    Ive never met anyone famous and dont really care to since they are just people like me and Im obnoxious [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Im not sure if it counts but I used to live down the street from Charles Campbell the last person to ever be hung in the state of Washington.
    And once I was picked up hitch-hiking and harrassed/stalked by the green river killer, Gary Ridgway. Im sure you can all imagine how much joy that put into my little teenage heart.

    yep back in "87 or 88" the guy was a freak and a jerk! he picked me up and was pretty nice at first so I gave him my number and had him drop me off at the cemetary behind my moms house. kinda ironic now that I think of it, but I had every one drop me off and pick me up there since I was a teenager and didnt want the parents flippin out with strangers droppin me off and didnt want just anyone knowing where I lived. He called later and picked me up at the cemetary and we went pretty far south waay past seattle and parked in the woods. I know it sounds freaky but since I was underage I did alot of drinking parked in the woods so I didnt think much of it. But he started being a major jerk I cant say everything that happened but there was an arguement about prostitution. He wanted me to meet one of his friends at a store and told me he would pick me the next day or somethin I cant remember exactly heck it was like 20 years ago. I agreed just to get outta the darned truck and took off. I had no clue where I was so after I waited awhile I once again started hitch hiking and made it to the freeway and then got a ride home.
    After that I (and every female who answered the phone) got alot of threatening calls. After a couple of months he was really getting to be a pain and the threats went from bodily harm to death threats not just mine but the whole family. My parents were not so happy with me to say the least and they finally just changed the number when they realized he wasnt givin up.
    I almost soiled myself when I seen him on the news, he hadnt changed much only lost a bit of hair and a couple of grays and wrinkles. I never told my mom and she still doesnt know I figured out who it was. Ill tell ya though I was real happy to see him get convicted! what a JERK! I bet hes got all the celebrity jerks rooled up in one beat!

    One night me and one of my buddies were out at a local bar for the night and we were hustling at pool like we always did. We were still kings of the table and this great big black guy that looked like he could squish me with his thumb quietly asked if me and my buddy wanted to have a game of pool with Wierd Al Yankovic and one of his buddies. We thought he was full of $hit, at least until Wierd Al walked over to us and shook our hands. So we played against him and we beat him good. Let me tell you, he is a really bad pool player. He thought it was cool that we did not "let" him win and gave us each a ticket to his show the following night. We ended up giving our tickets to some friends because we were heading out to the lake but that was really cool none the less. So that is my one and only experience that I can share.

    I met Lorenzo Lamas from the show "Renegade". I also met his wife who played Cheyenne in that show. Real nice people. I got my picture taken with him standing by his harley. The black hummer was there too. I also met Clint Eastwood when he was filming Heartbreak Ridge. All I can say is, hes a jerk. I met the band White Snake in a rest area just north of Oceanside, Ca. I don't know what's up with these people but they were total jerks too.
    I also met this guy once, it was a long time ago...it was at the same rest area as above, I was helping someone fix their car and I had to go to the restroom. I got this wierd feeling that I was being watched. Big time. It seemed that everywhere I looked there was these "men in black" looking dudes. I was beginning to get real paranoid by then but I thought it was all in my mind. So I was getting ready to leave when they swooped on me. Turns out they were watching me. All these FBI agents were interrogating me, wanting to know who I am and how I knew this guy. I told them that I just met him and was helping him fix his car, etc..... turns out the guy I was helping was one of america's top 10 most wanted [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
