lunch with the stars

Judge JudyI’m not really interested in meeting celebrities. As a teen I didn’t have posters of Duran Duran in my locker. As an adult, I read the latest celebrity news (willingly and with morbid interest) but I don’t want to party with Britney Spears or have lunch with Keanu Reeves.

I don’t know any celebrities but I have met some well-known journalists and politicians. I’m famous in one small circle for getting quite tongue-tied talking to Bob Rae. He was pleasant and charismatic. I was a bit smitten. But I’m not trolling the internet for new Bob gossip. I do miss Frank Magazine, though! I also know someone who was nominated for an Academy Award but that’s not relevant to my post (I just wanted to mention it since I mentioned Bob.)

But there is someone I would love to have lunch with. Not because she’s a celebrity but because I think it would be a lot of fun and very interesting. In fact, I would love to be in her court room (um, studio audience) for a day of taping. She can see right through bs and she’s tough but fair. Sure I don’t always agree with her and sometimes I feel she mocks the hopelessly dumb and beautifully vapid (but so do I on occasion). I know I will probably never meet Judith Sheindlin but I can send e-cards to myself and put them on my blog much like the weird kids did with the Duran Duran posters in their lockers.


(I preferred KISS as did all the self-respecting rockers.)
