I was doing really well at buckling down and writing while the girls are asleep, but then Jessica Day George quoted Oscar on Twitter and there went my productivity out the window.
So now I’m here to offer you some distractions from your work. Aren’t I nice?
First off: fully-clothed female superheroes. I abhor the scanty outfits, and Mike Lunsford’s designs are brilliant. With the possible exception of Wonder Woman. Not sure what’s going on with the khaki pants there. But still much preferable to her incredibly uncomfortable-looking metal bathing suit.
Also, Oscar. Go watch it if you don’t know what I’m talking about, if only for the sake of seeing Tim Curry as an awkward linguist. If you aren’t crying laughing by the end of it, we can’t be friends anymore. And apparently YouTube has it in German, if that’s your thing, though it’s really missing out on Sylvester Stallone’s gangster accent.
Also, have you ever started reading a book, and you really didn’t like it, but you couldn’t put it down? SO frustrating. And the stupid thing is, when I finished the book, none of my ebook holds were ready from the library, so I checked out the sequel. What is wrong with me?! All I want is to read Son of Neptune! Is that too much to ask?
Okay. Your turn. What’s distracted you today?
Not writing because I’m working on family history and DNA comparisons. It’s a slippery slope!
I need to rewatch Oscar. And friends reminded me of Corinna, Corinna this weekend, and I need to see that again. Library, here we come!
Family history sucks you in! And I haven’t seen Corinna, Corinna for ages, I’ll have to find a copy to watch!
Pokemon. ‘Nough said. *cries*
Haha, yes! I still have all my cards from back when Mew and Mewtwo were the last Pokemon. The husband doesn’t understand why I can’t let them go, but my nieces and nephews think I’m super cool. 🙂
Patricia Briggs’ latest Mercedes Thompson (now Hauptman) book. And I really need to work on my WIP so it’s ready to submit in a couple months. I should know better… At least it’s not Jim Butcher 🙂
