i was driving to the gold coast from brisbane and saw a billboard that included the words "great escape"

i immediately thought of the blur album "the great escape" (click), i am quite the fan of blur.

then a car towing a boat overtook me - the boat was a "four winns" model (click), and just like the one seen on the cover of "the great escape" album.

...then, "charmless man" began to play on triple J (my radio station of choice).

i was looking around to see if there were any cameras focused on me (candid camera style) as this was definitely a wtf series of events, my facial expressions and vocalisations would have made great comedy i am sure.

I work at a place with about 200 other employees (most of whom I've never met). Every year, there is a Xmas dinner for the staff.

I hadn't heard anything about it yet, and vaguely wondered when it would be. I came into work today at the usual time, and didn't see anybody around. I was working away, when my friend came in with a plate of food. The conversation went like this:

"Did you go downstairs for the free food?"
"What free food?"
"The Xmas dinner was today!"
"I haven't heard anything about Xmas dinner! Did you get an e-mail about it?"
"Yeah."

I didn't get an e-mail, nor a flyer in my mailbox, which apparently everyone else got; there were no signs posted in the kitchen or mail room like every other year, and no one mentioned that it was going to be held today.

I went downstairs, and there was part of a turkey leg, and half a spoon of sweet potatoes, and dessert.

It looks like I am the only person who knew nothing of it.

At least I got some pie.

No wonder I feel like a non-entity at this place... it's because I am.

This topic seems to include celebrity encounters so I will list those I have encountered, although not recently. I've worked in Las Vegas consumer electronics and computer retail stores. I have helped the following celebrities to make their buying decisions:

George Carlin (One of my heroes)
B.B. King (very nice)
Jerry Lewis (very reserved)
Dick Smothers (very intelligent)
Flip Wilson (very outgoing)
Penn and
Teller (He does talk!)
Gladys Knight (the Pips must have been in the car.)
Mike Tyson (He was surprisingly short, but I didn't point that out to him.)
Greg Maddox
Max Bayer (Jethro Bodine)
Elvis (an impersonator, but a surrealistic moment)
Marilyn Monroe (impersonator, but a surrealistic moment)

I guess to summarize, celebrities go shopping like everyone else.

This wasn't lately but years ago I was lugging a load of laundry down a few blocks to the laundromat. I noticed all these RV's parked on the side of the street. I lived in a small urban neighborhood where most of the houses were built in the early 1900's. Anyway then I start seeing all these period cars and I'm thinking WTF? Then I glance over at the house to my side and James Woods is standing on the porch just looking at me. I walked right into a movie location. :roll:

Followup to my previous post:

There has been a staff mailing list for the last four years. I haven't been on it.

See under "non-entity."

I was in the city the other day suddenly beeing stopped by the police. They prevented everyone on the street keep walking and told us to stay still and dont move. At the same time it started to rain, and that was a MASSIVE HUGE SHOWER!! ! I didnt have any raincoat or anything to protect me so I emediately went totally soaky wet. The crowd on the other side of the very tiny street was fleeing the area but I was stuck where I was.
Then a police caravan came followed by a fancy car cointaining the ROYAL FAMILY. I saw them in the car, smiling and waving their hands at me freezing and squeezed against a wall drowned in water....

My friend was throwing a fit today because of the fact that he couldn't paint the wall properly... In the middle of the class. :lol:

I tried not to laugh but I did because he then said something to me which totally didn't make any sense at all, nor everyone else got it.... we was all in fits at the end of the day. :lol:

Another one of my wtf moments is was going to college and then suddenly forgetting my college pass, and there is NO way you could get in without a college pass.... I certainly weren't pleased by that. :(
