+ I've been quite absent from LJ lately. It's a lack of time rather than a lack of love. I do still try to comment when I can, but that's not nearly as often as I'd like. I still love you all though!

+ I also love public holidays, days off work, my Wii Fit, sexy pictures of Callum Keith Rennie, sexy pictures of David Hewlett, and cheesy young adult fiction.

+ Speaking of which, has anyone read Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series? I recently finished the second book, and I'm a little bit in love with them. The writing isn't particularly great; it feels a bit like reading the diary of teenage girl, but they're incredibly addictive and entertaining.

+ In not so good news, my doggie has to have surgery next week (on the 24th). :( She's had lots of trouble with her dewclaws, so she's getting them removed. Apparently it's a very simple procedure, but I still worry about my sweet Gracey. I hope it all goes well.

As part of my 101 things in 1001 days project, I'm reading 100 books. I've just finished the 10th, and have decided that it'd be fun to write a little something about each of them. (I got a little carried away with my summary for Hard Core Roadshow, and when I say "a little carried away", I mean "completely carried away and couldn't stop writing!").

2. Orson Scott Card - Xenocide )

I've been reading a lot of stories from people who've survived the bush fires in Victoria, and I'm finding it so hard to hold back the tears. It's all so devastating. Fire scares me so much...

So anyway, I need to focus on happier things for a while:

+ The weather here is finally cooler!

+ My copy of Hard Core Roadshow arrived today! I can read more of Noel being a complete tool Noel's love for Hugh and jealousy towards Callum the making of the movie.

+ I'm going to this. Jensen, Jared and Misha! I can't wait!

My copy of Michael Turner's book "Hard Core Logo" finally arrived. I couldn't put it down, and read the whole thing in one sitting. More under the cut )

PS I made a new HCL icon. *points*

Day 6 of the "things that make me happy" meme:

+ I'm still LOVING my new found Hard Core Logo obsession, and have been reading excerpts from Hard Core Roadshow: A Screenwriter's Diary (*).
+ I went out for yummy Indian food with some good friends.
+ We had Christmas crackers, and I got another bad joke that I found far too funny! (**)
+ My dad came over and mowed my grass this morning.
+ I got a Christmas card in the mail from [personal profile] sgflutegirl. Thanks hon! *hugs*
+ I found my left over Christmas wrapping paper from last year. (***)
+ I received a message from one of my US tour buddies. Another person from our tour is coming to Adelaide, so a few of us are going to catch up. Should be fun!
+ Tomorrow is my last day of work for the year!
