Today it's another 6am start and I'm working for a sports radio station. This means I must sound like I know about the football... ha! How I would love to turn round and say "no I do not know what the offside rule is, and, frankly, I don't care either!" then blow a raspberry and run away back home to bed.
Am bored already so was surfing the web and found this job advert... alas I need to be a man to apply... and in the case of this particular job, a mature, jolly, bearded man...
"With Christmas "Just around the corner," we're trying to get things, "all wrapped up..." ok, enough cliches, this isn't an ad for a copywriter.
I'll keep this short and to the point because being Santa you're obviously quite busy checking your list (twice) at this time of year.
On Christmas Eve we need 'a santa' to talk to the Children of North Yorkshire on our "Santa Call." Remember, North Yorkshire is a lovely place and the children are all little darlings (except the one a couple of years ago who asked for a chainsaw for Christmas... don't worry, we've blacklisted him)
You'll be available for a live two hour show (10-midday) on Christmas Eve either in person in York or down an ISDN line from Lapland.
As you'd expect we pay in mince pies and carrots. "
How fun would this be? "HO HO HO!" Do I get the part.... Whattaya mean no?!
