I can't believe it's Christmas eve! (Aw yeah, check out my festive rhyming skillz.) I hope everyone is prepared for the onslaught of food and merriment. I've been working hard to lose a few lbs this past month, just so I can put them all back on during the week between Xmas and New Year. Plan!
So my main goal for the next few days is this: write, write, read, and write. Re-write an older story that needs attention, and work on the idea for my next new story. Of course, there will be the usual festivities with the immediate family, and I'm hoping to catch up with a couple of friends online, too. But I also see the following week, when it's generally more quiet everywhere, as a chance to sit down without too many distractions and fingercrunch some words. Anyone else going to be writing through the holidays?
I am so close to finishing Merlin
series 3, just two more episodes to go. I missed most of the episodes when they were on, and the last four or five I didn't even catch on the BBC iPlayer. Merlin
is a great little show and I enjoy it, but it's not a keeper, and it's not strong enough to grab me and latch on as it's done to a few of my friends. It was nice seeing Harry Melling in episode 11, although it took me a few minutes to figure out he was Dudley in the Harry Potter
films. He's lost so much weight!
Speaking of Merlin, a good friend of mine saw Colin Morgan in Covent Garden the other day buying waffles. I don't know why but I pictured this in character and in costume. Arthurian waffles—a taste fit for a king!
Even though I'll be around tomorrow, I'm going to wish those who celebrate it a MERRY CHRISTMAS
now, just in case I don't get around to updating. And if you don't celebrate Xmas, have a lovely day anyway with whatever you're doing! ♥† Photo pilfered from comedy-zone.net.
