    So, they're shooting this movie at the country club about a mile from where the UPS Store I work at is. It's a big deal for a podunk town like Aiken. Anyway, today, Faizon Love, best known as Big Worm in the movie Friday, came into the store to buy some boxes. Not really that big of a deal, but he's the only "famous" person I've talked to and dealt with in person, so it was sort of neat.

    Of course, all the teenagers in town who are too young to remember Friday are going crazy because Andy Milonakis is around town, too. Apparently, Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince and the principal from Ferris Bueller are in it as well, though nobody's seen them around town.

    I have seen pics of "Uncle Phil" recently and he has lost a lot of weight and he's more grey now, so it might be hard to recognize him. The principal from Ferris Bueller has also lost some weight and he is also very grey now, so if you saw him, he doesn't look like he used to.

    I could give two shits about Milonakis. He annoys me beyond anything possible, worse than Moore or Coulter.

    Uncle Phil, though. Man, I'd love to meet him. I'd also like to meet Jeffrey Jones, though he is a pedophile :/

    He was a pretty cool guy, but we didn't really talk much or anything. He wasn't a jackass, he just seemed like he had better stuff to do than hang around in a hot, busy UPS Store. It's understandable.

    Today I met Jeffrey Jones. The movie's wrapping, and since we're so close, everyone's coming in here to get boxes, etc.

    He was really nice. It was very surreal, much more than Big Worm. I was a huge fan of Beetlejuice and Ferris Bueller back in the day, so seeing that face and hearing that voice as I was talking to him was just strange.

    But, at the same time, it's weird that he's also a pedophile. But, still, for me, meeting him was way, way cooler than meeting Big Worm (no offense to him, of course).

    Here's the movie they are filming.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0785077/

    My wife used to work at the cherry creek mall in Denver.
    For some reason, that place attracts some famous faces.
    While she worked there she met:

    Tyrese Gibson. I was told he's an ass

    Kevin Smith. Too bad she only knew him as Silent Bob and not Kevin Smith.
    You'd think as much as I talk about him, she'd remember that he was my
    favorite creator/director and get an autograph but NO! (She also spotted Jay,
    my true hero, at Cinnabon on a seperate occassion)

    Brittney Spears at Steak Escape.

    Brittney Murphey and a bunch people I've never heard of.
    She would come home about 3 times a month with a new story.

    Did you know he's a 30 year old man???
    He shares the same birthday as me, only he's 3 years older.
    He'll be 31 in January. It's true, google his name or look him up on IMDb
