I forgot to mention one thing that happened this last weekend at the bull riding event.

There was quite a stir, while we were waiting for it to start. Folks around us got very excited, and started pointing at a small group on the floor of the venue.

Turns out that Tom Cruise attended. He and his entourage were greeted near us, and then taken to the pens, where he was only a few feet away from the cowboys as they prepared for their rides, tying themselves onto the bulls. We saw him in the distance several times during the event.

What does it say when that particular item of the day, I completely forgot for three or four days?

I think it says that you don't buy into the "culture of celebrity" that has developed in the U.S.

I think that you're right.

OTOH, I did grow up from age 10 - 21 in SoCal, and it wasn't all that unusual to see celebrities in normal activities, like grocery shopping. So I might just be blase.

They're just people. I find it ridiculous that others get so worked up over celebrities.... at least a few people are able to keep their heads. ::tips hat to you::

It says he is just another person, like us. I am personally the same way. I don't know him; he isn't a good friend or family, so why would I get excited or worked up about seeing him?

True, though it might also be that he's scouting, or researching for an upcoming movie set in the bull riding field. If Stallone and Co. can all get together to make a big adventure film, then Cruise ought to be able to play an active cowboy...

It says you have healthy priorities.

Now, if you'd seen Larry Mahan or Ty Murray and forgot to mention it, that might have been a bad sign.

If he'd won All-Around Cowboy four or five times, then yes.

It doesn't strike me that he has the build for it.

In some ways, I suppose.
