I once was running on a treadmill at a hotel in Vegas and Jay-Z started running on the treadmill next to me

When my ex-boyfriend worked at a gas station, he filled up Gordon Lightfoot's tank!

I'm pretty sure he was (this incident goes back to the early/mid-90s) because I remember him starting to mimick Gordon Lightfoot's singing in this deep, droning voice after he told me he's filled his car up earlier that day. I think Gordon actually drove a van or pick up truck (not car).

I am listening to a podcast interview with Eric Stonestreet. He was talking about when he did improv and mentioned one person as the best teacher he ever had. Well, that person was the guy who trained me how to teach LSAT prep classes. So I think that means Eric Stonestreet and I are now best friends. That's how it works, right?

My cousin's kid is on a new advertisement for a shop franchise here 20 seconds in for about a second. I'm totally claiming to have a celebrity in the family.

5-6ish years ago, I was writing and performing with a local sketch comedy troupe. Our producer had worked at Costco with 'Armchair Cynics' front man, Ken Coutu and managed to sweet talk him into playing at one of our shows and participating in one of the sketches.

During aforementioned sketch, Mr. Coutu broke character and exclaimed "What the $#@! is all over this chair!" while looking disgustedly at his hand. My fault. I was in the previous sketch, got cake and ice cream ALL over the chair, and forgot to wipe it down. We were a pretty low key operation, and didn't have a set crew to sort out that kind of thing.

My cousin's band was part of the Sir-Mix-A-Lot symphony video that's been going around.

This means I'm totally famous too right?

I just started watching True Blood. There's a customer who is a jerk to Sookie early on in the first season. I went to high school with that guy!

Seeing JoPa's avatar and actually noticing what it is reminded me that I may have smelled Bruce Dickinson's fart!

My friend was in a fencing club that Bruce Dickinson sometimes practised with, and when we went to a demo she introduced me and another person to him. While we were all chatting somebody farted, and it wasn't me, so there's a 1 in 3 chance that the fart I inhaled was famous!

Felix Howard, who was the boy in Madonna's Open Your Heart video, once bumped into me on a street in London. And apologised. This would have been in the late 80s, so he was still famous and my friends were very jealous.

So, based on the rules of celebrity, I am best buds with Madonna.

I went round the set of the Crystal Maze when I was about nine.

I touched things that were on TV.

A couple of years ago I walked past Lily Allen in the street when I was visiting family.
Not that long ago I saw Bonnie Tyler doing her weekly shop in the same aisle as me.
Yep.

There's going to be a beer named after a joke I made to the Dane in an email. Does that count? So, um, if you ever pick up a bottle of something with "Samba his Bongos Into Oblivion" in the name, think of me.
