Thats ok Madeleine, I have the same feeling when a favorite author is released first in the UK, even if said author is American! I suspect its all about the movie/book industries various quirks that makes such things happen. But I also suspect its going to be coming to your shore very soon. Its absolutely not to be missed.

Just realized it's not playing in my town either. I don't think it was playing last week, so I'm hoping this means it is yet to come.

Watched Another Cinderela Story last night. Not bad. Likeable leads. Great choreography.

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas--the Jim Carey version. Not as horrible as I was led to believe. Loved the Who's maxing out their credit cards and overdoing for the lighting contest. Could have done without the improbable love story. Little Cindy Lou Who and Max the dog just as adorable as ever! Tonight it's Miracle on 34th Street -- the original version. I've got my box of tissues ready.

"The King's Speech" opens in the UK on Jan 7th.

A colleague at work is getting very excited at a new TV series coming next spring (in the US) called "Game of Thrones", based on a series of fantasy books; it looks good, and there are a lot of Brits in the cast too!

There are lots of people here excited by it as well including those of us who swallowed whole the four volumes of his Song of Ice and Fire (each volume at close to 1000 pages, but for those of us in the author's thrall, it didn't matter one dime) He still hasn't written a final volume to it, many have wondered if perhaps he will come to an ending of sort in the series. Can. Not. Wait.!

According to Amazon's UK site, book 5 is called Dance of Dragons and will be published in hardback next September; the 3rd book was also published in 2 parts,although I'm not sure if that was just in the UK.

Meet Me in St. Louis. I really liked it. Tootie was a little disturbing, but overall it was good. Can't stop singing the theme song.

Victoria and Albert. Watching it again on Monday.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
{Ensiferum}
