    Didnt meet to her, but Kate Moss was shopping on our street this morning when I went to the post office. There were about 8 paperazzi (sp?) out front when I left the house.

    I was sitting on the south bank near the tate modern with a couple of friends today and Frank Skinner, a reasonably well known british comic strolled right past us.

    I couldn't remember his name so I nodded towards him and said "look it's that shit comedian..." in the hope one of my friends would know who he was. He heard and glared at us.

    Mrs Smart saw Jessica Biel at Disneyland last week. Funny that both of us have seen her at some point now.

    Not a celeb, but recognizable for those who watch it, we were waiting to cross the street in Old Town Pasadena with Nick from Project Runway a couple seasons back

    Was in the elevator at ABC Carpet & Home today with Whoopi Goldberg. I thought the hair looked familiar but didn't realize it until later when I saw her browsing.

    ...one of my buddies knocked Tim Robbins into next week with a clean hit...Robbins called the cops...

    Your buddy should've been awarded a medal.
    And the cops should've laughed in Robbins' face.

    I was behind her in line once at Faicco's Pork store. Liked the prosciutto sliced thin. Ran into her another time leaving Roundabout performance...[​IMG]

    I sat across from Howie Long and his wife on my last trip a few months ago. I ended up leaving something on my seat (I blame the 18 hrs of traveling) and he came chasing me down the terminal to return it to me. Very nice, approachable guy (and still built like a brick wall).

    I've always loved Vigoda's characters, going back to Barney Miller.

    According to wikipedia, Vigoda is 88 years old. Is he still active and doing stuff?

    BTW: I just saw your above post about Rusty Staub ( I was posting simultaneously as you ). Same question, is Staub active? I haven't seen him in 23 years. He played for the Houston Astros and was quite a chef. When he was leaving Houston, I brokered the sale of his condo on Augusta Blvd. here in Houston back around 1986. It was really quite modest and small but it had an especially nice gourmet kitchen. I think he really enjoyed being a chef and experimenting with cooking.
