What's up with this seeing a celebrity thing?

Sort of a cool celeb sighting, Tuesday night, folks. Al Franken swung by Brother Jimmy's on the west side to pick up some take-out, as I was guzzling Jack & Diet Coke's there.

He is really quite tiny, by the way.

Sadly, few there really recognized him. And, unlike some shameless people I know (cough), I am embarassed to approach celebrities in public, so, I didn't even say: nice job with the books, or Air America.

So sad, yet so not awkward. Meanwhile, I have friends, well one friend in particular, who go nuts in the presence of celebrities. I was with her one night and she literally froze in her tracks when she thought she saw a guy who maybe played Samantha Jones' boyfriend in "Sex and the City."

And, needless to say, it wasn't even him, but boy, was that a deer caught in the headlight moment. She literally froze. I never saw anything like it. Fascinating.

Come on, don't celebrities like being asked for their autographs or for pictures? Why else would they be in a position where they go to a restaurant to get take out like that?
