One of my five New Years Challenges was to get myself on TV at some point during 2007. Well it looks like this one is in the bag already.
Gooooooders and I recently auditioned for BBC 2 quiz show ‘Sudo-Q’ and, even more recently, heard that they want us on the programme! Bonkers!! It’s hosted by noneother than the absent-minded Irish TV legend, Eammon Holmes, and is a combination of sudoku puzzles and trivia questions.
To be honest, we only applied for a bit of a chuckle, but now that we’re on the show (and have a shot at winning a few grand if we’re successful) I find my competitive mindset is now well and truly in gear. I’ve been practicing the online game for the past couple of days and am steadily improving my times with each attempt.
But really, even if we don’t win, at least we’ll get a free trip to the Big Smoke (the show pays for our trains and accommodation) out of it, and I’ll get to tick off one of my New Years Challenges already.
Watch this space for info on how we get on and for broadcast dates. Note, if we do horribly, then broadcast dates might be withheld.
