Carravaggio

anyone who had a heart

How odd, as, watching the old classic, I was wondering whatever happened to that film they were talking up years ago, and, well, wouldn't you know it: Brideshead to be revisited for the big screen

Interesting, though I think alas, Jude might be getting a bit past it, but I can't think of anyone better off the top of my head.

Nipped off early to try and get some kip, and it almost worked, had my (not so) favourite cockatoo spied me nestled in quilts under the window (for the breeze) and crept as close as he could before leaning in and screeching "WAKE UP!!!" and then giving me that little boy "I'd like a biscuit please" look. Worse, once he'd got me up he let his mates know, so I had the whole bloody gang 'round the back steps. It's moments like these that make you wonder if they'd be better served as sausages or pies.

Speaking of pies, and an offline discussion that rapidly degenerated into Sweeney Todd scenarios: Pig farmer 'killed 49 women but wanted 50'

Note to self: don't eat any pork pies from Canada.
