I was in the same year at high school with a chap who later played for the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

I also was in the same year in primary school with a girl who I think is an actress now. Same name and very similar looks (after 20 years :p).

One of our relief teachers at high school was also seen on TV doing some ads and a cameo in Home And Away.

Nothing much here, I met Mel Gibson once, and one of my primary school teachers used to be the drummer in the 70's band "Hush"

urrrrrrrrgh, nah she's no good to me. I was hoping for Kirsty or whatever her name is.

Speaking of footy players, I did work experience at at advertising agency for a week, got to spend the whole shooting commercials with Steve Roach (Blocker) and Paul Sironen. Lotsa fun!

My brother also met Bill Clinton when he came to Australia in 96 or so, at the time he was working at the Yankee Embassy in Canberra. Still have a few cans of mace lying round here somewhere that he 'borrowed'.

Met Chopper Read over in Collingwood one night.
Was having a piss at the Crown Casino & Kevin Costner walked in.
Also, years ago my auntie used to date Mark 'Jacko' Jackson.
Allan Moffat shops at my aunties Antique Shop in Armadale.
One of my mates played for Collingwood F.C.
5 senior matches & 2 goals on debut was pretty good.

What else??

Thats all I can really think of right now
