Games companies would have us believe that a lot more women play video games than is realised.

GameFAQs Poll of the Day today was a simple question: "Are you male or female?"

The results so far: 93.77% male, 6.23% female.

So maybe there are more women gamers, but it would seem that most of 'em like to play fair, either that or they aren't too concerned with finding every secret package in GTA IV or getting 100% completion in Final Fantasy XII or knowing the cheat codes to unlock everything in Guitar Hero III.

Okay, so it's not really his birthday, but it is the birthday of three English cricketers, one of whom is currently touring Australia with England, and two who I'd dearly love to have seen out there, not least because we'd have had a far better chance of winning with them than without (assuming their best form, etc).

But I digress. This is my first Christmas I've not spent with my parents (and I'm the last of their three children to do so, despite being the eldest - Kathryn has done Christmas in both Canada and New Zealand, and Sara went to her in-laws last year). However, certain traditions have been kept alive. For instance, pains au chocolat for breakfast. And buck's fizz. Except I'm the only person in this household who drinks alcomohol, and there's a whole bottle of Cava to get through. Rather, was. There ain't much left right now. Hic!

I'm playing Guitar Hero some, too... but it doesn't half knacker up your fingers (and I'm only playing on Easy!) So I'm taking a break and typing instead: how sensible of me.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Tennessee Titans' Cornerback Pacman Jones.

Edit: Darn, it turns out the guy's real first name is Adam.
