So, I was stopping in for an ordinary late lunch in Solana Beach at Rubio's (one of my favorite places to eat) and I ran into the famous Padre baseball relief pitcher Trevor Hoffman. Before I said hi to him I walked outside and called up one of my best friend's Jasen Carr who had taken me to a Padre game this past season and who knows everything about every sport. (He is even an expert on the WNBA! -yeah, this guy knows everything) So I asked Jasen about Trevor Hoffman and ofcourse he knew, and he told me that he was now a free agent and was deciding whether or not to come back to San Diego depending on his contract.

So now with a little extra knowledge, while we were waiting for our Rubio's food, I went and said hi to Trevor and said that I hoped that he stays in San Diego. He was really nice and said that he really appreciated what I said and that he hopes to stay in San Diego too!

It was just a cool moment. I love crossing paths with celebrities.

This year started with running into Tom from the band Blink-182. I got to talk to him for a little and give him our new cd at The Naked Cafe. He was rocking out to it as he drove away. I was stoked.

Then we ran into Britney Spears at The La Costa Resort & Spa. She was very pregnant but flashed us a nice smile as she walked by, looking kinda lost actually.

Got to listen to Trump speak, after sneaking into a conference while my brother was doing a story for KTLA. Jaime got a personal interview.

Ofcourse, my brother Jaime meets a couple celebrities a week. I even saw him interview Arnold Schwartsanegger (I don't know how to spell his name) That was hilarious.

We had dinner next to David Spade in Los Angeles while celebrating my brother's birthday by accident, and now running into Trevor Hoffman was another pleasant surprise.

Well, I don't know what it is about famous people that gets me excited- maybe it's the energy they create from living such unique lives. They really put themselves on the line. I guess that's what I like about meeting them. I know that they are the type of people who go for it.

Hope to talk to you all soon,
Thanks for checking in.
Thanks for your e-mails.
(I realize that even though it says that you can comment on these blogs- you really can't until you sign up for an account yourself and it is definitely kind of a pain to sign up so I don't expect anyone to.)
Just drop me e-mails like you've been doing all along, I love hearing from all of you!
& Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy Hannuka, Happy Holidays, Happy New Years and all of those other holidays that are in there somewhere. If we keep adding Holidays, we won't have any normal days left! (wouldn't that be awesome!)
