LOL Larry!!! That doesn't surprise me at all!! I met him when I worked in a casino restaurant outside of Vegas at Whiskey Pete's Casino. He is very *handy* with his hands and thinks that his crude *suggestions* are endearing. To me, he's just another pervert and POSSIBLY an inbred pervert to boot. He just doesn't seem to bring out the best in women, does he? LOL. Tell your friend that I salute her!!

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we might as well dance.

Carol Burnett - that's great

Larry - that's so funny

My husband was in the same elevator as Shania Twain     Just found out today   It was years ago and he was starstruck

"Magic" Johnson

Star Wars Celebs I've met:
Mark Hamill
Jeremy Bulloch (Classic Boba Fett)
Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca-On the same day as Mark Hamill...what're the odds?)

I think that's it.

Death is not extinguishing the light;
it is putting out the lamp
because the dawn has come.

I have a recent one!

If anybody watches "Survivor" that is...

This is the first time I've ever watched it, and it's just because that woman "Angie" from New Orleans was driving me mad with that "I-know-that-person-from-somewhere." haunt of familiarity.

It wasn't even her looks, because when I'd met her at a party, she looked much different then. It was her voice. I recognized her voice.

So I have been watching every episode, staring at her image so hard I'd squint. Finally I got in touch with my friend who had hosted the previously mentioned party and she squealed with delight as soon as the word "survivor" spilled from my mouth.

She then, I'm embarrassed to admit, said that she figured I was too drunk to remember, but yep, Angie was indeed the woman who gave me pointers on a particularly tricky shot in a game of pool.



Angie's getting her fifteen minutes.

Not you

My first thought when I read your list was what do you do to meet all those people?  very interesting...

I'm wondering if anyone met Sting and if so, what is he like?

I've always been fascinated by him - well his song lyrics anyway

Seriously,

I don't get around much anymore -- if you look at all those names those are pretty crusty celebs... heh.

Like me.

At the time I did a combination of things, among which were some journalism and things in the music biz (including recording).

Many I just met out and about -- like John Goodman -- met him on a flight to New Orleans out of LAX the day before Thanksgiving heck of a nice guy.

Met Cokie Roberts in St. Louis on a layover at the airport.

Met Sam Donaldson at an event I was covering as a photographer.

Met Gene Simmons backstage @ a concert that I was working as a rep for a music products company (and let me just say he is the most disgusting human being I've ever met).

Met some at trade shows like Doc Severnson and Omar Hakim...

It just varies.

I have moss now

Never met Sting but always wanted to also -- in fact -- I have a whole list of people I would like to have met -- like Kate Hepburn, Shatner, Nimoy, the Stones, Clapton, Elizabeth Shue, Diane Lane, Elizabeth Shue, Diane Lane, Susan Sarandon, Gena Davis, Elizabeth Shue, Diane Lane, Gena Davis, um... ok... I seem to be stuck in a pattern here.

Must be the fever 100.3
