anyway, I saw Denzel walking along college street once haha I had just parked my car at my grandparents and was going to get my first tattoo. He was wearing a trench and a hat (in the middle of summer confused.gif) but noticed me noticing him and smiled and kinda pointed his finger at me...

 

 

[with a look that said, Yeah, it's me.  Denzel Washington.  In the flesh. ]

I've seen her a couple of times in my neighborhood, including last weekend with her baby, who surprisingly doesn't look Asian at all. Looks Irish or something

I had a temp job delivering office supplies at MGM's office building in Beverly HIlls.  I was riding up the elevator with a young junior-executive type with a briefcase and dockers and a crew-cut.  We made small talk until we arrived at the 9th floor, where the top executives were.  I went my way to deliver post-it notes and pencils to the secretaries and he went into a meeting room with a bunch of bigwigs.  When I came back through the lobby, all the women rushed up to me and gasped, "What was he like?"  I said, "Who?"  They sighed and said, "Tom Cruise!"

Another time, in the same store in which I encountered Michael Jackson, there was a man walking all over the store talking very loudly to various clerks.  Like Michael Jackson, he didn't buy anything.  He just walked all over the store, talking loudly, making everyone notice him.  Alec Baldwin, dressed entirely in black, but no veil. 

I was coming out of a doctor's office when a horde of people came racing past me, knocking me down.  One of them looked down at me and explained, "It's Britney!"  Further down the sidewalk I could hear them snapping their cameras and calling out, "Britney!  Britney!"


This post was awesome.

Saw George Takei in the lobby of a hotel in town today, was there to talk to them about having my wedding reception there. This sounds weird, but he may be the most Asian looking person I've ever met, and I went to a high school that was 1/4 Asian.

I was at a reception on Sunday. I introduced myself, and George Lucas introduced himself right back.
