So...as I usually do on Tuesdays, I went to class from 11 - 12:30, then I went to Santa Monica beach to swing on the traveling rings, and lo and behold, Rene Russo and family walked by and plopped down some towels, chairs, and other picnic equipment. Her daughter swung on the rings a few times, and so she gave it a shot, too. Looked like she had gone a few times before, but then she came up and asked me how I do it because she'd seen me on the rings when they were putting their stuff down. Well...yeah. When I finally left, I began wondering why I didn't get all giddy about seeing a celebrity at the beach. Provided, I am by no means a huge Rene Russo fan, but it was still really interesting to see her there and to talk to her like anyone else I'd meet at the rings. Then again, maybe it's also because I'm not intimidated by her like I am of all those bass players out there like Vic & Stanley Clarke. Ok, so I don't really know where I'm going with this, but I just thought I'd share my story of the day with you all.
