I am SO SO SO not proud to admit to this.

I shook Ricky Martin's hand at a concert.. LOL!! (A friend from BC won tickets in Calgary and needed someone to go to..so they were front row tickets and thought..why not.. LOL).

Other than that, I've met Kurt Browning (canadian figure skater) and I knew Jerome Iginla (Calgary Flames player (NHL)) when he was young since he was on my brother's little league team.

I met Kate Goslin from Kate Plus Eight at her book signing. She was very cold and rude.

I met Michael Clarke Duncan from The Green Mile. I used to work in downtown chicago at my school's bookstore...and he was walking down Michigan Avenue...one of my co-workers saw him, screamed, "hey that's that guy you like!" (as The Green Mile had just come out a year earlier...

So myself and another co-worker ran after him to get his autograph.

Also Met Carol Burnett at my college, too, she was there to talk about something, can't remember what. lol.

I met the creator of the comic strip / cartoon on cartoon network "The Boondocks" - his name is Aaron McGruder.

I met Jo Dee Messina at a signing she did in my home town at a KMart when I was a teenager...

I swear there's someone else and my mind is blank right now. lol

I walked by Molly Shanon when she was out on a walk with her son & husband in BH.

I attended a charity movie showing for the XFiles and had a Q&A panel with Frank Spotnitz, a producer.

I gave JT Snow (an old SFGiants player) some water when he was buying a car at the place I worked.

I just got back from autograph signings today. I met/got autos from Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick today and Brad Keselowski yesterday (this was my second time meeting him).

I've also met and got autographs from Jeff Gordon (It was my life long dream to meet him and I met him at Bristol in March), Kurt Busch, and Joey Logano.

If you don't know any of them, they are NASCAR drivers.

I met Michael Damian and Lauralee Bell a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG time ago, on separate occasions, they were doing signings in my home town. (If you know who both are, and their relation to each other, you may understand why I was stoked to meet them back then!)

I've met many pro golfers through my Dad.

I met Hall & Oates backstage at their concert in 4th grade.

I met all four members of Metallica a couple years ago after sleeping in a parking lot all night, then showering in a sink at Sears.

I met Lance Armstrong when I was 15 and he was 18. We were both racing in the same triathlon. Met several other professional triathletes then too.

I feel like there is another, but can't think of it now!

Oh ya, thought of the other. A few years ago, Comic-con was in San Diego. We had a couple friends in town that were going, so after they went one day, we went downtown to meet them for dinner. The whole cast of the Big Bang Theory was sitting at a table right across a half-wall from us! We didn't talk to them, they looked pretty private, but Johnny G left the restaurant to have a cigarette, so I followed him out Didn't talk to him or anything, but I stood pretty close!
