My teeny crush may be growing. He doesn't like football either.

Best joke of the night, though, came from Milton Jones, explaining that Prince Charles always approaches England via the English Channel and not the Bristol Channel, because he likes to pass the Duchy on the left hand side.

1. Bill Dare is Peter Jones's son. I still miss Peter Jones on Just a Minute.

2. When you're putting an LJ username in via html, you don't need quotation marks around the name. (HT: [ profile] wendelah1. Oh dear, force of habit is strong. I just typed them in for her name.)

3. Some stuff about author, reader, intentionality and Brevard Childs's canonical approach. Not as much as I should have done.

4. That it doesn't always snow in Scotland. We still haven't had anything worth mentioning up here.

5. Oh. That seems to be it.

Pip Archer is fifteen years old.

And has a boyfriend.

(Even if he is in the Young Farmers.)

I'm listening to the Archers for the first time in a while. I feel sick listening to Owen and Jamie - this can't end well. That man defines creepy.

I have Radio 4 playing live on my computer at the moment. I have missed the shipping forecast so much. I have never needed to know where any of these mysterious sounding places are, nor what the code is by which the forecast is described. I just love the soothing rhythm of the announcements:

Dogger, southeast veering southwest 4 or 5, occasionally 6 later. Thundery showers. Moderate or good, occasionally poor.
North Utsire, South Utsire, Northeast 3 or 4. Occasional rain. Moderate or poor.
Rockall, Malin, Hebrides. Southwest gale 8 to storm 10, veering west, severe gale 9 to violent storm 11. Rain, then squally showers. Poor, becoming moderate.
Biscay, Trafalgar, Finisterre, North 7 to severe gale 9. Heavy snow showers. Good, becoming poor in showers. Moderate.

Magical. Just in case there is any confusion, these are not the real forecasts for tonight. I would hate to be the cause of any ships setting sail with false information.

And now, God Save The Queen. I think I might stand up.
