Was he carrying a rope / candlestick / gun / dagger / spanner and did he have a guilty look on his face?

Over the course of the past week:

Park Chan Wook, on the street,
Naomi Kawase, also on the street
Gael Garcia Bernal at a restaurant
David Lynch getting in to a lift I was getting out of.

Spoke to them all, Lynch was clutching a bottle of red wine and very cheerful

Sat next to Gilbert and George at a restaurant last Saturday.
Didn't even know it was them and they took no notice of my enquiries as to the state of their grub.
Couldn't work out why people kept taking photos until someone told me it was them.
Was glaringly obvious once I had been informed though.

They are a very strange pair to say the least.

One of them spoke to me once (what a claim!). I was working toshing up a warehouse in Fournier Street in the 90's and I went to get the teas in from a cafe at the top of the road. Couldn't help noticing the immaculately-dressed man eating in the in the corner and got a very posh 'Good Morning'. Dunno which one it was, but it's the one who is Italian or from the Balkans or something. Seems they don't have a kitchen at home and always dine out. Sort of situation I'd like.

I got a very posh "good evening" from both in unison as I walked through Spitalfields one evening. I was genuinely thrilled.

Thibaut Courtois' new other half Delaney Royle in my car tonight. I went to see Depeche Mode with her mum and picked her up on the way back from St Mary Cray station.

Via a mate's mate, spent the evening in the company of Robert Huth at the Champions League Final. Terrific bloke, genuinely decent guy and good company. Got into the VIP section of a couple of clubs, also met Van der Sar at one of them (a truly enormous guy) and were in a booth next to the Black Eyed Peas.

Considering the circumstances in which we had to divert and pick her up, grabbing a picture on my phone of her in the back seat wasn't at the forefront of my mind.

However, those on my Facebook may well have seen some posts tagged from yesterday with her mum in them...

This is what her old man has to say about it :D

“There’s no relationship ­be­t­ween her and a Chelsea pla­yer. Maybe one day a West Ham player. It’s a West Ham player or nothing, that’s the rules.”
