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.

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!
