BJ Upton (or maybe it was his brother Justin or something like that), first draft pick in the MLB went to my school last year. Mark Hamill went to my good friend's mom's school. That's all I really know of.

Do you mean Patrick Fugit's actual sister, or Zooey Deschanel? Because if it was the latter, you're a fool! A fool I tells ya!

Off the top of my head I know that Justin from the first American Idol went to my school (I know his niece) and so did Pink. I didn't search so maybe there were more than that.

The dumped would-be Supreme Court Justice, Harriet Myers. (Myers?)

She came for some alumni meeting a couple weeks ago when she was the biggest deal, and CNN kept calling our school for old year books and phone interviews.

Besides that, my "home" school (the school closest to me physically) that my dad went to 25-30 years ago had some pretty famous people punch out of it. Namely, my dad was pretty good friends with Dennis Rodman, and they lived within blocks of eachother. Ghetto areas, kinda, not much different than where we live today.

Nobody famous went to my school, but Richard Ashcroft (lead singer of The Verve and now solo artist) went to my college. He had the same media teacher, apparently.

But blue smudge - you said "You know Purple Haze? Thats about my school, sorta.". Is it? I allways thought it was about weed?
