I'm not sure that black blousey thing quite suits you.

I'm not having politicians as 'celebs.' They are public servants.

Someone should tell the Tories that.

An e-meet, if they count:

 

I tagged David Fairclough on a social post of mine the other day... and he "liked" it.

Not only that he connected with me too.

 

Was made up.  Felt like an 11 year-old school boy again.

 

Cheers, "Super Sub".

One of my favourite boxers Michael 'second to' Nunn just accepted my friend request on Facebook.  I've arrived. 

Oh and Lennox Lewis liked a comment I made on his page a while back.. I feel like we're best friends now.

All the Smiths (when they were ex-Smiths, I'm not that old) apart from Johnny Marr. Mike Joyce was the friendliest, Andy Rourke's girlfriend shared her (and I presume his) Columbian marching powder with me and my mate, I didn't think he was very impressed with that.

 

Hung out with Sean Hughes and drank with him before a gig.  Friendly guy and a good laugh, died way too soon.

 

Met Jarvis Cocker in the Washington pub in Sheffield (it was owned at the time by Nick Banks the drummer in Pulp).

 

Was in the (now long gone) 'British pub' Ye Coach & Horse in LA back in 2010 and James Gandolfini walked in.  The place was dead - only our group (three lads, two girls) in there - but didn't go up to him, just nodded and said "alright" to him and he nodded back.  He was absolutely huge (size and presence).

 

Alan Hansen at Heathrow, 2012 and Big Jan before the Manc game in 2010.

Was in Jamaica in early 90s, all inclusive and pissed on red stripe every night.  Stood next to  Thomas Hearns at the bar one night and told him he was smaller than I expected,told me to fuck off and walked away.

Next night Jim Brown (ex NFL superstar and actor, Dirty Dozen etc)was at the bar. Trying to remember who he was I asked him if he played Shaft. Told me to fuck off and walked away.

Haven't wanted to talk to any celebrities since then, because they all appear very rude tbh.

Lennox Schmellox. The best ‘Lewis’ is the MP for Norwich South, Clive, who incidentally follows me on Twitter. I like all of my Twitter followers equally though, which means you’re better than Lennox too. 
 

I was Facebook friends with Derry Mathews. You’ll not be surprised to hear that he’s a fucking divvy. 
 

I was also Facebook friends with ‘Mad Dog’ Deon from Birmingham, who shot to fame on Jeremy Kyle. 
 

Deon%20Hulse%20appearing%20on%20the%20Je

 

Deon was nothing like Derry Mathews. Deon used to post a lot about philosophy and economics and he actually taught me a lot about life, art and politics. He got fitted up by the coppers for nicking metal frames worth £3,500 to scrap in and pay off weed debts, but that wasn’t what happened at all. He was just borrowing them to use at a street art exhibition to raise money for disadvantaged children. And also to pay off weed debts.

'Met' might be pushing it , but Kenny Dalglish was eating in Tibu , a new sushi place in Formby Village earlier this evening.

I hope he had the best seat in the house and that his food was spectacular

He had a very nice table , can't comment on his food as I don't eat sushi and had a steak.

The model, Daisy Lowe in a pub near the Albert Bridge (called "The Albert Bridge", as it happens). Said 'hello' to her when she came in with her little dog. Turns out she just wanted to use the toilet. That or her dog was very well trained.

Was looking through a photo album searching for old pictures of my grandparents and I found this one from 1979.

I was a ballboy in the Australian Hardcourt Tennis Championships.

This is Argentinian Guillermo Vilas, world number three at the time, behind Bjorn Borg and Jimmy Connors.

Great bloke.

Bought me a glass of Coke a couple of times in the players lounge... while I used to try to explain the cricket on the TV to him - it was the Ashes in Australia that summer.

The photo was taken by his coach, Romanian Ion Tiriac, who went on to coach Boris Becker.

Great photograph, mate. Your hairdo is not unlike Jimmy Connors’ hair was back then.

My Mum told me to invite him and Tiriac to dinner.

But I didn't have the guts to do it.

They so would have come too, I reckon in hindsight... Mum was saying she'd cook them a Hungarian goulash.

 

I ball-boyed at the net in the Final, in which he beat Australian Mark Edmondson.

That's how I read that line. No idea why.

    • He’s got a few more seasons at the club though.    
    • I know I'm speechless here.
    • The main part was the news reports of the vaccine effectiveness percentages dropping, so even though you can't read it all the percentages can still be seen mostly.
    • No it wasn't meant to be. If enough supermarkets stopped allowing unvaxxed to get food and there's people that are isolated with no contacts they could end up starving.   Maybe some older people that don't use the internet and decide to go to a food bank or something, until they get so depressed from it that they stop going as much because they no longer see the point in life when they're cut off from being able to go anywhere without being vaxxed. Depression starts getting worse, trips to the food bank get rarer, nobody is checking on them, it's not much of a step from there.   Are there several things the person could've done to avoid things getting that bad? Of course, but there's probably going to be some people that don't do those things for various reasons. Ill health, physically and/or mentally being one.   Cases like that could be extremely rare if they happened, but one person ending up seriously ill or dead because they're not allowed to use a supermarket is one too many. And no, "get vaxxed" isn't the answer to that scenario. There's still choice right? Because if the choice is gone then we have fascism.   I don't care how stupid you think this is, if food can't be bought from supermarkets then rare cases could happen.   I was also being extreme because I responding to you saying that people serving unvaxxed was fascism. I didn't start posting about the issue saying people were going to starve to death.

Face paint too.
