FAME

Wimbledon has kicked off in Wimbledon and I am loving being right in the middle of all the action, right in the middle of ALL THE CELEBRITIES MILLING ABOUT. In fact, I have become so enamored with FINDING FAMOUS PEOPLE that I have been on extreme high alert. It is already paying off:

"And? what do you meeaaaan '...and...' ?!?!"

Not on TV... or in a magazine.
Or even on the internet?

Warren:
 It's probably someone on holiday

SPANDEX. and  PLAIT.
That has tennis written all over it.

One absolutely can. NOT. argue with spandex and a plait.

Then, the following day, I was walking down the road on high alert for famous people minding my own business when I SPOTTED THEM.

I texted Warren (who was busy at work), straight away.

WARREN!! WARREN!!! I'VE JUST SEEN TWO MORE OF THEM!!!
FAMOUS PEOPLE!!!!!!!!
TWO. OF. THEM!

Warren: Ok! Yeah! Who are they this time?!

Warren: Well - how do you know they are famous?

Warren: Well... there's quite a lot of people getting out of taxis.....

 photo fame29_zps31701ca1.jpg

So if, by any chance, you are passing through Wimbledon with a suitcase, 
wearing spandex and/or getting out a taxi
- I'm keen for your autograph.

Side Note: The Piazza near Wimbledon Centre Court Shopping Centre is hosting a big screen for the duration of play. You can get yourself some drinks, a deck chair and watch the tennis action live in the heart of Wimbles.

The Swan Pub (conveniently 50m from our house) is also hosting The Festival of Ciders from now until July 21.

I'd definitely recommend hitting up these events - and who knows, 
 - you might even see someone famous.

and PS. Last night as Warren was leaving work - he actually saw David Beckham and John Travolta. Yeah, we hate him.

:P

Hahaha, Thomas and I had a competition during our year in London of who would see the most famous people... and what you said here was usually my side of the conversation - though I always counted the black cars with flags on too - it could have been the Queen right?!

BUT then Thomas got a temp job in HMV on Oxford Street - and not only saw so many famous people but served them too (!!!!!) So he lost count of his total and I saw 3 people that I could actually identify. 3! However none of them were David Beckham so Warr beats Thomas with that one haha and now I am a little bit smug. Though, I can't even remember who the third person was that I saw, so I may have imagined that...

Che Kershaw said...

hahaha are you KIDDING?!?! black cars with FLAGS ON THEM!??!?! that's the Queen for SURE. and probably Wills and Kate too. And I heard Lizzy was Friends with Elton - so... he was probably riding up front also. SCORE. hahaha lols :)

All told I killed 28 people which show of force reaffirmed our intentions.
There can also be another famous raiding strategy
utilizing a combination of plenty of Giants and a couple of
healers. Is this performance enough for him to reclaim
the number one spot inside the poind-for-pound
list.
