Being the person that people notice wherever you go because you are white and blonde has got to have some perks. This week I made the most of standing out from the crowd when I went to watch the UEFA cup final. The barmen know me because I think I'm the only European woman who goes in the bar. Not only did I get a seat in the packed place, but right at the front.
Unfortunately most of the spectators were supporting the Italians, so I had to get a Liverpool chant going to liven the place up a bit. I guess doing things like that might add to the fact that people often know me before I know them!
