a post of many items

May 7, 2010

So I watched Iron Man last night in preparation for seeing Iron Man 2 tonight.  Dang, that is a really, really good superhero movie.  You know what I like?  I like that Tony has a really competent posse.  I love competent characters.  I may have a tiny crush on Agent Coulson.  I have no idea what to expect from the new one.  I’ll let you know what I think after I see it tonight.

I’ve sent off the contracts for a French edition of the first three Kitty books.  A few people have been asking whether this was going to happen, so there’s your answer.

A new anthology is out:  Running With the Pack, which includes my story “Wild Ride,” which is T.J.’s origin story.

And an update on Projects!:

I finished Jeanne Marie’s banner, and there was much rejoicing.

Also, I’ve been spinning, and I’m definitely getting better.  These are both merino wool — I did the white first, then I did three colors randomly mixed together just to see what would happen.  I’m now in the process of learning how to knit.  God help me.

    Dang. Wish I thought about Running With the Pack while I was out. Picked up Little Women and Werewolves instead.

    Oh…and stay thru the end credits…..

    Well, that’s a given after “I want to tell you about the Avenger Initiative.”

    Did you spindle the yarn, or do you have a wheel?

    I am really looking forward to the IronMan. We’ll see it after the hubbub has died back a bit, though I’d love to see it tonight, too. If I’d had today off, I’d have gone to first showing….dadgum work….

    Meant to say looking forward to seeing the NEW IronMan…sigh….

    I just saw it. I think it was good, although I kept waiting to see more. It seemed like it was short, but I know that’s just a perception thing. It moved along pretty well, and they managed to keep Sam Jackson from dropping an mf-bomb. Stay through the credits, of course, and see if you can spot a bit of a cameo from a prop.

    Good stuff.

    I’ve seen the German editions a while ago and I really like the look of them. I’m not sure if I want to read them, since I have only minor problems with the original ones (language wise). Congrats on the French translations.

    The yarn looks great. Any ideas as what you’d like to make with them?

    Chris,
    Little Women and Werewolves? Sounds great. I’ve just listened to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, queueing Sense and Sensibility Sea Monsters. I wonder which classic they pick out for the Vampires.

    It was spun on a drop spindle — I don’t really have room for a wheel. Also, drop spindle = portable.

    I’d like to try a wheel someday, but I’m still not sure spinning is something I’m going to make a real hobby out of.

    I just read T.J.’s story. I loved it. I have always thought that he was a really great character.
