Catching Up From My Sick Bed

Well, I officially have tonsilitis. My doctor phoned in a prescription to the chemists and when I went to collect it I walked in and the pharmacist was standing at the counter. "Phoned in prescription for Moore?" he said. "How did you know?" "Because you look like crap." Cheers pal - way to make a girl feel good.

Anyway...onto things criminally Scottish.

More non news on Trainspotting sequel or not, as the case may be. And, in other film news here's a trailer from the new Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey Jr. And, apparently, the comedy version starring Sacha Baron-Cohen and Will Ferrell is on hold as they didn't want to go up against the Guy Ritchie pic.

Alexander McCall Smith's Precious Ramotswe to write a cookbook to raise funds for worthwhile causes in Botswana.

Interesting blog post from Aly Monroe on Edgar Allen Poe and word choice.

Paul Johnston on living and writing in Greece.

Talk of establishing a new literary quarter in Edinburgh, and the marketing of the city as a Unesco City of Literature.
