At risk of further lowering my karma, I must share with you all the following. Somewhere between 11pm and 1am last night, I passed Justin Bieber's touring motorhome on I-5 Southbound coming into Los Angeles. His name was pasted all over the side of it, so I know it's true. And in further support of my claims, while looking for musical events here in Los Angeles, I saw that he's performing at Staples Center in Los Angeles tonight. Woo Hoo!

I dare any of you to top that.

I was on Haight street one year.

Out of a head shop walked the king, Joe Montana with a hottie (not wife) in tow.

I yelled, 'Hey Joe' he turns, I yell 'Go Cheifs!'

He told me we had great BBQ.

Tony Hawk once ollied over my head while transitioning from one vert pipe to a mini ramp...

I have had dinner backstage with Dave Matthews...

I belayed Hans Flourine at a competition at Pacific Edge...

I once yelled "Thank you" during a quiet pause before the encore at a Jeff Bridges concert and he nodded to me, I was sitting four seats to the left of his wife...

I taught Casey Stoner and his wife how to belay with a Gri-Gri at my gym...

I personally know this kid who can make 118 three's in 5 min:

I did offwidth yesterday in Tuolumne with Elliott Robinson... (this is the top of the list...)

How is all that? I mean, you did ask who could top it...

I met Steven Tyler on a flight to Kona a few years ago.

One of the greatest moments of my life (with only a little sarcasm).

I was a maid at the Ahwahnee in 1975-76 and had the top floors as my rooms to clean. Years later, the Queen of England slept in one of those rooms.

I worked on a movie with Arte Johnson. It was verrrry interesting, not to
mention unbelievably fun.

In one of his quieter moments.  There weren't a lot.

This is true, I kid you not.

My sister in law's ex husband is with a lady whos ex husband's mother married Dave Matthews' father.

Here in the south that makes us related.

Went to dinner with Todd Rundgren (yeah, only you geezers will know who he is!) in Boston's North End during a MacWorld Expo years ago. At another San Francisco MacWorld, I went to a party at his house in Sausalito.

In addition to being an interesting musician, he was also involved in software development. If anyone remember Flowfazer on the Mac from ages ago, that was his product. Kind of an on-screen lava lamp. Given the crowd I worked with in those days, it all kinda made sense for him to create that.

Well, whaddaya know... it's still around!

I ran around a corner without looking and crashed into another guy who was doing the same thing.... twice (on separate occasions). That guy was Steve Jobs.

I saw Mel Gibson in Telluride once.

He's short and can't act.

Sh!t, Mel Gibson has been to my house. And he still can't act.
OK, he was filming a scene next door. What's the difference?
And he smokes like a chimney! What a wanker.

Shook Craig Kelly's hand at the Alaskan one night circa 2000.

Too many other pros to list since I jumped the Canal. None of them half as cool except maybe Jeremy Jones, but he's practically a local.

Way out there....
