I totally adore this man, and have been one of his many millions of fans ever since I first snuck a copy of 'The Liar' from my Dad's bookshelf at 14 and was initiated into really good adult literature. Since then my personal favourites have been appearances on 'Just a Minute' and 'I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue', not to mention all his other books and films, and of course QI.
After waiting for a mere hour and half on Milsom Street outside the Bath branch of Waterstones with Mr HH, we had a whole two minutes of conversation while he signed our book - perhaps the most thrilling 2 minutes of my life! I still feel like jelly, the adrenaline is pumping, of all the people I would have liked to have met, he is at the very top. Huzzay!
