Space Bar, this one is for you! Forgot to post this somehow - picture taken in Gamla Stan in Stockholm a few weeks go. (SB: I still get the book, don't I?)

And we went and watched the Harry Potter movie last night. I watch all new HPs mostly because I think its funny to watch all these British actors taking their roles so seriously, without a trace of condescension. Latest additions being Imelda Staunton and Helena Bonham Carter. (AO Scott said this somewhere recently but I can't find the link and anyway, he didn't think it was funny, he thought it was a good thing!) This particular movie did have one more thing going for it - two very lovely night shots of the London skyline and the Thames. I mean, it takes some talent to make the skyline of this city look good, no?

i feel like jumping up and down on my son's trampoline and to hell with the dignity thing.
