Tonight I was sitting next to Dawn from Danity Kane at the benefit

Obviously, since I am the WORST CELEBRITY SPOTTER EVER, I didn't know it was Dawn from Danity Kane of Making the Band -- a show I used to watch religiously every week. Anyway, we talked for like a minute, and I said to her, "You look so familiar, are you friends with Susan? Do you work in media?" She was lovely, but it wasn't until five minutes later that I realized who she was and by that time there was no graceful way to interject that into a conversation. Sigh.
