The assignment dance.


I was given a new assignment yesterday. It's a feature, 800 words on spec but what makes it interesting is that it is for a major newspaper. A proper one, one that people have heard of and possibly even read.

I was so thrilled when I got the call (and yet baffled how the chap got my mobile number) that I danced around the room for about ten minutes. After the dancing had finished I celebrated with a cup of Earl Gray.

Now I have to write it, and I can't think of anything interesting to say. Maybe a bit more coffee will help. Argh.

Nice one old chap, you mentioned this the other evening did you not?

So what's it about then?

Louche said...

Clair - That's a jolly nice whistle you have there.

Piqued - yes that one.

Gorilla - It's sort of about relationships.

Ooh good for you! Is this paper available online by any chance?

When i get any great news, i usuaully like to wiggle my ass from side to side a la the twist as my victory dance

What's yours like? :P

Louche said...

Sabrina - it's close to the dance you do while eating chocolate, but you move your arms more. I would imagine the dance for getting Ang Pau would be quite like it.

A Snoopydance sort of thing, then?

Man, I <i>gotta</i> see that combined with a pith helmet... Louche, please start vlogging soon.

Hello html breakdown there. Then again, my Mac keeps flipping into the Greek keyboard schema. So the problem is here, I suspect...

Louche said...

Amanda - Interesting idea, maybe I could do a website where people have to realise why I'm dancing.

Do you think you could tell the difference between the chocolate dance and the I need the loo dance?

Your new site could be like Where the Hell is Matt, just with more nuance! And less white sports socks... Always a good thing.
