I'm trying to think of an intro for this post that isn't boring, but haven't managed so far....
I took an actual walk yesterday - woohoo! even better, my knee hasn't attacked me for it. Maybe there's hope for me after all. I have an appointment with an orthopedist next week, so we'll see what happens there.
This is a pic of Pokey from a few days ago. I love kitty yawns. My, what big teeth. This is fabric for my current sewing project, which I have been sadly neglecting.
What else have I been up to? Got a package from EQuilter and discovered (again) what a pinhead I am. Instead of entering a half yard as .5 I managed to get five freaking yards. sigh. It's there on my order form. How can I not have noticed how much I was paying for that half yard??? D'oh. I'm going to keep it - got a lot of border fabric for something or other now. Just wish it had been a fabric I loved instead of liked.
Geeking out for the rest of the post... I read an awesome book, Patrick Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind. I bought it because of blurbs from Tad Williams and Robin Hobbs, two of my favorite authors. Excellent epic fantasy that just sucked me right in. Go to the author's website to read an excerpt and reviews. Now I'm just cranky that the sequel won't be out until next April.
I checked out Patrick's blog and what was the first entry? The awesomeness of Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog. Wooohooo.
Have you seen Dr Horrible yet? Completely and totally worth the wait. The first two acts are available and the third one will be out Saturday. It'll only be up for free until 20 July, so don't delay.
The show is so much fun. It helps that I love sci-fi musicals. I love singing along to my Rocky Horror Picture Show and Little Shop of Horrors soundtracks. And Dr. Horrible is one step better - superheroes!!! And blogging. Seriously, try it, you've got nothing to lose and it's a lot of fun.
I will be buying the DVD. Just hope Horrible really does become a Broadway musical - what a hoot. And a full-length movie. fingers crossed, folks.
