Um, I suppose I should have something about the arts now. Or culture. Um. Patsington and I watched Primeval tonight and it was ridiculously silly but quite entertaining. And then we watched Ant and Dec's quiz show Poker Face and to our immense surprise it was actually really good! I thought (when I thought about it at all, which was for a split second when I looked at the telly schedule on Saturdays, noticed it was on, and instantly dismissed any thought of watching ITV that night) that it was actually about poker, but actually it is all about keeping a poker face so the other contestants would overestimate your mad quiz skillz and fold themselves out of the game rather than compete with your genius self and lose all the cash. All the contestants were trying to bluff their way through and pretend they weren't nervous, and they all lied away like anything about the reasons why they knew the answers to really tough questions. It was hugely entertaining.
Oh dear, that's still not very cultural, is it? I watched three House of Eliott episodes this afternoon, but I don't think that counts. Um, I'm still reading Adam Gopnik's Through the Children's Gate, which is quite respectable (although, I really like him, but he really does live in a posh literary New York bubble, doesn't he?). And this afternoon I was listening to Michael Nyman's brilliant Draftsman's Contract soundtrack, but I was reading a Chalet School book at the same time, which sort of cancels it out. Oh God, I don't deserve the nomination at all! But vote for me anyway.
