Sharks, Spaghetti and The Captain of The Starship

We went to The Aquarium this morning and had a lovely time. The highlight for Scrap was when a very big shark swam right in front of us and then did a poo. Why do little boys have such an obsession with poo and burps?
After that we walked along the southbank and met Heidi and her boys for lunch in Strada. I liked it very much actually. They were extremely friendly, the boys shared a pizza, I had a respectable, if not quite hot enough, seafood linguine and the pink Prosecco was on special at £3.50 for a full-to-the-brim flute. The highlight for me was when the lady-friend of Captain Jean-Luc Picard (who was eating a big pudding on the next table) came over to say what lovely, well-behaved children she and The Captain thought our pizza-smeared mob were. I've seen him before you know, buying a very large pan in John Lewis using a very loud actors' voice. And I once saw Andrew Ridgeley (when Wham had just split up) reading a copy of Motorcycle News in a Soho paper shop.

I imagine when they offered him pepper, or perhaps parmesan he uttered 'make it so'. How I would have loved to have been there

Oh and I saw the bloke who plays the old bloke in the office that Martin Clunes works in, in "men behaving badly" in a pub in Greenwich but maybe Terry Gilliam on Tottenham Court road is better.

Recent sightings include Michael Fish on the tube, Tony Robinson and one of his bearded colleagues in our High Street (Winchester) ... well, we were excited! Nothing as dramatic as the Captain though.

I sat next to Derek Foulds in a restaurant in Cornwall and Michael Cashman (MEP and ex of Eastenders) once held a door open for me at a Wedding Present gig at The Astoria.

PS It's not just little boys who are fascinated by poo. It's ace :-)

I sold petrol to Nigel Lawson and Wurzel out of Motorhead in 1987.
And a woman called Marjorie Sex (that's what it said on her credit card.)
