    My dad knew Bon Scott when they were young and did some work for his parents many years ago.
    i recently became friends with quite a famous cricketer's wife through a bit of a crisis situation we both found ourselves in. But I can't really say more!
    i didn't really think much of it all until her husband was the answer to a question at a quiz night I went to!

    And my BIL plays in the same cricket team as the doctor guy from The Offspring - no idea what his name is.

    Dan Sultan is a dreamboat!!! But I totally get where ur description of him is coming from lol! I know a few AFL footy players, some Aussie singers (Jess Mauboy more recently) n some actors also met politicians thru my work. Can't really think of anyone else?!

    A good friends hubby is cousins with a well known Olympic swimmer, although he's probably better known for his antics out of the pool, rather than in it...

    Also know a few footy players and a couple of country music singers but that's about it. My aunty is good mates with a few of the v8 supercar drivers.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if you and I had bumped shoulders at some point

    I imagine there's a very good chance of that. It's a very small world in that part of Melbourne. Paul Kelly's son also worked there years ago and we ate there often. 2 degrees of separation?

    Our house is often featured in the background of Offspring. Des that count?
