I thought it might be interesting to list every celebrity I've seen at short-range since I've been in LA.
Criterion for 'seen' is: being near enough to be able to walk up and touch them.
In roughly chronological order:
-Barbara Streisand, James Brolin
(same restaurant same night, both people, different tables)
(restaurant, wearing blue seersucker and looking plump)
-Heidi and Spenser
(no longer celebrities, I know, but at a Mexican restaurant--we had to sign release form to go into room where they were, b/c they were still on some reality show)
-the guy who plays Toby on the office
(at a stoplight near our old apartment, walking)
(at a restaurant, at the next table. I thought he was NOT David Caruso, and kept telling my wife how much the sad broken man sitting with the woman who was clearly a prostitute at the table next to us resembled David Caruso. She kept making "shut it" motions at me. Until I realized--it was David Caruso!
That was fun!)
(at my park, going to walk)
(at my park, dropping off kids for soccer)
(at a Barnes and Noble, holding one of his kids on his shoulders, wearing flannel)
(I know, he's not really a celebrity. But he was on a Southwest flight with me).
(at our OLD favorite Italian restaurant, with his much younger wife. Trying to read menu in dark by light of iPhone.)
-LeAnn Rhimes--at our NEW favorite Italian restaurant.
-Harry Hamlin--also at our NEW favorite Italian restaurant.
-Hank Baskin (but without Kendra!)
at the airport flying to LA, from Santa Fe
This feels light. I can't recall all of them right now, but none are very interesting. But when I think of more, I'll update. Don't worry!
