* I was once invited to have dinner in a flat at the top of the "Number 96" building in Woollahra. (ie. Vera's flat.) On the way out, I couldn't help myself; I mimed racing down the stairs, pretending to pound on the doors of all the other flats to warn, "Bomb in the building! Everybody out! Bomb in the building! Everybody out!"
* the Arncliffe house where I grew up, for my first thirteen years, used to be the family home of stage comedienne Sadie Gale, wife of the infamous Roy "Mo" Rene.
* my paternal grandmother and I once met a real live dragon - and no one else in the family believed us.
* I was once a catwalk model in a 1987 charity fundraiser for the annual "Queen of Bankstown Quest". The first thing people ask if I mention it is, "So, did you win?"
