Some useful information I learnt from watching Tuesday's episode of Criminal Justice. If you're ever banged up in prison, tell them you're a Mormon. That's the wonderful Pete Postlethwaite's line, anyway. If you say you're a Mormon you won't get the revolting prison tea, but a delicious mug of hot chocolate. But isn't there caffeine in chocolate, too? Ours is not to wonder why.
This reminds me of some more advice I was once given. If ever you're in hospital, say you only eat kosher food. It's brought in from outside and is hot and delicious. The only thing is, if you're unlikely to make it out of hospital you get a visit from the rabbi. Who'll probably ask you if you're eating well.
By the way, star spotters, guess which one of the following I just made eye contact with in the street...
1. Mitch Winehouse, leaning out of his cab, buying a copy of The Evening Standard.
2. Leonard Cohen, combing his hair, looking at his reflection in the window of Currys.
3. ABC's Martin Fry walking towards Covent Garden, in conversation with an attractive young lady.
