Will your Christmas Lights be as good as Alek Komarnitsky's?

So my wife (Wendy Komarnitsky) and I are at a neighborhood party of about 50 people. As typical, I'm over at the buffet table pigging out, while Wendy is chatting with a couple that recently moved in and discussing kids and misc. neighborhood activities. Alan mentions that he has heard that our neighborhood has good holiday lights and asks "but does anyone have Christmas Lights as good as that guy Alek Komarnitsky who was on CNN?"

At this point, Wendy comes over to me and says "I gotta introduce you to this guy" ... so I walk over and say "Hi, I'm Wendy's husband, Alek Komarnitsky" ... needless to say, it was quite the crackup, perhaps even more so for me.

Alan had read the whole Christmas Decorations story and had an amazing memory, so it was fun chatting with him. He's also a pretty serious photographer, so we talked about that too. Nice guy (and nice family) and I'm glad to see 'em move into the neighborhood.

And oh yeah, I'll be warming up with my halloween stuff so my Christmas Lights this year will be as good as Alek Komarnitsky's! ;-)

I see now that you have gone legit you didn't waste any time replacing your photographer. I guess I can't complain since I made the move to Steamboat Springs. I will just have to find some champagne powder to drown my sorrow in over the holidays.

Even though I will be sad I'm looking forward to seeing the 2005 edition of Alek's incredible Christmas decorations live on my desktop.

This is Alan, the subject of this post. Finally getting around to following up and checking your blog. Glad to see I'm now officially a part of Komarnitsky on-line lore. Hope to talk to you sometime soon. Take care,


P.S. Saw the Hulk today, looking good.
