I go to New York City a lot for my job. Every time I come to NYC it seems that I run into someone famous. Kind of funny for a city sooo big that this would happen, but it does. Statistically, it seems that it wouldn't though. Last time I was here (Oct) I ran into Donald Trump:

See the guy waving at me? That is actually his body guard coming to yell at me for taking his picture. But it was neat to see Donald.

This time, I am staying at the Hilton Times Square and I was heading to the lobby in the elevator. The elevator gets to the lobby and the doors open and who is staring me in the face??? .... none other than Barry Manilow. REALLY! I couldn't take a photo this time. But I am standing there and if there is anything that makes you pause getting off an elevator - it is the doors opening to Barry Manilow. My mind is going, “OK, Bill ... I know you drank some beers last night, but is this real?” I got off, Barry got on (with his groupies), I turn and watch the doors close and that is it. Strange and cool. I love NYC.

fun to read that. I lived in NYC for 8 years. I remember being at the movies (Roger Rabbit) and my friends and I were sniggering at the Madonna wannabe in line in front of us. We stopped sniggering when we realized that was Sean Penn standing with her. I guess there were lots of those encounters. When you live in NY, you have to pretend not to notice. Nobody used to look at each other on the street. It wasn't cool. Different times!

I was walking down Times Square once and I accidently hugged a women who I thought was my mom, when I looked up it was really Jennifer Love Hewitt. She thought I hugged her on purpose like a fan so she hugged me back. Ill never forget that day.
