ordered, and possibly completely irrelevant replies...)

Since I finished my big giving-up-smoking tapestry I've watched much less
TV: I can only justify ridiculous anachronistic hobby by 'doing it in
front of the telly', and only justify TV-watching by 'having it on in the
background while I sew'. (Apart from DVDs/videos and a few programmes I
really like and have to watch with fannish attention, that is.)

Love, Ika (waiting for Season 2 of the L-Word to reach England)
