Thought it'd be time to share this story with you guys...this happened a couple of years ago.

I'm a huge Beatles fan, and my father works at the Airport Hilton in Wichita, KS. He knows who Paul McCartney is and everything. One day after getting off work, he noticed that there were a constant stream of people coming in and out of the bar there, so he went in to see what the fuss was about.

Sure as I'm posting here, Paul McCartney was sitting at the bar, having a drink (apparently his plane had made an unscheduled stop for some minor maintenence?).

Anyways, he noticed that Paul had politely declined picture requests and autographs. He just wanted to have a drink in peace.

So he goes up to the bar, and immediately says, "I don't want to ask for an autograph or a picture, but I'd just like to shake your hand."

So my dad tells me that Paul stuck out his hand and they shook, and then he said, "Why don't you sit down, have a drink with me."

And then for the next 10 minutes they chatted briefly, about things like family and such, and because my dad was respectful, I ended up with a VERY nice gift from him, a Paul McCartney autographed bar napkin.

Sidestory? Yes, but it just goes to show, if you have manners, you often come away with an even better story than just simply being rude in attempting to meet a celebrity

LOL, how did I know that that would happen?

I don't keep it at my apartment, I don't live in the "best neighborhood" here in Wichita, so I've left it at my parents' house, in the care of my mom, who grew up in Beatlemania and is also a huge Paul McCartney fan.

So, if we go by the aforementioned "Pics or it didn't happen" doctrine, then I guess it "didn't happen". Because I'm not flying to my parents' house to take a picture, and I can just hear my mother now trying to take a picture

This would be her when it comes to any type of technology.

Yes, actually. Maybe it's because I've lived around smokers all my life but it's just something that I can see no good reason for doing. It costs an obscene amount of money, tastes, looks and smells disgusting and does serious damage to you. Why would you do something like that on purpose? And even though it's addictive, why would you not do everything you could to stop it?

I have seen people quit though, and my advice is to do something else to take your mind off it. And save up the money you would normally spend on it so you can get tangible evidence of the difference it's making.

Maybe... but she looks good in everything. Only, reason I'll watch Avengers again. To me she is perfection.

What's worse, obsession with male hockey player (ie Jeff Petry) or obsession with female singer (ie Carly Rae Jepsen)?
