    I served breakfast to Jake the Snake and some midget wrestlers when I was a waitress. Jake was so mean I cried. (I was a young sheltered little dubbie.) He was pissed because he was too big for the chairs and the midgets were mad because they were too small for the chairs. (Goldilocks should fit into that story somewhere.) Jake got madder when it took 15 minutes to boil the dozen eggs he ordered. He took it out on me by loudly berating me and yelling.

    On a flight from Memphis to La Guardia, I got bumped into first class through pure luck, and my life was a Seinfeld episode for at least 3 hours! No prewarmed towels, but it definitely WAS a much better experience that flying coach!

    I sat next Drea de Matteo from "The Sopranos" and "Joey". I did my best to play it cool, didn't bug her while she was working over her script. We actually chatted up for a bit while waiting to taxi in.

    And, then, afterwards, we met for drinks at Tavern on the Green, and then, back at my suite, we...oh, wait, that last part didn't happen.

    But it was pretty cool sitting next to one of the Sopranos, even if they did kill her off a year later on the series....
