After Emily’s dad accidentally booked too many tickets, and then Emily passed the spare tickets along to me and Sanna, and then Sanna was sadly too ill to attend, it eventually transpired that Robert and I went to see Radio 4’s The News Quiz being recorded. Hosted by Sandi Toksvig (can you not love her?) with Mark Steel (weep with joy, Saoirse, weep with pure unadulated joy) Alan Coren, Phil Jupitus, some-new-and-quite-funny-woman and the sexy Radio 4 newsreader-voice guy.
Anyway, it was great fun, with most of Mark Steel’s contributions being utterly libellous and not able to be transmitted. Got slightly worried when I spotted a bloke reading the Morning Star in the audience though, and thought the Radio 4 listenership was about to get revolutionary. Oh and a mobile went off in the audience – to which the team responded by shining a spotlight on the guilty woman. Haha! Props to Emily for getting the tickets for us.
They also teased vegetarians in a rather amusing fashion sorry, Emily \ Sanna \ Joshua \ everybody else.
In other news: I have now applied for my student loans! Which is exciting, especially if I end up dying very young and therefore not paying any of them back. (Accidents happen…)
