Right now, I’m averaging about one post per month. Sheesh.

I swear to you, once upon a time, I was prolific blogger. I had (actually still have) a blog under another name, and I used to be on there, writing daily. Now, my goodness, I can’t even handle Twitter! (I’ll be back there again soon, but it’s waaaaay to easy for me to get distracted on there. Have I mentioned Nathan Fillion has a Twitter? Yeah…trust me, I can waste hours hitting refresh.)

Anyway, I’m still working on revisions to my draft of Princess Poltergeist, which is an all-absorbing task, but so far, I’m MUCH happier with this version. That being said, between writing and working, I’m not left with a lot of time for much else. (Hello to all of my friends who I never get to see anymore! I miss you!)

Except movies.

I tell myself this is because they serve double-duty as relaxation and time with my neglected husband, who also loves movies. Really, it’s just because I like to go, and sometimes I think if I stare at my computer screen for five more minutes, my brain will explode. Which would be bad. (I would no longer be tempting to zombies, *sniff*)

So, in the last month or so, we’ve seen:

New Moon–(My husband was one of three guys in the whole theater. Yes, he loves me.) Less sucky than first. Jacob is awesome!

The Blindside–Sandra Bullock still kicks *ss. Love her. Wasn’t expecting to laugh so hard at a movie that promised to be a deliberate tearjerker (which I hate, but I attended this one to make up for dragging husband to NM, and I LOVED it).

Sherlock Holmes–RDJ and JL are fabulous together. I’m not entirely certain what the story was about, but it didn’t matter. Holmes and Watson are the reason to see this one.

Avatar–Hello, Sam Worthington! I loved you in Terminator: Salvation. You were the only thing that saved that movie from being yanked out of our DVD player, fifteen minutes in. I wasn’t as bothered by the CGI as I thought I would be, having suffered through Jar-Jar Binks (yes, I do mean SUFFER.) I thought Zoe Saldana was fantastic and in honor of her, I have decided to snarl ferociously, as she did, whenever somebody says something I don’t like. (It should be noted here that one of my very first attempts fiction, when I was a kid, was a story about people who had cat ears and cat tails, though were otherwise humanoid.)

So that’s about it for now, I guess. I’d like to say there’ll be more in this space soon, but with my track record, we could easily be looking at February. πŸ™ So wherever you are, I hope you survived the holidays with good spirits intact, you’re staying warm, and 2010 is treating you well so far!

    Since I’m a teen librarian, I felt like I needed to see New Moon opening weekend-so I went with co-workers to the midnight showing. My husband lovingly came along and I think we were the only two that weren’t in love with it!:)

    The other movies I haven’t seen but need to-I’m so behind!

      There were definitely still some cringe-worthy moments in this one, but it was better than the first.

      Don’t know if you happened to catch the Twilight spoof on Saturday Night Live with Taylor Swift in the Bella role. What’s funny is I thought she, even in a parody of it, was more like what I’d imagined Bella to be than Kristen Stewart in the actual role!

      Of the movies we’ve seen, the one that I was really happiest about was The Blindside. (Shhh…don’t tell my husband, he’s already gloating!) I put up a fuss about going because I’m NOT a football fan and I hate movies that set out to make you cry. But this one was just truly well done. If you have to pick, I’d see that one. Or Avatar, just because that’s probably one you don’t want to miss on the big screen!

      Agreed! I love, love, LOVED that scene near the end where Jake and Neytiri are face to face! Won’t say more than that, b/c I don’t want to spoil it but you know what I mean, yes? *sigh* I <3 Sam Worthington!
