I once sat next to that kid who played the youngest kid on Eight is Enough at Disneyland.
I lived in the guest house on the property of Don Wilson. Who is Don Wilson? He is one of the founders and still plays rhythm guitar in the Ventures. Who are the Ventures? Ever hear of "Wipe Out," "Hawaii 5-0," "Pipeline," "Apache," "Secret Agent Man," "Telestar," "Walk Don't Run," etc.? John Fogerty presented them with their "Hall of Fame" Award in 2008. They are known as the most popular surf music band in history. I never knew who would be sitting on their coach when I got the call to "come on over to the big house." Don and his wife, Jan are very nice people, too!
I also worked on a portion of Robert Redford's will. Now, DON'T ask me who he is! When I first met him, I turned around and walked straight into a wall. Thankfully, he laughed. My response was "You MUST know you have that affect on women." They still tell that story at that law firm.
Having worked in entertainment law for 6 of my 30 years as a legal assistant/paralegal, I won't go into who I used to talk with and work with. Suffice it to say, out of all of them, the only really nice people I met through that association was Don Wilson and Robert Redford (who has a hell of a sense of humor).
But, you can't help see celebrities almost on a daily basis in Southern California. Sithy will find out!
In 1988 I went to see Bon Jovi in Atlanta. Stayed in the Atlanta Hilton and Towers, where little did we know, a Star Trek convention and Fantasy Fair was being held at the same time.
After the concert, we were at the bar swilling very expensive drinks and sitting right beside me was this very attractive man. He was taling to someone two chairs down and I kept thinking "I have heard that voice before!"
It was Michael Dorn from The Next Generation! I had never seen a picture of him without the Worf makeup. Super nice guy! And a great voice!
As a youngster, I went to an autograph signing at a local mall with the recently retired Hank Aaron (the TRUE homerun king). Anticipating a huge crowd my parents and I went early, but there was a huge violent rainstorm that hit accompanied by flooding etc. It wound up being Hank, his agent and us. We talked to him for some time and a classier, more down to earth individual you'll never find. Maybe if Barry Bonds had taken a page out of Aaron's book instead of his father's and BALCO, he wouldn't be the pariah he is today.

Yeah – I knew that was confusing as I wrote it. I blame it on being tired.
I met congressman and former Seattle Seahawk, Steve Largeant, a number of times. /ohmy.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='' />

Well, I met The Godfather in Knoxville! We saw Psycho and went on a really crowded ghost hunt!
(and MK, it doesn't count that you LIVE with him!)
Hee hee … I don't think I can top that AH. Oh wait, The Godfather is here with me now. No ghosthunting yet, but lots of other fun activities … get your minds outta the gutter /laugh.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='' />
Well, I shook Micky Mouse's hand at work today. Top that. /sleep.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='' />
Yah yah well Micky Mouse made me cry at Disney world when i was a child then Minnie Donald and Pluto came to comfort me!
(of course the reason i was crying was because I thought the TV Micky was actual size so they just made matter worse.)
2012? Seriously? I survived Y2K, 9/11, 6/6/6, 9/9/9, H1N1, & Swine Flu. BRING IT ON!!!
