Edits and movies

All done with the first round of edits on 72 Hours. :woot:

I need to update a few things around the site—including getting an excerpt up for 72 Hours and finishing the behind the scenes page. I should probably find some scintillating bit of news to blog about….umm….nope. Still blank. So…movies:

If you want to see the most unsympathetic, unlikeable romance hero ever, watch Fever Pitch. Now, I HEART this movie, but it’s a Red Sox thing. (*hums “Tessie”*) And Jimmy Fallon leading the crowd in chanting “Wicked Pissah!” after we took the World Series is a moment I’ll never forget. Now, I can’t honestly guess how good the movie is if you’re not a Sox fan, but I do know Jimmy Fallon’s character is one of the single most unlikeable heroes ever.

Let’s see…Mission Impossible III. I’m so sad about this movie. I want to see it really, really, really bad, but I think Tom Cruise has morphed into one sick son of a bitch, and I’m not sure I’ll be able to enjoy it now. Plus I’m not sure they should get my $10.

Movie I’m most looking foward to—Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men’s Chest. Even the trailer has me laughing out loud.

Movie next on my “buy” list—Hoodwinked.

Next on my to-do list: Finish novella for Samhain, quickie for EC, Warlord for EC and actually work up the courage to send a novella to Brava.

    PotC hits the theatres just in time for the tall kid’s birthday. I’m thinking reserved table, pizza and ice cream! (oh, we have one of those cinema pub things)

    And I’ve only had mustering the courage to submit this story to Brava for about two years. I’m almost there.

    Oh, and I also have to think of a title for the EC quickie. I can’t keep calling it Sparky & the Horny Housewife. :roll:
