A lady that used to work here is in that Kindle ad, she pops up and helps some fellow having kindle problems.
of people round. He's not 12. Get her to have a word.
now that she's a hollywood big time. It's like she's forgotten her roots.
she left to become an actress so I was checking what films she was in etc, wasn't the best idea.
It's like she's mental.
always complained it made her very "gassy"
Can beam movies to your TV with no setup whatsoever required.
lily and alfie
ben and andrew fuck buttons (semi-great)
i'm talking about real life
us (maths) them and rolo tomassi did that weekender together years ago. So basically everyone there except me
(but I left 8 years ago)
Press and Marketing Assistant, worked for Melanie (who has only just left, I think? Saw the job advertised the other day!)
Mel's still there actually, it was the other Marketing Manager who left recently. Small world!
I loved working there! It was my first job out of university. A bit alarming to remember that it was also the start of my DiS posting career.
And possibly spectacularly open to abuse, both from Amazon who can apparently control your device remotely, and from lonely wankers who can bring up the face of a charming Irish woman (I assume they will all be charming Irish women?) whenever they want a bit of company/grot material.
I know Charlie Brooker said this on his programme, but I was thinking it before that, alright?
I think there is another non-irish woman version, but i don't know her.
but I'm interested to know. What are you talking about?
Met her a few times. She was nice.
wow guys. Not one?
hannah out of yogscast?
first time i met him he was telling me he was going to auditions for the hobbit movies :D
Saw him ask the drummer for a photo. It was quite sweet.
I've played with some bands that made it kinda big when we were all doing toilet venues.
Boy Kill Boy / Young Knives / Pete and the Pirates / Yanni when he was in Edmund Fitzgerald - Probably some others I've forgotten about.
No-one in my year at school made it big because they're literally all wankers of some description. Even my mates.
Supporting people like VV Brown, Dog is Dead, Clock Opera, Post War Years etc. Weirdest one to think back to was supporting Bastille in a small, half-full pub and then less than a year later he had a No. 1 album
They grew up to become White Lies.
when they were still called Fear of flying.
I think we all know who made the wrong decision.
he was pretty good at running then too
the girl I sat next to a fair bit at school because our surnames were next to each other alphabetically was on that don't tell the bride programme the other month. I didn't watch it but my mum said she'd let herself go. bit harsh.
goes out with a guy who was in the background shot of the bride throwing the bouquet in a dont tell the bride wedding.
If you pause it at the right moment then you can see his semi-blurred half face
Big up to the boy IDS
i went to college with her
sold his internet security company for fifty million quid about five years ago.
I guess with hindsight I should probably have tried a bit harder to impress him.
have to say 'yes'. Unless he was ashamed of her or something, but why would he be? Exactly.
Plus his schedule seems to be taking a toll. He looks about 80 these days. This is us back in 1994.
God, we gave him some shit over that Chilli Peppers shirt
Always doing magic he was.
I have a strong feeling he might be
With the bassist from The Enemy ( he was a massive emo)
I sat next to Chris Bates from The Apprentice at school
My mate is Sophie Ellis Bextors bassist
a 14/15 yr old lad called Nathan Robertson. He became a world champion and won Olympic silver.
He was even on Question Of Sport.
is CEO of a plc or a hedgefund or an NHS trust or is an MP. and then there was me.
Although my best friend from uni is trapped in a hideous marriage with a ridiculous mortgage and a golden handcuffs job. I wouldn't swap places with her ever.
"...the cream cannot help but always rise up to the top,
Well I say: Shit floats"
I'm also under no illusions that I deserve the life I have and nothing more- I chose not to do those kinds of roles, although sometimes I wonder who is the bigger fool since I seem to work just as many hours as them. Case in point- this morning got called to interview by a pretty amnazing Cayman Islands firm (they also have offices in BVI, London and ireland, so would be able to work all over/ fly back to the Uk for free on 'business'.) But I've chosen to be in scotland because being near my family is more imporotant to me right now. Still biting on my lip pretty furiously about it though and wondering What If.
or let me go to Cayman for it (I need to go soon on business anyway, but it will be a red-eye there and back).
why am I even thinking about this, when they called this morning I said I'd think about it but only to be polite as I was thinking No Way.
Foppyish, this is all your fault!
give it a thorough analysis until you've over analysed it to the extent that you're sick of it. Then forget all that and go with your gut feeling.
Without hesitatoin. It's only my silly ead that does the What Ifs. Besides, if I get my head down and make a good life for myself and my family here, then I'll be able to go on holiday to the Cayman Islands should I so wish. (actually, I'd rather go to the turks & caicos on holiday).
