I told her how old we are. In fact, I told her twice, just to make sure she'd really grasped how very ancient we are. But I guess they must need some very mature students - because I heard from Laura tonight that my husband and I have been accepted as extras on 'The Oxford Murders' for TWO DAYS!!! This will probably count as one of the most surreal things that has ever happened to me in my whole life:D

For those who don't know, they first of all said they needed a load of extras just to fill up a lecture hall. When I heard this I thought - ooh, that would be an interesting experience, and the knees wouldn't be a problem because we'd be sitting down - and best of all I'd be able to say I'd been in an Elijah Wood film - even if I didn't appear on screen. I didn't even begin to hope that he would actually be there. Then I heard that he would actually be there, with John Hurt, and we'd all be there for 11 hours!! And then we were accepted. As if this wasn't enough, they then announced they'd require a further 60 people for the following day - to be seated around Elijah. We applied. And tonight I heard that we'd been accepted. I'm having a bit of trouble believing this is happening - in two weeks time!!!

::grabbing you and twirling you dizzy::

YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!

Congratulations!

I hope you know we expect DETAILS!! ((well, as much as you can say because, after all, they often make you sign all sorts of evil contracts with non-disclosure clauses))

Everything is spinning round - and not just because of your twirling!! I can't believe this is happening. I will let you know every detail that the evil contracts allow:)

I'm in London, on leave, and will hopefully be there on 14th (I'm there Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday). Do you think it'd be worth my applying to be an extra, or is it too late? Do you have a contact? If they want mature, lol, I can do mature... :)

Well, Laura is in the process of sending out attendance sheets, but nothing ventured, nothing gained - this is her email:

extras_laura_melcion@hotmail.co.uk

If they want mature, lol, I can do mature..

But not as mature as us, lol!!

That's fantastic news, Pauline!

'- to be seated around Elijah.'

Just two weeks to wait - do you think you'll actually get any sleep in the meantime?!

I'm so pleased for you, and I'm sure you'll enjoy and savour every moment.

Love, Blossom.

Thanks Blossom - I shall have to make sure I get at least some sleep - wouldn't want to be dropping off during our 11 hour stint. This all seems quite unreal:)

Oh wow! This is amazing!!! Go you! You have to get pics of your experience! And of Elijah! How wonderful that he will be there!

Quite a few of Elijah's fans have been accepted as extras. You should form a moot!

I am so excited for you!

Oh to be in England.....!

Ooooh, well done. I suspect this lecture is attracting more than the usual number of female students, mature and otherwise, but it could be rationalised as due to the sex appeal of the distinguished professor ;)

(I'm in for both days, too)

"jealousy doesn't live here. nope. no way. damn"

Of course - I believe you!!! No I don't.

I will certainly make the most of it - but I'm sure, like all experiences involving E, it will be gone in a flash!!

OMG. I'm so happy for you! Take lots of notes, and I hope you and hubby get close-ups!

I'm trying real hard not to be ragingly envious, but I'm not succeeding very well. *sigh*

Well, not too close I hope - otherwise they might decide we belong on the cutting room floor!!
