and forth to each other.
Throughout all this, Hughe shoots a picture of me and Lynsey. While he’s sitting down. I’m convinced this is not my best angle. But I did make it into the Philly Poppy, and on Halloween of all times!
