Day tripping

Friday, May 27, 2005

I'm headed across the border for the day tomorrow, so no posts. Today I met my good friend Manfred for dinner. The boy is nuts for the movie THE NOTEBOOK and has been *hounding* me for weeks to see it. (He's only seen it once and knows the dialogue, which he quoted over our stone-baked pizzas--that's how much it affected him.) So guess what he brings to dinner? Yup, the DVD, with orders that I *must* watch it before we have diner next week. I'm just not a chick-flick chic. I wanna see The Longest Yard this Sunday, depending on how much energy I have left after the road trip tomorrow.

Oh, just remember something funny; Manfred and I stopped into Indigo/Chapters and I picked up three books- Jade Lee's Hungry Tiger (I enjoyed her last two books), Karen Harper's Dark Angel (I haven't had much luck with MIRA books, but this one looks good.), and Three-Way. ;-). So we get to the check out, the CSR starts sliding a bookmark into each book as he's ringing up the sale and when he got to the erotica, I wanted to say: "Don't bother; the stickiness will mark my spot."

But I refrained. heh.

Then when I told Manfred as we left the store, he despaired about taking me out in public. Like I'm the one who has a thing for THE NOTEBOOK. yecch.

Anywho, time for a writing update. The laptop has helped tremendously; best decision I ever made to buy it. But I'm still hitting snags with my output. For instance, I wasted hours today on a prologue that just wouldn't come, until I finally decided it was a wash. And I'm in the middle of dialogue that isn't as 'directed' as I'd like. On the other hand, the synopsis revealed a pretty strong story. I guess it's just been stewing in my subconscious for the past several months, ever since I put it aside to work on Odil and Zoe's story.

I'm very proud f you for refraining. LOL ALthough if I was there I would've told you to say it. LOL

I still really want to read Odil's story, so I hope you plan on finishing it up. Like soon. (was that suggestion subliminal enough?)

Hope you have a great trip!

I just love The Notebok! The movie didn't do the book justice, but I think that if I had not read the book first, I would have fallen in love with the movie just as much.

Oops, that should be THE NOTEBOOK. Sheesh...where is my coffee....
