Re: Spoilers for Friday 2nd November 2018 (Series 79, Prelim 91)

Coughs and stammered were great, any more to look out for? I can't rightly remember. I think I was flagging a bit by then and I was perhaps a tiny bit disappointed there was so little reaction from NH to both of those (it wasn't just that any reaction was edited out, there just wasn't any) that unl...

I'VE FINALLY GOT A GOOD, AND MEANINGFUL RECORD. I'm happier about this than I thought I would be. Well, when the CoC comes around you will have to set your sights on 377, get more than that and you'll have the most points ever (if Conor's 2364 is actually the current highest) so it's not over yet!!

I find it so annoying that he never picks 4 large like he would on apterous, he has enough of an advantage against non-apterites as it is, without the obvious point grabbing 1 large picks.

Well done you scored over 100 against a non-apterite
