Sounds like the neighbours are in. Joy. Not really. Loud and annoying.

Have decided not to go the flicks tomorrow. Left it too late and the film is on in too few places to get a good time and a good price. Don't want to overpay for an average film, so am leaving it. Shame, but hohummm.

Will have to save up for Harry P and Captain A. Woohooo. :)

And it means more writing time tomorrow - to make up for today's appalling page count of two. Ahem. Whoopsie.

Nearly the weekend. Nearly.

Have fun! :D

Well hot without the cakes - I'm fat enough thanks! :D

Yes, very hot, really humidy hot. Ug. Not sleep conducive at all so still up on a school night.

Wondering how to get more peeps to my Facebook artyfart page. Not having much luck there and not sure how others do it? No, wait that's not true since I'm doing it for other pages and doing well, but lack the reserve to get it going for my own page. Conundrum.

Finished my lady today at the studio. Pleased that I got it done since I seem to have been working on it forever. Eeek.

Some thunder and a bit of rain would be nice, just to lift the air enough so we can sleep. Hope you all have a great week.

Work, work and more work

By choice. Updated the gallery website and thought, while I'm here I might as well get my own little site going. Thanks, Wix. I did it.

Now I feel very square eyed and square bummed. I am no doubt diabetes waiting to happen. Eeek.

Still need to fine tune a few pages before sending off this week. Still not happy with the title, but have really struggled on that for this one. My excuse is I haven't written the whole 90 pages, therefore I don't know the feel or complete story, and therefore don't know the best few words to sum it up for a title. *sheesh*

But at least I've been productive today. Mostly.

Looking forward to the sun tomorrow - mind you, they did predict a mini summer for today and it didn't happen... so we will see. Could be a great washing day, indeedy.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Just realised that most of the pics on here are of the cat. HAHAARR. *sigh*

About as interesting as my life gets these days - lol.

Here's a non-cat piccie. Have a great Friday! :D

Been stuck on Twitter, my new found efriend. Altho, most of the time I have no clue what I'm doing and tend to get ignored. Whoops: " ...fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — You can't get fooled again."

Well, life is back to normal and the heaveho of the last few weeks has gone. To be replaced by a stalemate on a "thing" that would be great to finally get sorted out. "Things" are never simple eh and sent to drive us nutsio.

So I've been able to concentrate on the writing for the past two weeks - not done a great deal. Of course, I'd like to think it's quality rather than quantity, some quantity would be nice too though. Will see if it's worth sending off... or not.

With the mention of fuzzy - the furry one is THREE years old tomorrow! In human years he's in his twenties, but still acts like he's in his terrible twos. Kitty prerogative I hear. Prerogative goes meow - a lot.

Happy Birthday to Alfie Pickle, Esq. :D

X Men...

First Class, mmmm. not so much. Second class and over the weekend with no deliveries on a Sunday, lucky to get anything good on a Saturday.

I thought the start and set up was all a bit scrappy, settling on nothing until we got to... *spoiler alert*  Xavier's home and the training. It all lacked humour, the dialogue lacked punch and wit with a fair bit of annoying on the nose "let's tell them straight just incase they don't understand our mutant feelings" dialogue. Shame. Wasted opportunity I think.

And the moves between the two stories of the lead lads' felt jarring and out of sync, and in light that we knew the two would meet, it seemed unnecessarily bitty.

The cast was good enough I think. Surprisingly I found Kevin Bacon not only terribly (worryingly) thin, but he lacked weight in his baddieness role. Yet in Hollow Man he's every bit the sinister creep. Good to see the Brits getting in there, especially Nicholas Hoult our growing lad from About a Boy and Skins. Blesssss. And I found Fass-(round the)-bender captivating - even more so than McAvoy. I'm not convinced James has the same theatrical, personality weight as our Patrick "engage" Stewart.

Then the big battle and climax it all seemed exciting and very much a proper action packed film and all... well most... well some... was forgiven. Not quite as miraculous as the repackaged Star Trek, but not bad.

I did enjoy it. Honest.

If you haven't guessed already - I'm writing this weekend. Have 14 pages to find from somewhere. Heheee. Have a great weekend, y'all!
