Oh no! Had he lost your address? That's so sad ...... I'm picturing you there with the cucumber sarnies curling up at the edges and the milk going sour in your best bone china cups, as his holiness whizzes past in his pope-mobile  :(

(Can't think of a claim to fame at the moment)

My claim to fame is that I'm married to a man who is first cousins to a movie star.  She starred in movies with Shirley Temple.

In your lifetime, try to be the person your pet thinks you are.

Well, my country is so very small, so its hard not to be related or connected somehow to at least someone whos local somebody.
But worldwide fame... hmm... I made eye contact with Madeline Albright once :lol:
(No, she was not in that movie. She was US Secretary of State during Clinton, you ignoramuses ;) )

I went to the same school as Frank Skinner (a stand up comic here in the UK), it was about 20 years after he left mind.

Yeah, I think he did. Although I was referring to senior school which was Warley High or Oldbury College of Sport as its called now.


Edited to edit my previous post as I have only just noticed I missed out a word, was meant to put I almost went to the same school... :P I really ought to read my posts before I click submit...oh well...

The hill that my neighborhood is on is right across the hill that has the neighborhood in which the Kardashians and (I think) Brittney Spears live...so I like to call us neighbors. :P And Pamela Anderson walks her dog (a golden retriever, if anyone cares) on my school's campus, so I've greeted her. OH and I've seen a bunch of athletes whose name I don't know shopping at my local grocery store.

I once had coffee with Johnny Depp and Julie Christie on the set of 'Finding Neverland'.

"Gæð a wyrd swa hio scel, ac gecnáwan þín gefá!": "Fate goes ever as she shall, but know thine enemy!".
I can teach you with a quip, if I've a mind; I can trick you into learning with a laugh; Oh, winnow all my folly and you'll find, A grain or two of truth among the chaff!
