Interesting People I've Met
Last night I was going through some old photos and came across some really interesting ones. I figured why not write a quick post about them since they are really cool in my opinion and are of opportunities that I am very grateful that I got. It is definitely true that you meet some cool and interesting people throughout your life and especially in Las Vegas. So I think maybe I'll start with the oldest photos first.
At this time we were still living back home in CA and my mom & step-dad were working at what used to be called Wild Bills. They had just gotten home from work and came in and woke me up telling me that I had to come out to the living room. I was 10 or 11 at this time so I was a bit freaked out but once I walked out into our living room and saw Ed Alonzo (yes the guy that played Max on "Saved by the Bell") I totally freaked out. But in a good way. My parents were working with him in the show as he had signed on to be one of the acts in the dinner theater show. We even got to babysit one of his pets. The kids at school didn't believe me until I went to school with this photo. Definitely a highlight in my childhood years.
Ever see that show long ago called "Roswell"?
When it came out I was in high school and was absolutely obsessed with it. Well when I was 16 I got the major opportunity to meet a few of the actors from the show. And the long wait in line was totally worth it. Alyssa Milano was also there but I cannot seem to find my picture of here. We all thought she was a little kid because we could only make out a tiny head with flowers in her hair, bobbing up & down above the clothing racks as she walked to the tables.
It's amazing to think that I actually got to meet a woman that has done some amazing things (some of which are sitting in my dvd case) and who has grown so much from the actress that she was on Roswell. Even though the other actors have gone on to other things I think she is the one who has come the farthest.
Back in 2006 I worked for a company at the Rio Hotel & Casino where I worked alongside of these gentleman. Definitely made the work hours happier ones :)
The guy on the right in both picture (Mike) would always through the Mardi Gras beads at me as I walked away from him.
I blurred out my friends face just in case she doesn't want her face to be seen.
The guy standing behind me would be Brandon and I had the privilege of becoming friends with him outside of work.
This one might seem possibly seem odd to you but I absolutely love air shows and more importantly the air crafts. I have the utmost respect for those that are in any service and do the things that they do for our country. But I do have to say that I am sometimes jealous that they get to fly these beautiful things. Kinda odd as I am scared of flying.
Life should be amazing and full of interesting people & stories. It'll be nice to look back when I am old & gray and look at the pictures of the fun times that I had when I was young. To have stories to tell my son when he is older and to tell my one day grandchildren. I am always thankful for the opportunities that I get in life.
Have you ever met anyone that you found interesting?
