 Not sure why this was so thrilling to me, the cover’s not even up there yet. But I got a jolt of excitement anyway.

   “Heather Waters debut novel is without doubt, one of the best stories I’ve read in years.  The Devil’s Possession has it all.  A sit-on-the-edge-of-your seat story line, a memorable heroine and a hero to die for.  The magic of the land in which she’s set her story is a marvelous match to the magic of her storytelling.” –Sharon Sala

How fabulous is she???????ninelives.jpg

Superman Returns…DVD

January 3, 2007 at 11:45 am (Movie/Media Reviews)

superman.jpgPerhaps I won’t be completely fair to this movie because I so loved the old ones and adored Christopher Reeves, but I just didn’t like this movie very much, which is depressing because I really wanted to see it. The first thing that bothered me was the new Lois Lane. Sorry, but her name eludes me – probably because she’s a pretty forgettable actress. I didn’t so much have issues with the guy who played Superman (can’t remember his name either), but something about him bothered me. It was my DH who pointed out what I think might be the reason I didn’t like this guy in the role. He made a decent Superman, and occasionally looked so much like Christopher Reeves that I almost liked him. But it was his alter-ego, Clark Kent, that fell short. The new actor just couldn’t look awkward and geeky enough to pull that off. Same with Kevin Spacey. I know his name because I adore him, but he just wasn’t a great Lex Luther for me. Again, not sure why. Maybe because he played it too much like the guy he played in Seven, like my brother suggested.

Anyway, the story is boring – couldn’t Lex Luther have wanted something more brilliant than a new land mass? Really. That’s the whole conflict. I had a hard time staying awake to see the ending. I almost wish I’d gone to sleep.

M.I.A.

Happy New Year to everyone! It’s finally 2007, which is a year I’ve been waiting for rather impatiently. Only 8 months to go before Devil’s Possession debuts! Shoot, I did longer than that for two pregnancies. Piece of cake!

Seriously though, I’m on a break from writing until my kids return to school Wednesday. I had to choose between trying to write with them hanging around, or putting work aside and letting them live. I chose to let them keep breathing (at least until Spring Break).

My brother and his family are off to Italy for a 3 year tour. It was really hard to say goodbye, especially since it had been 3 years since I’d seen them anyway, and they’d just come to visit for Christmas. We’ll just not mention how jealous I am that they’ll be 45 minutes from Venice! Before they left, my brother and his wife decided I needed to try a game they love called World of Warcraft. It’s a sign that they are evil, evil people, because I’m hooked. Hence, the title of this post. M.I.A. that’s me. I’ve barely moved off my patio in 3 days.

Sigh….. But what’s not to love? I get to pretend to be an elf all day long! Or a cute little gnome….. Nevermind that my dh can’t remember what I look like. He’ll get over it.

Here’s hoping Santa was good to all of you and that the New Year’s baby will be even kinder 🙂
