One time, at a concert, I sat behind Kevin Bacon and his wife.
Once, at another concert, I tripped over Matt Groening trying to get to my seat.
One time I saw the channel 9 news sports guy eating dinner at the Tick Tock Diner and he looked at me as I walked past him on the way to my seat.
Dave Navarro said my name on TV.
One time I saw Jennifer Esposito walking her dog in NYC.

I have worked with a brother of a winner of olympic silver medal in heptathlon, and my boss was a brother of kids' TV show host. That about it.

Rosie O'Donnell walked by me at an Elton John concert once.
A friend of my mom's shared an elevator ride with Elton John once.
My father's pool guy in Atlanta was also the pool guy of Elton's partner before David Furnish.

I babysat Olympic Gold medalist Sarah Hughes' skates at the 2003 US Nationals.
I watched from about 10 feet from where Michelle Kwan was giving an interview.
Two soap stars follow me on Twitter.

I got a hockey puck signed by Dave Coulier.

(Are these supposed to be real or fake?)

I once browsed WOWAY in the same room as Bob Odenkirk.

I've had two of my "catchphrases" read on Comedy Bang! Bang!:The Podcast (episodes 127 & 263) by Scott Aukerman!

I got to hold Tig Notaro's feet in a photo that all of the St. Louis comedians were in (I'm one of them) when she came through in 2013!

I don't think meeting people and having your photo taken with them at a meet-and-greet at a show you went to counts, right?
(If so, then I guess Doug Benson, Todd Barry, Paul F. Tompkins, Neil Hamburger, and more?)

The actress Rachael Leigh Cook was my student in Latin I for about 6 weeks, before she left for Hollywood.
