I think the pilot was cooler, actually - maybe it was just because we'd all done it before, but the 'real' filming didn't seem to sparkle quite as much. Although I did come up with one ad-lib that made everyone in the studio laugh, so hopefully that'll end up in the broadcast version and not look too stupid. Tune in, some time late August/early September, to "Epic Win".
Meanwhile, I'm back to normality today - normality in the sense of working for Boots, albeit in the extremely groovy role of three days as a consultant financial analyst sandwiched between filming for two different TV shows (also tune in to the Gadget Show, some time after Epic Win, probably, unless they realise that I'm not really what you'd call a gadget person).
It's good to be back in the office, but today sort of reminded me why I left. It's finding-a-new-job time when I get back from my final groovy memory-man expedition of the month (St Louis, Friday), and I think I'll look for something radically different from accountancy/analysis. Banking, maybe. Or mountaineering.
