Unfortunately, nothing too funny to report today. I've spent some time informing our west-coast agencies know how many free Wicked Campers days they've received so far. We're still offering all our agencies the following incentive
"For every 7 days of Wicked Camper hire you book, receive 1 day of Wicked Camper hire anywhere in the world!" Such an exciting incentive. I've had a few agents write back some nice feedback:
"Thanks i might use it soon thinking of a road trip yay! Would it be available for the east coast?"
"Can we use this whenever? Or does it expire? How exciting- I plan to travel the world with Wicked ;-) literally :-) So we will keep booking and keep saving hehehe. 32 Days- only 333days to save for hahaha".
Today being a Tuesday has been full of hope, but little has flourished today...
- I was looking forward to receiving the RedFM jingle today (Red FM are writing up a jingle for our radio advertising), however it’s not going to be ready till Thursday. The guy that wrote the jingle sang it himself and it apparently sounds like a cool punk song - ‘Sex Pistols’ mated with 'Arctic Monkeys'. Cannot wait to hear it!
- Melissa Doyle from Channel 7's Sunrise replied to our quote request and said "You guys seem to have this covered pretty well. Not sure my fave quote would be of value! Thanks for asking though."
- No one has moonwalked through our depot walls dressed up as Michael Jackson. Truly devastating. Maybe tomorrow? Here's hope!
- On a lovely note, Surfin Steve uploaded his latest clip surfin' on Moreton Island. There's also some nudity and some great Wicked sticker product placement in the video. You can view it here.
This Tuesday jogged my memory of a hilarious email forward I received a while ago (though my day has been pretty good and I'm fortunate to be in a job where I look forward to work each day).

After running a thousand errands, working hours of overtime, and beingstuck in seemingly endless gridlock traffic commuting to and from theirjobs, millions of Australians were disheartened to learn that it was, infact, only Tuesday.
"Tuesday?" Canberra resident Doris Wagner said. "How in the hell is it still Tuesday?"
Tuesday's arrival stunned a nation still recovering from the nightmarishslog that was Monday, leaving some to wonder if the week was ever going to end, and others to ask what was taking Saturday so damn long.
"Ugh," said Wagner, echoing a national sense of frustration over it not even being Wednesday at the very least. According to suddenly depressed sources, the feeling that this week may in fact last forever was further compounded by the thought of all thework left to be done tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, and, if Australians make it that far, possibly even Friday, for goodness sake.
"Not only do Australians have most of Tuesday morning to contend with,but all of Tuesday afternoon and then Tuesday night," National Labor Relations Board spokesman David Prynn said. "If our calculations are correct, there is a chance we are in effect closer to last weekend than the one coming up."
Added Prynn: "F**k."
Reports that this all has to be some kind of sick joke could not beconfirmed as of press time. Isolated attempts to make the day go faster, such as glancing at watchesor clocks every other minute, compulsively checking e-mail, hiding inthe office bathroom, fidgeting, or reading a boring magazine whilesitting in the waiting room, have also proven unsuccessful, sources report.
Labor Secretary Elaine Chao released a statement addressing widespread speculation that it might as well be Monday for all anyone cares."We understand this day has been tough on many of you, what with meetings mercilessly dragging on and an entire stack of files still left to organise," Chao's statement read in part. "Yet we urge Australians to show patience. The midweek hump is just around the corner, and we have strong reason to believe that Saturday will be here before you know it."
"Go about your lives as best you can," the statement continued. "Do not,we repeat, do not take a sick day, as it'll make the rest of the week that much harder to endure."
