Shiny balls and a huge sack...

It cannot have escaped your notice that Christmas is fast approaching. It certainly hasn't escaped the attention of one loyal TWL viewer, as a simply genius idea dropped down the chimney of our inbox this afternoon:

"Dear TWL. Why don't you have a Christmas party?"

Of course we should! So we're going to.

In true cloak-and-dagger, secret-squirrel, Daniel Craig-inspired covertness, joining us in the festivities will be no simple matter. If you'd like to come (and to give us some idea of whether we'll need a small booth at the Crown and Two or start negotiations with the London Arena) you need to drop us an email: theworldsleading@yahoo.co.uk. As and when we firm up any of the details, we'll let you know. We've already created a new folder called "Christmas Party People."

Oh, and due to the fact that we're not Stephen Waddington, we'd welcome any proposals for, um, "refreshment sponsorship" or you'll be buying your own drinks. Suitable subsequent endorsement will ensue.

Party on!

I'm in. Should be fun. To make the party go with a bang, I think you should encourage someone to dress up as Father Christmas. In the interests of authenticity and credibility, I suppose this person should really be a guy. Any ideas?

Great stuff James...look forward to seeing you there. Response has already been enthusiastic.

Like the Santa idea...a guy, you say? I guess it'd be someone from the industry...a PR guy? Do you know any PR guys? Preferably a jolly one, ruddy cheeks, likes his mince pies.

Anyone?

Ha ha ha. Stick Stevie Earl and I down for £100 on the bar tab. How about raffle prize as well? I'm sure I could dig something up from my bottom draw.

Chris Green would fit the suit.

Well that rules Wadders out - he can't even get the lines right. It's 'Ho ho ho' Stephen, not 'Ha ha ha.' Back to the drawing board. It needs to be someone with a high profile. Drew - do you think Chris Lewis might be up for it?

James look at you the little fundraiser! I'll mention it :-)

james warren said...

Drew, I'm not fundraising - I'm fun-raising.

Although if TWL manages to raise more than £2K to go behind the bar, I'll dress up as Father Christmas myself. TWL - how much has been pledged so far?

We're still, ummm, in negotiations with our principle sponsor...but with that sort of incentive, I'm pretty sure we'll make it through the £2k barrier...

Make that 'principal' please. And my name is not even Tim Dyson....or Guy 'Goma'....

Should I have a Christmas party too?

Bunny! Good to hear from you.

Why don't you just come to ours...? You can do next year's.

Spin Bunny said...

I may have been hiding underground for a while, but perhaps it's time for me to surface from the warren and sniff the stench of PR types again? Depends whether you lightweight bloggers could cope.

Maybe I'll just stay in and wash my fur. If I do turn up, I'll be the miserable bastard with the big fxxxing ears.

Talking to yourself TWL? Not a good sign...
