Well, I am back. and as much fun as it was reading a decidedly average book, discovering some awesome manga, relaxing with some excellent company and having my photo taken with Clifford the Big Red Dog (I may put that up here if you're lucky), there was one Celebrity Brush with Fame that went way beyond any of my previous brushes. Move over, Kylie. Bugger off, members of Icehouse, Crowded House and I'm sure some other House band.
Last weekend, I met this shimmering star in the celebrity firmament:
Yes boys and girls, I met the Kid with the Duck from the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony. And do you know what he was doing? He was doing the Harry Potter Quiz on my new website.
(he got 2/10. perhaps he'd have done better if he'd actually had the duck with him at the time.)
