- My friend Samuel – billed as ‘super geek Sam’ on Total Wipeout (episode 5), an obstacle course in Argentina. Contrary to all expectation (his own and those who know him) he finds himself in the final three (from 20).
- Frost/Nixon: now need to find out how much really happened. Like the late night phone call? I was once in a lift with David Frost; I wish I’d seen this film at that point of time. I could have made some quip – of the kind I’d think really original and he’d think not at all. Like the ‘Hello, Good Evening, Welcome’ that he never actually said. Or the Nixon fornication line. Or not.
- Last week’s MediaGuardian quiz – I didn’t do very well this week. V. TV focussed. Must try harder.
- Cow in the snow. Luckily he’s not real.
