It's awfully quiet in here!

After the hustle and bustle of collating the votes for the recent Poetry Competition, the Post pigeon holes were somewhat bare this week. This is a shame as I was hoping that the stirring editorial written by EMR last edition may have encouraged more of you to set pen to paper and entertain our readers. We are especially on the look-out for articles about the h2g2 Community. If you run a successful club or your journal is one of the best-read, then why not tell the rest of us? Are you a budding Masterchef with original and inventive dishes? Send them over for inclusion in our recipe section. First person accounts of events big or small, travels undertaken, sports, arts, daily life; all are welcome. One brave soul did step up to bat after our last appeal and we welcome B'Elana as a writer rather than poet this week.

We seem to have misplaced Skankyrich so if anyone has seem him recently please ask him to get in touch. EMR is in the middle of finalising end of semester projects and prepping for exams so she is also absent. No wonder it seems quiet!

In other news, the main furore appears to have been the ill-judged comments made by a certain, now ex, contestant on the Channel 4 reality show Big Brother. As we don't receive this station over the Dutch cable system I hadn't heard much about it until it suddenly became an issue on the World Service - that stalwart of the ex-pat Brit all over the globe. It does strike me as somewhat bizarre that an essentially false environment, with a very strange mix of people from all corners of the so-called 'Celebrity' world, should cause riots in one of the most populous places on earth. Perhaps the programme editors should consider more carefully their choice of candidates in the future and not attempt to start another world war in microcosm. After all, we managed to run a like-minded series, The Post Big Bandwagon, way back in 2001 and kept 7 h2g2ers confined to a small area of this site without any major disputes breaking out!

Finally, a reminder that the next issue is out on February 8th so all copy should arrive by Sunday 4th please.
