Some days I really love this city. The sun shining, the river sparkling, the saxophonist playing away... St Paul's gleaming, a new random artwork, trains bustling, dashing from glamorous building to glamorous building in a slightly eclectic mix of velvet scraps... dancing and board games and gossiping

Other days I think the 4 hour commute really is crazy and I'm going to give it up Real Soon Now. But not when the sun is shining...

In other news, I am Really Really going to get on with Buffy stuff this weekend. Err, in between being visited by everyone who's visiting. The problem with being given fabulous birthday presents is it's very hard to get on with anything other than katamari, singstar or watching Rome at the moment.

I have tickets to see Stardust on Tuesday. I'm trying to remain calm about this, because I can't think of a single book I love that has been turned into a film I've been in the slightest bit happy with, but I'm still looking forward to it.

Do you happen to have both seen and read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas? I think the film does a very good job of capturing the book's mood, and the mood is everything in that book.

I think the trick is to go into an alternate universe, ie pretend very hard that you have never read the book - so you can be objective about the show, as something in its own right.

Works for me - sometimes...

It's by Neil Gaiman. I really love his books - Neverwhere is the first one I read, and my usual recommendation, although Stardust is sweeter. Of course he's most famous for the Sandman comics and for Good Omens with Terry Pratchett.
