Why universities? They are already mostly doing distance learning, and at home for "reading" week. Sending them back sound counter productive. Unless they are forced to stay at university over Christmas.

Oh and also to give themselves a massive arm dislocating pat on the back whenever somebody writes in to tell them that they are, once again, totally correct about whatever it is that said "point of view" is giving them a slobbering written BJ over.

Don't get me started over their embarrassing fawning over Biden, a man who undoubtedly feels nothing but disdain for the UK.

I suppose it also follows that BJ has tried to have an unclaimed/aborted child with every, alleged, human on this chart. Does it also mean that Misters Cain and Gove are in cahoots? It must be one long party at the spectator figuring all this out.

I dislike the celebrity versions because it promotes the idea, after the producers make it miles easier, that whatever strange species of Celeb* they have dredged up this week is somehow better than the people who get the full treatment during the week. Though Celeb worship is perhaps one of lesser evils telly is guilty of these days.

*There was a Celeb version of pointless where all the "Celebs" were BBC journos. W.T.F.

What utility does saying (or writing) whilst have over saying (or writing) while?

It is a longer word, it has less use in verbal rhythm. It is something I keep seeing people write, whilst, and I have never in used it verbally, ever. And it means exactly the same thing. Makes you sound like you are perhaps stroking a metaphorical thought beard while writing it?

Boy #2 came to show me a photo of a hedgehog he saw in the back yard, "It jumped off the coal shed!"

Shows me a photo of a effing massive rat looking like it is going to kill. "Er yeah, nice hedgehog son."

I sometimes use whilst when I'm pontificating in legal letters to legal professionals. If they start using Latin at me I consider it fair game.

I considered including the phrases Bouchees D'Amour and "Cellar Door." For words phrases with good mouth feel, the former meaning (almost) exactly that.

You would have thrown a ballistic whilst I'm sure.

I considered getting a PS5 as part of my new PC build*, but eh, its 500 I can spend on a new ultrawide. Other than the new Horizon (release date unknown, PC port very likely) there isn't anything I fancy on the new consoles. God of War maybe? It's not worth 500.

*Some time in the (far) future, I had manage to save 1,000, but, alas, the wife got wind of my lucre, after the bank sent me a statement. Back to square one.

I don't know either, she got very shrill when I suggested having my pay paid into my current account instead of the joint account. "Your money, is it?"

The grand is probably going to be spent on our children's Christmas. This is what 25 years of happy marriage looks like I guess.

I've not seen my parents in 20 odd years..
Yesterday I got a text from my dad letting me know my mum is in hospital waiting on a operation for ovarian cancer.
I raised the courage to ring him back & long story short I'm going to see him tomorrow.
It feels like a 20 year scab has been ripped off but I'm looking forward to it & hopefully will get to seen my mum again.

Don't be a fool like me & wait this late long.. give your parents a hug from me.

This is what got my mam.

Good luck, I wouldn't wish those last 6 months on anybody, except the executives at J&J who saved a penny by mixing talc with asbestos. Bastards.
