"Me" being arrested? 
27th-Jan-2007 10:20 am
Fu Manchu
Following on to my sister's concern I'd been arrested, had a look around on Sky News (where she said she'd thought she'd seen me). There was a news item on a crackdown on kerb crawlers in the East End, it would certainly fall into the category of "U don't want to know!" yeah and I did see someone that I suppose could be mistaken for me.

Quick bit of vid/screen capture later, what do you guys think (clickable thumbnail)?

Still, seems a bit odd that this would make the news in Australia...

On a less serious note, have booked a place for that occult books talk at Treadwells. Only three spaces left...

You are right from that picture even with the blurry face they could be mistaken for you. Scary though really!
27th-Jan-2007 11:35 am (UTC)
It is, rather. Wonder if I should email this to my parents? ;-)

Actually, I think it needs to be turned into an icon!

What, the bloke right at the back dressed in full Jedi outfit and carrying a plastic light sabre?

27th-Jan-2007 11:29 am (UTC)
Hell yeah, I'd be wearing a Sith outfit!

Complete, I hope, with Darth Maul face tattoos!
27th-Jan-2007 12:12 pm (UTC)
Bah. Darth Sidious for me. Why be the monkey when you can be the organ grinder?
27th-Jan-2007 12:08 pm (UTC)
oh my lord! That is disturbing! Evil twin?

I emailed to book a place and they've not got back to me yet. Baaah.
27th-Jan-2007 12:13 pm (UTC)
I phoned and the woman I spoke to took care of it straight away...
27th-Jan-2007 12:15 pm (UTC)
Oh, and some of us have been speculating that maybe it's that guy at the first SFX con who everyone thought was me or Paul Chan, the guy whose photos the Starfury photo people tried to give me!

Well, either that or maybe I've been under a lot more stress lately than I realised!

I think I'd be most concerned that your sister thought it might have been you rather than the first thought being that it can't have been you and *must* be a lookalike lol

From personal experience, things look different when you're halfway round the world. However logical something sounds, you still can't help worrying. I recall when I was still at boarding school, I caught a news item about a bomb explosion at a South Korean diplomatic ceremony in Burma, where my parents were posted. I *knew* that it was a bilateral event and that my parents were very unlikely to have been involved but the worry still kept nagging at me and I lasted less than an hour before I was running to my housemaster so I could call Rangoon, just to be sure.

You've always struck me as the sort of person that would have an evil twin.

He's always struck me as the sort who would *be* the evil twin, haha!
28th-Jan-2007 12:31 am (UTC)
Damn! You beat me to it! ;-)
28th-Jan-2007 11:13 am (UTC)
And my twin speaks very highly of you too... ;-)

It's nice that you two have such a good relationship. Most evil/good twins, they spend all their time fighting, one tries to have the other killed, the other tries to get the other committed to an asylum, the first pretends to be the second in order to destroy his life and so on.

But you two, you have such a good relationship, so harmonious.

It'd probably be more of an evil/eviler twin thing in my case ;-)
28th-Jan-2007 12:40 am (UTC)
It was good that the police let you out on bail, so you could be at LOTNA tonight ;-)
28th-Jan-2007 12:47 am (UTC)
Indeed, probably less risky than kerb crawling again. Especially when one isn't driving...

Perhaps you could write a book on
behalf of your evil twin. And don't
forget when they offer you millions
for the TV adaption of the book,
ask, no demand that you play the
role yourself. Don't forget to
give a look to the camera that says
"ha ha ha, and one day I WILL rule
the world" ;) Did you have some
rich millionaire to bail you out
just so you could attend the LOTNA
pub night? My, oh my, your level of
commitment to LOTNA is amazing. :)

Kerb crawling is very over rated,
doesn't it hurt their arms? ;))
Well, at least it should if they
are doing it without a car!

Not having the car with me would be the reason I elected to go home after LOTNA ;-)

You, absolutely no doubt about it, that is you.

So 'fess up, what were you doing there? You can tell us, we will not tell anybody else, unless of course it is absolutely amusing.

Cheapest way to enjoy the sensation of being handcuffed.
