Finally getting used to my rigid sleep cycle, I wake up bright and early at 7.20 moments before my alarm. I manage the trains like a pro, and arrive at the office right on time with minutes to spare. My final day consist of researching for gluten-free brands (of which I am now an expert), seasonal foods for September (the month of lobster, venison and beetroot), and writing another two or three articles (I've lost count). The team meeting this morning discusses our page spreads, and filling in all the blank pages with appropriate adverts, and corresponding articles.
As a thank you for my hard work, Jessie hands me a huge bouquet of flowers, something I am so delighted with. It's not until I've made it onto the tube that I realise that maybe they're not the most practical of gifts to mission two tube lines and an OG-train with, but I am very grateful for their thought!
The final Set List show is a triumph, with Roisin Conaty, Frank Skinner, Richard Herring, Marcel Lucontand TJ Miller all performing. I'd actually researched Marcel prior to the show, and discovered him to be quite a hilarious dry-humoured non-french-but-very-convincing frenchman. Look him up; he's very good. But, my absolute favourite BY MILES is definitely TJ Miller. He was so unbelieveably talented at getting the most obsure topic and making it a hoot. Topics this evening included Sesame street crime, coma VAT, prostitution voucher, overescapegoating, 'safe falling out of a window' syndrome, and neurotic heart surgeon. It was a fantastic ending to a fantastic week (with exception to the exclusive screening of a waterfall, and Rosé so sweet it was like straight Ribena juice).
With the wise decision of leaving the flowers with Jen in SW, I take the train back home, bags bulging, and with an extra pair of shoes and trousers than when I arrived. (Couldn't resist a bit of shopping!)
