How you uh, how you comin' on that novel you're working on? Huh? Gotta a big, uh, big stack of papers there? Gotta, gotta nice litte story you're working on there? Your big novel you've been working on for 3 years? Huh? Gotta, gotta compelling protaganist? Yeah? Gotta obstacle for him to overcome? Huh? Gotta story brewing there? Working on, working on that for quite some time? Huh? Yea, talking about that 3 years ago. Been working on that the whole time? Nice little narrative? Beginning, middle, and end? Some friends become enemies, some enemies become friends? At the end your main character is richer from the experience? Yeah? Yeah? No, no, you deserve some time off.
Saturday, my mom wakes me up at 8:30 in the morning (I was pissed at first because I wasn't supposed to wake up until 10:00 to get ready for work). Anyway, she tells me that Manny Legace was going to be at a hockey equipment store's grand opening in Howell, signing autographs. I was thrilled; it was really close to where I work in Fowlerville. I asked my boss if I could leave, she said yes and there I was. Although I expected to see a huge line there was about 4 or 5 people there, but people where coming and going. I had Legace sign my Red Wings 5 disc DVD and an old picture of him I had in a hockey book. He was really nice, but I couldn't stay long because I had to get back to work. All in all, it was an exciting 20 seconds of my life. LOL. It was my first Red Wing encounter, although my principal has gotten autographs for me before.
Has anyone else met any Wings (probably because I'm lame like that) or any celebrity for that matter? (In high school, this girl I new met Katie Holmes because her aunt was Katie Holmes' little sister's hair dresser and she said she was snobby.)
I've met tons. Road trips are great if you can get into the same hotel that the team is staying in. Like having the team at your finger-tips.
As far as celebrities, I've met Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, Rob Zombie, Ozzy, Eric Carr of Kiss, Randy "macho man" Savage, & Bill Goldberg. No movie stars that I can think of.
