Statto of Fantasy Footy fame was in my office today.
Which 'famous' people have visited your workplace?
in HMV and met:
Orlaith from Big Brother
Who are any of those people?
one was from Big Brother, the middle two are Fulham footballers and the last one was a Chelsea player and now plays for Newcastle.
I'd be impressed.
That's Symposium. Duh.
Who are Symposium?
I used to speak to Angus all the time at my old job :D
He's a lovely man.
I somehow doubt it.
Well maybe only because you are an old man compared to my sprightly youthful self. And you support silly teams.
DO I? You can't bring age into it. You're a loser. You just need to learn to live with it :)
No, I can beat you at anything that doesn't involve having a grasp of the English language.
And you really do support silly teams.
I'm glad you added the 'grasp of English language thing' :) Ok then, I challenge you to the following quizzes, to take place at a later date: Chumbawamba - the singles; ways in which Tom Aldous sucks; Sub Pop; Britpop, 1994-1997; girls what I have sexed 1998-2006.
It's like disco fever but even better!
is easy, it's only my mum.
met the Archbishop of Cantebury too, I've cooked for him...he's a nice guy.
Comes in pretty much every day. I think that's as famous as it's ever likely to get around here...
To send him round next time he's over and they're out of teabags, thinking on it.
often came into my old office. We'd had a few other actors in there too: Steven Mackintosh, Ashley Walters, Mark Strong, Romola Garai.
but that was before I started.
& my history teacher. Who's not a celebrity. But she complained about the rice and had an argument with my manager. It was vaguely amusing.
drinks to Brian Deane. And Nasty Nick.
An E in his name?
If we're on about the same one. I once wrote a song about him. I love Brian Deane.
Etc. It went on for some time. I have it on tape. I need to stop telling this story.
Carlton Palmer song. It involved a farm, it was like a Joanna Newsom epic... just replace "Emily" with "Carlton Palmer". They should do a duet.
Palmer and Deane, obviously.
Not you and my brother. Apologies.
Um, abandon reply? I need to be distracted from this media coursework.
he got mobbed (cos he scored a goal the week before). was quite funny.
does that count?
He was wearing a hat.
It was not a straw hat.
Was it a burqa?
I beat you with Jeremy Beadle.
Jason Leonard on a regular basis. And various other "famous" rugby players who I've never heard of. Some guy from the Bill used to come into my pub quite a lot too. Probably others I didn't notice cos I was too busy being overworked.
Erlend Oye (who high-fived me, I have since not washed my left hand*)
Jean Paul Gautier
and at the job before that I served Peter Hook who was a member of the place.
*may not be true
A million politicians and princesses.
at my old workplace...sniffer dogs and everything! it was very exciting
On the same day as the Archbishop of Canterbury.
frequented the pub I used to work at. I can never remember his name though
the guy that sings on our adverts on telly
only one of those did I want to leap across the counter and rip their throat out. I'll give you a clue - it was Steve 'Fuckface' 'Cockend' 'Twatfarm' Claridge
coming in next week. David Milliband and Jon Reid have been in in the past month or so, as has Titchmarsh, the cunt.
she's not the dead one
