Stand By Me was one of my favorite movies growing up. I think the first time I saw the movie was when I was ten, so that was about 1990, but my brother, sister, and both parents also liked the movie. It's one of the only movies that my entire family used to agree on. I'm glad that you got the chance to re-connect with Rob, Corey, and Jerry. I always hear of Rob's successes, the ups and downs of Corey's life, and of the range of roles you and Jerry both do. I'm glad we got a little insight to the four of you meeting up again as a group. Someone already posted about being the female version of Gordie but I have to agree. Sometimes growing up I felt the same as Gordie did and I would sometimes write on my own and even tell stories with my friends. I suppose that helped me connect to the movie so much. That, and the wonderful actors in it. Thank you for sharing this and I hope you know that even though you're out there creating and pretending to be a fictional person, it still does effect us. We appreciate it, and we appreciate you. Thank you so much.

I really don't understand why people seem to lose it when a celebrity walks past them. They're people too. I've met a couple and there is a moment of excitement but I think that's because it's out of the ordinary. It's new and it's almost like you feel special because for that brief moment you live vicariously through them. But it's just a brief moment and nothing to lose your marbles over. A few years ago, my dad's work got them tickets to schmooze clients to this elite golf course that celebrities go to. My dad was golfing next to Kevin Sorbo and just chit chatted with him, halfway through the day he asked if it would be okay to get a signed picture for my mom who was a fan. My dad said KS was very nice about it and even joked around with my dad and the client. That in my opinion, is how people should act. Don't act crazy and you'll have a good time and probably get that autograph anyways. A friend of mine was in New York (about 10 yrs ago now) and saw Claire Danes hanging out with a friend. She said she was going to go across the street and ask if she can take her picture but stopped when she saw a mob of girls start to chase CD down the street. Not only would it have made her scared but it ruins the day she had with her friend. It's insane. Anyways, when I see a celebrity I just think of this and I think how much it would ruin someone's day if you treated them this way. I'm glad those people the other day didn't hurt you and hopefully you won't have to deal with idiots like that too often. You handled it with class. I know if it were me, as I have no patience, I'd start shoving them out of my way and swearing at them left and right. Not the best thing to do but it'd get the point across.
