ISIHAC after work last night, with me mum and dad, Alex and Nuala, CJ and Fran, Lara and Seth, Stuart, Tef, Matthew, Martin Lyndon, Gus, and about 600 or so other people also in attendance. And very good it was too. The guest was Ross Noble, who made his mark early on. The panellists were making jokes about how old and decrepit they all were (Barry started it, of course) and Tim remarked that a woman had recognised him and asked if he was indeed Tim Brooke-Taylor, adding "That's me showing my age". Ross then said that he'd recently been mistaken for Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen by a woman he'd met, although understandably because "I was wrecking her house at the time."

Tim then sprayed half a glass of water over his notes and demanded that he get notice of any actually funny jokes in future. You won't hear that in the broadcast version, though, because it was in the warmup before the title music. It's going out Thursday at 6:30 pm on BBC Radio4, and will be streamable for the next week in the usual manner. Anything I told people about it being a live broadcast, you'll notice, turned out to be entirely wrong.

After that a few of us went to the Hoose, and from there I went over with Fran and CJ to the Traverse bar, where Mark, Michael Jackson and Dave Hetherington (with Pauline, although I didn't recognise her at all from my vague memories of her) from Potterrow Committee circa 1990 were having a drink. It was very good to catch up, and we stayed until the place closed, whenever that was.
