have you ever seen a celebrity? not necessarily an A-lister, like julia roberts, but somebody that's a somebody? how would you react? what would you say?
yesterday i photographed an event for work that included laura lippman. so cool! at the end of the event, i was able to buy a copy of her newest book, the most dangerous thing, and have her autograph it. i stood in line for 30 minutes (we had a huge crowd of people show up for the program) to meet her and get her to sign my book. that's enough time to come up with something clever to say, or at least a simple question, but my mind was completely blank during the entire wait. when i finally got my turn, she said hi and asked my name. i was able to overcome my sudden bout of shyness just long enough to answer her, but after that i froze up again. it was so embarrassing! she probably thought there was something wrong with me...mentally, ya know.
oh well. what're ya gonna do?
