I went to school with celebrities: film stars, academics, writers, high profile politicians and so on. Somehow, I always felt slightly inadequate that I was not Emma Thompson (bet she doesn’t remember me! – she's 4 years younger than me too) or a professor of molecular genetics at a London teaching hospital (he does remember me, we still have a beer or two on occasion), I even on occasion think that being a senior lecturer in statistics at Cambridge University would be cool. It might even be cool to be an Oracle expert.
But today, I think I have made it. At the UK OUG BI special meeting I acquired a stalker! – And no, Tom, she did not spill water on me, I guess the wine was too precious to waste on my clothes. (Sorry Lisa)
