Something tells me she is a government assassin.

Astronauts are cool and all, but I'd like to meet someone that has landed on Mars. Now that would be a major achievement!

Back in 2006, I bumped into Shaquille O'Neal in a mall down in Miami when he was with the Heat(gross).

I didn't really notice it was him at first. How oblivious of me because he was 7'1" and walking right by me. I turned around to ask for his autograph, but before I could finish a swarm of people charged at him and he ran off. He ended up "trying" to hide in a Coogi purse store..... -___-

I agree. Pop stars come and go. The men I met will be in history books a thousand years from now.

Back then I was managing IT support programs for govt clients - a contractor. I'm doing more nuts-and-bolts engineering now. I just like making stuff work right.

(At least that's the story I'm sticking to!)

I have a friend who was in the Air Force. Once while in an airport, I believe in Puerto Rico, he said he was in uniform sitting at a table by himself drinking a beer and Van Johnson came over and asked if he could join him. My friend said they had a great conversation and Van was interested in my friend's name, rank, career, etc. Several days later my friend received a card from Van telling my friend how much he had enjoyed meeting him.
