What have you to offer along similar lines?
it's suceeds "the Dandy Xtreme Maxxx" in 2013.
a long time ago
and do you have big baps?
And Emin Roc A Rol (or something) once. Welsh TV extraing kept me alive at uni.
they came into our local pub which they use for filming, and asked us to leave. My friend was being obnoxious and kicked up a fuss, so they let us stay in the background. They told us to just sit there and chat. but as neither of us speak welsh, we just had to say "blah blah blah" and hum.
I just found an advert in a local paper in Bangor - they used to pay us 40 quid a day + lunch, just to sit around in the background of a cafe. Though the Emin Roc a whatever show we did was set in the 70s which was fun, except that when I turned up in my normal attire they told me I didn't need to go into costume because I looked like I was in the 70s anyway! Stupid brown cords.

I got a joke published. Still my greatest achievement outside of expert minesweeper in sub- 90 seconds.
tintin competition run by my local book shop.
My older brother won :(
nature of this 'tintin competition'?
My little brother won a competion at the same bookstore: £100 of book vouchers and a 5* break in chester. All for colouring in a picture of Spot the Dog. Badly!
Unfortunately he got the croop in the hotel. And a monkey through poo at my dad and my other brother at Chester Zoo.
It's an enduring mystery.
pulled kate nash in a club before she was famous.... apparently
the trachtenburg family slideshow players.
a picture of me reading my copy of the comic and my baby brother sitting next to me also appearing to look closely at the brightly coloured adventures.
they added speech bubbles to have us telling each other a joke.
in the Beano!
I had a Dennis the Menace t-shirt on, and was holding my Dennis the Menace Birthday cake.
I did not, however, have a superimposed speech bubble telling a joke. I'm jealous.
I felt violated.
joke printed in "Buster" when I was 6 or 7!
I also had a joke printed in 'Buster' when i was 6.
I never thought i'd meat another with the same great tale.
For the records it was:
'How do you make a snail fast?'
'Take away its food'
when I was ten.
Find kid with same birthday as store opens with best sob story to warm the hearts of readers.
Apparently I had the most heartstring-stirringly story of setbacks and triumph every child born in Bristol on 7 April...
Someone should buy the movie rights.
setbacks and triumphs?
come on, stir our heartstrings this friday afternoon.
I was born so mangled, for want of a better word, my Dad's workmates sent my Mum a sympathy card rather than a congratulations card. My Dad's mother told my Mum it was all God's plan, which I think my Mum still resents even though my Dad's mother has now been dead 10 years.
It was generally considered very possible I'd never be indepedent enough to live on my own and would always need care and support.
My primary school teacher tried to block me from getting into the school and palm me off to a special school, which my Mum refused point blank to consider.
When I was 7 it was accidentally discovered that I had a long-term heart condition that would have killed me in my 30s and aged 8 I went under a life-threatening operation to correct this (luckily this worked)
Meanwhile, although having a good reading age, all my teachers assumed I was thick 'cos my handwriting was so bad until it became clear that I had fine motor co-ordination problems and my brain worked fine but my hands just don't quite do what it tells them to.
And that was pretty much where I was when I was 10.
Obviously now I'm 25 years old, live away from home and function just fine, have a BA, an MA and a job, an album coming out on a label next year, a chapter in an academic textbook coming soon and generally seem to be doing okay.

I might get to meet Sharon Osborne.
you should have set your sights higher- a Safeways, perhaps, or a Sainsburys.
I hear you have to have been raped to open a waitrose.
That's probably not classy enough though is it?
did you pay her to do it?
I kept telling her I wasn't interested, she kept dropping her price, I kept telling her I wasn't interested and eventually she attempted to snog me and simultaneously steal my wallet.
I was pretty drunk at the time and it took me a good 10 seconds to work out what was going on, pull away from her and emerge with my wallet intact.
just sitting there in class one day and noticed a picture of myself aged about 8 standing in a supermarket looking a bit sad
mention on DIS for a gig I played years ago. I was dead chuffed tho :o)
I think I had a letter published in Official Dreamcast Magazine once, but I could have just made that up. If not, I definitely had 3 or 4 emails shown on the Digitiser letters page.
I was asking for cheats for Bubble Bobble.
