          My sister and I got to meet Jason Earles who played Jackson Stewart on Hannah Montana. He was signing autographs at a car show in Atlanta. My sister and I didn't get to talk to him much (the security people kept the line moving rather quickly.) But I had just enough time to tell him that it was an honor to meet him and how funny he was. And he was really nice and said he was glad we loved the show. And as we were walking away from the table my sister (who was about six or seven at the time) turned back and yelled one of his lines from the show: "I'm rolling in money Rico!" He seemed to get a kick out that. 😂❤️

                Literally all of these are "not quite related but..." if you can't write on topic, dont fucking post. So sick of this shit, I want to watch what the video is actually supposed to be about, no one cares about your 3rd grade field trip where you met some 3rd rate no-name "celebrity "

                  20 years ago my boyfriend at that time heard on the radio that showing the last record of Counting Crows he could win two tickets for a concert. So we attended the concert at the Hard Rock in Madrid (sooo good) and then there were some drinks and stuff. Wow, we didn't expect that all the band was with the people chatting and signing autographs. I couldn't speak English by then, but they were very kind and It was a pretty cool experience.

                      My grandpa has a high ranking job in MA, he works closely with companys like tesla and microsoft. One time, we were in boston ready to open up a tesla showroom, and my grandpa was talking to ELON MUSK so naturally i went over and talked with them for a bit. Eventually elon offered me a ride in his car. So i was strolling through the streets of boston with fricking Elon Musk. Everyone looked and was like who tf is that with Elon. It was a great day.

                                    My kids dad was chosen to fly from Canada to LA to attend a Playboy mansion party. Only a few of them from our work got to go. Everyone thought I wouldnt want him there. Really?!! I helped him pack and lent him my camera to take a ton of pics!(back before smart phones) he stripped down to his boxers and jumped in Heffs pool alone. a bunch of playboy bunnies jumped in with him(the pool was empty cause it was chilly they said) Anyway, he started a frenzy cause a ton of people ended up all jumping in the pool with their clothes on(bunnies in bikinis) while his boss stood on the edge and took at LEAST 75 pictures lol. There were a bunch of famous people there. Rock stars especially. Lots of pics! Once in a life time opportunity for him

                                      Twist ending: everybody got along together and good vibrations permeated every moment. I was waiting for dumpster fires, but the dumpsters were actually Easter baskets lined with fleece and full of lovable puppies and kittens. Thank you for raising my spirits on a rough day.

                                                I used to be really into Heathers, so when I went to Wicked in October 2018 and realized that Ryan McCartan (the original JD) was playing one of the characters, I was ecstatic. I ended up going, with a small group of other people, to the stage door to wait for the actors to emerge. Some of the smaller actors came out and signed our playbills...and then Ryan McCartan came out. I waited for him to get to me, and as he was signing my playbill, I asked, "didn't you play JD?"
                                                And he responded, "well, not tonight."
                                                I then asked for a picture with him, but as my phone was turning on, I realized I didn't know how to take a selfie...so I took a photo OF him.
                                                To this day, it's one of my most treasured photos.

                                                          From India I had a vacation in the country called the Philippines, I met some Filipino friends and they invited me to join the raffle of who wins a date from this celebrity Xian Lim, so I did it for them and it’s only for fun anyway, I realistically dint think I’d win that, but at my surprise I did, and eventually dated him, he’s more fun behind the camera than in front of the camera when he had to act more professional and out of his real character, behind the camera he asked about my culture, foods and ways of living, etc,etc and he also told me about his acting career and introduced me to his friends, we had this thing in common that we get judged over our straight forwardness he even thought me the Filipino word for it “pranka” means you are brutally honest and tell things what it is, where we UNINTENTIONALLY offend people seems it seemed normal to us. You know it’s like PART OF YOUR BODY ALREADY, it’s like a heart if you remove it you’re dead, in personality that means the same way in a different kind of way and not physical death, you can’t change your heart only you can find people you have compatible hearts with will work for you. That’s what we had in common, anyway, obviously, that was just no serious date we ended up as really great friends, not that my mother wants me to be in an arranged marriage in fact my mom is one of those rare Indians that allows me to marry whoever I love, now I’m married with someone (not Xian Lim) but a man I love. Just to add up, since I feel it’s more important cause many foreigners are curious about my culture so there you go.

He came to my school and talked to our class and signed our books. In fourth grade we had a video chat with Bart Starr and we got to ask him a bunch of questions, he was a great guy R.I.P. This one wasn’t me, but my dad met Brian Dawkins (Eagles player), because his job gave him and his coworkers tickets and they were able to meet the football players.

He seemed nice but a crew member advised our group to give him space bc he was in a car accident that killed 2 people a couple years ago and dosent like going out in crowds anymore. He was very nice but you could tell he sorta wanted to get out of there.

We had a campsite and lived north of dannamora and were scared caused people have stolen stuff from our campsite before. My friend lived 30ft away from where they came up and he has a habit of walking around at night. It was pretty freaky. But, Ben Stiller was there and he met not me but my aunt and cousin and because of the traffic he bought free food for everyone at dunking for a week. He’s a really nice dude and one of my family friends worked as an extra police officer on set.

He didn’t do public appearances often like this and said he was nervous but he gave me painting advice and we talked about how we would go about building a diorama of the pyramid of Photep and a April fools video idea. He signed my killteam rule book too.

I told him I had been watching him since I was 15 and was inspired by him and other artists to be a tattoo artist (I’m 23 now when I met him I was 21) and it was the definition of never meet your hero’s. He was so disrespectful and never made eye contact with me. I cried so hard and wanted to give up even trying to get an apprenticeship and tattoo. In retrospect this was a good experience because now I’m a year into my apprenticeship surrounded by the best and most encouraging people
