7/22/10 OFFTOP: Brushes with Greatness

Inspired, or revolted, by CapSea's Nate Robinson story in the last OFFTOP, I have a few simple questions:

1.  Have you ever met a famous person?
2.  Was that famous person interested in meeting a commoner such as yourself (no offense - you're awesome!), or were they the stereotypical "I'm a star and you're not" that we hear so much about?
3.  Have you ever gawked at a celebrity that you didn't meet - say, that one time you saw Big Movie Star X walking down the street, did you stop and stare and try to get a picture or just go "oh, that's X" and go on about your business?
4,  Do you care about whether someone is a celebrity or not?

So there's your prompts.  You've been prompted.  Now respond. Promptly.
