Drat! I'm obviously losing my touch. Sezer is being evicted even as I blog. The bookies say he's too cocky, but I like that.
sooo excited!! My big two are definitely going to be Rushdie and Seth, but also looking forward to Melvyn Bragg, Philippe Sands, Fiona Shaw, Gautam Malkani, John Pilger, a day of Mexican cinema with lots of GGB and also something on Frida, and please can I bump into Margaret Atwood, and would Zadie Smith please hang out even though her event is over, and Seamus Heaney will surely spill coffee all over me and then he'll have to apologise and ask who I am and why I'm there. And and and...it won't just be like reading Heat magazine, it'll be like actually BEING ON BIG BROTHER!!!!! Which, incidentally, features the fittest and rudest cast ever AND is 14 weeks long. Watch Sezer - that boy will go far.

I'm going to Hay-on-Wye tomorrow. The forecast is books and mud. Here's hoping I run into Margaret, 'grinning yellowly and hyperactively, as if I'd had a gene splice involving a pumpkin and a lunatic.'
