So WHO did you meet that was famous?

Clarissa said...

I was going to ask the same thing as Lucy??!?!?

E. said...

Ummm...maybe met is taking it a little too far. I was once within a metre of Kevin Costner at the Rocks in Sydney one evening.

I'm sure he had have spoken to me if I'd been wearing my formfitting little black dress (when I still had a form that looked good with fitted clothing) that I had packed but it was a very cold night so I was wearing jeans.

Sorry to disappoint. :)

Oh I'm going to have to do this tomorrow! I love little getting-to-know-you things like this!

PS: Your celebrity story is still cooler than mine. I saw Tracy Chapman about 30 feet away at an airport. That's it. My life so lacks in glamour.

Bethwyn said...

I've met John Williamson. Ooooh, that's totally cooler than Kevin Costner and Tracy Chapman :P Just kidding, it is of course totally embarrassing and I wouldn't expect anyone under 25 to know who the hell he is.
