Hey, Aren't You...

Tell us a story about a personal brush with celebrity. Did a movie star stroll by in the park, were you on an elevator or plane ride with a rock star, or was there that one time (perhaps at band camp) where That One Guy was a special guest?

Hmm..let' see...

Okay so there's Fred Turner from BTO (Bachman Turner Overdrive) who is a family friend. My grandparents and his parents were best friends so we had annual family picnics together. If we got rained out, we'd go to Fred's house and have jam sessions in the basement.

At the Olympics, I met tons of athletes, working as an athletes' marshall. I was having a convo with a US athlete at one point and Lindsay Vaugh walked up and interrupted us. I stood 5 feet away from Anne Murray, Bobby Orr, Steve Nash, Donald Sutherland, Barbara Ann Scott, Michael Buble, Avril Levigne, William Shatner, and a few others at various times in the tunnel. I also had a brief conversation with Nancy Green.

Living in Vancouver, AKA Hollywood North, I've seen plenty of celebs over the years. We just take it in stride.

In 2 weeks, I will get to meet Rick Hansen, which I am REALLY excited about!
