coach crash, crumpets and comedy.

For the second time in my commuting history, an Arriva 757 coach has been involved in a crash on the M1. I guess, considering there have been over 100,000 trips up and down the motorway in that time, I guess it's not too horrific a statistic, but the fact that there was a fatality in this incident, and I believe it could have been the same driver and coach with which I travelled home last night certainly brings it home.

As one might imagine, it was something of a trial getting into work this morning - since junctions 1 to 4 are oncoming only, all the northbound vehicles had been stuck, including most of the coaches; moreover, the traffic slowed to the usual rubbernecking crawl past the scene of the accident, so in the end I arrived in the office an hour and a half later than normal.

I'm sure there'll be more information on the way home - with any luck the motorway will have reopened, and I'll not be home too late. I'm sure I'll let you know.

On lighter (more culinary?) matters...
Barry Norman's pickled onions. You couldn't make it up. It's clearly a labour of love, but movie critic to onion pickler? Now that is a career move. It's pickling time with pickling Barry..

Kerrygold are apparently offering free crumpets and a sample of Kerrygold buttery stuff. Strictly one per household, but I left my name and address after dialling 0845 6521400, and may end up with some food on my doorstep in November. It's worth the risk.

Anything else to report? Not much, save that the Peter Serafinowicz Show is on BBC2 tonight - he's been all around the YouTube world and played small (but significant) parts in almost every comedy that's worth its salt.. now he's finally got his own TV show. It's amusing - I guess it still needs to find its feet and its niche (so to step into a corner?) but I'll definitely be watching it again (not least because he's been in a lot of programmes with the fabulous Olivia Colman, and there's always the chance she might turn up!)
