If someone else tells me that my project "is a bit like something that Dave Gorman would do", why I'll....I dunno, probably sigh and say "yes I know, lot's of people have told me that".
Anyway, I can't really insert a lengthy post here, as Ron Jeremy said on a recent film set, because I am at work and obviously it is far more important for me to be entering the names of lawyers onto a database, since I am being paid a Huh-whopping £8.00 an hour to do so.
Suffice to say that both Jimmy Carr and the Right Honourable William Hague MP, have agreed to meet me. More on a need to know basis, or rather, more once I get home this evening and have a bit of free time.
....and now, I am home, yet possibly a few pints worse for wear so forgive any spelling mistakes. So as I was saying, a letter from Kirsten that I received this morning read:
On behalf of Mr Hague, I would like to thank you for your letter of 4th July concerning the challenge you have accepted.
Mr Hague would be happy to meet you though, now that the House is in recess, I am afraid that it will not be possible to make any arrangements until the autumn. However, if you would not mind, I will make a note to contact you then in order to agree a suitable time to meet.
With kind regards......
So what can I say, fantastic. My first quote Meeting unquote that is of a direct response to a letter sent by me. I am forever in your debt the Rt Hon, and you are most certainly entitled to your summer holiday. An 80 day recess as I am led to believe from today's copy of The Sun, and following hot on the heels of this letter, an email from Katie:
Hi Jules, Jimmy (Carr) would like to help you out with your mission. If you could
turn up to Xfm next weekend at 11am we can do the photo etc..
let me know,
So today has truly been a most pleasing one. There was I lying in bed last night, tearfully casting aside my copy of Harry Potter VI after reading the harrowing final few chapters, yet not realising that all would feel so much better come the morning. Two positive replies without even having to resort to the Imperius Curse.
