Ok. Shameful confession ahead: at the age of 10, I dressed as Mr. Spock for Halloween. I've played online role-playing games based on Anne McCaffrey, Tolkien and Regency England. While home this weekend, I even discovered a binder full of my old Magic: The Gathering cards. (Revised Edition and Ice Age - I hear there have been like 7 more editions since I stopped playing. Ah, well.) I will never successfully pretend not to be a geek. And even so, I'm baffled by a housing development based on Bree and the Shire.

Still, it would be cool to be the security guard. "You Shall Not Pass."

I love TMS

Heard on TMS just now...

Possibly Mike Gatting?: Geoffrey [Boycott]'s grandmother could have made that catch
Henry Blofeld: Mind you, Geoffrey's grandmother is one of the finest fielders out there.
PMG: I hear she puts a few runs on as well. She's a bit of an all-rounder.

In this story about Jessica Simpson snubbing a Republican fund-raiser (and thus President Bush), it emerges that Jessica Simpson is fronting a charity whose avowed purpose is to provide free plastic surgery to people in poor countries with facial deformities. This amuses me no end - until it came to life here, I would have been entirely ready for an Onion article positing such a charity.

(For Radio 4 listeners, Jessica Simpson is an American pop singer whose fame largely stems from an MTV appearance).
