Bridget, Your stop on. You can't do that in a day and a half ! As I said yesterday we will get the call Wednesday or Thursday, that's if selected ! What will be, will be !

Good to get to interview stage.  As we all know first impressions count so if you make boot camp how should you enter, at a jog or perhaps tempo pace could be more impressive!

I feel hope is fading......

John, A firm shake does it for me at interviews !!

Will I have to wear my hat ? That would make me stand out in a crowd !! I have a funny feeling my Wife made me throw it away before we married, something to do with her saying "Its Me or the hat, you decide" !!

Minni don't despair yet, I'll stay pessimistically optimistic till Saturday morning! 

Funny Hat, we probably need to see the hat to understand the decision making!

Minni - there's always hope, until the end of the week anyway!

So, staying positive about it, what happens at the bootcamp?!?

If it had been postal applications we could have really made them stand out.  I remember sending a request to Annie Nightingale on an album cover

I have been on Ebay and sourced another hat which is just as funny, if not funnier !! This is now my secret funny hat, the Wife must not know. I can now attend (if selected) the Boot Camp and just blend in, no one will notice me, honest !!

I suspected that running and possibly even French would be prerequisites at the Boot Camp but hadn't thought about a hat.  Outside of beanies for running I guess I have 2 hats, a straw panama but everyone has one of those, I have an old leather hat bought in Morocco too many years ago, unusual but probably not funny, actually I think I have some fancy dress ones as well, though turning up as a cowboy may not cut it.

John, you are getting the HAT thing, I would go for the very under rated straw hat as it hasn't been seen in Birmingham for over 50 years !! It was in the Terms and Conditions, those with out a suitable funny hat need not apply !

So we get an idea of who has entered, can you all please confirm below.

Many thanks

i have a hat that's too OTT for Carmen Miranda. I'll wear it to the bootcamp if i get in

funny hat - it will give you run for your money
23/11/2010 at 12:16
Jane if you get to Boot Camp you'll have to give us all a run for our money, which brings up another point, do you think bribes are worthwhile, perhaps just a small bung?
23/11/2010 at 12:20
you never know! offering a stash of Chocolate may work
23/11/2010 at 12:26
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 !
23/11/2010 at 16:03

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!!!
