I've met all the members of The Hush Sound 3 or 4 times.

and 2 of the guys from OK Go.

I've stood 3 feet away from Brendon, Ryan and Jon from Panic At The Disco before. Twice actually. Once when they were getting a drink and another right before they walked into the back entrance of where they were about to play. I was too shy to go talk to them though.

My moms old best friend used to live with the lead singer of Hinder.

Another one of my moms old friends daughters ate pancakes with Pete and Patrick of Fall Out Boy at IHOP. Way before they were famous.

and that's about it.

No, I hate that I haven't . The closest thing I've come to even being a near a famous person was watching Chicago in London last year with that Duncan guy from Blue.

When I was 8 my mom and I ran into Brad Pitt at a Wal-Mart in my hometown of Springfield Missouri, (which is also Brad Pitt's hometown)! I never actually spoke to him, but it was still pretty exciting. It was back when he had his long hair-do and beard.

I have met the country singer Josh Turner before he became famous. He really does have a very deep voice in person!

Simon Cowell (judge from American Idol). My cousin, her friends and I were in a SUV stretch limo going downtown and they recognized him driving. I don't watch that god awful show but I waved anyways. We were at a stop light so she pulled down the window, shouted out to him, he popped his head up, waved then the light went green.

Megadeth, Jon Bogdanov (really only famous if you're into Superman comics, which I'm not), um...a few artists that are locally famous. I've met John McLean's daughter, she's a hottie. The lead singer of Hatebreed. I waited in line with him for a bathroom.


Searching my heart for its true sorrow,
This is the thing I find it to be:
That I am weary of words and people,
Sick of the city, wanting the sea;

Wanting the sticky, salty sweetness
Of the strong wind and shattered spray;
Wanting the loud sound and the soft sound
Of the big surf that breaks all day.

-Exiled, Edna St. Vincent Millay

I've once met David Tennant. But I'd love to meet more. For anyone who hasn't met anyone famous it's not as good as you think. But fun to tell people about!

Amy Winehouse went to the same secondary school as me and was in my brothers form class.
So did Rachel Stevens, but lets be honest - she really didn't have much of a career :bleh

I also saw Mark Owen from Take That on the tube. He was with some hippy lady with a guitar and she was speaking in sign language.

Um, lots of you probably haven't heard of this show unless you live in Canada, but I've met a couple actors from Corner Gas. My friend and I also met Gabe Saporta from Cobra Starship. I have a picture of us with him, actually. We look so short
