Subject: RE: BS: Brushes with Greatness
Oh, I did an interview with Leslie Thomas (Stand up Virgin Soldiers, etc) for BBC Radio 4, I have the tapes if anyone wants..... No? Ah well.

And I met Terry Pratchett, at a wedding. He was sitting at a table, not talking to people,wearing a black polo necked jumper, black leather jacket and black hat, and I asked the groom who he was, thinking he looked familiar. 'Who do you think he is?' was the grooms mysterious reply. 'Well he looks just like Terry Pratchett', says me. 'You'd be right them, but he's here incognito'. So how incognito was he? He was wearing a black polo necked jumper, black leather jacket, black hat. What is he wearing in all his publicity photos up to this point?? Black polo necked jumper (hand made in lambswool and flown in specially from Texas), black leather jacket and black hat. And just in case you weren't sure, there were 8 copies of his latest book (Lords and Ladies) on the parcel shelf of his Morgan car, and he gave one as a wedding present to the bride.... well she is in it, so there is another brush with greatness - I know the 'Over the fender, Julia'!! (it's there, look hard for it, it's said by the dried frog pill eater)
