I know Tom Green pretty well. He and my brother used to hang out regularly. He knows me by name and I partied with him downtown once like 7 years ago when he was in Canada for his book release. :P

I've met a ton of celebrities, but I think Tom is the only well-known one that I know-know.

ETA: I wanted to add that I am also of the opinion that celebrities are just people. All of the ones I've met, have been very casual greeting with an "I love your work" thrown in here and there.

The SO & I used to be friends with a guy in a fairly well known band; SO and dude were friends from way back, and SO grew up with a few of the other bandmates as well. We don't see or hear from dude anymore, though, so I'm hard pressed to call us friends these days.

I've met quite a few celebrities, but these days, I think I'd not be so quick to invade their free time by pestering them for photos or autographs.

Unless it's Norman Reedus. Then all bets are off.

Nope. And don't really have any motivation TO know anyone famous.

I'd rather meet awesome dog people any day. Like, if I saw a dog trainer I really liked I would be all

and he smiles and is like "Yea, I know, thanks, people tell me I should play basketball"
and I'm like "You totally should!"
and he's like "I'll think about it, cute dog! See you around!"

... only later when I saw his face on a bilboard that I was like
Oh
My
God


..he is on Miami heat.
He plays basketball

He was totally messing with me!! LOL

I ran into Bonzi Wells in street clothes one day. He was familiar, and I just assumed I knew him from the clinic and was desperately trying to remember his pet's name. We started talking about something random and went our separate ways. Took me a while to figure out why that super tall man was familiar. Duh.

Also, when I first moved to Oregon, I worked at a Toys R Us. A man came in and paid with a check so I asked him for ID. Everybody just looked at me like I was an idiot, and the guy was totally amused. Found out later he was the governor

Some of my friends know Ian Dunbar. That gets me all fangirl excited.

I've talked to Punit Soni on G+ and was all giddy. Yes, I realize how nerdy that makes me.

Nope. lol. I've met people but I'm not BFF with any celebs.



My mom hung out with Prince when she was a teenager.

Hey now, you found that one... uh... knitting lady's daughter at Winterlude that one time! That's like, cooler than being friends with her.


Totally not stretching it, at all. Totally don't remember her name, either.

I'm pretty sure the Yarn Harlot is only a celebrity to me. XD She's a knitting goddess.

Kind of- John Amos lives over by where we used to live (and where I work). Hubby knows him from the local coffee shop. Me? I talked to him on the phone a couple of times. Joe Piscopoe's two youngest kids go to school where I work (his oldest son went to high school with our oldest). I've met a few professional bull riders and stock contractors, and former NY Giants players Phil Simms and Erik Howard, among others.

On the dog front, I run into Petra Ford a couple of times a month. Her business is in the same building where we do Nosework and Rally.
