For those of you who knew who this was, Gene Pitney died while on tour in GB. (In case the subject line wasn’t hint enough, he was a singer/songwriter, most well known for that song).
Work has been a roller coaster of insanity, but I’m trying to remain zen about all of it. Today, that’s working better than it was yesterday.
My DVD of Brokeback Mountain arrived today, so w00t! I’ve spent the majority of today listening to Rufus on the iPod – hooked up to my speakers and just chilling while I work on catching up on daily stuff. I could get used to this. Have scheduled Friday as “work from home” day, so I’m very happy about that. Nothing like rolling out of bed at the last minute to start working. ::g::
Didn’t watch House last night, but am looking forward to more roommate fun with the boys. hee!
Current issue of Sci-Fi magazine has a lovely article and some photos from the upcoming Dresden Files, a series pilot based on Jim Butcher’s books. I’m looking forward to this. I first met Jim a few years ago, just as the first audio was released (Storm Front) , he was and is a fabulous writer and interview subject. I’ve loved the Harry Dresden books from the start and have hooked at least 8 or 9 people in my office to the series. My book pimping is an awesome thing. ::g:: (but I learned from the best, right, allaboutm_e?
On the writing front – I’m working on the query/synopsis of Matters to get that back out in the world, plus I have an idea for another book/series that I’m toying with. I do want to eventually get the 2nd book of the Blood Lines universe finished, too. I wish there was more time in the day/week/month and more energy. With work being as soulsucking as it’s been, it’s really really tough to make my brain work for fiction writing. I’m hoping that the energy from the upcoming cons (Malice and Mayhem) will help. I usually come back from those with a renewed sense of purpose.
