Friday Five: Brushes with Greatness

Reverendmother here...

In the coming days, I'll be meeting my creative/artistic role model--a singer-songwriter who has been a part of my spiritual journey for some 10 years now. I'm psyched!

David Letterman used to have a feature on his show called "Brushes with Greatness." Members of the audience would share stories of encounters with famous people. And so...

1. Tell us about a time you met someone famous.

2. Tell us about a celebrity you'd like to meet.

3. Tell us about someone great who's *not* famous that you think everyone oughta have a chance to meet.

4. Do you have any autographs of famous people?

5. If you were to become famous, what would you want to become famous for?

Bonus: Whose 15 minutes of fame was up long, long ago?

As always, let us know if you play. Here's the code to link directly:

    who REALLY really has to get back to her classwork now!!!

  2. Friends, Blogger seems to be experiencing something along the lines of rolling blackouts, so don't be surprised if you can't get through to a link. Just try later. Thanks!

  3. Hello, fabulous folks! Great topic. Love the entries thus far! (Also *heart* the cat pic, and boy, do we agree on the grating Paris or what?!)
    My goofy take is up!

  17. I envy all you all who have had brushes with greatness. Who know greatness. I wracked my brain and could not come up with one person. Nope not one. I sure live a boring life here in AL.

  18. I am a rookie to this, but it looked like so much fun I couldn't pass it up. If anyone is still reading, stop by my blog to say hello.
