And I mean actually met, not just spied from afar.

Mine's Sir Edmund Hillary.

The Smashing Pumpkins

By then, March of 2000 the band was close to disbanning. I met them when they released their album 'Machina:The Machines Of God' and decided to do a promo signing at the HMV Record Store in New York. We were standing on the line for like 6 hours straight. The worst part is that for like 4 or 5 hours the line didn't move one inch and we were close to giving up. Besides, it was early March and it was freezing cold like you couldn't imagine.
I'm not exactly the biggest SP fan on earth (although I love their material from 'Siamese Dream' and 'Mellon Collie'). My friend Christine is a huge fan, so I decided to go with her and hope for a great chance to meet them. We came too late to see them play, but I guess people who were waiting since the early morning were the only ones lucky enough to see them. By the time the line started to move we got really excited. Billy Corgan looks like a gigantic alien, but I shook his hand and I told him that he and the band were awesome.

I also met Lindsay Lohan once, but that was long before she got the fake tities.

She's from Merrick in Long Island, NY. I happen to live in their neighbor town, Bellmore. I used to work at a supermarket back then, so one day Lindsay Lohan and her mom came to my register. For once I looked at her and I felt like I've seen her before. At that time she was only known for 'The Parent Trap', so I couldn't really tell who she was. It wasn't until my supervisor came to ask for an autograph for her daughter that I found out who she was.

I still wonder what guys find so hot about Lindsay Lohan (aside from the falsies). She has so many freckles that she looks like someone sprayed syrup all over her body.

Fefe Dobson (who I have a picture with in my profile), Ryan Malcolm (also have a photo with; unreleased), Nickelback (who I also had photos with; accidentally destroyed)

Otherwise, I've met the now-former mayor of Edmonton (Canada), Bill Smith, during the centennial celebrations in Edmonton last Oct. 8th. Very nice gentleman (unfortunately, I was one of the thousands who voted him out of office)

I've also met local A-Channel TV morning show celebrities Mark Scholz and Steve Antle (on seperate occasions each).

I met Manachm Pressler a few months ago. But that doesn't count, because I don't think hardly anyone even knows who he is.

Coretta Scott King, Courtney Love, and Max Cleland. I tried to put those in order from most to least famous, at least around these parts (if the Europeans haven't heard of Coretta Scott King, it ain't my fault).


God wants you to send me some money.

Rik Emmett (from Triumph)
Burton Cummings (The Guess Who)
Mike Foligno (NHL player)
George "The Animal" Steele (pro wrestler)

All were strictly fan/celebrity situations though I did shake hands with and obtain the autographs of those four.
