Starring Keanu Reeves as a Bunsen burner

First, one reads that Ian McEwan's Saturday, a book that employs stream-of-consciousness throughout, is to be made into a Hollywood film.

Now, one gets the news that Bill Bryson's A Walk In The Woods, which depends on a droll tone of voice for its readability, is also Hollywood-bound, with Robert Redford and Paul Newman in lead roles.

Given that such unlikely material is being snapped up by producers, one is holding on to one's Class IX chemistry notes. Just in case the Brothers Weinstein come calling.
