Famous people in our midst

It has been a source of disappointment to me that, in almost two years of London living, I have encountered almost no famous people at all. Indeed, with the exception of Jeffrey Archer, I have encountered none.

That changed this evening. A few friends took me along to "Rebel Rebel" - where I encountered not only T4's Simon Amstell but also Neil Tennant and Kele from Bloc Party (well.... "encounter" is a strong word. "Observed from a distance" would probably be more accurate). I should go to alternative college Indie nights more often, it would seem.

Of course, going out on an inadvertent celebrity hunt meant that I didn't go to Scoble's Geek Dinner..... a shame since there were several people on the sign-up list that I would have liked to meet. There's always next time I guess....

Richard, which celeb's would you really like to meet or 'observe from a distance'? I'm sure Mr Boris Johnson would be one of your favourites ;-)

Richard, if want to me email me on my IBM UK Address I'll let you know the bus stop that Damon Alban uses with guitar to get to the rehersal studio. My daughter lives in the flat opposite ;-)
