Every now and again, we break our routine and go out on a date. It's our anniversary today, but Sunday nights are better movie nights, so we went to see The Constant Gardener (with Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz). You know how much I love John le Carre anyway, so it was a real treat to see his book translated so well on screen (one of you asked if I'd seen it yet). I recommend it; it's very moving. My husband, who spent a year in the Peace Corps in Ghana in 1977, said it brought back memories for him of being stranded in remote towns. And the soundtrack is terrific. I slipped next door to Barnes and Noble to pick it up - here's the most gorgeous, melancholy song for us to share. Khothbiro - Ayub Ogada/Alberto Iglesias

No Harry Potter preview beforehand, but they did show the trailer for Brokeback Mountain. I'm looking forward to that one, too. But I know I'm going to cry when I see it, not because of the story or the characters or any of the obvious reasons, but because it's set in Wyoming; more specifically in some of my old field areas. They're listed by name in the story, and I just gasped when I came to it. This is having the unfortunate effect of triggering a maudlin nostalgia for days long gone. I can't explain it; but some of you of a certain age will know what I'm talking about.
