The Envelope Please…


Ladies and gentlemen, thank you so much for coming along today, I know you’ve all been anxiously waiting for the results of the prestigious ‘Suggest Something Silly For Vanessa To Do’ prize. So without further ado, I would like to announce that the winner of the life-changing Β£10 (approx US $15) Amazon Gift Card, randomly drawn from the selection of people who made silly suggestions is…Jackie P from To Breathe is to Write, congratulations Jackie! I’ll be in touch. I do hope you won’t let this new wealth change you because you’re pretty awesome just as you are.

We’ve already seen me wearing a colander on my head to count down the new year, (thanks Carrie). Which suggestion will I take up next? Winner Jackie’s suggestion was:

‘How about a question and answer video? But with a twist! Every question you answer has to be done in mime form. You can read the question, then answer in mime. Sort of an off the wall charades!’

Any ideas for questions I could answerΒ in mime?

  1. Steve Allen used to do a piece called the Answer Man. They would give him an answer and then Allen would come up with a silly question….. And I hope that answers your question. Hmmm

  12. Mime your favorite scene from a movie. Use props. You know. Lightsabers and whatnot. Mime that scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail with The Black Knight.

  15. Charades won? Oh, come on, V! Well, if that’s what you want to do, we’ll have to come up with some challenging questions. Who do you think is the worst politician running for president of the United States? What’s the most effective way to stop the hiccups? What news story of 2015 did you find the most hysterical/outlandish?

  16. I love it! How about miming an answer to, “What is the best way to survive the awful American political process?”

  17. So many terrific ideas.
    What was your favorite Halloween costume? And what inspired it?
    Or what horror movie scared you the most?


  18. Interesting read. Here’s your question- what’s your favourite song? (I’m really into music, I’m sure you can tell by now)
    Here’s hoping you’ll visit my blog too.


  19. What was your very public, embarrassing accident.


  20. Hooray for Jackie. I suggest a different kind of Q&A … on in the form of Carnac: The Magnificent by Johnny Carson many years ago.
