Indulge me in some 10th grade fan geekery, won't you?

When I was in 10th grade, I wrote to all the cast members of my favorite show...Saturday Night Live.  Just for fun, I thought I'd share the respondes I received.

Ellen Cleghorne.  She spelled my name right.  Many people who know me can't do that.  :)

Cheri Oteri (doesn't she have, like, the coolest name?)

Okay, remember when I said I sent these out in 10th grade?  These showed up when I was in college.  No kidding.  But, Tim Meadows sent two photos. 

David Koechner.  Any fans of The Office recognize him as Todd Packer?  :)

I was very excited to recieve Chris Farley's autograph.  Now it just makes me a bit sad. 

You would think being one of the more well-known autographs I have, Chris Farley's would be my favorite, right?  Actually, no.  Kevin Nealon's autograph takes that spot.  Because (1) he was the first one to respond and (2) he wrote a letter, too. 

So, did anyone else do this sort of thing when they were younger?

So cool!!! Love those pics and autographs (don't know them, but it's cool anyway)!!
Hehe I once wrote a letter to a famous Dutch soccerplayer, but never got something back! My brother was making fun of me, like he was waiting for a geek like me with big ears, braces and skinny legs, hahahaha (he is so funny)!!!

Wow, that is cool that you got all their autographs...and how nice was it of Kevin Neelen to send a letter!! Oh, it is sad about Chris Farley..I always loved him. I don't think I ever sent letters to anyone, but I did plenty of geeky stuff!! Love, Jess

Oh how funny! My Hubby is a major Chris Farley fan...sad. I never did anything like this in high school but when my Mom had breast cancer 8 or 9 years ago, my Sister and I called the Today show to get a head shot of Matt Lauer for her to lift her spirits. Katie and Al sent along headshots too and now we tease my Mom because she has them hanging on the family portrait wall. LOL!
Hope you are having a good week!

Ok, so first of all, why in the heckfire has your blog not been in my blog reader???? Well, I just fixed that problem.

And second of all, these autographs are sincerely the coolest things ever!!! I did have a Hello Kitty autograph book and do have some semi-famous signatures (wish I knew where that darn thing was!)

Happy Easter!!!!
