Strangely familiar

The final restaurant visit was extremely jolly. Through luck more than careful planning I'd managed to save the best place for last. Hurrah. It wasn't all easy though, we managed to order the largest starter the world has ever seen and it would have been more then enough for us. Actually, Piqued (who joined me) has already covered this so just read his account, it was a jolly affair.

The waitress told me I looked familiar, I've had four people do that to me in the last three days. It's very strange. Perhaps my hair has now got long enough that I look faintly reminiscent of David St Hubbins from Spinal Tap or perhaps there was an episode of Crime Watch I missed but recently strangers think I'm familiar and it troubles me.

I'm not sure what one is supposed to say in response to 'you look familiar'. One of the International Party Girls said I looked familiar but after an hour of rum fuelled questioning she was no closer to the reason why. Maybe I should say to these people 'oh yes, you owe me five pounds' and thus I could use this strange effect to pay off various credit card bills and things.

That is the best idea ever.

Cow will use that next time somebody she has guaranteed Never Seen Before in her Life says that.

Script for those who appear broke and annoying...

Stranger: You look familiar.
L: Oh yeah – how you been? I hope the lesions cleared up. My doctor says you only have to expect them a few times a month!
