Dresden and Josh

The Dresden Files series premier was last night. And I, for one, was not disappointed. The actors are well-cast, particularly Paul Blackthorne as Harry Dresden and Terrence Mann as Bob the skull. They play really well off of each other. For those that missed it last night, the SciFi Channel will be airing the pilot again today and tomorrow.

I’ve started several books but haven’t finished anything lately. The Spy Who Loved Me, by Ian Fleming is a bit unlike his other Bond books, as this one is written from a woman’s perspective. I’m about halfway through this 172-page book, and so far it has just been Vivienne’s back-story – who she is and how she views men. So far, it has been masterfully written and engaging.
I found the book with the cover to the right at Half-Price Bookstore.

2006 G.I.F.T. Challenge

Carl has issued a 2006 G.I.F.T. Challenge.

My choices to review will be:

1. Santa Claus 3: The Escape Clause
2. The Holiday
3. The Christmas Candle by Max Lucado
4. Christmas Letters by Bret Nicholaus
And probably a few others…

And on the subject of Christmas, quite a few blogs have been doing a Christmas Tag. It’s been fun to read everyone’s answers.
Christmas Meme:

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Both, though a little Egg Nog goes a long way.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree?
His elves wrap them. He knows how to delegate.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?
White. Looks much classier.

4. Do you hang mistletoe?
I would, but there’s no point this year. Unless I meet someone pretty fast!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Well, I’m heading to Georgia early Thursday morning with some family for the weekend. I’ll be back on to posting on Monday… with a few book reviews, I imagine. (And hopefully, another addition to the gallery.) I’ve been lax with drawing lately. Apologies to Colleen! I’m hoping I remember to print off all my reference material so I can do some sketching this weekend. And even if I don’t, I’m taking Monday off just to recoup. I’ll have no excuse then. Also, hoping to see Casino Royale again this weekend! (Dad hasn’t seen it yet… that’s my excuse.)

On another note, I can’t decide if I want to see The Fountain which releases today. It’s gotten booed in Venice and hissed in Canada. People have gotten up and walked out. I’m not sure what’s so bad about it, but I’m going to wait to see what friends say about it.
Let me know if you see it, and what you thought!

Fun (and slightly disturbing) waste of time:

Check out Hairy Mail.

So Many Books…

Over the weekend I picked up a couple new books. (As if my TBR pile isn’t big enough.)
Diagnosis Murder: The Double Life, by Lee Goldburg, the seventh novel in the series.
DC Universe: Helltown (Dc Universe) by Dennis O’Neil.
And tonight, I’m picking up Superman Returns: The Prequels, Bryan Singer (graphic novel).

I started reading DC Universe: Last Sons over the weekend. This is going to be a fun, quick read. And Battlestar Galactica: Redemption, Richard Hatch’s latest in his continuation saga. Right now, on sale at Amazon for $2.99! I wonder if it’s a mistake. But a hardback book for $3, man I wish I hadn’t bought this 2 months ago! I feel ripped-off.
