  1. I have to admit, I only read the first eight things. But I like the idea a lot. Now I wonder if there are even 101 things worth listing about us? But I am pretty jealous that a drunk Bob Brown gave you a stack hat.

    It’s really hard to top that.

    1. Ha! Yes well, the thing about receiving a stack hat from a drunk Bob Brown when he was the Minister for Transport is that all I think is that he’s a complete tosser now!

      But Im always trying to top it…I once saw Prime Minister John Howard in his ‘FederalOne’ car stopped at the lights in Sydney CBD and I just waved at him like I knew him. He smiled at me but it was weird like an awkward Mexican standoff.

      I have many stories of awkward encounters with well known people…

  2. Great post. I was checking continuously this weblog and I am inspired!
    Very helpful info specially the final section 🙂
