ever met a celebrity?
    #1925881 - 09/17/03 06:34 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

What celebrities or well-known individuals have you met or have some odd connection to? Here's my list:

- Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins
- Ray Manzarek of the Doors
- sat on a plane next to the guy from Starsky & Hutch
- dated a relative of Jesse Ventura
- Pink Flamingos etc. director John Waters (he signed my 3D glasses at an underground film fest)
- corresponded via email with Terrence McKenna
- smoked a joint with members of that band Interpol before a show
- Phil Donahue (yes, his head is very white)
- my mother's ex-husband was a childhood friend to Carlos Santanna
- Exene from the legendary punk band X
- Richie Hawtin
- I threw an orange at President Bush while his motorcade was driving away from the 2001 Inaugaration in DC.
- I was once friends with the son of Lt. Caley (the guy who led the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam).

anyone else?

Timothy Busfield is the only one I've actually met, and that's because I went to school with his son. Last night I went to see a speech by Spike Lee, and passed right by him as he was leaving, but I didn't bother talking to him. Similar thing happened with Ben Stein.

Edwin from I Mother Earth
Jeff Martin from The Tea Party
Hugh Dillon from the Headstones (he gave me some vodka)

Yeah, my list is pretty low key.

My dad's list is pretty impressive, he shook hands with Fidel Castro on one occasion, so I've got that by proxy.
