And moving off a film I don't want to talk about, and back onto a film I do want to talk about, I am giving you a few inspirational quotes re living with cancer.

In case you think I have done the work for this - I haven't! - I have just chosen the best from this site:

Some excellent thoughts and sentiments there. :-)

My Third Star dvd arrived! But I'm going to wait a little to watch it. It's going to be an emotional few days without adding fictional trauma on top right now. I know I've been fortunate to get the dvd at all. Even some pre-orders don't seem to have been fulfilled before stock ran out. The distributors must have seriously underestimated Benedict's pulling power! :-)))

What I will say about this film is that I actually, despite its subject matter, actually, if truth be told, probably because of its subject matter, found it heart-warming and uplifting.

You can watch it with your husband as I personally think this particular film's real "home" target audience is men not women (although women will buy the DVD because it is Benedict!).

I am really glad that the film went out of stock or with a much longer delivery time both at Amazon and HMV - this film, more than most films, deserves to be seen and loved by as wide an audience as possible. I myself have gone all out to sell this film to as many people as possible! I have done the same with Stuart. I don't think I will be prepared to do the same re TTSS!
