I am grateful:
- That Peter Jackson will be involved in the production of The Hobbit. I loved Lord Of The Rings, and thought he did a fantastic job directing it, so when the relationship with New Line broke down I felt great sorrow about what may happen to the quality of The Hobbit.
- That I’m uncomfortable in my new role. It sounds a bit strange (even to me as I write it) but given the choice between being challenged, struggling, uncomfortable, and in constant fear of failure, versus being stone-solid bored — I think it’s better to be uncomfortable. My ulcer, of course, may have a different perspective.
- I’m kidding. I don’t have an ulcer. At least not yet. And for that, I’m way grateful.
