A busy day. First port of call was the LERI-organised event 'Must We Play the Audit Game?', combining Dr. Johnson and the need for academics to resist the cult of Quality Assurance, despite QAA Chief Executive Peter Williams comparing his quango's work to Robert Persig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Then to the ICA, where a Fernando Di Leo season is in full swing - tough going for uninitiated. And on the way there I saw reality TV* star Paris Hilton lining up on the red carpet for the UK premiere of House of Wax. The invention of the cameraphone allows ordinary blokes to join the paparazzi, while standing around having conversations of the 'I'd do her'/'I'd do her too' variety. Celebrity culture on a Tuesday night, and Big Brother 6, hasn't started yet.
