Brad Pitt's been spotted in Calgary! And so has Angelina Jolie! Pity I live in the suburbs. Doubt my mortal self will get a glimpse of either of the gilded "pair", frequenting, as they do, the trendy spots as opposed to my local Tim Horton's. Is my life somehow less charmed as a result?

Question: are there are any famous people you'd go way out of your way just to catch a glimpse of? I will have to think if there are any for me. Certainly I don't think any Hollywood actors would make the list. Now, if they did a reconstruction of Lord of the Rings, with Aragorn and Legolas riding over the prairie plains on horseback, I might be induced to try to catch a glimpse. Doubt it, though. What is it with the fascination of the celebrity life? Who cares?

sigh.... One day Robert Plant passed through our town, when I lived in England, and went into the bookstore underneat where I worked. I missed him!!!

Johnny Depp, for obvious reasons.

John Travolta, for not so obvious reasons.

John Lennon, but I wouldn't want to really do what it might take to see HIM any time soon, so I guess he doesn't count.. lol

Robert Anton Wilson. Madonna. Sting. Oh, I have a few.
