Last night somebody approached me and asked if I was Amanda Mattos -- they recognized me from DCist. I wonder if somebody out there today is writing a blog post about their run in with local (lmnop list) celebrity, Amanda Mattos. 100% chance the answer to that is no, but I think I can officially start to complain about the paparazzi.Posted by: Amanda on June 15, 2006 10:05 AM

TWO, people recognized me
That's not even counting the (nameless) people who recognized you but, struck mute by your fame, did not introduce themselves.
Ahem.Posted by: Matt F on June 15, 2006 11:19 AM
I had my first Andy Stern sighting earlier in the day too, I should point out. Which is probably only exciting to me and other ED folks. Still, adds to the famous-for-DC jam-packedness of the day.
Come to think of it, I think a Senator dropped by our meeting yesterday morning, but only long enough to drop Ted Turner and Hillary Clintons' names. I didn't get a good look at him or hear the introduction, so I'm not sure which one it was...Posted by: tom on June 15, 2006 02:29 PM
Wirth! Google says it was Senator Wirth. Sounds plausible.Posted by: tom on June 15, 2006 02:30 PM
