    Forget those new fins...

    Post  Surf Empty on Wed Jan 25, 2012 6:57 am

    ...and add to my eternal embarassment.

    I have last night set up a "just giving" page for donations to Children's Hospice South-West for just this week. My wife, Clare is a Zumba instructor and had been trying to persuade me to take her on at the Wii Zumba game. As a joke (I don't usually do this more than once a year), I sneaked upstairs and dressed in her Zumba gear to surprise her and make the kids laugh whilst I played. Of course, my son (Mac) took a photo. Clare immediately posted this to my facebook page - cue 48 hours of ribbing from all and sundry. I have been called Kenny Everett, the man from Rentaghost and Mr YMCA amongst others things...

    It get's worse - there is a video.

    I had thought that my son was taking funny pictures but it turns out he videoed the whole, excruciating 4 minutes of my Zumba routine playing the Wii, dressed in my wife's gym gear (with a flower in my hair). Of course, Clare has spent the last 48 hours trying to find ways to share the video with our friends and family.

    So I had an idea - let her youtube the video if I can get those who will benefit at my expense to donate to a charity close to my heart - Children's Hospice South West. My generous friends and family have already exceeded set targets (in less than 24hrs) and raised more than £250 so now I'm getting greedy and setting new ones.

    Anything you might be able to donate to this wonderful charity would be appreciated and make my acute embarassment - and believe me this video is embarassing - more worthwhile.

    Thanks all!

    I'm sticking to the original friday evening plan to get more money in (and book a flight out of the country).

    It's excruciating(ly camp)

    Cheers Matt.

    Great, so far I've been called "Kenny Everett", "the bloke from rentaghost", "any member of the village people" and now "Mr Baxter from Grange hill".

    I'm going to have to re-adjust my self-image.
