I fully accept that this probably makes me a dork.... but I think Mark Paul Gosselaar, with dark hair and glasses (esp. think like in the movie Dead Man on Campus) is practically the sexiest guy alive

Leslie Abramson (the defense attorney for the Menendez brothers). That was cool; she's feisty.

Too many professional athletes to count.

Oh and I met Tara Lipinski years and years ago, right after she won her gold medal. Heheh. And if any of you GUYS out there knows who she is, I've also met Natalie Gulbis.

Apparently Hartz knew their products were very dangerous to some animals. I also had the President of Hartz respond to an article I had published in a local newspaper. I use to have people come up to me and ask me if I was the Hartz lady ,

Woah. You know where I live? Thats pretty scary. I can't say I ever remember meeting you.
I dig this Bill Clinton guy because:

#1. The avatar is perfect

#2. He hasn't overstayed his welcome (yet...) keeping it low key, I like it

I saw him about 5 months ago in Toys R Us getting baby bottles, his wife had just had their son, anywho, he looked like crap!! When he was younger he was so hot. We all went to this party once and he showed up wearing a long trench coat and was walking through the party like he was the king or something. I heard someone walk up to his and call him Mark and he said really snottylike, my name is Mark-Paul. I lost a lotta respect for him that day!!

OH also forgot to mention that Tracey Gold from Growing Pains lives up here, she shops at the grocery store all the time. I was in the store about 2 weeks ago and walked right past C.Thomas Howell too. Some of you older people will know who I am talking about. He was in the movie The Outsiders: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001367/

I saw this guy at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf where I live a couple of days ago. He played Cole on the YOung & the Restless and was married to Victoria Newman: http://www.soapcentral.com/amc/theactors/peck.php

Oh and this is the best story, I nearly forgot about this one. So I worked part time at a Coffee Bean in Brentwood. One day Davey Jones from the band the Monkeys came in. My friend and I saw that he was coming in and started singing "here we come, walking down the street, we get the funniest looks from, everyone we meet. Hey hey we're the monkeys!". That was classic. Another day I was making a vanilla ice blended and they put your name on it so they know who's drink is who's. SO I turn around to call out "Nicole" to come get her drink and Nicole Kidman walked up. Man she has the best skin ever!! Perfectly flawless!!

2. one time we were canoeing and we tipped the boat over. about 12 cop cars and a firetruck came to "rescue" us (even though were just laughing) we got in the paper. but the best part was when my buddy was in class and this one girl stood up and asked everybody to say a prayer for the boys that were in the canoe accident.

PLEASE FEED LARA FLYNNE BOYLE!

Chantal Kreviazuk is gorgeous, so is her husband. Their boys are definitely going to be ridiculously attractive with those genes.

When I was in high school, I was on vacation in DC with my brother and my parents. We were like a block away from the White House and my dad found like $800 in cash on the ground. He decided, like only my dad would, to turn it in to the cops in front of the WH. They made him fill out some paperwork to place an ad in the paper. Then we started to walk back to our hotel. We got several blocks when a Suburban pulled up on the wrong side of the street and the cop my dad gave the money to got out and explained he was secret service. They couldn't believe what we did and offered to give us the real tour of the White House. They gave us a tour of everywhere you don't get to see: Oval Office, The Press Room, bricks left over from when the WH burned down, the Lincoln Statue outside the Oval Office, etc. They told us great stories. Two quick ones: To enter the Press Room, you have to go outside the White House and down some steps. It was originally going to be a pool but Nixon's approval ratings were low so he made it into a Press Room. (it's REALLY TINY!) The most guarded object in the WH is the Nobel Peace Prize, there is one SS guy there to protect it at all times.

Funny thing is my sister was really bitter because she wasn't there, now she works in the White House, Office of Management and Budget.

btw: no one claimed the money and we got to keep it!

I've been hearing rumors about a new NHL team here too durring the summer. Ever since we built the new arena hockey has become more popular again so hopefully something will come of it.

I still remember the day when we lost the Jets like it was yesterday.

Now if only the rest of our sports teams can do as well as the Manitoba Moose. Then maybe Winnipeg wouldn;t suck so much.

I went to breakfast once with my husband at The Pancake House and as we are walking up, about 15-20 feet ahead of me, I see a group of guys. I think to myself, "Hmm, Can it really be? I know they live around here..."
Sweet ride by the way.

We wait to be seated and about 3 tables away is sure enough, Blink 182. As we're eating our bananas and whipped cream a lady walks up to them and asks for their autograph. At this point I'm thinking my hands are grubby and i need to wash them.

I get up not long after the lady leaves and have to walk right past their table to get to the restroom. As I'm walking back I pass their table and I'm not 6 feet from them when they look up, along with their agent, to see what I was going to do.
At that point I'm thinking, "Yes I know who you are and frankly don't give a damn nor do I want your autograph." :P
Rather amusing as we are all staring at each other for what seemed like a long time only in reality was it a few seconds.

Not long after that encounter at the restaurant did my husband and I run into Tim Conway from The Carol Burnett Show.

Once while looking for a hotel in San Diego we ran into former Steelers wide reciever Lynn Swan. He was so nice. He even gave us directions to where we needed to go.
Funny thing is I had no clue who he was but as we were walking away my husband said to me, "I know that man from somewhere but I can't place it. Dammit! Who is he??" We get another 20 feet and it hits him. At this point my husband is kicking himself wishing he got a picture but by this point Lynn Swann was already gone.

Some years ago when Janet Jackson owned a home in San Diego my husband ran into her at a surf shop he use to work at. She came in with a few of her dancers. He chatted it up with her for a few minutes too.

Yes! i am not the only one here who likes Tegan and Sara!

I met them a couple times actually, but one time i actually got to talk with them for like 20 minutes or so. They are very very nice and really tiny.

Plus it's all their fault that i even got into designer jeans anyways. At one of thier concerts i went to they mentioned something about only wearing deisel and from them on i have had this jeans obsession.....

Well, I don't think I personally have had anything happen to me that qualifies as fame...

But since the thread has taken the "what celebrities live near you" turn, I've seen these folks who all live here around my town (westchester county NY).

Bryant Gumbel, David Letterman (driving his sweet cars), Mariah Carey (who was briefly in the mental hospital the next town over too), Mike Richter, Susan Sarandon & Tim Robbins (who are both very non-celebrity like when they are out. My exboyfriend used to mess around with Tim when he worked at the local grocery store in high school though, including a funny story about giving Tim a box full of old rotting limes when he was the produce manager). Bill & Hilary Clinton also came & looked at a house right up the road from mine when they were looking to buy a house to move to NY so Hilary could run for senator.

I also went to college with the daughters of Tom Hanks, Sally Struthers, and Samuel L Jackson, and Anne Hathaway (Princess Diaries) was a few years below me too. I went to high school with Richard Nixon's grandson, but aside from getting us a super good tour of the white house on a school trip to DC, he was pretty much just a tool.
