    I don't know if this counts as meeting but I have talked to Pat Nugent on the Phone before asking on how I can get them to look at a script I wanted to submit. Really nice lady.

    I would LOVE to meet Eric Jacobson as I think he's doing a fantastic job with Frank's characters, particularly Grover. I HAD the opportunity to meet Frank Oz but didn't follow through with it because I was trying to do the right thing at the time...I can kick myself now.....

    I went to graduate school with Heather Henson, but she's the only one from the company I've actually met. Seen a few others from afar though.

    "Hey Folks!"

    I just added two new photos to my pics from my Myspace!

    These two pics are of me with Steve Whitmire and Sweetums at the Barnes & Nobles at Lincoln Center in New York. These pics were taken in 11/14/03 on the day where Steve Whitmire and Kermit were making an exclusive appearance at Barnes & Nobles.

    You can check out my photos at www.myspace.com/jesseoliver1 and click on the photo album Me and Muppet People.

    I will be adding more photos soon.

    "ENJOY EVERYBODY!" :)

    Are you just bragging, now? Seriously though, what are the chances of meeting all those people? You must be really lucky or something.

    Man, you guys are SOOOOOOOO lucky! I've NEVER actually met anyone from the Henson Company, though I DO have Kevin Clash's (and Elmo's) autograph.

    And Craig Shemin is with the Henson Company? Wow, I didn't realize that! I DO know he wrote a lot of episodes of Courage the Cowardly Dog.

    Great lists everybody! Cool that you all got to meet those great people.

    I met Lisa Henson in person, at the MT&R Jim Henson event a couple years ago. She was really kind and gracious, and she like my dragon puppet! My puppet Rufus & I got a picture with her, as well as a signed copy of It's Not Easy Being Green - And Other Things To Consider. I know she didn't write it, but that's just fine with me!

    I would've met Brian Henson as well, but I had to leave early as my flight was about to take me home. I would have planned to stay longer if I knew the presentation was going to be, well, longer! Oh well, I'm sure I'll get to meet him someday.
