charmed :)  
Ted and I just came back from watching "Music & Lyrics", the new Hugh Grant/Drew Barrymore movie. Now, basically, I think you can't go wrong with a Hugh Grant romcom, and if you can overlook Drew's frequent bad taste in costars, you pretty much can't go wrong with her, either. So I was predisposed to like it, but I in fact found it *completely* charming and smiled all the way through it, except the parts where I laughed out loud. Hugh Grant as one of the two front members of an 80s pop band was shriekingly, peek-through-your-fingers gigglingly funny, and the songs they did were OMG perfect. I mean, they'd have been hits, no doubt about it. It was not original, every scene you'd expect was in it, there were no surprises, but I thought it was all well done for what it was. Plus, Hugh did his own singing. I can't ask for much else. I'll own this one. :)

jaylake says incredibly sensible things about writing as a career, but I'm too zonked from a head cold to add my own two cents. Basically, hear hear.

Speaking of hear hear, while the cabbie was driving us around yesterday, I mentioned the biggest problem with Cobh is that it hasn't got a traditional music pub. The cabbie said, "Here's your brother!", a phrase I'd never heard before but instantly adored. :)

A variation of "Bob's your uncle?"

No, it was vehement agreement. :)

Actually, after many hours of thinking about it (or not), perhaps I'm not really sure what "Bob's your uncle" means, so maybe it is a variation on the theme. :)

My understanding is that it's kinda like "There ya go!"
