Some people just have dream jobs. I'm thinking here of people like Brannon Braga, Bill Gates, and... Jeff 'Koganuts' Koga, good friend and regular TrekToday contributor. Jeff happens to work for Radio Free Virgin, whose Los Angeles offices are located just two floors above the Screen Actors Guild. So this evening as I came online there was an ICQ message flashing from Jeff, telling me that on the way out from work yesterday, he actually ran into, of all people, Garrett Wang! As Jeff also maintains the unofficial fan site GarrettWang.com and has spoken with him a few times, Wang even recognised him, before asking him the way to the elevator. In addition, a colleague of his has already run into Armin Shimerman twice. How much more lucky can you get? By comparison, the only celebrity I've actually been near to is one of the ministers in our government, and that only because he lives on the other side of the street - but sometimes catching a glimpse of a minister is certainly a far cry from sharing the elevators each day with Hollywood's major stars. Yet another item on the list of reasons why I really should be moving to the US.
