In Movies:

  • Stardust -- Loved this movie!! Loved the fantasy and Tristan's evolution as a character. Though Captain Shakespeare was still my favorite. 9.5/10
  • Dirty Dancing -- Older movie, but definitely a classic. Loved it. I don't know how I've never managed to see it before. 10/10
  • Cutting Edge: Fire and Ice (rewatch) -- I'm not quite sure why I've seen this movie as many times as I have, but it never gets old. 8/10
  • Some Kind of Wonderful (rewatch) -- I love this movie so much. It was made in 1987, but it's definitely a timeless classic. 10/10
In Writing:
Revisions are in progress for Burning Bridges. Currently checking into ways I can get my entire manuscript printed without having to do it at home. Meanwhile, I have a couple of new ideas bouncing around inside my brain.

Everyone have a great weekend and I'll see you on Monday!

Stardust is an AWESOME movie! It's a wonderful book, too, although Captain Shakespeare isn't in it.
