I don't *think* I have any famous relatives, although my dad shares a name with some super-high-ranking Army dude who is always on TV talking about the war.

My friend Elliot is somehow related to General Patton, too.

my uncle is worth over $100 million dollars.

he's an alberta native.

most people would have a hard time believing it, but the construction company who built their house made a little book of it.

it's the nicest house i've ever seen in real life, aside from the mansions/palaces i was in in europe.

My maternal grandmother's family were the ruling class (Doges) of Venice for about 1000 years. Most of the significant palaces on the Gran Canal bear our name.

I lived with who would later become Napoleon Dynamite in Tokyo.

As unbelievable as that sounds, it's true.

Now THAT is cool.

You lived with Napoleon Dynamite.

I don't know who here can top that.

I'm not even being sarcastic.

Hate to spoil the family reunion with Paul, but Linda is not from the Eastman’s of Eastman-Kodak fame. Her father Lee Eastman and brother John Eastman were New York show-business attorneys, and her father changed the family name from its original Epstein. This was not lost for a moment on John Lennon or Allen Klein, who marvelled at the exchange of the late Brian Epstein for another would-be manager of the same name.
