Apparently, I do not keep up on my fantasy author news. Did you know that Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth series has just become a TV show? I didn’t, not until I saw the re-release paperbacks (now with a trendy TV cover… yay.).
I also didn’t know about the Sookie Stackhouse show until I saw it on the re-release new covers. I suppose that it’s ok. I do know, however, that HBO have given the go-ahead on filming the pilot for George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire (SQEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!), but other than that, I am apparently on the outs of books-into-film news.
In other news, I have three blog posts written in my head, but I’m having a hard time spewing them out into the cyber world. Each time I sit down to type, I’m all “oooh, shiney” and run off (online) doing other things. It’s slightly frustrating because I enjoy writing blog posts, and discussing the things that are rattling around in my brain. I think that if I could get some dedicated blogging time, where my mind is sharp and with it (ie. not at 11 pm), maybe I could get it out. But not tonight, oh, not tonight.
On a personal note, things around here have been quiet. We enjoyed a nice weekend away with a bunch of friends from church for a couples’ retreat. It was a nice time of refocusing and relaxing. I only cried about leaving Kitten behind a little bit. She did really well staying with Rob’s parents. Presently, she’s trying to cut her second top tooth (seriously, we STILL only have 3 teeth… 15.5 months old!), and has a runny nose and diaper rash. She says all sorts of new things all the time, like the other day she said “love you” after I said it to her. It was super cute, even though I’m well aware that she doesn’t really know what it means yet. It’s still cute to hear her say it.
