‘Happy Birthday! Here’s that furry cape you asked for!’

June 25, 2009

When I dropped into a conversational e-mail to a colleague that it’s my birthday next week, and that I have two days off by myself with which to celebrate it, she offered to come up with various suggestions for what I might do with the time off. Let it be noted that I’ve only ever spent a week in her company (we work in different offices), so she desn’t know me terribly well. Without posting the list itself, here are some snippets of what she suggested I do, which I do for prosperity so I can check back next week and see what I did end up doing. I will almost certainly not wear a furry cape at any point. 

Suggestion that indicates that she has me confused with Matthew McConaughey – ‘Head to the beach and go surfing’

Suggestion that confirms that she has slightly over-estimated my overall fitness levels – ‘go to the lake district or wales and climb a mountain! ‘

Most bizarre phrase used : ‘Furry cape’

Least exciting phrase used : ‘Jools Holland’

Most unsettling phrase used : ‘Something a little more gruesome!’

Most delicious way to begin a sentence : ‘On the subject of picnics…’

Things that Michael McIntyre has almost certainly said out loud to himself when he is alone, perhaps when driving*

* (All of which lack the integrity of truth, humility or the merest hint that he isn’t the smuggest prick on television.)

– “WOW, things are going really, really well. My appearances on The One Show are probably YouTube classics!”

– “That joke probably isn’t funny, but if I laugh at it and put on a regional accent – who knows?”

– “How many times have I said I look like a fat Chinaman when I smile? About a hundred or so? Maybe there’s more mileage in it if I cover it up with the sound of my own laughter.”

– “Simply put, I am a comedy phenomenon.”

– “HAHAHAHAHA…. I can’t believe it! I’ve done it AGAIN! Well done, me!”

– “I don’t think there will ever come a time when people won’t find me hilarious. This is inconceivable to me. Surely not?”

– “Could I be the man to revive ‘airplane peanuts’?”

– “Being Michael McIntyre is joyous.”
