Last fiction book: "Canaan" by Geoffrey Hill. It's poetry, does that count? If it's a novel you want, it's "Five Red Herrings" by Dorothy Sayers

Last non-fiction book: "Religio Medici", Sir Thomas Browne (1635)

Last film: "Murder on the Orient Express" (1960ish),

Favourite weblog: Real Live Preacher (A Co-operative Baptist, no less)

Craving: Tea and toast with marmite

Favourite verse: ? Ecclesiastes 3:10-12:

10 I have seen the burden God has laid on men. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12

You know, I've never had marmite. Always wanted to try it. When I come someday to the Antipodes to visit my relatives, and you, I expect to be given marmite.

Love the Scripture.

And if it is the Peter Ustinov/David Niven film, it's from the 70s...

Could you extrapolate a bit on "what the bleep...?"? I have a friend who wanted me to go see it, and I was sort of game, until I did a bit of reseach on the internet. Still, I'd be open to seeing it. Is it worth seeing on screen or can it wait for netflix?

Hugo

It's an unclassifiable film, Kelly, it really is. I am sure it can wait for netflix, but on the other hand, it does have some stunning moments. My skepticism was worn down gradually,and I ended up truly enjoying it. But it ain't for everyone.

Very well, Hugo, when you come, (Looking forward to it, whenever it is) I shall educate you. ;-) Yes, it is the Peter Ustinov version, but I couldn't remember the year. By the way, when one buys Sanitarium Marmite, one is also supporting Adventist Relief in Africa, which is another reason to buy it! ;-) I thought you might appreciate the small nod to my inner liberal, which also writes letters against the Free Trade Agreement with China, wants a free Tibet and likes Fair trade coffee.
