Where’s Stephen Fry when you need him?
We really needed Stephen Fry or one of his QI Elves to plug the pretty large gaps in our knowledge. However I am strangely pleased that I scored only 1 point in the TV Themes round of last night's SLA Winter Warmer Quiz. The annual event run by the fabulous "Tony" of AskTony Quiz Nights saw two Sue Hill Recruitment teams (The Sue Hill Billies and Cute 2 Recruit) battle against 14 other teams of information professionals. As is now traditional, the Sue Hill Billies fought valiantly to the end and came in last. We're very proud that Cute 2 Recruit (comprising the newest SHR team members and a colleague from The British Library) landed further up the table in a very respectable 6th place.
It's always a great night out, a chance to catch up with friends and colleagues and to stave off the January Blues (of which there are many this year!). My favourite round was "Next Lines" where you had to guess the next line of a song. There was much giggling and humming, culminating in a sing along of songs such as "When I'm 64", "Valerie" and "Let's Go Fly a Kite".
All together now. Let's go fly a kite, up to the highest height…