Just been pretty much offered amove to a magic circle firm's dubai office. Why could this not have happened to me two years ago?
You seem to me to be doing really well professionally don't be so hard on yourself
Love from fluffybum
It maybe does look like that from the outside.
is a stripper who was on that kavos programme recently. Excitingly enough she got in touch with me this very morning and wants to hang out tonight. Otherwise I might have forgotten.
he took a photo of my using a fish-eye lens
(not a euphemism)
is now an MP.
Within the Tory party he is loudly trumpeted as being 'state educated', but in actual fact he only went to our school for a year or so, having moved from one of the most prestigious colonial public schools in Africa.
So we can all link him to this thread on twitter
such is the rarity of such a thing within the party (I assume)
a Lib Dem councilor in Liverpool.
Every time I Google him he's either been accused of something dodgy or apologising for some buffonish behavior.
Mickey Bushell MBE was in the year above me at primary school.
I met Adam Gemili but it was after he had gone on to great things
broke my friend's nose during a school football match. That was pretty much the tactic iirc, wind him up because he was brilliant at football and when he got sent off we won
Went on to be Marco in Big Brother
Can you ask her what on earth she means plz?
it means that she didn't consider it a hassle to sort it out
not one of the people mentioned in this thread have gone on to do anything particularly great, apart from Mo Farah.
Trust people and they'll be true to you. Treat them greatly, and they will show themselves to be great.
you don't seem to realise that the expression 'Gone on to do Great Things' doesn't actually mean Nobel Peace Prize worthy things.
When he was about 18 he started making shitty little badges of bands and celebrities and that and sold them on eBay. We all used to rip it out of him for it. `Sold any shitty badges this week Jonny?!!`. Top bants.
He's built that into a full on merch business which has a 7 figure turnover. His 30th birthday present to himself was a 5 bedroom gaff in the New Forest or something. Hopes to be retired by 40.
Give a shit about people becoming MPs and that - it's lads like this who are the real heroes.
I want to do something like this. I'm so average. Why was he so successful? Luck?
which satisfied a lot of market demand. Lots of people want inexpensive/unauthorised merchandise (t-shirts/badges/keyrings etc.) with popular figures/celebs on them. Plus he makes a neat line in t-shirts with witty slogans on them.
Nowt to do with luck.
Don't be so hard on yourselves, I'm sure that you're not average, probably at least above average.
wasn't meant to be sorry everyone
lived near me.
Zoe Gillings (semi-famous snowboarder -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoe_Gillings) briefly went out with my mate.
Semi-famous blues guitarist Davy Knowles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Davy_Knowles) went to my school and badminton class.
went on to be in Casualty and then either emmerdale or coronation street
coronation street, dr who and strictly apparently. Recently split from his corrie co-star
hmm... yep, nobody.
but I used to work with Gary Twisted* who went on to run the Cardiff club-night Twisted By Design, which was the subject of a Los Camp! song. Great things but not Mo Farah great.
*real surname redacted
she works for the architect Richard Rogers
went on to be hugely successful stand-up comedian.
used to get on my bus every day, if that counts
She's just a shit Connie the AOL woman.
Now fronts Fenech Soler. Not massive in the UK, but pretty regular radio 1 play and huge in europe. Always hoped he'd do well so it's nice.
but Lauren Mayberry is my ex-flatmate/up until a week ago was the flatmate of a friend of mine until she kicked him out for messing up her flat while she was on tour causing him to move back to Australia.
dunno if I'd call it great things though
Who is she?
i just want to go SCOTTISH, but it doesn't work because i'm trying to do it in the way letterman said it and it's hard to get that over in type
brilliant, brilliant moment. I saw her briefly the other day but didn't have the time to ask how that was as we me and a pal were just picking something up from hers. Also she looked a bit wrecked
wen my website is up at running.
Is now a news anchor in the US.
She was over here a bit and my other half baby sat for her as she got an allowance from the station. £200 and a nandos. Best 2 hours work ever
who've had some reasonable success and seem to be getting a fair bit of buzz
pretty popular with the kerrang crowd and that
But I can't think of anyone, soz
it's more important that you made it here
in the kindle ad, helping a guy with a kindle problem was a "great thing".
That's pretty great
Was amazing to see him go from performing in front of 20 people in Edinburgh back in the day to doing a movie with Jim Carrey.
who went on to play keyboards for Oasis on a couple of albums (plus tours and Knebworth and Maine Road gigs) and then for Sheryl Crow, FSOL and a million other things. Lovely bloke, it's always nice when someone you know who wasn't a massive twat does well.
He's currently filming alongside Reece Witherspoon in The Good Lie.
Remember Mr. Connolly and Horseman??
