I'm soooo LA

Okay, I'm not. At all. But you'll see what I mean in a second.

The "sanctuary" at my church is set up a little differently than most churches I've attended. We are all seated in sort of a semi-circle, where you can pretty much see everyone in the church.

As we were singing the opening songs today, I was looking around to see who was there. And lo and behold, I spotted them.

Who, you may ask?

THE JONAS BROTHERS.

They were at my church. Well, Nick, Kevin and Kevin's wife. I was pretty giddy at my sighting and I could not tell you a single song of theirs. I had heard they were Christians which is cool, but was even more psyched that they were at church. Weird, Christians in church. I know.

But the best part? No one paid them any mind. No announcements, no whispers, nothing. They were able to sing/pray/listen and then leave like normal people.

I guess it's sort of an LA thing, though. Celebrities are often seen out and about and most are usually left alone. Like yesterday, for example.

My friend and I were at one of the outdoor malls and she said she saw Jason Lee walk by. I wasn't sure so we followed him and his kid into H&M. Hey, I had to get a good look! Turns out, it was in fact him. (P.S. He is actually quite attractive when he doesn't look like Earl from My Name is Earl. He also looks like he could be David Arquette's brother.)

Anyway, aside from our tiny stalk-fest, there was no crowd, no pointing, nothing. He was free to bicker with his wife in the aisles of H&M and no one cared.

I think that's one of my favorite things about LA. While it's certainly a superficial town and fame-seekers flock here, by and large most celebrities are given an opportunity do normal things most of the time.
