What are ya’ll doin’ today? I’m feeling very southern for some reason. Don’t know why. :-) I think I’m still a little high on those cream puffs from yesterday. Did you eat your pastry of choice yet? Tell me about it. Did you pick up your new copy of CHARMED & DANGEROUS? I forgot to tell you guys that they did an excerpt of LIKE A CHARM in the back. It’s my first time to have something like that. :-)
Today I’ve been working on the next proposal for Berkley. It’s about the next Caruthers sisters story, and it involves dragons. Lots ‘o fun. I’m also revising the Zombie YA, and actually wrote some new scenes today.
So, um, as for the Christmas shopping. Presents for Candy: 3. Everyone else: 0. I know, I’m a horrible person. The presents were little. More Christmas CD’s. I found the Mindy Smith “My Holiday,” and of course while I was there I had to pick up Martina McBride and Sarah Maclachlan’s new ones. ;-) I mean, can you really buy just one CD? It’s not natural.
I’ve also been watching tons of movies in order to vote for the BFCA on Friday. Argh. There are so many good films from this year. Last night I re-watched “In the Valley of Elah” with Charlize Theron and Tommy Lee Jones, “Lars and the Real Girl” with Ryan Gosling, “Juno” and “The Kite Runner.” All of them are great films. I especially love Juno. That film is so unexpected. Oh, and I saw the “Golden Compass” over the weekend. Fun fantasy film, I wish the people who started all the talk about that film had actually seen it. And I saw “Charlie Wilson’s War,” another great one.
So did you eat your pastry, and where do you stand with your shopping? What holiday films are looking to see?
