Thursday Ramblings - April 29, 2010

It's been awhile since I've written a rambling. My writing has been a little slow lately. I do have over 5,000 words written on a YA novel called "The Doorbell."

For the last few nights, I've been watching "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" on DVD. All seven seasons have been sitting on my shelf for months. I'm just now getting around to watching them. I was a big fan of the show when it was originally on. I had every show recorded on VHS. I guess now I can get rid of the tapes. 

I've been working on a few cross stitching projects too. Yes, I'm a straight guy who likes to cross stitch. I know it's a little weird, but it's a harmless hobby, and I make really neat gifts for my family and friends.

I found "Superman III" DVD at my local thrift shop for a $1.50. It had never been opened. I've never been a big fan of the Superman movies, and had only seen the third movie once. It's a little darker than the first two movies, but it's better than the unwatchable fourth movie.

I saw "New Moon" several weeks ago. It's horrible! It's worse than "Twilight." I bought "Avatar" last week. I never got a chance to see the movie in the theaters. The movie is overrated. Don't get me wrong, there are some great special effects in it, but there is no plot. "The Company" from earth invades Pandora for the mineral rock, and they try to kill the blue aliens living there.

Other movies I've collected lately are: "Sherlock Holmes," "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel," "The Stepfather," and "The Transporter 1&2." "Sherlock Holmes" - Okay, but disappointing. "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel" - Horrible sequel. "The Stepfather" - Okay thriller. "The Transporter" - Great action movie. "The Transporter 2" - Not as good as the first but it has some great fight scenes.

A friend sent me two books, "The Business of Writing for Children" by Aaron Shepard and "The Writer's Guide to Crafting Stories for Children" by Nancy Lamb. I received the book "Edge of Apocalypse" by Tim LaHaye & Craig Parshall, and "The Anonymous Bride" by Vickie McDonough in the mail this week. 

I just finished reading the book "Plan B" by Pete Wilson. My review for the book will be published on May 3rd.
