My first celebrity sighting

Bob Geldof came into the shop today. I didn't even catch a glimpse of him cuz I'm useless. Apparently he told Elin, the sweetest girl in the world, that our walky-talkies make us look stupid. Yes, that's right, we wear walky-talkies around the shop.

But that's nothing. This weekend, I went to a pub in Chalk Farm with Holly, Tanya, Simon and James. I walked out onto the patio to find us a table in the sun, and as I was glancing around, I noticed a guy who looked kind of like Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl (except way more tan). I was like, "Nah, it can't be him. All these women on the patio are giving him a wide berth and acting completely normal. Must just be a look-alike."

But it did look a lot like him, so I kept stealing glances back at him (read: trying not to be obvious about the fact that I was staring at him.) It was him. No doubt in my mind. The same crooked teeth, lips, and eyebrows. The overwhelming cockiness in his posture. It was so him. Knowing that I had drinks at a pub that *Chuck Bass* (can't be bothered to look up his real name) goes to makes me feel like I could almost sort of a little bit be mistaken for a cool person. Almost.


  1. Bob Geldof? Was he in some way connected to U2?

    No idea who Chuck Bass is, but yes, presence of celebrity at one of your hang-out spots does bump you up a couple notches on the cool-scale. Not that I would know from being ON the cool-scale; I just know ABOUT the cool-scale. I look at it from far away.

  2. You know he sang the song "I don't like Mondays" back in the late 70's or early 80's. Perhaps he's still dealing with that...

  3. Oh yeah, Ms Petey, he is from The Boomtown Rats. In no way connected to U2.

  4. Wow, I am not cool enough to even know what you people are talking about! Since I will probably never know, please continue telling me all about what it feels like to be cool. Then maybe I can at least imagine it!;)

  5. Every moment of resistance to temptation is a victory. ....................................................
