Update on the TV viewing choice of Sunday night.
If only a bare-chested Mr Darcy could play whiff whaff at Olympic level.
And if only a b... Elizabeth ...
(All in the interests of equal rights.)

Shutup and watch the B Volley Ball, Sedge ;)
Then again, it may well be a way to spice up the sport. "Squash" tried the same thing a while ago, didn't it?. But then, "squash" is well named for such experiments...

Whiff whaff with lashings of bennetian bustle for me.

I recall Shakepseare playing at Wimbledon,
and I think that 'Round the (Regency House) Table' could possibly be an Exhibition sport at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Marvellous Melbourne.
Alternatively at least one of the endless dance sequences in P&P XXVIII could certainly be replaced with a round of Whiff Whaff, without the whole suffering too greatly. imho.

If yer like a bit of historical cheesecake, check out Hillary Swank in "The Affair Of The Necklace." Sexiest sneer since Elvis.
Kit Walken's not bad either as Caligostro if yer that way inclined.
Unfortunately, despite Swank, Walken and Pryce's game efforts, the flick itself is more paste than diamond.

Richard Curtis was onto it with the second of his studies of cold-climate love and mating habits, "Four Weddings, A Funeral and Several Ho-hum Fcuks."
"Love is like Ping Pong, except with smaller balls."

May check out Kit in historical kit, but meanwhile
that's gotta be the Ping Pong QOTD.
Yep - no dots about it, mcb.
Tenth time round, he's still looking good.

I'm disappointed, B.

Scary thing is, wen -
I have the whole series taped. (natch)
And I still wait for next week's episode. In Anticipation.
It's that old thrill of the serial format.
