CELEBRITY SIGHTING* – UPDATE

Just spotted: comedic tag team Punt and Dennis in the Pret A Manger on Wardour Street. Just now. Literally. If you run you might still catch them (though not if you're coming from Stockport).

*When I loosely apply the term 'celebrity' I'm referring to anyone alloted more than the standard 15 minutes of fame, who I've seen on TV more than once, and considering the rampant bar-lowering by shows such as Celebrity Big Brother as to what constitutes a celebrity, I reckon even I count as famous by now, so there.

I keep seeing Steve Punt around here.

Maybe it's part of an attempt to keep their celebrity status alive. Hey, people are blogging about seeing them so it must be working!

I sometimes see Nick Robinson, the political editor of the Beeb, in the cafe opposite. And I go to the same bakery as James Meek. Oh, and the guy from the fast show always walks past the window of Mercury when Sam and I are in there, AND ALWAYS IN THE SAME DIRECTION, as though the street is a screensaver, and repeats itself after a few minutes.

Btw, The Running man wasn't directed by Verhoeven - it was Paul Michael Glaser. It is very Verhoevenish, though.

I just saw TV 'funnyman' Jimmy Carr spitting his chewing gum into the gutter in Clerkenwell.
