Happy birthday to moi.

Mutterings continued.

Much amusements at work. I sent an email to some co-workers inviting them to help commiserate my being dragged kicking and screaming ever closer to the dread half century. One took this to mean I actually was turning 50 (I'm not, just closer to 50 than 45) and was telling people that today was a special birthday. She was most embarrassed and I was highly amused. We went for lunch at Secret Garden in South Perth. Very pleasant.

From the Radio Times: "Knights on Broadway

All the surviving members of Monty Python will reunite to support Eric Idle's new musical Spamalot. The team will all attend the show's opening night on Broadway on 17 March. The lavish musical, based on the Pythons' Holy Grail movie and featuring an all-star cast including Frasier's David Hyde Pierce and Hank Azaria from The Simpsons, has been previewing to rave notices. Monty Python is the first subject of a new series of Comedy Connections, beginning on BBC1 on 21 February." They don't mention the wonderful Tim Curry!

"ET VOTED THE SADDEST SCENE

The moment in ET when the extra terrestrial leaves ELLIOTT to return to his
spaceship has been voted the most emotional scene in movie history.

A poll of 70,000 voters for British TV network CHANNEL 4 show THE 100
GREATEST TEARJERKERS placed ET above sad scenes in THE GREEN MILE, TITANIC
and BAMBI.

The top ten is as follows:

1: ET
2: THE GREEN MILE
3: TITANIC
4: IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE
5: GHOST
6: BAMBI
7: THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION
8: THE CHAMP
9: FIELD OF DREAMS
10: MY GIRL." I have only seen three of these and can only admit to crying at one. Which one would probably surprise. The movie that gets the most sobs out of me is Branagh's Henry V.

Off to Himali Gurkha tonight - I have a new frock. Sort of a frock because I'm not a frock wearing girl.

According to the Goodies Clarion and Globe, the second DVD is due out on March 2. Can I wait? Yeah, probably.
