Some people resemble celebrities from a distance
You tend to “see” people you know
Eyesight can deteriorate over time
Just sayin

re Chris Morris: I was crossing Waterloo Bridge at the traffic lights a few years ago and my eyes met those of the cyclist at the front of the peloton waiting for the lights to change: full lycra kit, helmet with loads of dark curly hair spilling out of it, birthmark visible behind his goggles and mask - unmistakably CM.

1. Today at lunchtime, sat next to Roger Taylor of Queen at the Manhattan bistro Lucien, 1st Ave. and 1st St. (Queen are playing tonight and tomorrow at Madison Square Garden).

2. Have been sitting on this one a while, but back in April I had a table next to Salman Rushdie, Paul Auster, and Siri Hustvedt at a restaurant in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Re #2 - I once had a table next to Paul Auster at a restaurant in Park Slope as well. It was about ten years ago, though. He was being interviewed and was being kind of a pompous dick to the interviewer, though in fairness to him the interviewer was clearly an idiot.

Might be the same restaurant. I think he's lived in the neighborhood for many years.

Josefa, Wednesday, 7 August 2019 04:18 (two months ago) link

No, sadly the place where I saw him closed a long time ago. It was called Sweet Melissa, and it was a sort of upscale bakery/cafe that did lunches.

ah yes, that space is a gynecologist now

I think you people are making these up now.

True story.

three weeks pass...

This is the second consecutive Labor Day weekend in which I've seen Michael Shannon. Last year I passed him and his daughter on the sidewalk in Red Hook. Today he was on the train back to Chicago from the Steely Dan show in the suburbs.

I've also done this (a long time ago now) with Liam Gallagher. was in a pub in Belsize Park, some wanker comes in prancing about like Kathy Burke in Kevin & Perry, and I say "look at that twat, thinks he's Liam Gallagher"

Lesley Joseph of Birds of A Feather fame sitting outside an ice cream parlour in Eastbourne in full stage makeup (she was in Annie in a theatre across the road). Looking damn good for nearly 74 as well.
(I know this will mean nothing to non-UK readers - and most UK readers probably).
