“ The Assistant ”
I'm saying that with such enthusiasm because this week has been a bit of a painful one - I have tried to cut down on/give up coffee. Worst decision EVER. I have cracked every single day except today (so far) and am nursing a banging headache for my trouble!
To cheer me up Nick Levine furnished me with an interview transcription for an achingly cool new US popstar containing the following unexpected exchange:
Popstar: "Jedward are so nice"
Nick: "They love prawns"
Popstar "Prawns? Have you interviewed them? Did they have prawns?"
Nick: "They had a bowl of cold prawns."
Would it be weird to say that made my day?
In more magical news Paul Millar and Tom Mansell journeyed forth to meet up with Stephen Mulhern for a spot of interviewing and illusioning! Anyone who knows me will know that I have a long running suspicion of magicians which started in childhood with Paul Daniels' television show and extends to the present day with David Blaine et al. Obviously I am not the target audience for the following clip of magic and wonderment but I sincerely hope you lot are!
P.S. Two minutes after posting this a colleague walked past with a cup of gloriously strong coffee. I officially give up giving up. To the cafetiere! *runs*
