Hey, it's Tegs!

Only he's a gay American now! For want of anything better to do before the rugby tonight, I watched the new American sitcom "The Class" on E4, which the Radio Times had half-heartedly recommended. Although their suggestion to "Keep an eye on this - it could be a grower" is a bit silly - a cursory internet search tells me it's already been cancelled in the US. But it does star Sean Maguire, doing an impressive American accent, and claiming to have gone to school with the other central characters, when we all know he really went to Grange Hill, as Terence "Tegs" Ratcliffe, in my year, before showing up on EastEnders as an Irish football player. The show itself had some funny moments, but not enough to justify watching the rest of the series.

Anyway, tomorrow I'm competing in the first Online Memory Challenge, organised by Simon Orton, which should be fun. Basically a mini-memory championship, all done over the internet with participants promising not to cheat. It'll be a useful bit of practice, an enjoyable experience and hopefully the start of a lot of things like that to come!

I'm sure your blog readers aren't interested in anything that involves gays.

Please reassure me you are heterosexual Zoomy.

I don't know anything about Zoomy's sexual predilections, but I do have suspicions of the sexual perversions of all males named Greg.

"The Class" doesn't last very long, anyway

Bah, comment thingy cut me off.

...although it might last longer, where you are. Where I am or was, it kept getting pre-empted. I think only half of the episodes that aired nationwide got to air wherever I was.

We respect the individual here, and seeing as Ben lives in the wrong part of England, everything TV related should be prefaced by this. (It has sound you know.)
