I was so tired today I had two naps, the second one featuring a complicated dream eco-adventure involving nefarious conspiracies and polluted water. Probably because I watched The Constant Gardener the other day. Rachel Weisz and especially Ralph Fiennes were excellent in it, though I'd read the book so knew the plot already, but the acting and the visuals were stunning.

blythely, the books arrived safely, thank you so much! If you don't tell me what you want from the US, I'll be forced to guess, and that could be disastrous...

My kidlet is massively in love with the song "The City of New Orleans" and wants to perform it karaoke-style. I don't even know where to start looking for something like that. Help?

My Rhapsody music subscription offers a karaoke-style version of the Arlo Guthrie version that song on an album by "Sound Choice Karaoke" called "Classic Male Pop - Volume 31 - Karaoke". The track would only cost me a dollar if you need it.

Oh, that makes sense, thank you! iTunes has several, most with really syrupy strings. I think I'll get the Willie Nelson one and that way, I won't have to cringe every time I hear it.

Excellent. Honestly, there's nothing I'm after at the moment, and I have a to-read pile a mile high. I'll hit you up if something comes along, promise :)

i adored that film, although i've been in love with ralph fiennes for most of my adult life, so that was no real surprise. rachel weisz is particularly beautiful in it.

Ralph was amazing. I bet John Le Carre was quite pleased with that particular self-insert portrayal.
