Jane, I look forward to seeing your hat, can we have picks before B-Camp ?
23/11/2010 at 12:44
Jane perhaps thats why Birmingham was chosen instead of London, time to visit Cadbury World before the running starts, just need to find out how many will be in the assessment team so I don't run out of chocolate.  Be a bugger to fail all for the sake of one mars bar!

That’s what they mean by 'reading with understanding': seeing "midday" a moon popped up in my head and I was convinced we had time till midnight. ehhhh my heart stopped for those few seconds while checking the sending time: 11.09am.  Alice,I know you're extremely busy trying to find my application to add it to the "selected" pile but could you tell us how many applications you've received? Thanks

I am expecting a delivery from Hotel Chocolat any day

FH - I don't do hats but I do have a nice line in tutus:

USB, Great TUTU, but no funny hat, if you get through I will be expecting a suitable HAT/TUTU COMBO !

It must soon, my phone is charged and ready... but alas no calls... me sad !

The suspense is killing me.......   and now I will need to find a funny hat which shouln't be that difficult here at the funny farm!

At least if we don't find out until Friday, we won't have to wait as long until the 4th December!!!

Do you know I think I'll fit a run in tonight, just in case it comes up in conversation at Birmingham next week.

In a hat of course

 <twiddles thumbs patiently>  I'd offer Twiglets and wine round but of course I am a serious athlete who would never eat unhealthy food (thats just in case the Asics nutrition team are reading). 

Then again, did someone already mention chocolate???  In that case, who wants white wine and who wants red?

We've worked out that chocolate mentions are safe, thats why the Boot camp is in Birmingham, Bourneville, Cadbury's World and all that stuff.  But wine, I don't think its been explored on this thread yet.  I have heard red can be good for you so will perhaps read a label or two to check whats in it!
23/11/2010 at 17:20

I think this might be allowed then

You are way ahead of the game, if you can find it in a French version you must be in!
23/11/2010 at 17:30

Ho hum.  No phone call here.  They said we'd hear by the 24th, which is tomorrow, so I'm going to start reading the P&D book again tonight and plan my own schedule..

23/11/2010 at 17:36

Minni don't give up, it said Friday 24th so may not be tomorrow anyway.

There is still hope, just be patient!

23/11/2010 at 19:50
No news is good news right ? Perhaps it will be tomorrow !
23/11/2010 at 21:06

I've been keeping away from this thread 'cause it just seemed like tempting fate to let my self start thinking it's possible. Couldn't hold out any longer though.

And found out today I'll be in meetings most of tomorrow. Not sure how the boss will take me running out the room when the call comes in.......

<says he who has run out of things to cross>

24/11/2010 at 07:18

I hope my hat with ears would be ok, should the call come.

The suspense is killing me, and trying to live a normal life with everything crossed since Friday is interesting !

Life will go on if you don't get chosen, and I'm sure there will be counselling available.

Hang in there.

24/11/2010 at 08:06
I always like to see what the chatter is overnight, not too much different but somebody else has broken cover!  Phonecalls today or Friday?  Mobile sat waiting on my desk, very quiet isn't it!
24/11/2010 at 09:27

oh bugger.........Just when i'd resigned myself to having been put in the "No, not you" pile of applications as I hadn't had the call, I come across you lot and now realise I may have been too hasty in writing myself off???

So, joining you here in limbo..........ring phone ring (please)

I took friday 24th to mean friday 26th

anyway, if any of the folk who have been posting regularly on this thread get picked they'll suddenly become conspicuous by their absence after friday, if the boot camp list is secret
