I have a habit of seeing Al Franken on my birthday. (OK, so twice isn't really a habit but you know what I mean). The first time was the day I turned 19. Some girl (I forget her name, she was Jordan's friend) wanted to go stand outside the Grammy's to gawk at celebrities. I had never seen a celebrity before so I tagged along. Sure enough, along with several musical and non-musical famous people, I waved to Al Franken and he waved back.
A few years later, I was going to DC on the Delta Shuttle for work (on my birthday) and I literally ran into Al Franken on my way into the terminal.
So why am I telling you this? Other than for you to feel pity for me because I'm doing things like standing outside the Grammy's and going on business trips on my birthday rather than celebrating with loved ones? Because I saw Al Franken today! I was riding my bike to work (I do that now, by the way) and we crossed paths. We crossed paths because he was riding the WRONG way on the 72nd street thru-way (which usually pisses me off) and I said "Hey - Al Franken" when he passed. I know, it's not a particularly coherent thing to say, but what do you want from me? I was out of breath from all the bike riding.
