When you have too much time on your hands, there are a lot of things you want to do. Mine ranged from organising stuff to mending clothes to thinking of business opportunities. I even thought of writing some fiction just for the heck of it. 🙂
This is sooooo good. The first time I tasted this was when someone gave it as a “souvenir” from a trip to Japan. Tried looking for it here in Manila but they did not have any. Then, found this in Hong Kong but was not able to buy any to bring home. Now my sister tells me they have it at Family Mart and in a bigger bag. Time to do the grocery…
Six of my favorite authors on the list! Way to go Kim Harrison, Vicki Pettersson, Patricia Briggs, Jim Butcher, Charlaine Harris and Laurell K. Hamilton!
Barnes and Noble has come out with their top twenty paranormal fantasy novels of the last decade, and FOR A FEW DEMONS MORE, the Hollows debut into hardcover in 2007, has made not only the list, but took the top spot! The list was compiled by Paul Goat Allen, one of the top reviewers of the genre, who had been keeping his pulse on the expanding, ever changing, wonderful oddness of what makes up urban fantasy for longer than I can remember. Being here is an honor.
Go on over and check out the list. It feels really good to be rubbing shoulders with the peers in my field, but there are a few titles there that I’ve not heard of, and I’m going to have to check them out. And drop in a comment while you’re there! Everyone likes to be appreciated, even reviewers.
I saw two movies this week: “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift” and “Magic Mike.”
I saw some cool movies over the weekend and earlier this week.
First was “Bridesmaids” on HBO last Sunday. It was a fun and funny film. It validates the age-old BEST FRIENDS ARE FOREVER saying. No matter if you see each other everyday or once in a while, a true friend picks up where you always left off.
