Woo hoo! Blogging from my laptop at the library. The bigs wanted to come volunteer again, and I figured if I brought the laptop, I could procrastinate some more writing. I didn't think there was a wireless network here, but lo and behold, there is!
Last night we watched The Peacemaker which, while well-acted, had a lot of military and technological shortcomings. I found it somewhat entertaining, but failed to see what was unique enough about it for anyone to buy the script. Snotty aren't I? It wasn't the acting or cinematography that fell short, IMO, just the story. Very predicatble, very blasé. Oh well. I've got some more filmmaking notes, anyway, as a result, so it's not wasted time. Tonight it's either Count of Monte Cristo or House of Sand and Fog. I couldn't tell a thing about the latter from the back of the case, but it was free (library) so I figured I'd try it.
Yesterday a man gave candy to my 2 big girls here at the library. Fortunately they were smart enough to not eat it and to tell me right away. He was a grandpa type, so part of me is glad that they thanked him and were polite, but part of me is concerned. :0/ We talked about it and I made sure that they know that they never have to be polite if someone grabs them. They will kick hard and high, or right where counts most. I'm glad they're strong and good kickers from TKD.
Sluggie just showed up with half her face plastered (a la Phantom) in leftover sticker edges from their project and began singing Past the Point of No Return, LOL! Their project was to put instruction stickers on a stack of flyers for a reading program. I guess she put the leftover bits to a creative use. Now I have PONR stuck in my head.
Sheila, I brought one of your brown CDs to the library so they could catalogue it and put it out. The blue one's been here for over a year - maybe close to 2. :o)
Well, I've procrastinated long enough. TTFN!
