Thanks to all of you who expressed your kind wishes yesterday. As for those of you who mouthed off instead (and you know who you are), the Scottish Dwarf will be 'round with a baseball bat shortly.

In addition to taking the coffee/aspirin/book cure, I also popped in my Netflix-supplied copy of The Commitments. What an inspired choice - just the combination of extremely Irish humor and sweet soul music one could want. Andrew Strong as Deco Cuffe looked like Meatloaf channelling Joe Cocker. And Maria Doyle Kennedy as Natalie the dark-haired back-up singer could easily find a place on our list of Flash-In-The-Pan 90's Babes. An outstandingly light, quirky and energetic flick, this one is probably well worth buying.

Glad to hear you're feeling better. Nice to hear about the "movie" component of the cure. Now, which book?

Hint: It's all Gary the Tolkien Geek's fault.
