  3. Easy - bring it on. Typing dogs are rare enough - a bit of exposure might be a good thing :tongue:

    I don't think I would like the isolation in that you can't walk down the street anymore, pop into Sainsburys etc couple that with there will be some who have green eyes and want to confront you.

    I will give it a miss thanks.

    Can't think of anything I could be famous for. Not good at sport, not photogenic, can't sing, can't act, dance like a duck, not a whizz at business...

    Have I missed anything?

    I had a brief taste of fame after the opening ceremony at the TdeF this year -people were coming up to me all weekend asking for photos, autographs, pointing me out etc. I soon got very tired of it I can assure you.

    All the free alcohol on the saturday night was nice though and I did get to chat with Tanni Grey-Thompson, Katie Derham, Ken Livingston and lots of other 'famous' people.

    There was a guy (Stephen Pile) who wrote a book called "Heroic Failures" which recognised those who had failed spectacularly. He also started the "Not terribly good club of Great Britain" - and then had to close the group when it became a success!

    i think i could hack it. definitely, as long as i was rich with it. i mean i wouldn't want to be famous and not be rich... what's the point in that? or famous but dead. even worse ;)
