C.J. Parker (fuguemacabre)
is a friend of mine and a Louisiana author. Yesterday marked the release of book two in Charlotte's wonderful paranormal mystery series. I enjoyed her first book Fugue Macabre: Ghost Dance
and can't wait to read Bone Dance
, but before diving in I thought I'd take a second to tell everyone about Charlotte's series. Check it out at Amazon.com
or at her publisher Sapphire Blue Publishing
. Charlotte is also responsible for bringing the 2010 EPIC Con to New Orleans. http://www.epic-conference.com/

I'm watching Season Two of Psych. I love Shawn Spencer's weird obsession with hair.

Ponyo was utterly delightful. I don't think there is a better word. It was pretty and it made me laugh. True laughter. Not snide giggles or snickers. It was loosely based, as someone mention to me before going in, on The Little Mermaid. I was leery as that story ends bad. But not Ponyo. I keep coming back to delightful. My friend and I were the only people in the show, yet the rest of the theater was PACKED. That made me said. Reminder: If you like seeing Studio Ghibli films close to home -- you must pay to see them in a theater. The other part of me was glad we had the places to ourselves, because we could be unrestrained in our laughter and excitement. We clapped and cheered.

I just finished all of Torchwood season one. I liked it a lot. I like all the Main Characters -- its a good group. I think I imagined some of them differently from reading the books. And, I haven't completely made up my mind about the Owen character. Season One and Three cost as much to download as season two by itself so--- is it really going to mess things up if I just skip to season 3?

: Post a sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick.) No context, no explanations.
So here are my WIPs:
1) “Excuse me Ms. Witing, but there is quite a crowd in the lobby,” an assistance said popping in to the room.
2) Egan followed her into the bathroom and watched her as she inspected the cut on her forhead.
3) It was hard to let that smile go, even though it wasn’t for me, but I wanted to see his clothes.
4) An hour later, the two maids through alternating tales had managed to recap four years and cook a delicious meal to feed their guest.
5)“Yeah well knowing in theory isn’t the same thing as living with it.”
This was fun. I haven't opened some of these files in way too long.

I have a very long list of blogs in my Newz Crawler and more and more I find myself just glossing over the information. So in attempt to find new and different things, I've deleted the lot of them (that's a lie -- I kept the handful of people I know personally). Today is either the beginning of more free time or more random web surfing.

I received a book of Hart Crane's work in the mail yesterday. I know it was on my wishlist, I just can no longer remember why. See I follow links... all sorts of links, and then a book catches my eye. It goes on to the wishlist (which is 500+ books long), then I forget why its there, waiting for it to show up.
So without further explanation, I give you Hart Crane (well a stanza anyway):
Out in the late amber afternoon,
Confused among chrysanthemums,
Her parasol, a pale balloon,
Like a waiting moon, in shadow swims.
