Going out with my closest friend for lunch. This means I won't even start reading the things I should be reading. And tonight I'll be watching the newly released DVD of the orignial British PENNIES FROM HEAVEN with Bob Hoskins. It was written by Dennis Potter who wrote THE SINGING DETECTIVE, perhaps one of the best commentaries on what it's like to be a writer. Don't let that put you off if you haven't seen it because it's very entertaining and one of the most brilliant pieces you'll ever see. Don't confuse this with the movie with Robert Downey Jr.
