Oooh, R1 offering a chance to escape it all

Just so you know: this page was imported from my old blog. Some pages were rather mangled in the process; my apologies if things don't quite look right.

(Off-topic? You betcha...) Radio 1 are offering a few lucky folks the chance to escape the drudgery of day-to-day life and go on a kinda working holiday thing with them for a day or two to report back on what happens.

Choices include Newquay (surfer fun - cooool), Reading/Leeds (rockers - sweaty!), Global Gathering (hell yeah!), Wales (why?), Mallorca (aren't there about 30 different ways of spelling that?), and Ibiza (Oh. Hell. Yeah!).

So hands up who's not going to choose Ibiza? Now, put your hands down if you don't have a passport. Uh huh. Thought so - everybody's going to want to go to Ibiza, and who could blame 'em?!

Naturally, purely out of a spirit of noseyness, I've sent in a very random application. Since I reckon my odds of winning are hovering somewhere around the same odds as winning the lottery without buying a ticket, I reckon plan B's going to have to happen (that's the one where I go to Ibiza at the start of next season with a box of records, not the one involving three tonnes of sand, a bucket and spade, a lilo, and Portsmouth high street...).

I guess I really ought to get on with some work ... ;o)

(Small print thingy: neither, Portsmouth SU or myself are endorsing this competition, or Radio 1, or the BBC, or anything at all whatsoever, but that's not to say I don't think it's a rather cool competition though, so why not give it a go? Can't speak for my bosses or anyone else who works here of course...)
