Salman Rushdie is progressing quite well now, I struck upon the idea of reading it after watching 'Spirited Away', given that not many things are more bizarre than that. It worked, the book seemed positively normal. Now I just have to keep a topped up supply of odd films and I'm fine.

Watched 'The Fisher King' last night - very disappointing, I was expecting it from the description to be enchanting, instead it was just confusing. Couple of nice cameos from David Hyde Pearce and John De Lancie (although neither would have been well known enough I think at the time?), but not in summary a good film.

We finished watching Cold Feet (having managed to miss all 5 series when they were on tv) on dvd last week. Much better than Friends (and I liked Friends), the British can produce good comedy, they just don't watch it.
