Yes.

Whoopee!

But, still not converted, Jesus smoked. Ugh!

Bucket list material for sure.

If you have something snarky to say I don't give a shit. I met the 42nd and 45th presidents of the United States inside of three months.

Fuck the Clintons you had lunch with Richard Dawkins?
Lucky, I'm jelly as fuck. How'd you score that?

One of my former colleagues is the CEO for his foundation and he was in town promoting his book, A Brief Candle in the Dark, so I went, got a signed book and sat with him at lunch. A nice chat and so gracious.

Once while briefly working in a shoe store at the Forum Shops in Las Vegas (the mall connected to Caesars Palace), I sold shoes to Wee Man.

I once met Daffy Duck. After that I went to school naked, then my teeth fell out.

RE: I met Bill Clinton tonight
That's pretty neat. I've met people that've meet George W. Bush. And even if they didn't like the guy still got exsited for meting a member of history, or fame.

I work as a bellman at a hotel for 5 years. And got to meet a bunch of Celebs.

Goldberg (WWE) (jerk)
Tim Allen (Bad tipper $2 bucks for 20 large bags)
Martin Lawrence (Great tipper $20 for 2 small bags)
Tony Bennett (Nice guy, scared the shit out of him though because before his gigs he closes himself off with head phones a newspaper, so when I walked in his room to drop of his stuff he was shocked to see me there)
Gabriel Iglesias (Talked more with his pose then him)
Daniel Tosh (quiet)
Richard Anderson (Oscar Goldman from the Six Million Dollar man) (Huge asshole)
Chuck Barry (not talkative, and was kind of racist. Didn't want to talk to white people.)
Chubby Checker (the same)
And a couple of others that were famous at a time or in their own areas. Like playboy centerfolds, Japanese pop bands, or Filipino performers.

A regular we the grand daughter of Joe DiMaggio. (I know it was some relation) Huge tipper. $100 bucks anytime she saw you.

RE: I met Bill Clinton tonight
Actually met quite a few while working first as a convention porter as later as a VIP host at Mandalay Bay. It sure is interesting seeing their personalities when away from the public. Probably the most memorable was Bon Jovi. Some celebrities go out of their way to avoid all contact with people until the moment of their performance, and If they did have to interact with is made it clear they didn't see us as equals. Bon Jovi, on the other hand, was hanging out in the service hallway chatting with the staff and playing his guitar.

That's cool. Yeah, I've met hundreds of celebrities over the years as a sports journalist and I'm not one of those people that get nervous or whatever. It was just nice to meet the people I support to run this country, and in Dawkins' case, a person who made my deconversion easier.

No, I agree with you. That would be a fun experience. I wish I could have.

Richard Nixon kissed me while campaigning in Texas in '67. Not sure what else that rotten bastard did, but I trust my mom didn't let it go too far.
