...the celebrity I was most excited about seeing at the film festival! Yes, I know -- normal girls were all riled up about Brad Pitt and George Clooney. I wanted to see Jimmy Carter.
He was SO great -- so energetic and fearless and genuine. I'm still all giddy and I didn't even get to meet him or anything -- just sat six rows away from him. He's the first president I can remember from my childhood, and the first one I've seen in person. I admit it -- I got a little teary. I'm a big dork... a big, liberal, patriotic dork.
Oh, and that blurry (er, blurrier) guy lurking in the background directed one of my favorite movies ever and I was so excited about Jimmy Carter that I barely paid any attention to him.
