FAMOUS PEOPLE - When I worked at the ice cream place in the Village, I met and served Rick Moranis (the geeky actor guy) while they were filming the movie Little Giants. I also served Lou Ferrigno from the Incredible Hulk and King of Queens (he used to live in AG, but I don't think he does anymore).
I also met John Hart who was one of the Lone Rangers back in the day (I say "one of" because I think there were several guys who played that role - his was back in the 50's)- he was a friend of my grandpa's.

BONES - I've broken both ankles, both wrists, and 4 fingers - WOOOO! I'm thinking I should bump up my calcium intake eh?

AMBULANCE - not as exciting as you might think...but when I was in elementary school we had one of those firemen/policemen/emt days and I was the kid who got to be the "example of what would happen" and I had to pretend something was wrong with me and I got strapped into a gurney and taken into the ambulance. Wheeeee. Never been in one for an actual emergency purpose, thank GOD.

holy crap, 8 broken bones!!!!!! That must be a family record. Good think I never met Rick Moranis, I just had to google the guy, I had no idea who that was :)
