Shameless namedropping

Famous people I've waited on. (That I can remember anyway, there were so many when I worked in trendy Los Angeles restos.)

Meryl Streep
Michelle Pfeiffer
David Schwimmer
Goldie Hawn (several times)
Kurt Russell (several times)
Arnold Schwarzenegger (many times)*
Maria Schriver(many times)*
Richard Dreyfuss
Julia Roberts*
Joe Pantoliano
Rod Stewart (twice)
Barbara Bush
Pat Robertson*
James Caan


They're all just regular people, except for Maria, who's an unmitigated bitch, and her hubby, who is, well I don't need to tell you, just watch him being governor.

*interesting story there - one day it'll be blogged

Cool!
I can't wait to hear someday what you have to say about the ones you have marked!
Maria, being a bitch, reminds me of a story I heard once from some local DJs:
Some sound stage technicians once were setting up for a concert many years ago that included Paul and Linda McCartney. Now, most everyone likes Paul, but Linda really pissed off this one technician. He said she was really nasty. So later, as she was singing "Hey Jude" with the rest of the band, he isolated and taped her voice without anyone's knowledge as he knew she was an awful singer. He then distributed the tape to several radio stations and they played it over and over. Everyone on the air was laughing so hard they couldn't talk.
Oh, man...she was TERRIBLE!

Duuuuuude... I never recognize celebrities!!! The governator himself could approach me for a friendly handshake but I would only think "who's the beefcake" before he introduced himself.

Always interesting to meet famous peoples, even thought If I do personally I would probably not even talk with them =P

I bet some doesn't look that good in real life !

ok...can't wait for the stories you promise. working in hotels for years, as i did (and some of those in chicago), i got to meet a number of famous folks, too, giving me lots to gossip about over the years. there's nothing like an asshole celebrity, ya know?

(thanks for linking to me. i'm adding you to my links, too... gotta be on the lookout for the pat robertson story for sure!)

come on, you gotta tell them about the time she asked me for oatmeal without currants (the oatmeal was cooked with them). When I told her the whole batch was made with currants she looked me right in the eye and said, "can't you just pick them out?"
I have to admit I did consider picking them out WITH MY FINGERS but hey I was busy being nasty to some other jerks so I just said NO!
If you don't tell them some Arnie stories I will.
I'm one of the five waitresses in Venice he didn't have sex with in the 80's

Goldie was always a pleasure to serve. Charming and sweet, just like her characters. A fine woman.
