Charity - resistance is futile

It's that time of year again, when everything on TV in the UK, well on the BBC anyway, is given over to their Children in Need appeal whereby otherwise normal "celebrities" and presenters such as newsreaders etc make complete arses of themselves in the name of charity.

This is the one day in the year when, if I'm watching television, there's no way the TV will be tuned to any BBC channels!

I subscribe to the sentiment of the image on the right, and I make no apologies for repeating it after I posted it last year too!

Oh, by the way, if you want to donate to the BBC appeal, and you'll get no sympathy from me if you do, then you can click the link in the first sentence of this post. Just don't tell anyone you got there from my Blog!

One spinoff from not watching BBC this evening, although I don't want to suggest that I always only watch their channels, is that I'm currently watching, on Virgin, Star Trek: Voyager, and it's one of the earliest episodes featuring Seven of Nine, played by Jeri Ryan (see photo).

Apparently, I read somewhere ages ago, the costume features very little "enhancement" and it's all her own, as it were.

And very nice too!
