What a great day! Mom came early this morning and picked up MiniBear and Oldest. I ran around setting the dishes washing, made the beds, and picked up the toys out of the den before making my way to the closet to pick out something to wear. I ended up in cut-offs and flip flops - c'est chic! - and a smocked navy shirt. Hubby took the windows off the Jeep, so at the last minute I ran back in the house and grabbed a hairband and a pony tail holder. I don't like hair flapping around my face.
We drove up to Ruston and watched Hellboy 2 - what a fun movie! It starts out with John Hurt telling Hellboy (as a child) about a golden army created by fae/goblin folk in order to destroy humans. But, the army was automated and felt no remorse so it killed everything and anyone - men, women, children. And the fae/goblin king split up his golden crown, which is needed to control the army. The king's son decides he's had enough with what humanity has done to earth, etc. so he sets out to bring the pieces of the crown back together to summon the sleeping army and destroy humanity.
I loved this movie. Yes, it's campy, and a little predictable in places, but I don't care. Ron Pearlman is awesome as Hellboy, and John Hurt - well, they had me at hello with John Hurt, even though he's only there for the "prologue" to the movie. I'd watch him read the phone book and be happy with it. He's one of my favorite actors ever. I don't want to spoil the movie for anyone who might want to watch this. I'll just say there is more going on there. Luv secrets and all that. ^_^
Onto other things! I finished cleaning up Chapter 4 of my Bites story last night. I was a bit tired when I closed Word, so I'm going to read over it one last time before I jet that one off to my CP tonight. Hopefully I won't come across anything that I've missed. I'm ready to start on that track to the ending.
Tonight, in continuation of the MMC anniversary celebration, we're hosting a chat tonight at the MMC chat room: www.midnightmooncafe.com/chat . Cassandra Curtis, Tempest Knight, and I will be there, and we hope you'll drop by to say hello! Prizes will be given out, and there will also be all the usual hi-jinks! ;) You don't want to miss this chat!
My contest from yesterday is still live. All you have to do to be entered to win is post between now and Friday at Midnight! Strangely enough I've received a couple of email entries for this, so I'm thinking what with the low participation, I'll give away a prize from email entries, and a prize from those posted directly. That way I can still give out two prize packs. If enough people enter, I'll toss in a third prize to sweeten the pot. Deal? Again, winners will be drawn at random Friday at midnight, so there's still time to enter.
That's it for me. I need to grab a bite to eat before the chat starts. I hope you all had a snazzy Thursday! :)
