3D glasses are swiftly gaining on lumpy matresses in the Great List of Thing I Want To Jump Up And Down On. Not in the least because these ones were slimy. And my hair stuck to them.
Not that I really noticed. I was too busy trying to contain my inner fangirl in front of a theatre full of people.
To all who haven't seen it yet: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is incredible. See it as soon as you can because, believe me, it will be worth it.
To all those who have: I want a giant elk. Moose. Whatever that thing is. You know what I mean.
I really shouldn't have been reading The Silmarillion that morning, either. Picked up on so many references. Peter Jackson, I salute you. Charley's dignity, farewell.
Yes. Sorry. Squeaking over now.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas time - I'm betting several of you had a situation similar to me, which constituted the arrival of multiple family members, copious amounts of food, and such a wonderful time that you didn't even open up your laptop for several days.
This is usually the point where I would say "and now we're back with our regularly scheduled funtimes!". Regretably, it will not be.
Because I'm going skiing. Tomorrow. For a week.
And it's going to be awesome. I promise I'll bring back what pictures I can get, and I apologise profusely for lack of things like reviews and Writerly Tips (I promise I'll get back onto those very soon!). Life distracted me far more than I thought it would. Sorry.
But let's finish on a very very good note: the first 25 chapters of St Mallory's Forever! are open on my screen, and we're going through what we hope might be our final edits. Miriam and I like the idea of January the 22nd for a release date, and I will do my best to ensure it is so. We'll both keep you posted on that.
In the meantime, enjoy your New Year, and all the best from me!
