An Unusual Request

E-mail sent round work today that was just a little bizzare...

"Does anyone have any interest in sheep dips?
My father in law's life time work was sheep dips and we rescued his collection of ticks from the bin man. It is an extensive collection of animal parasites, preserved in a variety of means that I could not see destroyed. They need a new home. Any ideas?"

Stupid Man On The Train

Yesterday I took the day off to attend the 11th annual Student Radio Awards, and because our sports quiz had been nominated for best comedy and entertainment I got to go for a tour around GCap offices in Leicester Square including standing in the Classic FM studio while they were on air!

The quiz didn't get a placing but nomination was better than we expected. Otherwise it was a brilliant night for RaW...
- Second in the best station category "a close second to URN (Nottingham)",
- Gold award for the techies for their studio rebuild,
- 2nd and 3rd in best interview, (one I "produced")
- 3rd to Matt Rebeiro for best newcomer,
- Jimmy and Adam were unlucky to only come second in best entertainment.

On the way home I got chatting to a guy on the train who works in lighting at a theatre. At first I was glad to have someone to talk to and listened to him rant on for a bit (showing genuine interest) but when I finally got to say where I had been (and I was gagging to talk about our 6 awards and Jo Wiley) but he immediately turned the conversation back to himself, never asking me a single question about my evening or infact about me, presuming to know it all already. It was such a frustrating conversation, so if your reading this Mr I-missed-out-on-a-really-interesting-conversation because-I-only-care-about-myself, next time you talk to someone on a train please LISTEN, just for a minute.
