Your Weirdest Celebrity Sightings & Favorite College Class

Jason English

Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. Very casual. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Of all the paragraphs in all the emails I've received so far this year, this one's my favorite:

"Did I tell you that Tony Danza is our neighbor? He's filming a reality show at a local high school and moved into the apartment complex across the street. We occasionally see him at the local bowling alley and he once high-fived me while jogging along the Delaware River."

That came from occasional contributor Erica Palan, and it inspired today's first question. What's your weirdest celebrity sighting story? You can let "weird" describe the celebrity ("I played pick-up basketball with Screech & The Situation") or how you met them ("My robot dog bit Katie Couric.")

2. What was your favorite college (or high school) class? I took Campaigns & Elections in the fall of 2000. That gets my vote.

3. There's nothing unusual about throwing a Super Bowl party, or an Academy Awards party. Have you ever held or attended a big party surrounding a less blockbuster-y TV event? A NOVA special? The Big Bang Theory premier?

4. We're 36 days into 2010. So what are you saying: "Two-Thousand Ten" or "Twenty Ten"? (Or "O-Ten?")
