1. Spent yesterday in San Francisco getting my passport expedited. Easy peasy. All is set to go for us leaving tomorrow. Seriously, I had a 9:30 appointment, got there at 9:15, was out the door at 9:31 with instructions to come back and pick it up at 3.
2. In that interim, Craig and I went to the nearby mall. It was pouring rain yesterday, especially in the city, and windy to boot, so we were soaked by the time we got over there. Nice thing was, there was also a movie theater there so we went and saw True Grit. Loved it all the way until the epilogue that was totally extraneous and diluted the effect of the previous few minutes.
3. Bought headphones from Bose for my flight. Craig's had nice headphones for a few years and I can't use earbuds at all so I've been chomping for some.
4. Found a sushi place on the way back for a late lunch. It was good but not nearly as good as our local place.
5. American Idol. I won't spoil anybody about who's made it through or not, but I just want to go on the record for saying how much I love Steven Tyler. Love, love, love.
6. I'm just finishing up Three Days to Dead which I've really enjoyed. The second book didn't get nearly as good reviews, but I'm going to get it anyway. I tend not to be interested enough to follow with the second book in a lot of the UF series that I start so I'm taking that as a good sign. It always surprises me. A lot of the series people seem to love leave me cold. Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series, for instance. The heroine bored me to tears and yet, I know a lot of people absolutely love her and the books.
7. I wrote some three-sentence ficlets for ag_fics and now they are desperately looking for votes. Only 24 hours left, and it's the mini-challenge, so the ficlets are all three sentences only. There are 76 of them, though. They range from funny to smutty to angsty to cracky. But please, if you have time at all and like Arthur/Gwen, wander over and cast a vote.
8. pepperlandgirl4 and I had a release this week with Carina (Harlequin's e-imprint), a futuristic scifi m/m called Outcast Mine. I try not to pimp my original work here too much, but I have to tell you, I love this book. The reader reviews so far have been really positive, too, which is so gratifying.
