feed me now

At the point where I really wanted to fall asleep I found myself having a conversation with my stomach along the lines of:

Stomach: It's dinnertime.

Me: No. It's nearly midnight. You had dinner, remember? With Steve Jones, Bryan Talbot, Holly and...

Stomach: That was lunch.

Me: You're forgetting the time difference. Really, I just need to sleep.

Stomach: FEEED MEEEE....

So I got up and ordered an omelette from Room Service.

And now that I'm up...
is the Hugo Award nominations. It looks a really good list.

Given that we've discussed the nominations for best short form dramatic presentation here over the last year, and have suggested three things...

Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form

Battlestar Galactica "Razor" written by Michael Taylor, directed by Félix Enríquez Alcalá and Wayne Rose (Sci Fi Channel) (televised version, not DVD)

Dr. Who "Blink" written by Stephen Moffat, directed by Hettie Macdonald (BBC)

Dr. Who "Human Nature" / "Family of Blood" written by Paul Cornell, directed by Charles Palmer (BBC)

Star Trek New Voyages "World Enough and Time" written by Michael Reaves & Marc Scott Zicree, directed by Marc Scott Zicree (Cawley Entertainment Co. and The Magic Time Co.)

Torchwood "Captain Jack Harkness" written by Catherine Tregenna, directed by Ashley Way (BBC Wales)

I was pleased to see them all on the short list.

And Stardust is on the long list (up against Harry Potter, The Golden Compass, Enchanted, and the whole of season one of Heroes), so congrats again to Matthew and Jane.

Now back to try the whole bed thing again...
