I’m in a really good mood today for some reason. I’m not sure why — I have no cause to be more or less happy than usual. Work is as dull as ever (and I’m getting static shocks from every metallic surface in the office), but even there I was bouncing around the place, happy as Larry (whoever he is). Town was full of scallies, but I walked past the gang of swearing, spitting yobs outside McDonald’s like they weren’t there. The de rigueur whinging in the pages of the Liverpool Echo failed to depress me. Firefox crashed while I was writing this blog entry, but that cannot dull my spirits.

Maybe it’s because the right film won the BAFTA Award. The BAFTAs were actually quite inspiring this year, with a gaggle of real, worthy, intelligent (but not dull) films winning the awards.

Stephen Fry was a great host as always. For me, the man epitomises everything that is great about Britain — not the flag-waving, Daily Express-style faux patriotism, but actual proper, decent, reserved, urbane gentlemanliness (is that a word? it should be). If I ever get a chance to meet him, I will gush uncontrollably… and then I’ll pay him some compliments.

Whatever the reason, I’m feeling full of energy and creativity tonight. I need to channel it somewhere. Maybe I’ll even finish that about me page that’s been sitting around undone for some considerable time.

Oh, and I found this on eBay, which might interest you if you’re the sort of person who’s interested in those types of things.
