I have just returned from a very amusing lunch with two great characters from a well known storage vendor. You know who you are! With topics such as vibrating beds, goosing waiters and short skirts forming a significant part of the conversation - the lunch was further enhanced by a couple of paparazzi's hanging around outside the window during our meal. Being very nosy - I went and asked one of them who exactly they were waiting for and it turns out it was some guy from the CSI series. I'd never heard of him. We were sat there for a couple of hours and no 'celeb' turned up. The paps were so bored in the end they were taking pictures of each other and of a Union Jack flag hanging up outside the hotel. And people think chasing celebs is a glamorous lifestyle. Give me the channel anyday!
