Once in 1999 a good friend of mine and I went to a Beck show in Kansas city, Missouri. Great show. We hung at the she afterwards in the parking lot and then decided to go get some food. We went to Denny's and who was sitting there in a booth by himself but Beck gosh-darned Hanssen himself! So we asked if we could sit with him for a few, and he was cool enough to let us. We chatted for about 15 min and he left. Really nice guy.
Oh and also I once played drums in a band that opened for the band Veruca Salt..nice folks also.

I swear, I have more bad ones than good. Here goes...
My step father is related to John Wilkes Boothe, the man who shot Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States of America. Also involving my step-dad, but not exactly a claim to anything or anyone specifically famous, my step-dad grew up most of his life with 3 siblings and their mother, and a father who they all were "told" was serving in a military branch; the navy if I remember correctly. Well, when he died, still presumably of natural causes, the government came to their house to tie up business, and some people informed my step-dad and his family that 1, his father was not serving in a direct military branch, but was actually someone they shipped around to build,fix, and operate radios and communication devices in WW2. Second of all, the government appreciated his work so much, that they knowingly and willingly sent him two separate checks, one for each family. That man was probably rolling around in his grave, thankful to be dead. They say one woman's scorn is bad.
-I have a sister who was in a serious relationship with someone now playing for The Phoenix Sun's NBA team, shortly dated Antoine Cason of The San Diego Chargers, the NFL team, and had another serious relationship with someone else who used to play for The SD Chargers, but just went to another team within the past season or two I think
-One of my exes is playing Canadian pro football first time next season
-I've had a couple pieces of writing published, nothing big or fancy
-This I refuse to drop names on, but I do have some pretty influential and some aristocratic family in Europe, even though I'm American. I've met some pretty interesting people politically tied one way or another from France, Germany, England, and Russia, to name a few, and I've sat down to dinner on more than one occasion with a folk or two who've been known to at least dabble in The Serbian Mafia
-My grandfather or greatgrandfather helped design part of the moonrover
-I am somewhat distantly related to the painter Franz Von Stuck
-I dated a guy in a later part of middle school and early years of high school for me, and we're still very good friends. His mom designed a ton of mechanical stuff for Nascar that branched out, and she had a nasty divorce with her husband, so when she died she left my now just-friend her little dynasty to spite her ex-husband. He's only got his hands on part of it until he's 18, but come next birthday for him, he'll be sitting on a multi-hundredmillion dollar affair
-My "mother" is one of those dreaded TSA people in the airport (keep your pants on, folks ), so she's had tons of celebs come through. Janet Jackson, Tim McGraw, Mary J. Blige, Ladamian Tomlinson, Tony Gwynn, Gwen Stefani, the guy who plays Gibbs on NCIS, whose name for now escapes me
American with an accent, Christian with a tat, sociopath with a heart, child with no mother, Lover with no Lover, confidently doubting, amused but not laughing, woman but child, feisty yet caring, sweet when not bitter.
