[Error: unknown template qotd]Hm, never met anyone famous incidentally, as far as I recall (except for running into a really obnoxious politician from my city while on a 9/11 commemoration ceremony... but he's not really a 'celebrity', thank God!)
But I did meet a few more or less famous people while hunting for autographs. That would be Patrick Stewart, Rowan Atkinson and British "Any Dream Will Do"-winner Jodie Prenger at the stage doors of their respective venues, plus I met some of the German Olympic Champions and World Champions in horseriding, e.g. Ludger Beerbaum, Franke Sloothaak and Otto Becker, who regularly come/came round to a horse show that takes place near my parent's home town.

Thank God the new "Doctor Who" only has 4 series' so far. So my choice would be:

"Peter's Friends" and
"Doctor Who" Series 1-4; or is it cheating to count a box set as one DVD? No, don't think so ;)

Best is hard to say - there were a few I liked. Kate Winslet looked stunning, as did Amy Adams. Meryl Streep, whose dress last year was kind of... erm...strange... made a good choice this year I think. Nothing spectacular, but simple and beautiful. And it matched her daughters dress, which was kind of cute.
The worst - easy: Sophia Loren. It might have been not just the dress, but her overall look, but she reminded me of a scarecrow.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I have to admit that I ruined the movie "Titanic" for a friend of mine. We were talking about it and I was going like "I think it's soo predictable that Leonardo's character dies at the end." She was genuinely surprised by that. But honestly - did anybody believe in a happy ending? When I made that statement, I hadn't even seen the movie myself, but I thought the outcome of the story was chrystal clear XD

[Error: unknown template qotd] I'm so not into parties. The last "real" party (music, dancing etc) I attended New Year's Eve must have been about 6 years ago. This year it's just my sister, some friends and me having a nice night - dinner, card games, trying to calm down the kids, fireworks at midnight, that kind of stuff.

[Error: unknown template qotd] I've actually never seen 'It's a Wonderful Life'.
My favourite Christmas movies are 'Love Actually', 'Die Hard' (yes, that is a Christmas movie!) and the 'Emil i Lönneberga' movies. They're kids stories, based on the novels by swedish author Astrid Lindgren. Wonderful fun stuff around the boy Emil (in Germany he's actually called Michel), a prankster who lives on a farm in the district of Lönneberga in Sweden.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Oh, I love the X-files. To single out just one episode is incredibly hard, though. Amongst my favourite ones would be "Squeeze" (with the liver-eating mutant Eugene Victor Tooms) and "Darkness Falls", both from season 1. In general I always liked the "monster of the week" episodes more than those dealing with the alien conspiracy theories.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Oh well, since I always laugh about those stupid people on reality TV shows who want to live somewhere but don't think it would be necessary to learn the language first... I guess I'd choose some place with English as official language (or maybe Spanish, but I'd have to refresh my knowledge on that fist). So... I guess the UK it would be. Been there a few times as a tourist and really enjoyed it (though living somewhere permanently is completely different, of course).
