    So the set up to this story...
    I work at a local tv news station here in CT. Use to seeing all sort of local politicians, goveners, senators, and congress persons. Old hat. But every once in a while, you get thrown a curve ball. So its towards the end of my shift (I work 2:30am to 11am) and I go to the bathroom. As I open the door, I literally walk into Lou Diamond Phillips.
    Yeah this Lou Diamond Phillips
    I say hello, he returned the greeting and walked out. Apperently he was there promoting his upcoming stint of the stage production of Camelot.
    Anyway...its was just a wierd, sureal moment. Just had to share to see if anyone else wierd celebrity moments.

    Celebrity or surreal?

    I had a BN S-3 in Iraq who was fixated on the existence of some sorta Iraqi Zorro-type character he had code-named "Rocket Man." He was convinced, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this guy was independently attacking us on the 1st and 15th of every month.

    He wasn't--hell, they don't even have the same calendar--but listening to this guy talk about him and realizing that he controlled my life (moving patrols around, doubling shifts around the suspected dates, etc.) despite the fact that he was, well, an idiot was surreal to me.

    I ran into Peter Jackson at EB. He was buying some xbox games.

    I'm totally serious. This Peter Jackson:

    Jesse "the Body" Ventura visited our radio station while he was campaigning for Minnesota Governor. After the on-air interview, he joined me in a very small side studio to record station IDs. This was 10 years ago, but I still remember the feeling of intimidation from his bulk, proximity and star power.

    Anyone else ever go through their day as usual, only to suddenly at some point find themselves bewildered by the very idea of self-awareness? That's a pretty surreal experience.

    He was the football coach at my high school. I forgot about that.

    I also knew his son. At one point I considered us friends, for about 10 minutes. I got tired of his slicked back hair, suit coats with the sleeves pushed up, and how he talked about how awesome he was non-stop.

    Apparently he was or is Sean Penn's whipping boy now.

    was on Messenger with an old girl-friend (she lives in Australia now) and well, my mind wandered to less than noble thoughts. Okay, i was kinda wishing i could hook up with her again (hey, she's no Playmate, but she is still damn cute) and when i turned from my computer to see what was on tv, Cartoon Network was running an episode of Assy McGee.
    a dancing ass with a gun holstered to the hip....
    that shook me from my fantasizing so much i felt guilty and logged off.

    that kind of night.

    Somewhat surreal story - Skippy from "Family Ties" once grabbed my pack of smokes, shoved one up each of his nostrils, and put them randomly back in the pack and gave them back.

    Skippy is an ASSHOLE.

    I guess the most surreal moment was smoking them later (I was too cheap to throw them away) and wondering if the one I had currently lit was once up Skippy's nose, and wondering what Mallory would think.

    I did learn an important lesson - never sit up front in the comedy club.

    Talked to Stan Lee, Stan Winston, and a model that was waiting for Gene Simmons to show up at San Diego, that was pretty surreal
