Celebrity sightings

So I live in Los Angeles, home of the celebrity sighting. I have seen TWO celebrities in the 14 months I've lived here, and both were gay musical theater writers. Neither one of them lives in LA. I clearly have not mastered the celebrity sighting techniques required for citizenship here.

For those who are curious, I have met Richard Thomas, best known as the composer of Jerry Springer: The Opera and John Cameron Mitchell, best known as the writer and star of Hedwig and the Angry Inch (less known as Dickon in The Secret Garden musical). Richard donated $173 to Equality For All and John hung out at my apartment with me and my ex-roommate.

So I may not have the quantity, but I've got the quality.

Oh, also I know a writer for Family Guy, but he's not famous.

ZOMG JOHN CAMERON MITCHELL! I actually knew him as Dickon before I ever saw Hedwig. He is the awesome. I am super jealous.
