Not So Miserables

After waiting weeks (and part of last year) to see Les Misérables, I finally saw it today. Does a mad-dance-scream combo and grins madly. Love, love, loved it. Just resisted singing along during the movie, but I've spent the time since we left the cinema singing, skipping and being generally annoying. This is not unusual.

I want to see it again. NOW. In fact, I threatened to watch the 10th Anniversary Concert on DVD this evening but Mum has lent it to someone. Noooooooo! Maybe, I could watch 'Once More With Feeling' instead.

Skips some more.

Then, when we were leaving the cinema, I opened my Gmail and discovered to my unrestrained joy that I'd sold a short story to Daily Science Fiction. Look out for my story 'Puppet Man' sometime in the coming year. You can read my previous Daily Science Fiction stories here and here. And, if you're in the mind to submit something yourself then you'll find guidelines here.

Skips away.

Jill's a big fan of LEs Mis. She started crying about a third of the way through the film and never stopped. She was an emotional wreck by the time she came home. Women are strange.

Congrats on the sale.

Great stuff! Well done, Cate.

Thanks, Deborah

Women are very strange, Mike. But sometimes, men are stranger. Thank you x

Thanks, Simon
