1. Who was your last celebrity sighting? Who was the biggest celebrity sighting?

2. What's for dinner?

3. How hot is it by you?

I have to say the most down to earth approachable celeb I've met in my 8 years at the theater was Lily Tomlin-- she was hysterical - stayed for hours after her show posting for photos, signing pictures and just joking around with us... the other was Ed Asner who was here in a play based on the Scopes Monkey Trial - he actually cornered my wife for ever at the after show reception.. on the way home she said "so, what do you want to know about Asner's bad hip? he told me everything"  but he was a great and funny guy.  Also in that show were John Delancie (NERD ALERT: "Q" on Star Trek:TNG )  and Harry Groener (NERD ALERT: the Mayor from "Buffy") and they were so nice it was unbelievable... I had the longest talk with them about fundraising sustainable support for theater and when they left they both gave me huge huge hugs... that was one night I'll never forget. 

another person I met who I felt truly changed me by meeting him was Bishop Tutu.. he could make you feel you were the only person on the planet when he talked to you.. so kind and gentle and he puts hot sauce on EVERYTHING...I was pregnant when I met him when he spoke at an event I ran and I remember his message of forgiveness and reconciliation above all else and I thought "I am truly changed by this.." it was something

In my banking years, I opened accounts for a local news anchor.  I got some intimate financial details on her, Lucky me.   Lol.

Yes. Forgive me for respecting people who actually work for a living on tv a bit more than attention whores who do nothing. Priorities.

"I was unaware that being convicted in court of lesser charges made someone a coward." ----------- All I know is that he was in terrible shape for a long, long time. He was going out with Jennifer Grey back then, and she pretty much nursed him back to health.

lol. You can go to our local Costco and see our local news anchors. While they ARE on TV, I wouldn't consider them a "celebrity". lol

FWIW I also know someone that met Tom Brokaw, He met him in Afghanastan when he was serving, Everyone knew he had an assignment there and were prepared to meet him...  Off camera he's a real sloth and egomaniac, he asked them if they were thrilled to meet him and if they wanted his autograph, Oh my.  I used to have tremendous respect for Brokaw and his reporting but not so much anymore after hearing what that guy told me.

I'm surprised you would bring that up. DH's client list includes a former governor and a US Senator but he would never talk about their financials. Rather unethical, don't you think?

I should be ashamed that in a post where you mention Bishop Tutu, I get a huge nerd SQUEEEE from John Delancie and Harry Groener.  I should be.

But I'm not. :D
