The Book Group is back on the ABC tonight. Lol. It's just occurred to me that Lachlan could be played by an actor other than the guy who played his twin brother Barnie - wasn't Barnie kind of short... and who'd know under all that hair?


While I'm talking telly (and I often am), Gill stayed up to watch Six Feet Under on Channel Nine in Perth. Glad that it started on time but we were surprised that two episodes aired. The West didn't mention the second episode in its weekend magazine TV guide but it was mentioned in Monday's TV guide. As Six Feet Under screens at 10.45pm, the additional episode meant staying up until 12.45am. Having watched the second series I chose to go to bed. More frustrating is that following the second episode it was announced that it was the final in the series but I know that it wasn't... unless an awful lot happened in that final fifteen minutes! Nah, I've checked the episode guides and there are three more episodes in series two - maybe they'll screen three episodes next week? :-) Who knows. I do hope that WIN TV screens the third series.


Read Notes and illustrations on Regency clothing styles
(with 1895 Charles E. Brock illustrations for Pride and Prejudice)
- and a bit more, maybe a little piece from Pride and Prejudice in which Elizabeth is dancing with Darcy, etc - while looking for more information about the clothes worn during Matthew Flinders time (known to quite a few people as the Regency period). Also found A Regency Repository and Jessamyn's Regency Costume Companion.


'Keeping an eye on the wandering eyes of web surfers' (The Age Online, May 6) had me wondering what it might be like to track the eye movements of someone with RP while he or she is using the Web... in comparison to viewers with normal visual fields. Might be a bit unnerving to know how many more eye movements are made to navigate a site (just as German research has shown that it takes more movements of the eye to navigate an unfamiliar building). Now I'm wondering where I look first on a page... I think I look for a header/title, and then straight for the article/content. The research is being carried out at the The Access Testing Centre in Sydney.


Read that 'Weight loses Church movie role' (BBC) - Charlotte Church did not audition for a Hollywood movie of Phantom of the Opera because to do so she was expected to lose weight.
