Claims to fame
Jonowen: Let's try a more lighthearted and positive thread. My claim to fame is that (cough, cough) I taught two boys in S1 who are now playing SPL football and they scored goals for their respective teams yesterday. Also, I had a kiss from Jimmy Saville (RIP), in a lay-by near Brora, when he was having a rest-stop during one of his John O'Groats to Land's End charity runs.
Jhp05269: I made Sting a cup of lemon tea when I worked in a bookshop.
Mydoll: My sister and I cooked a vegan meal for Fugazi. They said it was the best they ever had.
Delilah0: Met Ann Widdecombe once - loathe her politics but found her in a consummate politician - the common touch indeed.
Irmemac: I was on the same plane as Elvis Costello. I also sat at a table next to Elaine C Smith in Princes Square once. My mad mum was talking about her at the top of her voice, while I cringed opposite.
Carol75: In P7 I was chosen to sing (as part of a group) to the Queen when she visited town.
Seren_dipity: I used to be a barmaid and regularly served Mark McManus (Taggart) his hawf'n'hawf. He was lovely and always tipped "one fer yersel". That would be in the late 80s, early 90s. I served James Cosmo when I was a checkout operator in Littlewoods foodhall in Sauchiehall Street away back in the early 80s. Very pleasant man.
