Hola. Hope you are well.
I was in Manchester over the weekend hosting a show, before you get too excited, I wasn’t hosting the X Factor final, nor the Xtra Factor(or any spin-off of the X Factor). I was in fact hosting ‘This Is Your Life’, or a loose version of said prog as part of the entertainment for an 80th birthday party, (I’m available for weddings, birthdays and bar mitzvahs). It wasn’t just any 80th birthday party it was ‘Her With One Permanent Job’s’ granddad’s party.
I’d even done some research for my role. I say research, I looked on Wikipedia and found out things that happened in the year he was born, the most popular boy’s name in that year compared to today. I also looked up famous people who share the same birthday as him, only to find out his birthday wasn’t the day of the party but was actually the next day,whoops. Overall the section went well, and should anyone from ITV be reading this and be thinking of re-commissioning ‘This Is Your Life’ bare me in mind.
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that ‘HWOPJ’ was in Kenya with work, she’s back now and there’s already talk of another jolly (I mean work trip) this time to the USA. In my job as a TA, I ended up annoying a teacher by photocopying. Apparently she couldn’t concentrate on her marking whilst the photocopier was photocopying. I don’t feel this was my fault, I didn’t make the photocopier, nor did I put it in that department’s office. I can’t help thinking ‘HWOPJ’s’ job is more exciting than mine. (feel free to let me know if your partner’s job is more exciting than yours, you can contact me via the comments button)
And Finally… Other than annoying teachers I had an embarrassing moment at school. As I was leaving a lesson, the teacher asked me if the Biology exam paper on the floor was mine. I said “No” but then had a look at it and written on the front was Mark Scheme, so I said “It’s Mark Scheme’s” but pronounced it ‘Mark Scheem’. The teacher then said, “No it’s Mark Scheme”. So I said, “Do you know him?”. She then said, “No it’s the mark scheme”. Only then did the penny drop, that it was just the mark scheme and not a person called Mark Scheme. Feel free to contact me if you are call Mark Scheme, it would make me feel a little less stupid, if it is someone’s name.
Til next week, stay safe!
