One thing that I've always wanted to do sometime was meet a celebrity whether they are actors/actresses, athletes, musicians, artists, etc. I got meet Peter Mayhew and Yvonne Craig at a Trek Expo about 12 years ago. Pretty experience. I've met Nascar driver Tony Stewart several times at the Chili Bowl in Tulsa, Ok. Heck, I even got to meet one of the Miss Sprint Cup girls last year when my dad and I went to a Nascar race in Texas.
There is always someone or even somewhere we would all like to go to someday. We like to call it our "Bucket Lists". Things we want to do before our time is up here in this life. Things we want to experience with family or just another someone else.
There will always be someone we would like to meet because we admire something they do, have done, or just totally good looking!!
Myself? I'm pretty happy getting to chat with several artists and other DA members here. I've kinda developed a friendship with a few as stated in my last journal
and have now been getting along with another one from Germany :
(gotta love that hair color). They are really awesome people and we all share a passion for gorgeous art and other interests in life.
Whether a member is in the same state as me or across the globe, I think it's pretty cool that we don't need certain social medias to say hello and share with each other what's going on with each other. Sometimes it's nice to not just do "shop talk".
There are a few people I would really be excited to meet. Some of them you may know already. Of course, there is, in my opinion, the father of Marvel
! He created so many of our favorite Marvel characters including my all-time favorite
. If I could meet him, I would ask for his autograph on my Savage She-Hulk #1 which is one of the last characters he created with John Busciema.
There is also Kate Beckinsale, Gina Carano, Ronda Rousey, Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman herself), Lucy Lawless aka
, Jaime Alexander aka Lady Sif, Danica Patrick, Chris Evans, Sylvester Stallone, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson,
of Evanscence, Lzzy Hale of Halestorm,
of Within Temptation, Manda from Nemesea, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, and several others I can't think right at the moment.
Several of them I would love to meet to just get their autograph on a poster I have theirs, music CD, or something I have that represents something they have done or achieved.
Kate, Gina, and Lucy would be my top three because they are three of the most beautiful women I have ever seen
Kate has done some really awesome movies including Underworld, Van Helsing, Whiteout, and Total Recall. Gina is an accomplished MMA fighter/actress. She was a pioneer for women to join the Ultimate fighting sport and is looked up to by even current women's champ, Ronda Rousey.
Gina's done about 3 movies that I can recall, Haywire, Fast & Furious 6, & In The Blood. She is just flat out gorgeous and, in my opinion make a great Wonder Woman
And could ever forget the Warrior Princess herself, Lucy. It's been my favorite all time TV show!! (I never really got to see the Wonder Woman TV series much and that's why I have it on DVD).
I have all six season on DVD, have several items of memoralbilia like a cheap replica sword of hers, several poster, a couple of standups, comic books, and all sorts of collectibles. Actually, since my son move out I am slowly making it my "Xena room" with some of the stuff I have.
There is not really many places I would wanna go to except maybe Soldier Field in Chicago, maybe New Zealand and Germany ( my last name is German. Check out any family ancestors, maybe).
I will at least get to go to my first Wizard World Comic Con in November in Tulsa, OK and meet several artists including Greg Horn( I have tons of his comic he did the covers for and posters on my walls). Might even get to meet Lady Quantum herself,
What is your desire? Where would you like to go? Who do you wanna meet someday? What would you like to accomplish if and when you get the opportunity?
Make your wishes known if you want to. Who knows? It could happen for you someday
