Hump Day

Let’s see – I hit 25K on Making Chase last night. This is an emotional book so I’m having to work to rein Tate in. She’s wounded but really strong at the same time and Matt is the kind of guy who’s never really had to struggle and he realizes this and it’s sort of difficult for him to face. The sex has been fun to write and I love Tate’s family a lot. I’m hitting the meat of the story right now (no, not that meat, sheesh)

My husband bought a special scale that has body fat measurements, etc on it. I wasn’t that excited about using it but I have to say I was pleased with the results. I expected my body fat to be a lot higher but I’m at the good end of the healthy scale, so yay! A few years ago it was really high so having it be healthy is a nice thing. I still don’t like scales though.

I’m just finishing up Alison Kent’s The Perfect Stranger. I’m going to be running a fun contest to win an ARC soon so keep an eye out.

I’ve been listening to TV on the Radio as I exercise, I am in love. I also found Sleater Kinney’s One Beat – I’d thought I lost the CD (along with Liz Phair’s Exile in Guyville which is still missing). I miss Sleater Kinney already. Why can’t sucky bands break up, why always the bands I love?

Not watching much television. I rarely do, especially when I’m working a lot. I was not impressed with last week’s Battlestar Galactica, I frown in your direction, writers! Dresden, now I know they’re deviating from the canon and that agitates people, but I’m liking it. I love the books too, but oh, okay, it’s Paul Blackthorne. I can’t help it, I’m weak, he’s soooo Harry! Well, better looking I think, but still that rumpled loser with the heart of gold thing – it works. It also makes me happy that Jim Butcher has given the series a thumbs up.

Um, well yeah, that’s about it, nothing very exciting. It snowed here this morning for a while but it’s turned to rain, my daugher is watching Barbie Rapunzel for the millionth time (Thanks auntie Megan, LOL). Oh, RT is less than two months off now, yay!

Have a good hump day!

    I didn’t realize Dresden was based on a book series. I saw it for the first time on Sunday and I thought it was pretty good. I especially like the conversation back and forth w/ the ghost. I’ll have to catch it on the rebroadcast during the week. Since Sunday at 9:00 is the Surreal Life or Cold Case.

    Don’t like the scale. Mine is a regular one in the basement. Haven’t weighed in awhile. But will do so on March 10. Hopefully I’ll be satisfied w/ the number. I’ll be happy when I hit my goal weight.

    Christine – Oh yeah, the Dresden Files books by Jim Butcher. They’re all really wonderful and I highly recommend them! Actually, I recommend him as a fantasy author in general.

    In the books, Bob isn’t a corporeal ghost, he’s a ball of light who lives in the skull. He can possess the cat from time to time. But I sort of like what they’ve done in the series making him a ghost. The personalities are different too, again, I think they’ve done a good job even if it’s different than the books

    Located one the hardcopies of your books today that I’d been hunting for, and put my signed name plate in it, grinning like a loon. Was kinda hard to get it to stick to the electronic e-books. Giving Chase now sits on the Author Altar in the Art Room next to the other signed books. Grin! (I love my book altar. It fills me with quiet joy…) Ah, sorry – i’m all tangenty brained this evening. Crazy work day. Just wanted to say thanks. Rhi
