Off to BEA

I’m off to BEA. I’ll see everyone when I get back. 🙂

Yesterday I went into work with dh. The office was closed, but we both had work to do. I managed to dig into a couple of chapters and plan to continue today after I clean the house. No, I’m not procrastinating. I just can’t stand to look at the dust any longer. 😯

There are only a couple days left of the Brenda Novak auction. I know money is tight. Everyone is feeling the pinch, but give what you can. My two items are HERE and HERE.

Can you all believe that it will be June in five days? I know I can’t. 🙄

My mom’s dad died in WWII. Grandma never really talked about it, but I doubt there was a day that she didn’t think about him. To those near and far, who have served and are still serving, you are in our thoughts. Thank you for a most precious sacrifice. Come home safe. Come home soon.

Indiana Jones IV

We went to see Indiana Jones yesterday. It had a lot of the fun that you normally get from an Indi movie. The cast was back with some additions and a few ‘missing’ faces, which were explained quickly. This time the Russians were after the artifacts. Their motivations were a tad unclear, but that didn’t stop the movie from rolling forward. (Keep in mind Lucas wrote this…and the last few Star Wars flicks.)Harrison was his typical Indi. It was nice to see the character back. Everyone was moving a bit slower, but that’s not really a surprise. The special effects got a little over the top after a while and the ‘silliness’ factor rose significantly in this installment. The best description for the movie came from dh. He said it’s a cross between the Temple of Doom and the Last Crusade with the emphasis falling toward the Temple of Doom. I think if you go into it with no expectations, then you’ll have a good time. If you’re a long-time Indiana Jones fan, then it’s a must-see. 🙂 Have a safe Memorial Day Weekend. We’re off to see Narnia.

No, I’m not talking about work. I’m talking about the new Indiana Jones movie. We’re off to see it in a few minutes. I look forward to a couple of hours of escapism. 🙂 I plan to put up a mini-review when I return. In the meantime, check out this new SFF blog that just started up. Good stuff!

I haven’t been as productive as I would’ve liked over the last couple of weeks so I’m going to start heading out of the house to get away from the computer write.

Brenda Novak’s auction is down to the final days. There’s still time to bid on the critique and the ARC. Don’t miss your chance for me to be crushingly hard on you. 😈 😉

As an aside, did anyone catch Bones the other night? If so, what did you think? This afternoon I’m going to watch the season finale of NCIS. (No spoilers, please.) I hear it left things in quite a pickle. I’m bracing, since this seems to be the year the networks f*ck with everything I like to watch. And yes, I’m still bitter about Moonlight. 🙄
