New Years Eve Eve

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

It’s the penultimate day of the year. I can’t believe 2013 is nearly over.

We wanted to know what your memorable moments of 2013 have been. Personally my most memorable moment has to be when I went to audition for the new Star Wars film in Manchester. I suppose it could also be classed as my most humiliating moment as well. If you hadn’t heard, I decided to go to an open audition and showcase my talents, hoping that in years to come I could tell the grandkids about the time I was a famous movie star and starred in one of the greatest films ever made. Unfortunately it didn’t turn out as well as expected. Basically I travelled all the way to Manchester at daft o’clock in the morning, queued for 3 hours and then got asked to kindly leave the queue when I realised I didn’t have any headshots..........At least I tried. Although it would seem you lot had more charming memorable moments than me; from weddings and births to Sunderland beating the scum, it was interesting to read what you enjoyed most.

If you didn’t know, I love reading. I got Ron Burgundy’s autobiography for Christmas and it’s quite possibly the best autobiography you’ll ever read. There’s at least one laugh out loud moment on every page. There’s a book out today full of delightful dotty facts that I’d really love to have; “1,339 QI Questions to make your jaw drop”. It’s full of true facts taken from the TV programme QI. I’ve managed to get a hold of some quotes and if like me you like to have a list of useless facts on hand for a conversation starter then get a hold of these; “A raw carrot is still alive when you eat it”, “An ostrich could run the London marathon in 45 minutes”, and “A tiger’s tongue is so rough that if it licked your hand it would draw blood”. If that doesn’t impress, then I don’t know what will.

Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for the last Breakfast show of 2013. It’s bound to be a New Year bonanza........well, hopefully!!
