University Challenge

The other telly I watched last night was the final of University Challenge. It was very exciting, with a last minute dash to victory from Corpus Christi.

There's a nice Guardian story plus comments on Gail Trimble, the captain of the winning team, who answered the majority of questions. I am naturally Oxbridge-averse, on account of they are naturally prole-averse, but I suppose that's not her fault, and I did like her as a person. I found her endearing.

She also has a kind and sensible brother:

"Would you believe it, my brother received a Facebook message from Nuts yesterday morning saying 'can we have your sister's email address, we want her to do a tasteful shoot'," the 26-year-old told BBC Breakfast. "So of course he sent them an answer saying: 'Seriously mate, would you give your sister's contact details to Nuts?'"
