The typo of the day (or maybe it was deliberate) in our College newspaper, mentioning "the fantastic Eyes Open album by Snot Patrol"
I laughed for a long time after reading this.  Cheesy

Despite the fact that I should never have had to have an interview...

I had my interview and got the (my) job.

Yay - I can still pay the mortgage.

Congratulations. We had to do the same thing a while back to "win" another year's employment.
Not a nice process - well done for getting through it. Smiley

Watching Banzai on Dave made me smile. Not just because it's insane, but because they featured part of Clocks by Steve Hackett! "Place bets now!"  Cheesy

I'm smiling because we've decided to go out today, despite the uninviting weather - to this place:

http://www.secretnuclearbunker.com

My joy at this prospect is as much to do with getting out of the house for a few hours than it is with the place itself - though it does look interesting. Huw heard about it from some of his schoolfriends who had a grand day out, it seems. They've got those little guided-tour-in-an-mp3-player doobries that you listen to as you walk around.

A pub lunch may also be on the cards Cheesy

That's fantastic David. According to the the farmer that owns it, he has a gun and you need to be married to his daughter to get in. That must reduced the number of visitors a bit.

Something certainly kept visitor numbers low Smiley

It was the most bizarre experience, actually. Lots of interest, loads of old communications equipment to look at (they had a real kilosteam box!), and seeing the old 'Protect and Survive' videos was quite chilling. But the place is run in a rather strange way. You pay for admission at the end, in an honesty box, but they have signs all over the place saying "there are cameras, you are being watched, if you don't pay we'll get you". The only staff we saw were the guy who I assume runs it and his son who were keeping the self-service canteen running.

There's a recording studio in there, the radio kind where the BBC would have broadcast to the nation in the event of a nuclear strike. They had a waxwork BBC announcer in the booth - Huw said "oh look, Dad, he's doing the latest episode of the European Perspective". Probably playing something apocalyptic, like Magma...

I don't know if it would bear many repeat visits, but it was interesting, and only forty minutes from home.
