Almost-Famous Friday Five

Tell us about a time you met someone famous.
I once came within touching distance of humorist Dave Barry, at a writer's conference. I did not touch him.

Tell us about a celebrity you'd like to meet.
You know, honestly, I'm not terribly interested in meeting celebrities, unless it would be to help them find a pleasant hideaway somewhere in outstate Michigan where noone will recognize them and they can rest and recreate in peace...unless of course they're country singers or NASCAR drivers. (If you're a non-country, non-NASCAR celebrity reading this...I know places. E-mail me.)

Tell us about someone great who's *not* famous that you think everyone oughta have a chance to meet.
My pastor is pretty cool. And he has great stories.

Do you have any autographs of famous people?
I used to have a fake autograph of George Harrison, back when I was in junior high school and thought that George was the coolest Beatle.

If you were to become famous, what would you want to become famous for?
Writing something very, very good.

Bonus: Whose 15 minutes of fame was up long, long ago?
Anyone featured on Access Hollywood.

Although it begs the question: How does LutheranChik know who's featured on Access Hollywood?
