Mine sucks.

I think it was David Lange.

He was pretty cool though.

I did have a night on the booze with Jeremy Coney once.

He was also very cool.

I have a couple:

Michael Campbell at a Wellington bar (I bought him a beer)

Lana Coc-Kroft in an elevator, James Cook hotel, Wellington

Winston Peters, on an Air NZ flight en route to AKL

Ian Kilminster a.k.a ‘Lemmy’ from Motorhead, Santa Monica

James Gandolfini a.k.a ‘Tony Soprano’, from The Sopranos, on location in NJ

By far the nicest person would be Lemmy.

Adam Lambert (shouldve been Am. Idol) at a cafe in Ponsonby. Didnt really talk just took a photo wit him.

Ben Atiga in town at club Duo. The dudes a douche bag.

Curtis Haiu (Blues) in town, mate of a mate, hes a stingy guy.

Mike Kings son?? Forgot his name, the rapper?? Yeah meet him in town, mates mate, that guy is weird. Hes definately not all there.

Parris Goebal (request dance crew) i tried chatting her up at this function just recently lol shes real nice but defineatly gay

Stacey Jones, meet him at some bar in Pt. Chev. He was ridiculously drunk and not as nice as i thought he would be; bit of an egg tbh.

S.B.W. Meet him at my cousins wedding, there best boys from MAGs, cool dude.

Jonah Lomu, shook his hand after a game.

And ive had Kalifa Fai Fai Loa (NRL) at my house a few times for drinkups. Hes an old league mate from Marist and the cockiest guy ive ever known personally.

Rose Matafaio (host of U live) best mates with my ex kiege. Shes like a clone of my ex, there practicly got the same personality. Funny and lost.

And the coolest dude ive ever met and know personally is Willie (Spacifix) i know him from church and ive had Tonga (six 60) at my house too both guys are just humble.

Very weird when i met her. I was 9 at the time and she was covered in hikis and said stuff that didnt make sense

Moana from Moana and the moa hunters
She was ok, she signed my certificate in her prime time

Te awanui Reeder- from nesian mystic
Typical shy guy has really really good skin and looks young for his age- he mistook me for someone he was meant to meet up with, cheeky and happy

The crippled maori dude of shortland street also on the lift plus ad
He was at AUT at the time good humble chap no "i was on the TV" perceived persona

Leanne Malcom
The old tv2 host chick with the braids- likes to laugh alot and quite chummy and condescending...
Bodie off oz big brother (dont think they count)
arrogant d'wad i was working at a bar he thought every woman wanted him type ego

Err scotts actress fiance off shortland street
met her at the atrium quite closed off, shy

shavaughn Ruakere
at the time was really really skinny, just got back from japan i think, really good looking woman, didnt really get around to what sort of vibe she had

the chick who was sonny off shortland street (on the cracker ad)
she was also very thin too, very assertive, confident and had an attractive personality- she has a firey personality from what i gathered

Tairiana Turia
very aunty like

Howie Morrison (Hunting Aotearoa)
funny guy and easygoing met him at ohinemutu marae when they were shooting the papa ruru show in there

Cliff Curtis
saw him on the way into town in rotorua a while back- quite a mellow guy i gathered

The "big" chick off "go girls"
kind of self centered

Nigle Dixon (some american football player from new zealand at the time)
we just shook his hand as a kid, not too sure how big he is over in USA at the time

stacy daniels
very very short we lived in her neck of the woods kind of quiet and shy

The maraerobics crew
awesome- them and tahuna minhinnick

Paul Henry
"OMG you the guy off the breakfast show" he was outside dining on nuffield st wagamama? he is actually a great guy he had a good vibe and he is cheeky in a clever way despite what you saw on TV

That choo choo train looking man from the 7pm show on one
was dressed very rugged on queen st- just said hi

Frankie Stevens
intimidating man with his big bear voice raaawr! he tries his best to tone himself down

Willie Jackson - Caught him stealing my neighbours shoes, he ran away, dropping the shoes and leaving fingerprints, arrested later that day.

Hone Harawira - Digging for kai in the local park naked, arrested and charges were dropped due to having 1/4 Maori blood and at the time the prison's were already full with his cuzzies.

Pita Sharples - Saw him having sex with a goat in Napier, he smiled and said "I love whitiesssssss". The goat was half cast, brown and white.

Tariana Turia - She took off her clothes in front of myself and a few mates when we were 12-13.. I woke up in hospital, apparently I suffered a minor stroke.

She is weird, her daughter (or son, I can't remember) went to my daughter's ballet class in Pt Chev. She was really quiet, hide behind everyone else type but got on well with my partner. Twice our age though...

Jason Gunn - We used to throw rocks at his house when we were kids. He was an angry little man, made the trip to his house to throw rocks or those white fruit off trees(we called monkey apples) all the more fun. He would yell and swear at us, made watching What Now even funnier.
