Friday Favorites, Fantasy Art & A Funny...

Woohoo! Friday! I'm almost done with my first round of edits. I should be sending my changes back to the editor no later than Sunday. Keep your fingers crossed that I accomplish this goal.

Favorite Books/Authors:

One book I remember reading as a kid was 'Watership Downs' by Richard Adams. My mom and I both enjoyed that book immensely. While living in Tucson, we'd go for a walk around a track in the summer at night and we'd see rabbits happily munching grass with one always alert at the edge of the green. Like a little furry sentinel. It would always bring up an image of the rabbits in the book. That was the first book she and I could agree on. Others came later on, but that was the best. I still see rabbits with the same behavioral patterns that remind me of that book. It's quite nice.

Favorite Movies:

Iron Man! I have enjoyed both Iron Man one and two. Robert Downey, Jr. has always been one of my favorite actors. Okay, so he ranks right up there with Johnny Depp and Billy Zane. During Downey's bad years, I silently cheered for him to get help and get away from all the crap he got into. He's an awesome actor, in my opinion and I think they couldn't have picked anyone better to portray Iron Man!

Favorite Music:

Blink 182! Yes, I love some of these goofy bands. I only say goofy because it seems like I got interested in the bands when my kids were teeny boppers and exploring what was cool to listen to and what wasn't. Most of the music I learned about first and then passed it on. Hope they got 'cool' points for their taste in music, even if they didn't give me credit for introducing them to it to their friends.

Fantasy Art:


And the funny!!


I absolutely need one! All right everyone, have a great weekend! What are your plans for the holiday weekend?

A co-worker and I have a sarcasm plant in the office. No one understands us. Or it.

I could definitely do with a sarcasm sign. It'd solve so many problems.

I read Watership Down for the first time a while ago, and really enjoyed it. Robert Downey Jr. is always a blast, I agree!

Hi Pat! Welcome! I most definitely need a sarcasm sign. I should make one to carry with me. XD
