    When I was about 11 years old, I rode up in an elevator with Lauren Bacall!!

    Different generation...I guess!:D

    Thank you, thank you!!

    I was too embarrassed to ask the same question.:eek:

    I thought it was just because I'm old and completely out of it. But you're just a young pup...and if you don't know...I don't feel so bad!:D

    I so do admire you for that.

    :)

    Wish I had that attitude. It would save me a lot of family grief,sanity and money.

    I thought that was truth and facts :p

    Of course now I just lumped Rachel Maddow in the same group as truth and facts...

    It helps that I only have an Apple TV and no cableTV/satellite/OTA connections. All I have is cable Internet service. I loathe commercials so much so that I don't want regular TV. Netflix and iTunes provides me with all the entertainment I need.

    I grab my news from the Internet websites and such. Sports aren't a big deal to me so I can live, quite easily, with this setup.

    If I had cable news, I'd probably go mad, crazy and insane all at the same time! The only time I catch cable news is at work if I'm passing by the TV and the others have it on.

    I live in the US, and she means nothing to me!:p

    Not drinking coffee!!! :eek:

    Not drinking a good double shot of espresso!!!:eek:

    Oh, for shame. Probably drinking a double shot of the demon liquor.

    The road to perdition!

    Ah, what the hell...lift one for me!!:D

    Sorry just ran out. All that leaves is my wife's Malabu or Archers. Neither of which are my favourite tipple. Why can't you get take away alcohol delivered? I think I have got a great idea for an app!

    Geez, I was mature for my age...but eleven years old!!:eek: with Lauren Bacall??:eek:

    She was with her daughter, about 7-8 years old. Bacall was beautiful, classy,,,and I was a grubby street kid rendered speechless... and eleven years old!!:p

    I will admit that the experience added a new richness to my fantasy life.:eek:

    Freud smoked cigars, so he had to say that, otherwise the implications of the symbolism of smoking cigars would be problematic for him based on the values of the time!!

    I'm jealous :p. I only really watch the BBC/MSNBC/Anime but it still ends up taking so much time.

    I've never met anybody famous but I did play a very small part in a made for TV movie with Jennifer O'Neil called Chase. That was pretty cool.

    Brilliant thread.

    Shrink and Peace, well done, that is wonderful stuff.

    And, I must confess that I, too, had never heard of Rachel Maddox...

    Now, Lauren Bacall, that is a totally different matter; a wonderful actress, and an amazing screen presence. A nice story.

    And I love Shrink's response to the famous quote uttered by Sigmund Freud concerning cigars........
