Any of you lot watch My Mad Fat diary on E4?
If so, and you watched the next episode on 4OD, you’ll probably understand why I feel like I’m dead inside today. It’s a good job I’m off today.
“Victoria Coren Mitchell writes a weekly column for the Observer.”a big fat liar (via kythryns)
phodilusbadiussaid: The brownies thing sheentioned in the news thingie on her website? Or have I hallucinated that?
omg, no! it’s there! I can’t remember when I stopped checking her website, probably when she disappeared for ages. You should be running this blog, not me.
The brownies, huh? Can’t say it sounds particularly interesting at this point, despite being a brownie once upon a time (the only thing I can even remember from my years going was that we always got the chance to BUY a bag of sweets at the end), but I’ll watch for VC.
Also, did the discussion about women in comedy for IWD happen?
phodilusbadius said: Or it’s this documentary thing. But I demand that she learns multitasking. (They can take double lessons.)
What documentary thing?! What have I missed?
Because she hasn’t written an observer column this week? Probably. Who does she think she is, Kate Middleton? Either that or she’s been demoted from weekly duties in which case we should start a petition.
At a Beatson Cancer Charity event.
VC won Best Social Media User at the British Poker Awards. Well done.
As Birmingham Metropolitan College, one of Britain’s largest institutes of higher education, bans Muslim women from wearing veils on the grounds of “security risk” – then changes its mind within days – we ask: what, precisely, were they imagining?
Was it a sort of Mr Toad scenario, where a villain creeps about disguised as a woman? Or that Muslim girls themselves would tuck Berettas under their veils, ready to whip out if a teacher prescribed too much geography homework?” Victoria Coren (via gordondeal)
“(…) It’s a shame that the Bank of England seems to take the comedy panel show approach to featuring women: there’s only room for one at a time. None is fine. Several could be dangerous. If you had Elizabeth Fry and Jane Austen simultaneously, like having Jo Brand and Sarah Millican, the planet might crack open and boil us all.”Victoria Coren (via gordondeal)
So the Elves have finished the panellists’ section on their website, and VC(M)’s profile is cute. They sound like they’re gushing over her. (Who wouldn’t?)Thanks, Anon!
Something new! The Agenda on itv at 10:35pm. A pretty boring show but if you need your VC fix.
