Have just returned from driving MWNN into London for his Founder's…

Have just returned from driving MWNN into London for his Founder's Day address marking the 400th anniversary of the death of Queen Elizabeth I MWNN was quite the philistine before he became Headmaster of Queen Elizabeth's School, Barnet. Finding himself presiding over a school that was over 400 years' old and having in his possession the original copy of the school's charter, signed by Elizabeth herself, has quite cured him of his heathen views on the value of history.

As I drove back, I was amazed by how beautiful the green belt around London was looking in the morning sunshine. The roads were empty, by UK standards, and I reflected once again at how priviledged I am to live in this part of the country and, despite all the gripes about how expensive, crowded, and wet England is, I love it!

On a more mundane note, I have just watched the penultimate episode of BtVS (a big thank you to willowfae for taping the final episode and forwarding the CDs from catsyj - they arrived safely yesterday.)

Was I mistaken, yesterday, willowfae? Did Sky1 viewers vote Angel as their favourite Buffy guy? And did Giles come in as runner-up? Waaah, where's the blond Champion then? Perhaps he'll be on tonight's episode featuring 'Buffy's Buddies'?

ETA just had it all explained to me - yes, SKY1 viewers voted for Angel in 'Amends' as their favourite Buffy Boy and their favourite episode. But no Giles was not the tunner-up (apparently they're airingtwo different things at the moment; straight-forward re-runs; favourite Buffy's Buddies. Spike was runner-up and Smashed will air tonight. (not my favourite episode I have to say, but a girl will watch whatever Spikey goodness she is offered at the moment!)

Well I voted for Giles!

I knew Angel's episode was the winner - but missed the runner up one. And yes, they are currently rerunning and have been from season 1.

The next vote is for girls and I voted for Willow cos the episode they will show is Tabula Rasa which is one of my faves.

You missed Smashed? . . . Speechless here.
No, you didn't vote for the dusty librarian did you? . . never would have guessed. (ducks the flying missile sent my way)
I would have voted for Willow anyway, though one of my fav. episodes is the one where Spike tries to bite her after escaping the Initiative - they're both brilliant in that ep. Having said all that, I don't have a sky dish, so can't vote. (though we're seriously thinking of chucking cable with ntl and going for the special Sky offer.)
