Well things have been delayed :( Miranda Heart is coming in for tour of our building, as we work in the biggest telecommunications call centre in the UK it's quite popular for charity events.

i Volunteered last minute so have no time to shave.

Bricking it means I'm ****ting myself.

Miranda Hart is a comedian. The BBC One Show.. If I'm correct is on every night at 6PM on BBC One.

Ahh man I'm devastated! I'm no longer doing it now. It was suppose to be me and Toby (a crazy manager) doing it... but they only had time to do one person so Toby did it. I didn't even get to see him do it neither :( I'll watch it tonight!

Dang. I would have liked to see that. Oh, sweet, sweet schadenfreude!

I think it was "The 40-year-old Virgin" in which Steve Carrell got his chest waxed for real for the movie, so all the reaction footage was genuine. Poor guy started off awfully hairy. . .

oh it's some tv show/charity thing. i thought you were talking about general comic relief.

i can only be comic relief in some ways primarily with self-deprecating humor or sometimes normal humor. my taste in dark humor doesnt go over as well as the others most of the time since not many people i know like dark humor

Oh I'm sorry..how disappointing. :(

Well, at least you had a lucky escape from waxing. It's really very, very painful!! Give it a try when you feel like having a good cry ;)

Yes, Comic Relief is a UK based charity that tries mainly to fight poverty all around the world. I think, it's called comic relief, because a lot of their events are comedy based or good old stand-up comedy. I interpret it as "relief from poverty using comedy" :)

Eh, waxing doesn't really hurt after the first time, IMO. Then again, I don't have any problems with eyebrow threading, either. Or dental work.
