A Few Odds and Ends for Your Tuesday Viewing Pleasure

Some random thoughts this morning:

1. I saw the movie "300" over the weekend. It got rave reviews, but I didn't really like it. Lots of yelling and warriors fighting and blood and gore. Cool special effects, though.

2. I made Liz's Taco Pie for dinner last night and it was a hit with hubby (with me, too). Thanks for the recipe!

3. Last night was the first time all year I didn't bring home work from school. I had two whole hours in the evening in which to write - I didn't even know what to do with myself!!

4. Only 5 weeks until Christmas. 5 weeks! I haven't even started my shopping...

Current Word Count for Entwined: 3800

Yesterday's Fave Sentence: He bends over the playpen, enraptured by the way her tiny eyelashes fall against her cheeks, the way her tiny lips part with breath, the way nothing about this life has touched her yet, and he thinks he could spend a lifetime standing over her, watching her sleep.

WTG on the word count and I love your favorite sentences.

Have a good Tuesday.

Awww... sweet sentence. I was thrown a bit by the present tense, though, lol. I am ever a creature of habit.

I never wanted to see "300" for exactly the reasons you noted.

Yeah, writing in present tense is a shift for me, too. But I wanted to try it, and I gotta say, it's rather freeing...

I've loved your favorite sentences so far. Congrats on the word count.

I think I'm going to try that taco pie. Looks easy peasy.

Liz said...

Glad you liked the taco pie! Nice sentence - and a great idea for your blog.
I wasn't thrilled with 300 either. Looking forward to the movie Australia with Hugh Jackman (long sigh...)
