Brushes with greatness

It seems like I've been spending a lot of time at The Jason Show (http://jason-thejasonshow.blogspot.com/2009/01/star-sighting-divine-miss-m.html) but who can blame me? He always has something fun going on and I enjoy his company. Last weekend he told the story of how he went to a concert and saw Bette Midler sitting in the audience and then asked what celebrity sightings we in blogland have had. I started to write up a comment but my list got so big that I thought that I should just make it a post on my own blog instead of taking up so much space on his comment section. So my list is below. I'm sure that it could be longer if I put more thought in to it, this is just off the top of my head. I have been very blessed to live in Southern California all of my life and especially to have lived in Hollywood/Beverly Hills and to have a relative in the biz.

I tried to identify some of the more obscure celebrities, but if you don't recognize them or if you want to know where I saw them just ask in the comments and I'll fill you in. Please note that none of these sightings are from events I paid to attend. (Well, some of them were people I saw at events I paid to attend but I saw them in the audience...they weren't who I paid to see.) That list would be twice as long!

Holy cow! That is quite a list. I have lived in Socal all my life and have seen like 3 and that includes Bette Midler at the Dan Band show. I am especially jealous of George Clooney. He's on my "list". I truly love him.
