I accidentally bumped into Peter Stringfellow on Grafton St Yesterday, I wasn't quite as sorry as perhaps I should have been. It was strange though, outside of his media personality he's actually quite a normal, well dressed chap, elegant in fact. A far cry from the tiger striped grinning accident in a fucktard drapery factory he normally puts out there.

I am not so much the fan - never had a problem with him until he started insisting on opening his clubs in residential spots in England and Ireland, I just can't find that cool.

I accidentally bumped into Sir John Harvey Jones once walking down Picaddilly, and unlike many other psuedo-celebs he actually looked just as ugly in real life and really was wearing the most disgusting tie I'd seen for a long time...it was actually the tie I spotted first and was thinking "Blimey!! That's the worst tie I've EVER seen! You wouln't even see Sir John Harvey Jones in a tie like.......oh, Hello Sir John"...

I have no earthly idea who that is. Neither does the internet from the look of it, I googled him and theres a different person appearing in the pictures on each page.

Sir John "The Troubleshooter" Harvey Jones. I just googled him and got 5 pages of results before it referred to anything other than Sir John Harvey. Top-class business consultant, he was the first person I recall ever getting onto the tv with a show where he'd go into people's failing/underperforming companies and kick ass. That was before the dot-com boom mind you, so I suppose you could say he was from a different generation.

Ah, back when things were also insane but in a very different way :)

Yes...when wearing a colourful tie was considered the very pinnacle of zanyness. Jeez...we were bonkers!

Oh...and he's also dead. Which might also be something to do with his profile being a little less than it was. Forgot about that.
