    I had most of that, growing up. The malt extract unusual feeding practices, the lack of parental supervision, the educational problems, anxiety disorders like you'd not believe. I'm surprised I can function. Quite what women see in me I'm not sure.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    That's brilliant, particularly love

    'Kanga may prove to be one of those exceptional single mothers who show a natural resilience — an ability, if we may say so, to bounce back. Maybe Kanga will pass her high school equivalency test, earn a university degree and maybe even get an MBA. Perhaps some day Kanga will buy the Hundred Acre Wood and develop it into a gated community of $500 000 homes. But that is not likely to happen, particularly in a social context that does not appear to value education and provides no strong female leadership.'

    how relevant is that lol (wish the bloody smileys worked)

    Right, I've worked out why I can't locate them. The quotes you show are paraphrases rather than words from the original books.

    For example,

    Now, he thought he would begin the Hunt by looking for Piglet, and asking him what they were looking for before he looked for it.

    has turned into

    It's best to know what you are looking for before you look for it

    and

    "It's your fault, Eeyore. You've never been to see any of us. You just stay here in this one corner of the Forest waiting for the others to come to you. Why don't you go to them sometimes?"

    has turned into

    You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.

    and so on. The sense does appear to be unchanged.

    "I like talking to Rabbit. He talks about sensible things. He doesn't use long, difficult words, like Owl. He uses short, easy words, like 'What about lunch?' and 'Help yourself, Pooh.'
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?

    "We'll go because it's Thursday," he said
    A good reason for going to see everybody is because it’s Thursday.

    nothing in the original turns into
    Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.

    This is exact!: she would do a Good Thing to Do without thinking about it.
    Do a good thing to do without thinking about it.

    He had had that sinking feeling before, and he knew what it meant. He was hungry.
    When you get a sinking feeling, don’t worry, it’s probably because you’re hungry.

    "But we mustn't stop now, or we shall be late." "Late for what?" "For whatever we want to be in time for," said Tigger
    Don't be late for whatever you want to be in time for.

    "haven't you been listening to what Rabbit was saying?" "I listened, but I had a small piece of fluff in my ear.
    If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.

    But wherever they go, and whatever happens to them on the way, in that enchanted place on the top of the Forest, a little boy and his Bear will always be playing
    The most important thing is, even if we’re apart, I’ll always be with you

    "How do you do Nothing?" asked Pooh, after he had wondered for a long time. "Well, it's when people call out at you just as you're going off to do it, What are you going to do, Christopher Robin, and you say, Oh, nothing, and then you go and do it."
    People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.

    Re: The Philosophy of Pooh

    Well, I've done the PowerPoint Presentation & have been rehearsing my draft script. I've had to cut it down a lot because of time constraints. I have 10 mins. The best I've managed so far is 9:45, which I think is more than adequate.

    I've also put together a little leaflet with 4 questions on it to hand out afterwards, in order to test Learning Outcomes (something I failed to do last time):

    1. Who illustrated Milne's books?
    2. What was the name of A. A. Milne's Son, for whom the books were written?
    3. What is the name of the real life location where the Hundred Acre Wood and the Pooh Sticks Bridge iare to be found?
    4. What other Core Values th at Pooh has do you feel relate to Customer Service?

    I can do them - E H Shepard? and Christopher Robin - he was a bookseller, if I remember right. And I've been to Ashdown Forest, and Pooh had an enquiring mind. He was full of curiosity. He wanted to find out.

    100% Correct. Gold Star to that boy. Although I was disappointed that only 1 in the group remembered Ashdown Forest.

    I did the presentation yesterday and although I'm bound to be biased, I seriously believe mine was the best received of the lot. There were 6 of us there. The others did Dawn French, Jimi Hendrix, Nikola Tesla, Her Dad, and Del Boy, and with the best will in the world you could sense the boredom & non-relatability. I deliberately started mine in the same vein, with the introduction that there were so many to choose from. Stephen Hawking, for his contribution to Modern Science & never say die attitude. Gareth Malone, for the way he has changed the Public Perspective on Choirs. Bill Bullen (CEO of Utilita), as the job has really made a massive impact on my life. After all, never in any job previously would I ever have dreamed of going for a position like this. And finally, my Mum. After all, whose Mum hasn't made a major influence on their lives. Then I went onto the next picture (still blank faces) Alan Alexander Milne (some signs of recognition)... Creator of... My Hero... WINNIE THE POOH. And instantly I could feel the positive reaction warming to me. I also kept a check on time. I went over the 10 mins - by 4 seconds. I felt brilliant.

    The next question, though, is if the deciding panel felt the same way. Now to see if I get to the next stage of making the interview.

    Will keep everything crossed for you, Good Luck!

    Sounds very positive, I’m betting they’ll go for it :-)

    That must be very dispiriting after all the work and thinking you put into it. Human Resources has always been low on my list of respectable people.
