Week in Short

I got my Christmas in July today. I got to talk to two online friends I hadn't seen in awhile, I got an invitation for a reunion with family I wasn't even aware I had (still not going), and my information for one of my top-choice colleges arrived in the mail. My mom bought bacon and apple juice at the store. Oh, and I got new headphones. =D Great ending to a great week.

OMG OMG OMG NEW DEATHLY HALLOWS TRAILER! If you haven't seen it, go watch it. Now. No, really. I watched it five times the day it came out and I still get goosebumps. SO...EPIC... Can someone say Best. Movie. EVER?

The Last Airbender came out in theaters today!!!!! If you're not familiar with this movie, it's based on the Nickelodeon TV series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. Yes, I am more excited for Airbender than I am for Eclipse. =D

In other movie news, Eclipse came out on Wednesday. I have heard that it is good, but I'll wait until it comes out on DVD. If I could, I'd probably go just to see the DH trailer on the big screen.

In non-movie-related news, the Bulwer-Lytton worst opening sentence award results are in! And they are hilarious. =D [The runner-up is my favorite.]

Unlikeable female protagonists

ARML -- third draft is complete which means I've finished up all my small plot revisions. I'm now working on the fourth draft which involves larger plot revisions. It's going kind of slow because I have to read through all the chapters whether they're involved in the revision or not just to double-check and make sure everything's lined up correctly.

Summer Fling 37k. Coming along slowly because most of my concentration seems to be on ARML at the moment. I'll get right on that.

Fire -- On hold while I trying to figure out what to do with it.

After the Jump -- On hold for Summer Fling

Everyone have a fantastic weekend!
