Meeting Scott

I have realised that I never mentioned how I saw Tim Westwood, smiled at him, got a smile back yet only realised 10 minutes late who it was... How useless I am! Scott is so lovely and chatted to us for a little bit before he went inside :)


My goodness, that's a pretty funky donkey!

For the international viewers, this is a privilege we will probably never have.

I'm an international listener and last summer I had the chance to meet the actual Lord of the Geeks. And not just him...

There ya go:

The first one is my conversation with Scott (was demanded...) and the second one the actual story. :)

Post here your stories about meeting Scott. The most detailed, the better.

Met him at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last August... Also met Becky.

I chose the 16th August to try for the tickets, because it was Madonna's birthday, and I felt it may be lucky somehow. Also, everything I did on that particular day had a "SCOTT" in it.... In an Internet cafe in Glasgow I was served by a SCOTT, then in a cafe in the park a SCOTT, in a shop a SCOTT, then I wound up on top of the SCOTT monument whilst waiting for the time when tickets would be announced. O, and the taxi driver was a SCOTT !! Beat this!!

I was also almost run over by a vehicle in my desperate attempt to get my paws on tix... had gone to the wrong location and had to run about !! Raced into the venue (hysterical) at around 100 miles an hour, still couldn't find Becky + Co., despite standing in the bloody location, and had to be grabbed by someone from R1 !!

The venue operated a "non sportswear policy" so.... as your's truly was in her trainers, I had to run down to Princes Street in Edinburgh, and buy a pair of shoes and tights from Topshop!! Grrrr...

Was kind of dragged across to meet him by a slightly mad lady I randomly met .... I was reluctant to actually go across (scared), but he was very welcoming to anybody and everybody there.

Found him a nice man: peaceful and sensitive, observant ...... short attention span though, I would say?! Like he could only have a conversation for so long on perhaps most subjects?!?!

A very direct stare, like he can see into your soul... Found this a bit unnerving. He also doesn't smile a lot either, which is little scary, and has a habit of turning his face, so you wind up talking to the side of his face!!

The female beside me randomly asked Scott to sign her forehead, which was a bit awkward, and Scott said it was the "weirdest thing he had ever done" !! Thanx to her 'brilliance', I managed not to have the chance to ask for an autograph, but managed to get one at a later stage in the post!!

On stage, he is a very competent, confident performer, quite different (I found) from the person in the courtyard. He does pull some sarcastic faces on stage... it's maybe meant to be self-depreciating, but doesn't look that great!!

He is also very self-aware, I think..... but the sensitivity is definitely there. The crazy lady I wound up sat with for the evening had shouted out "You look like a stripper" when he was up on stage, and you could actually see him visibly flinch.

So, all's well that ends well.

O, he also had on a black leather jacket which I liked, and wanted to steal!! ha ha - I also expected him to be taller. Nice and slim though!! (And cute). ;-)

In the photo of my friend with Scott he is doing his staring thing... It's quite funny :P

My autographed picture has the "stary thing", but oddly enough I didn't find it funny.... I actually felt he could see everything and I was thinking and feeling, and it knocked me a little sideways. *

* Being a bit of a control freak, I don't really like being knocked sideways!!

** Franzi also found the same thing about the "staring" at you !! :hahaha:

describe the stare!

I think we found it more funny because in my photo he is smiling and happy, and in my friend's he has a straight face and is just staring into the camera.

The stare is an extremely level way of looking at you!! Very, very direct - I'll see if I can upload a pic that kind of captures it.

He's got quite rounded shoulders as well, but a nice bum * Quite a big face.

* You can tell I had a good look!!

Dear Kizmok, where can I read your blog?

Have a look at the 'Kizmok's having a baby' thread. I've bunged a couple of links to her Scott encounters on there. Bienvenido btw. :)

Not so great this one, but took me quite by surprise!

Went to Cardiff this Saturday to see Aiden Grimshaw (not so into him, but my friends wanted to go and I wanted to get drunk). Queued for about half an hour and found ourselves crammed into the club downstairs paying £3.50 for pints, not amusing.

We went upstairs where it was slightly less busy later on and I see a very familiar looking jacket from behind; I believe its actually quite sad that I could tell who it was from the back of their head?

Anyways, Scott went outside for a cigarette and I followed suit obviously. Already quite drunk at this point, I basically pointed and shouted 'Scott Mills!' and started talking about UM and 'your views' from about 2 years ago, and also how I missed Flirt Divert. No picture sadly :( one of my housemates broke my camera the other week!! But still, was slightly surreal but cool, and was more fun than watching an X Factor reject despite the jabs I got from my friends :)
