    cool story from 1985

    When I was about 10, my parents took us to Disneyland. While we were eating, my parents pointed out a guy and told me to go ask for his autograph.
    Being 10, I had no idea who it was, but I was fearless…I went over and asked for him autograph regardless.
    He turned me down, saying that if he signed for me, he'd have to sign for everybody. He also told me he was trying to enjoy his daughter's birthday party.
    I asked my parents the other day (I'm almost 33 years old) who the actor was. They informed me it was Jon Voigt.
    That means I was standing right in the middle of Angelina Jolie's birthday party and didn't even notice it.

    A brush with greatness...kinda!! Cool, though--if you ever see John in person again, tell him he's sure got a pretty mouth--he loves that!!

    Great Story!

    We caught him at the Pirates II red carpet - he was very nice and even took a few minutes to talk to my son. A.J. recognized him from National Treasure.




    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Wow, that is quite a story. She was born June 4, 1975, so it must have been on or around June 4, 1985. That was just before Adventure Thru Inner Space closed, almost exactly 3 months prior (September 2). I hope you rode it that trip!

    Greatness?? That's up for debate... BUT LETS DON'T.

    Who's the great one? Angelina or Jon? I think it's a neat story!!

    Cool story, Gaston. Too bad about you and Angelina though.

    Off topic - I don't know how many MCers here remember, but we had a thread started by Hakuna Makarla where we had a plush-toy chicken named "Mac" travelling the country, sent from one member to another - and Karla got a pic with Jon holding Mac ... I think somewhere in Montana, where she lives. Anyway, he became kind of a running MiceChat gag for a time.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
