Here’s how it went down:
So… that was that, at least under ordinary circumstances. All the stars had gone into the cinema and all I had to do was head off to pick up my laptop and head home. However…..
So then I got back to the apartment and looked online and realised that….. erm…. I seemed to have not photographed Tim Blake Nelson : THE TITULAR BUSTER SCRUGGS IN THE BALLAD OF BUSTER SCRUGGS. I thought I’d photographed him (refer further above) but I learned that I hadn’t. So I hastily searched through the photographs I’d taken to see if he might have accidentally snuck in…. and…

Until Next Time!?
