I checked my Telly Critic e-mails yesterday for the first time in... oooh, about three months, and I found one sent in November from an A-level Media Studies student who's doing a project on reality TV and thought I might like to write his thesis for him.

Obviously he didn't expect me to produce two thousand words of considered debate entirely on my own - he was kind enough to provide me with bullet points of the four main issues he'd like me to consider in my answer to the question "Are reality TV programmes designed to produce conflicts for audience gratification?".

I've probably missed the essay deadline by now, but I think my answer would have been "Yes", followed by a six-page debate on whether modern A-levels are worth the paper they're written on.

Anyhoo, today is the birthday of my second most prolific blog commenter, Mrs G of Essex. So Happy Birthday to her. I posted a card on Thursday, first class, so naturally she hasn't received that yet, but in the meantime here's a photo of her hunting for presents...

Nice hat.
I don't have permission to publish that, so expect it to be taken down within the hour.
