waiting in LAX airport, and let´s be honest, LAX has become known for celebrity watching as much as the ivy, or villa, or any other los angeles hot spot. so i wasn´t at all surprised to see a random famous person as i waited in line to go through security. while patiently waiting i happen to turn around and see not zac and vanessa, not jen aniston and john mayer, not shia (!) and his doctor bag (read: man purse), but i see drum roll please... vern troyer! that´s right. my LAX celebrity sighting was none other than mini me himself - vern troyer. for pete´s sake! but i guess it perfectly capped off the weekend of randomly seeing celebrities while out and about that didn´t really excite me. (cher and that persian kid from the new 90210 rounded out the group)
i watched vern (who´s way smaller than i realized by the way) take a good five minutes to take off all his bling before going through the metal dectectors only to still be patted down on the other side after his wheelchair must´ve set off the machine. well at least it made the security line interesting...!
