Oh, I forgot my dad grew up with John Prine's brother. But that's the closest I've got!

I friended Pamela Dennison on Facebook and I go stupid any time she likes/comments on any thing of mine. Once she commented on a photo and my boyfriend said something weird and I was like "STOP. DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE TALKING TO RIGHT NOW?"

My cousin is Andy Buckley, aka David Wallace on The Office. He was also in the newest Alvin and the Chipmunks movie as the captain.

I rode a horse that was on a Mary Kate and Ashley movie, and my dad was invited to a club by Morgan Freeman. That's pretty much it.

I sold dog food to Donovan McNabb, holy Christ, most unhelpful person ever. Like...wasn't even willing to push his own cart to the dog food, and watched as I loaded the bags into his car. Buddy, your arm muscles are bigger than my head

I've met Big Boi from Outkast. Totally did not know who he was. Sold drinks to Evander Holyfield a couple of times. Sold gas to Ludacris.

I had a very long conversation with Fonzworth Bentley, who is apparently someone to Sean Combs about why life sucks. I had no idea who he was. He was just this really well dressed, really nice guy with a cool umbrella at work. It wasn't until my co-workers came over to tell me who he was and why he was famous that I was like, "Oh. Cool."

I had no idea what Big Boi looked like either, so I was completely blasť about talking to them.

I've had many many conversations with Bruce Bruce (a comedian) and had to tell him once my boss wanted him to leave because he wouldn't quit hitting on her.



But the best one is I met ThisWildIdea and his dog Maddie. The famous Maddie. Of "Maddie on things" fame. I got her pawtograph and his autograph. He was a super super nice guy, and Maddie was just a dog, lol.

THIS Maddie!

I'm friends with several authors. My friend Jim Melvin's series is on the Amazon bestseller list. Holly Lisle has helped me with some writing projects too.

A lot of my random friends are really accomplished, and the stuff they did is famous, though I don't know that you'd consider them famous people. Like my friend Laura was a pro spelunker and was on the two week underground expedition that mapped out Mammoth Caves.

Another friend is an actress and one of her screenplays just got picked up by a big producer, so she may end up more "famous".

My dear friend Rachel Corrie is internationally famous for getting murdered in Gaza by an Israeli soldier while doing relief work.

Another friend is the art director for Bungee and is responsible for the design of Master Chief and all the awesomeness of the Halo franchise.

One of my cousins is the scientist who figured out who to insert the DNA into a different egg cell, which made cloning possible.

etc. etc.

I've met a lot of celebrity/famous type people, but don't know them. Met Patrick Rothfuss a couple of times and that was awesome. He led a big group song version of You Are My Sunshine. Ran into the mayor of Seattle before, and a lot of people in my old ward at church were Amazon CEOs and stuff.

I kind of hate your friend Garrett, but I think I met him.

I don't know any to the point where I could say "I know them". Some of the members of Phish are pretty much regulars to see around town; one brings his kids to play on the playground at the school my mother taught at until last year - I think one of them actually just started school there.

I'm related to Bill Nye the Science Guy. Not all that closely, and I've never met him, but he used to get mentioned all the time in the newsletters our family association puts out.

I have little desire to meet much of anyone, so meeting famous people isn't high on my list of fun activities, but I admit to loving watching interviews and stuff. Show People on YouTube is one of my obsessions.
