    Do you ever run into famous people?

    Post by dixee on 11/15/2009, 7:05 pm

    Maybe it's just where I live, but I run into a lot. Do I really care? No. They're just people. It doesn't make more of me. It's just a subject I decided would be interesting.

    Perhaps a better question is what is the closest you have gotten to someone famous?

    I came across the cast from Disney's Sonny with a Chance at Disneyland one evening.
    About a month later, my friend literally got punched out by a security guard for accidentally bumping into Selena Gomez who was with David Henrie (both, Wizards of Waverly Place) at Knott's Scary Farm at the same time as us. He's clumsy and wasn't watching where he was going, but how do you explain that to a security guard?
    Dominic Monaghan (LoTR, Lost, Flash Forward) was in a restaurant that I go to all the time just the other day when I went for lunch.
    I've been friends with USC Quarterback Matt Barkley for the last several years (same grade, same church). Long before he was popular. I was actually talking to him and his family this morning.

    There's been some more too, but this is recent stuff. What about you guys?

    The closest I've ever been... Two Dallas Cowboys football stars helped push my car up the hill to the gas station when we ran out XD

    That's awesome of them to do that. And, yes, you are very famous. Soon, anyway.

    Most of the 'famous people' I run into are people you don't get to know the face of.
    Um... let me think a bit and see if i can pick out the more recognizable names...


    Caitlin Glass... I don't know how well known she is.... um... we're barely acquaintances... friend of the family really...

    I work in publications so I know a lot of writers but I don't think I'm allowed to release those names... don't need people knowing too much about me or my job you know...

    Bruce Lewis...

    One day when at a hotel on a business trip I was roomed next to a jap-pop band Duel Jewel... Apparently they were there for a concert... I talked to them for a bit then made a couple of jokes about japan so they walked away...

    Monica Rail...
    Douglas Smith...

    Oh god what was that one guy's name... football player for like the porpoises or something... sharky? shocky? oh hell...

    Oh, that's fun. Writing is one of my passions. Next year in college I'm double majoring in English and Computer Sciences. Thanks for sharing.

    I took a picture with C3PO from Star Wars once when I vistited Carnigy Melon University. Other than that I don't think I've ever seen or met anybody famous.

    Other than Fabulous's son. I went to school with him. He was in several of my classes.

    I'm not sure I've ever heard of Fabulous either. Meeting the C3PO guy must have been cool though. Even though I don't like the character, he's a bit of an unwieldy legend, and I find the actor interesting.
