Movie Mania


I’m over at the Whine Sisters today chatting on about the movies I saw this weekend. Come on by and share the last movie you saw, or what you want to see!

Wherein I gripe about being underwhelmed by what's "coming soon" to a theater near me…

“Sadly, there aren’t that many movies hitting the screen that I’m excited about anymore. I’m not sure if it’s the state of Hollywood or the fact that I’m not 21 anymore (though just barely past that, of course). But I’ve been to a couple recently, and that means I’ve seen trailers. And most of the… Read more »

Shout out for the weekend!

It’s Friday, I’m almost caught up with catching up, the girls have been rocking at their school work, and so we’re starting the weekend early! So what’s on today’s agenda?

Whining about my sordid past…

I’m blogging about my sordid past over at the Whine Sisters today! I’ve been doing a lot of rearranging in my garage these days, and in the process, I came across the picture to the left.

Just a little demonic tease….


Cross your fingers if you’re a fan of Kate and her demon-huntin’ ways (for that matter, cross your fingers even if you aren’t; I mean, I’m not proud).  Got some really cool news re the Carpe Demon movie.  I can’t say anything more now–and as I’ve said before, I won’t say it’s done until I’m… Read more »



My husband and I have been hosting an Adaptations book club for a couple of years now. I’m going to try to keep a running list of the books on a page in this blog, and post info re the books we’re reading (and then watching). Tomorrow’s book is Enemies: A Love Story and I’m… Read more »

Kari, we blew it!


Back in the halcyon days of high school, when life was perfect and there was no stress and happy thoughts ran like wild bunnies through the tall grass… Oh, wait. Okay, back in high school, my best friend Kari and I had an imaginary companion. This is not as strange as it sounds, and I… Read more »

Indiana Jones and the status quo


I’ve been listening to some tapes on story craft, and something in one of them recently struck me. In a nutshell, the instructor was talking about the first act, and how in the set-up, we see the hero in their ordinary life–the status quo. Then, per the Hero’s Journey, Joseph Campbell, Vogler, and basic story… Read more »
