Journal Entry Type #118: For Those I Would Love to Meet

With Betty White passing just prior to turning 100 in January, here is a list of 10 people I would have loved to meet in person for those still alive and those already gone. I’m sure the list will change by the end of this year. I should do a comparison in December 2022. I will also compile a list of famous people I’ve seen because why not. Okay, so it’s not so much writing but that’s what my next JET will be.

The ten people I would’ve loved to meet in person already gone are the following in no particular order.

  1. Joan of Arc
  2. Albert Einstein
  3. Kahlil Gibran
  4. Freddie Mercury
  5. Edgar Allan Poe
  6. Queen Elizabeth I
  7. Bruce Lee
  8. Emily Dickinson
  9. Alexander the Great
  10. Anaïs Nin

The ten people I would love to meet in person still alive and actually talk to are the following in no particular order.

  1. Dwayne Johnson
  2. Cate Blanchett
  3. Brian Williams
  4. Bindi Irwin
  5. Tom Hanks
  6. Tina Fey
  7. Michelle Obama
  8. Uma Thurman
  9. Conan O’Brien
  10. Liz Cheney

The people I’ve seen but never talked or said very minimal to are the following in no particular order and the musicians I saw at concerts. I keep adding onto this list because I remember them when I’m trying to sleep. I can’t believe my memory is that good and bad.

  1. Stan Lee in a parking lot (yes, I did see him in a parking lot/my roommate confirmed it was him as he was with me/Lee was about 10 feet away from me so easy to see him and no, I didn’t ask for his autograph).
