I've danced with the man...


...who danced with the girl who...oh well, you get the picture. Jarvis Cocker's sister-in-law, to be precise. It still ranks some way behind my drink with Sting's gran, but it's not bad for a Friday. And it all took place inside a bridge. Which was incredibly hot, but extremely cool (if I may appear to contradict myself). There were all these stone heads lying around that apparently came from the 16th century Pont du Louvre (on the site of today's Pont Neuf). Frankly, it seems as good a place to keep them as any. Anyway, many thanks for the invite to those gorgeously fashionable kids about town Sid and Nancy. Very good fun, even if I was a little pooped from my London trip. I even made the little banner at the top of this post from my camera pics of the lights!! (creative to a fault, some might say). The rest of the weekend was spent lounging around, trying out my new camera, watching football, crying tears of national shame, watching more football, trying to be a good sport, and drinking and chatting with friends on a café terrace into the night as the whole of Paris, or so it seemed, drove past tooting their horns and waving flags. Yes, well I hope they're still tooting and waving on Wednesday night, is all I'll say. Hmmph. (Am such a bad loser, I know).

Hmmm... I can't believe we went from Bonnie and Clyde to Sid and Nancy. I'm cuter than that!

Anyways, that Bidault-Waddington girl should move to England if it carries that much weight to be J.Cocker's sister-in-law.

Ha, well, as I said, less weight than being Sting's granny - so maybe she shouldn't go just yet - but it's all relative (ha!). re: Sid 'n' Nancy, it's true - maybe Noel Coward and Gertrude Lawrence? Dali and Gala? Donny 'n' Marie?

Sounds like a fun party and what a beautiful banner Rhino! But what is it? Is that the microscopic things that live in beds and pillows seen through your disco eyes?

Anyway, It's late and I should go to bed.

By the way, you are such a bad loser

Kisses
(waving and tooting)

Did I ever tell you that I lost my virginity to Noel Coward's grand-nephew?

There you again, you see, raising the FABULOUSNESS quotient of this blog!! I will have to thank you with copious amounts of champagne!! I once dated someone who was related to Beatrix Potter, but that's more cute than fabulous...

I'm struggling to compete here. As an eight year old I once had a painting publicly ridiculed by David Hockney's parents. I also told a member of the England 1966 world cup winning squad that I was a better footballer than him. But the Noel Coward link surely wins it.

rhino75 said...

LOL, I think being ridiculed by David Hockney's parents definitely runs a very close second, Kieran. But Nardac's still in the lead with her unlikely Noel Coward coupling. Ooooh, I may start a Top 10 of tenuous celebrity-related incidents...

I have nothing to contribute! :(

Rob, hon, your mere presence is contribution enough. But I think you should try and meet more quasi-celebrities - it is the way of the future!!
