An Encounter with Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves and G!

July 29, 2010 was a crazy day.  As the day began, I was already planning on seeing 3 bands. I was notified in the morning that a contest I’d entered won me free tickets to another band, of course – at the same time as my previous plans and on opposite sides of town.  Being the lover of music that I am, I decided to go to see all of these bands (and I made it to all events – because I am that badass!  Just look at any of these 1200+ posts in the archives of this site if you don’t believe me).

As I was on my way to the first event of the night, my horrible sense of direction finally paid off.  I walked in the complete opposite direction of where I needed to go and then suddenly I saw The One. Neo.  Keanu Reeves!  The man who has starred in one of my favorite movies of all time, The Matrix, was just standing by himself having a smoke.  Whoa!  He was extremely nice he even thanked me for asking for a photo!  Thanks so much Mr. Reeves.  When I was standing an inch from him, it completely slipped my mind to tell him that The Matrix trilogy rules so much that I’ve never thought the same way about reality since.

Is this post just a dream?

    He looks better than I expected, though he has lost his “Bill & Ted-era” uber hotness.

    He hasn’t really lost it, he just decided to hide it under an ugly beard.
