My kind of Friday Five!

Okay, it's not *officially* Friday yet. Here. But it is somewhere, and the Friday Five is up, so... =oř

1. If you could eat dinner with and "get to know" one famous person (living or dead), who would you choose?
Um... lol. There are a good couple of famous people I'd love to have a chat with. Should I be totally silly? JC. <.g> I'm on that "one week until the concert" high right now.

2. Has the death of a famous person ever had an effect on you? Who was it and how did you feel?
Yes, and I'm trying to think. The one that comes to mind (although was certainly not the first OR last) is Aaliyah, which had me pretty shocked just because she was so close to my age. When any person dies it gets me kind of shook up. Famous or not.

3. If you could BE a famous person for 24 hours, who would you choose?
Hmm. Only 24 hours, right? I don't think I could handle longer. Um... someone really famous. If I'm gonna do it, I may as well really do it, ya know? Like Julia Roberts or somebody equally recognizable and loved.

4. Do people ever tell you that you look like someone famous? Who?
Jamie thinks I look like the girl who played Alex Mack and Bianca in 10 Things I Hate About You. <.shrug>

5. Have you ever met anyone famous?
Have I ever met anyone famous or have I ever seen anyone famous in person? I suppose my run-ins (all three of them <.g>) with Nick Lea would constitute a "meeting," as we chatted for more than five minutes. Oh, and Chris Owens was there, too. I think five minutes is the critical number there, the distinction between "meeting" and "seeing." I have *seen* (this is going to be quite a list.... lol) a bunch of people: David Duchovny, Minnie Driver, Bonnie Hunt, David Allen Grier (all during the Return to Me filming), Mitch Pileggi, Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood (Expo), the four of them plus William B. Davis, Gillian Anderson, and a bunch of bit players and writers at the Cure is Out There Cancer Benefit, and Chris Kirkpatrick at the Atlanta Fu Invasion Tour. And Lance was at the OTL Premiere Party, but that was even less than the others, because at least most of the others I got autographs from. I think that's everyone. Oh! Disney people! Forgot completely. I saw Rosie and John McDaniel when they filmed the Rosie Show in Animal Kingdom, sold water to BBMak (before their CD came out... d'oh! Had NO idea who they were at the time), saw Christina Aguilera, um... Eddie Money (whoever that is, it was on his jacket, lol), sold ice cream to him. Oh, we got our picture with Drew Carey at Rockin Roller Coaster when we went back to visit last Christmas. Saw John Travolta at Disney once when I was there on vacation and he came and chatted with our group for like 2 seconds (we were taking an animation class at MGM). Hmm. Anyone I'm forgetting? Oo, saw Richard Gere in the airport once. ha ha.

It's SAD that I had to look up some of those XF people's names. I USED to know them all like the back of my hand. =/

Isn't it so? I used to worship the X-files. Sigh. Sometimes series should just die before they get bad you know? Leave us with memories of wanting more instead of feeling sad for better days.

It is! I was horrified at not being able to remember Haglund OR Bruce Harwood. Ack!

And weren't those such nice memories of wanting more? Remember when an almost-offhand gaze and half-smile from Mulder could get everyone going for days? I miss that. Now I have the urge to find my tape of Bad Blood.

Yeah, and every Krycek episode was a cause for celebration and discussion on the UST. Well, to me it was anyway. Now he dies and I didn't even bother to watch it I was so bored. Bwah! Mulder, chasing after the trailer home. Or was that the wrong vampire episode? Oi, I can't even remember!
