What 'Law & Order: UK' Stars Do On Snow Days
Here's a cute article from the guardian.co.uk who caught up with a certain Mr. Jamie Griffith today:

Jamie Griffith was completely humiliated in front of his children, as others shot past on an assortment of brilliantly coloured sledges and toboggans – together with 17- and 18-year-old brother and sister Tariq and Annie Miller on a sledge hijacked from a toddler – and he slithered miserably down in low gear on his oven tray. He tried a black bin liner, with no more impressive results.

As he hopefully put the oven tray into a bin liner and tried again, another child shot past on the Bugatti of the Richmond hill toboggans, a vintage model borrowed from a Swedish family, with curved steel and wooden runners, wooden seat and sheepskin seat cover. "Wrong sort of snow," Griffith muttered.

He turned out to be a fugitive from Law & Order. The television series, in which he stars as Detective Sergeant Matt Devlin under his stage name Jamie Bamber, had wimpishly abandoned filming for the day.

Oh, sweet! I did the exact same thing last year with my kids (well, different London park, but same inefficient attempt using binbags and borrowed trays...) But it was great fun. Sadly, I was at work today...

Next time I shall remember to trek across town to Richmond... ;)

Dear Jamie,

You're doing it wrong! ;)

The cookie sheet (which I'm assuming is what they're referring to when saying "oven tray") thing works like a champ if you wax the bottom of the cookie sheet (rub some wax paper on it). You can also use non-stick cooking spray to help give it some go-power. Did it all the time when I was kid.

Good luck!

Come on, JB, try harder. The 1988 Jamaican bobsled team won their qualifying heat on a bin bag. ;)

p.s. You are so frakking adorkable.

Hee! So now I know what to get him, next time I see him - a sled! (Or sledge.) Come over here, Jamie, we have sleds at the hardware store!

He should've stolen a cafeteria tray. Those worked like a charm when I was in college!
