08:47 pm - Paxo
Just watched University Challenge. My daughter met Jeremy Paxman the other day, with the producer of University Challenge. He talked to her about his daughter, who is studying Arabic. She asked for an autograph but all she had on her was the ticket to see True Grit. Because it was kind of small he signed it 'Paxo'. Cute, eh?

That's nice!

According to my Virgin+ box, I am three pages behind with University Challenge. Ouch. I am, however, only a couple of weeks behind with Mastermind. One day, I will catch up.

I also recommend 'Pointless' if you get the chance to see it. Not as high-brow but it's deceptively tricky I think.

Awww. :)

I bumped into him once while I was passing through Heathrow. He does seem like a nice bloke.

Did he say "Come on ! Come on !" when she couldn't find a piece of paper straightaway ?

On which subject, did you see the Victoria Coren quiz thingy the other day, in which *none* of Andrew Motion's team knew what show the Liberator was from, even after being told it was a spaceship? Just goes to show poetry's not all it's cracked up to be. VC got my vote by explaining that it was from "the excellent Blake's 7".

Has Only Connect come back? Huh, very disappointed in Andrew Motion.
