Two weeks ago Emily Saliers of The Indigo Girls stopped by with her girlfriend. My two co-workers who were with me have no clue who she is as they are black women who definitely do not listen to folk-rock. Anyway, I wasn't going to be all ga-ga over a celebrity but she is a really gifted singer/songwriter so, after a few minutes of agonizing indecision, I tore off a piece of receipt paper and asked her if she'd consent to give me her autograph. She was really nice and we talked for a few minutes about music. VERY cool.
Last week, the main actor from "Jason's Lyric" was hanging around the mall and was spotted by my co-workers. And a month ago Magic Johnson and a whole posse of girls and bodyguards walked past our Starbucks on his way to some store. I missed all the hullabaloo as I was re-stocking cups and lids. I don't like him anyway, so no big loss there.
