I'm in a Jack Johnson State of Mind.

If you've seen this photo once, you've seen it a thousand times.

But you haven't seen this photo:

I found it yesterday while looking for pics of my New Zealand sea shells. It's my lucky duck daughter standing with Jack Johnson when he came to teach her third grade class how to reduce, reuse and recycle.

She has a talent for running into famous people.

She once got in an elevator in San Antonio with Kobe Bryant.

And Pau Gasol.

It was just the three of them, (but she didn't have a freakin' pen). 

BTW, I blame that encounter with Pau for her flamingo-esque basketball shot.

On another occasion she hopped in a jacuzzi with Sugar Ray.

He told her he liked her freckles. She told him she liked his tattoos. The rest is history.

And then there's Jack . . .

Dontcha think there's something irresistible about a man who knows Curious George personally?

And who got to sing with the Black Eyed Peas?


I myself go a little paparazzi whenever he's around--took 89 photos of him on the day he showed my daughter that you can recycle and be sexy at the same time.

Are you ready for the exclusive, never-before-seen photographic evidence? K then, turn up your volume, cuz this is a package post.

(And if anyone asks, you saw it here first!)

Miss you, Jack Johnson!

I really came to look at your aloha tree again! First off i love the fact that you did that! We've been having thoughts of heading back to utah lately and it really made me think about what i would take back with me and what i would miss the most, so i can make the most out of these last 5 months!

I was at school the other night planning and putting lessons together when the soccer team was playing and as i walked out passed the field, i looked for jack for you to give him a hug! Really! at first i wasnt sure if id really have the guts to do it but i looked and didnt see him!

but I tutor a girl on the soccer team (she said she knows T) and asked her if she see him to give him a big hug and tell him its from T's mom!! she said she would!

btw... did T really jump in an elevator with kobe? thats awesome!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Iwa, YAY! That makes my day to think that someone is going to give JJ a hug from me. Tell her to tell him that I recycle too! ;)

Yes, she really did jump in an elevator with Kobe. She and Al were staying at the same hotel with the Lakers in San Antonio a few years ago. Zach was sooooooo mad because he was supposed to go on that trip but he wanted to stay for 6th grade graduation.

Yes, bring everything special and meaningful, even your bathroom rugs become chicken soup for the soul. And yes, make the most of every minute. Live like Kris Allen--like you're dying. But you'll LUB Utah. It's da bomb.

I'm at work, and for some reason on this computer, only 2 of those pics showed up. But um, I like what I'm seeing so far! haha JJ's little baby is giving you the stink eye! I can't wait til I go home so I check out the rest of whatcha got!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Well at least JJ isn't giving me the stink eye! ;)

I was on a shuttle bus to the Portland OR airport with Joe Namath in 1985.

The first lier dosen't have a chance. Hee Hee

Sandi said...

I saw Kristy McNichol on the beach at Waikiki. And Tom Selleck. THats it. I'm done. haha. CUTE PICS!!! JJ is just really easy on the eyes as well as the ears isn't he? T is LUCKY(and pretty darn cute herself!)

The Garden of Egan said...

He looks like he SO belongs in Hawaii!
It's really cool for me to post a comment on someone that is so famous that she paparazzis famous people. I feel connected.

Your freckled daughter is dang darling!

I gave Alice Cooper directions to Bill's Lake in AZ and I looked into Mark Eaton's belly button at Festival of Trees in Dec. At least I think I made it to his belly button. PS....I'm sorry about your tree falling over twice. Dang that universe for not having a qwerty keyboard!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

So super duper dang cute huh? He's kinda got a hunchback going on yet he still comes across as sexy... wish my hunch back came across that way...


still... love your photographic evidence...wouldn't have believed you otherwise.

Sandi said...

He has perfect teeth. And a crooked smile. And he recycles. And he sings. And he knows curious george. And he sings. *sigh*

I'm still mad that JJ came to BYU a few months back and I didn't know until it was over. Remember Lani posted a bunch of stuff on facebook about it.

We just finished Tom's bday party. He's 5 now and it was so fun having 10 little boys over and trying to keep them from fighting. Every activity we did ended up in a fight. So we just moved on to the next activity.

Now Rach is having her party. They are making homemade pizza.

Oh, we didn't get the Pakalani's house, but we are working on another one now.

You know he looks kinda sketchy in that first pic. You sure that's Jack? ;)

Why didn't I know you would still be on the Jack Johnson thing, even after having moved to Utard??? :D :D :D Well I would never give him up either :)
