2009 upcoming movies! [Feb. 27th, 2009|10:16 am]
It's that time again - the time of year when I remember to look at imdb.com's list of upcoming films in the new year. I will now treat you to the list of films about which I feel excitement!

Under the Sea 3D
Watchmen: the IMAX experience
Sunshine Cleaning
I Love You, Man
Monsters vs. Aliens
The Butterfly Tattoo
The Soloist (even though I tire of the preview)
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Star Trek
Angels and Demons
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Land of the Lost
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Funny People
Julie & Julia
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
Where the Wild Things Are
A Christmas Carol
Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Three Stooges
Sherlock Holmes
The Princess and the Frog

Some of these I'm sure I'll learn more about and decide not to see, and I'm sure Chrissy will want to see things that aren't on this list. Looks like a good year ahead!

Writer's Block: Super Sunday [Feb. 1st, 2009|11:11 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

Which is the better game: the Superbowl or the Puppy Bowl?
The Puppy Bowl is my second favorite event of the year! I host an annual party and seriously, it's fun. You should come next year. This year's party was a triumph! Those dogs were so cute. My favorite was Madeline, the light beagle. Don't even get me started on the kitty half-time show. Also, our baby will be four-odd months old and fun to hold and kiss by then! So really, attend this party in 2010. You won't regret it!

I accidentally rode this today and it totally made my life.

do you think it's worth a look? [Nov. 23rd, 2008|05:58 pm]
You may or may not know this about me: for the past two years I've been attempting to read 50 new books per year. I made it to 42 in 2007, and I'm halfway through numbers 43, 44, and 45 right now for 2008. I've decided to change it up a little in 2009, and read along a theme. I will attempt to read all of the books/stories/plays portrayed in the 1990s PBS television program WIshbone

I've read a few already, and won't re-read them for this project unless I get through all the other source texts before 2010. I think there may be a book deal in this for me somewhere.

One thing this project has taught me is how to read books concurrently. I can have several non-fiction books and one novel going. It's just keeping simultaneous novels straight that messes with me. I admit I'm copping out a little as the year draws to a close by visiting the library every other day and choosing a "thin" book to fill my quota, but I've remained selective throughout the year. Currently, I'm deep into Bill Bryson's Made in America: An Informal History of the English Language in the United States, Scott Weidensaul's Living on the Wind: Across the Hemisphere with Migratory Birds, and Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. 

I'm thrilled to embark on this new mission. It may be more reading than I expect. I've got to do some research and get my book list ready. And perhaps I will be able to answer that burning and eternal question posed so jauntily by the show's opening theme: What's the story, Wishbone?

My nature blog, Bluebird of Friendliness, was chosen to participate in I and the Bird (issue #84 and a few weeks ago I was featured in issue #80), a semi-weekly blog carnival (with bloggers rotating the hosting duties) of the best bird writing. I was thrilled the first time I got in, but this time I am absolutely psyched because this round's host was Audubon Birscapes, the National Audubon Society's blog. I've already gotten about 50 hits since the issue came out yesterday. I love web traffic!
