It's for charideee...

Today is Red Nose Day in the UK.

David wore baggy red clothes and bought some buns at school.

Karen didn't do anything specific as she is in a role where it isn't really possible.

I dressed down (my old favourite Eeyore T Shirt) and sponsored a couple of people to take part in stuff. I've also been tipping copper into a bucket for weeks now.

The first event was an inter-departmental one- a bun eating contest. The entrants had to eat as many as possible in five minutes.

The winner (with 22, a massive lead over the others) is at the far end of the table. He rushed off looking rather nauseous at the end and is reputed to have made call on the great white telephone as he was heard to be shouting for his friends Huey and Ralph.

The other event was Nick, who had agreed to have his head shaved if we sponsored him. We'd been bantering all week, as he normally has spiky hair.

Here he is complaining about how much it tickled!

I have a short video of Nick bubbling away over at YouTube, I'll post it up when it is cooked.

My head is always near shaved so they'd get little change out of me - I'd have to run naked down the street or something else which would frighten the neighbourhood.

I forgot all about red nose day - nothing like it here. The buns look rather good. Was the winner OK in the end? Nick looks in agony having his hair shaved - very brave of him! I've just linked to you in a post, btw.

Welshcakes, I don't know if the winner was OK- he was from marketing so it didn't matter...

Nick didn't suffer, although he will of course have emotional scars (and possibly some physical ones, as he never got round to telling his Wife it was going to happen!)
