I really, really want to watch White Christmas, right now. Bing Crosby and Dick Van Dyke (EDIT: Actually Danny Kaye. *headdesk*) dancing and singing are among the only things that make snow in any way enjoyable.

Tragically, this is one of the movies I do not have on DVD.

I do, however, have banana bread.

The people next door have been drilling on the other side of the bathroom wall all morning. >.

Your banana bread is quite tasty; my memory on the subject serves me well!

Oh, I finished 'Neverwhere' in one sitting last night, and I must way I quite enjoyed the book! It was very inspiring, and I should probably return it to you, upon which I will do a little song and dnace for another good book to read :P

Well, I've got most of his other novels. I had all of them, but Mum seems to have lost my copy of Stardust. This leaves you with Coraline (which is a creepy Young Readers book), American Gods, and Anansi Boys, which makes no sense if you haven't read American Gods.

Preferences?

Well I was hoping for a sequel to Neverwhere; it was a satisfying universe to explore. (BTW: they have it for rental at the blockbuster on 216th in Ridge)

Hmm, I am in a science fiction mood; perhaps you can hook me up with an orwellian future?

I highly recommend the Neverwhere miniseries. It is Very Good.

If you want sci-fi, you'd probably rather Heinlein, of which I have enormous numbers. Most of Gaiman's stuff is urban fantasy, rather than sci-fi.

Recommending Heinlein is a little trickier. He wrote dozens and dozens and dozens of books. o.O

Have you read Stranger in a Strange Land? Or Methusela's Children? Or... hm. For any of the universe-heavy books, those ones would be necessary. But there's a lot of skinny pulp paperback written-for-teenage-boys-in-the-nineteen-fifties which are less substantive and don't tie into quite so many things and can be enjoyed for the multitude of space ships and aliens and explosions and things. Though all of them are big on the political rhetoric. ;)

Or The Moon is a Harsh Mistress! That's one of my favourite Heinleins. But I think Rissa had next dibs on it, after she finished the last De Lint I lent her.

I have read Zero Heinlein :P I just want something nice and Sci-fi and preferably a little more dark than the usual fare. And nothing iwth emo/misunderstood antagonists. I want evil to rear its ugly head!

I will lend you VURT when I pry it back from the hands of mik100 but until then, go with the Heinlein. Stranger in a Strange Land is good. Yes, I have called dibs on the Moon is a Harsh Mistress, even though the way in which it is written irritates me just slightly.
You'd probably also like de Lint, but I'm just saying that because I'm very fond of him right now. Whee.

I swear, you get used to it being written in Loonie. It's a bit like reading late-night LJ Posts From the Land Prepositions Forgot.

I think not. I sorely miss it, I'd better get it back before then!

It's Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye actually... but it's still a wonderful movie and I love it lots. Bing Crosby! Rosemary Clooney! Danny Kaye! Vera-Ellen! White Christmas!

Flove.

Argh. I always do that.

But, yes. Musical numbers! :D
