So, to make up for the grumpiness of last post, let me share with you some things that have made me happy in the last 24 hours:
Fabulous interview with Shaun Tan (glorious creator of The Arrival and Tales From Outer Suburbia) on Bookslut.
Story from the Guardian that Yann Martel will have a new book coming out next year. The story (holocaust allegory with donkey and monkey in tow) sounds a bit improbable, but I so enjoyed Life of Pi that I don't care and will look forward to it with glee.
A short film that reminds me of some picture books that I used to read.
A dance film that is sexy and gorgeous and not lame.
So, a small quartet of things nice and pleasant and not grumpy at all (except maybe the black snake, but snakes can't help being hungry).
