Writer's Block: Starstruck

Have you ever met anyone famous?


Michael Phelps. It was the year before he won his 8 golds. He was really nice, very polite, which sort of surprised me because I'd always heard he was a douchebag. And I met (swimmer/2-time Olympian/multiple Gold medalist) Natalie Coughlin the same night. She's a sweetheart & so pretty.

(Also, Walt Willey who used to play Jackson Montgomery on All My Children [he was hilarious] and the band The Guess Who [all very friendly & talkative].)

(Oh, and James Dean's high school art/drama teacher Gurney Mattingly was my art teacher in 4th grade. He was sort of famous, right lol? At least by association. Mr Mattingly was like 90-years-old and as mean as sin.)

Awwh, Michael Phelps! I adore him. I believe I used to have a mrsphelps screen name on AIM. Shh.

I'm super impressed by you having James Dean's teacher. I'm like this :O

MP is so freakishly awesome.

I like the James Dean teacher thing cause it's my one degree of separation from James Dean ;)

With all the meets I've been to, I'm surprised I haven't met/run into Phelps yet (I kept on running into Aaron Peirsol) (actually, he literally ran into me) (it's a good problem, so I'm not complaining). I have this uncanny knack of sitting her his mom so I have a crapload of pictures where it looks like Phelps is looking right at me, but really he's looking at his mom who is sitting two rows up.

Getting run over by Aaron Peirsol was one of my dreams!

That's awesome about the pics. Did you ever talk to his mom? Did she seem nice? I just ask cause we were @ the restroom sinks near his mom & one sister once and the sister was a GRADE-A BITCH (trying to keep the peasants away from her mom, when no one was even approaching her mom).

I've been lucky to have Aaron run into me twice. The first time I was waiting in line and he had to squeeze around. The other time he was signing autographs, but had to leave. I had just helped some kid get an autograph and Aaron backed into me (he touched my shoulder and apologized for stepping on my foot. I tried not to act like a 12 year old girl).

I never actually meet Phelps' mom. I always feel like enough of a creeper, and didn't want to test the limits. But it amuses my friends when it looks like Phelps is looking right at me.

Man, I really want to go to another swim meet.

I was hoping to get to another swim meet before the Olympics and they all retire! *cry*, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen :(

Right?! She's gotten something from Air Force One from the last few presidents

(ahhh true, damnit. lol I'm sure they'd be honored to know they made it that far)

OMG THAT IS AWESOME!!! I want something from Air Force One! If the pilot is hot, I'll take him....KIDDING!!!

(WHAT IF I HAVE TO GIVE UP SWIMMING DUE TO LACK OF FAVORITES?!?!?! And it will always be my great regret that I never got to meet Peirsol [though seeing him set 2 world records was one of the highlights of my life]. Also, not being all *grabby hands* when standing behind PVK @ Chik-fil-A lolololol.)

LOL you totally shoulda patted his ass

This totally reminds me of the first swim meet I ever went to (and the one where I ended up behind PVK @ Chik-fil-A). My mom & I sat next to these 2 older ladies...60s at least...and the one turned to us out of the blue and says "I want to touch one of them." And mom & I were both O_o even though I have NO PROBLEM with the wanting to touch but then she went onto to explain that they looked so muscley, she wanted to know what that felt like ;)

I am right there with you.

The mall where I saw PVK @ the food court has 4 hotels attached AND they just happen to be the hotels the swimmers stay @ for meets. JUST SAYIN' ;)

(AND this was back when Phelps was with Club Wolverine & CW had so many smokin' hot swimmers it wasn't even fair to the other clubs lol.)

Fist of an angry god ain't seen NOTHIN YET lololol.

OMG could you imagine how obnoxious I'd be then? I mean, think of how many times I mention standing behind him in line @ Chick-fil-A and multiply it by eleventy-billion. Like every single one of my posts would be along the lines of "Being a weepy, pathetic ~girl again today. Ate an entire 6-pack of cupcakes today out of self-loathing. So glad it's Friday, even though I have a family 'thing' tomorrow. BUT HEY, REMEMBER THAT TIME I BOINKED PVK?!?!?" lolololololololol ;) ;) ;) ;)
