At the neighborhood car wash

Living in LA, you never know what you’ll see. Specifically, you never know what weird celebrity moment you might have on any given day. At my local car wash in DC, the most interesting thing you’d see was the occasional black Lincoln towncar used to ferry some congressman around. Here, a trip to the car wash means, if not hobnobbing with celebrities’ assistants, then at least seeing their (sometimes ancient) Hollywood photographs lining the walls.

A few of the denizens of the car wash I go to:








I don’t think I’ve met this “Sunny” person they all inscribe the photos to, but s/he does run a nice car wash.

    AE saw Harry Reid at the Whole Foods last week. That’s the DC equivalent.

    I saw former Laker and Tar Heel (and ex-Mr. Vanessa Williams) Rick Fox last night near Hollywood and Vine at around 10:30, just wandering around unshaven in a baggy t-shirt and shorts. He looked good, though I didn’t see his teeth.

    Rick Fox! Yer killin me! I was a block from there last night and totally missed this superstar encounter. Someone get Ruben Mancillas on the horn.

    I had a class with Rick Fox at UNC (Film Appreciation, if you must know – all the jocks took it). He was tall and handsome. That is all I remember of him. I don’t believe he ever spoke in class.

    The other class that all the athletes took, which for some reason was considered an easy pass, was Geology. AKA, “Rocks for Jocks.”

    My celebrity sightings I can think of in NYC: Kiefer Sutherland, Keanu Reeves, the mean doctor from Scrubs, Julianne Moore, tons of Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson, um….there are a few more, go go gadget brain….Rufus Wainwright a bunch, Ethan Hawke (shut up, Dave, I like him!), and maybe best of all, Fran Lebowitz. The last I spoke to, or rather nervously croaked out “I’ve always enjoyed your work” and, against type, she said in the sweetest tone you can imagine “thank you so much!”
