|03:00 pm - Monday is quiz day|
Monday I generally work from home anyway, and I close my work day with an orgy of TV quiz watching. I am planning today to watch Pointless, Eggheads, University Challenge and Only Connect. My daughter is here of course, and when I told her my plans she said 'Awesome'. I said I didn't think Pointless was in the scope of phenomena which could be described as awesome, but she said it definitely is. I think Alexander Armstrong is an hilarious host. Well, all of them really except Jeremy Paxman are kind of amateurish and uncomfortable, and that's a lot of the fun of it.
PS My plumber Henryk has just given me the same ear-wigging I get from all Europeans about how rubbish English houses are when it gets cold. Apparently the risk of a burst is low, but the pipes will take half a day to warm slowly through before we get any water. Blimey.
