Jeanette called and got me. He looks like a million bucks. All in black, white makeup, lil' moustache & chin spinach. Fandango hat. Not incognito at all - in fact he looks like Boy George!!

Jeanette got a hug and an autograph. I just said "hey" and got a handshake. Seemed like a nice guy - didn't mind the hullabaloo of folks mulling about.


Most importantly - I finally met a celebrity I like, and didn't embarass myself*!! (Which is especially good, since I'd risk getting beaten like a Von Bondie!)






*see also Ellen Degeneres, Robin Williams, etc

Should have asked him how Renee was doing to really piss him off. Maybe he would've punched you.

We were gonna say "oh, it's only Jack White, not Jack Black", but then we remembered:

I'm usually not in favor of Hollywood remakes, but if they remade Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid as a musical starring Jack Black and Jack White, I would sell all of your souls to go see it.

Yesterday at the library we had a guy who was "troubled" in here. He was dressed like Michael Jackson with the sequined glove and everything. We spent a good portion of yesterday morning having MJ sightings.

So, today one of the guys who works here came by my desk and told me "Jack White is in the 200 section. I would have said hi but he's like 7 feet tall and it freaked me out."

I thought that he was screwing around. I thought that it was just some random guy that looked like Jack White. (Like yesterday's Michael Jackson.) Then, I went to go and see for myself and have a laugh.

But lo and behold there he was. I went up to him and I said "You're Jack White" and I laughed. I told him that my friend had said that Jack White was in the library and I was like, "Yeah right. Get the hell out of here!" I explained to him what had happened yesterday, and that I expected to see some guy that just looked like him instead of him.

I got to chat a bit with him and I made him laugh. I told him that it was cool that even though he's a big rock star, he was up early and not spending his morning doing blow in his hotel room. Instead, he was cracking some books and hanging out with us dorks.

I told him where everything was here in library and good luck with tonight's show. He gave me an autograph, said thanks, and was very gracious.

He's OK in my book.

I wish we had some pics - it was surreal to see the guy with an armful of books, sitting amongst the weirdos on the main floor.

I'm told I was a bit loud about it all. Could I be the first boarder to get written up at work over Scott Ziolko & Jack freakin' White??

Most importantly - I finally met a celebrity I like, and didn't embarass myself*!! (Which is especially good, since I'd risk getting beaten like a Von Bondie!)
