so... for some reason today (maybe the fact that i'm seeing the 5th movie in a few hours, and the next book is coming out in a week and a half), i felt like working on my novel length story, Outside Our World.  i've actually had the next chapter finished for.... over a year... but i wasn't happy with it, so i never posted it.  there were quite a few things i wanted to change in the previous chapters, from how the boys reacted to certain things, and to make details a bit clearer.  so i just spent most of the afternoon going back through the first 6 (posted) chapters and revamping them, though a couple of them i only changed little things.  i don't have time tonight to do chapter 7 (the unposted one), cause i gotta go take a nap so i'm rested for the movie, plus i have a REALLY long day of work tomorrow.  i'm thinking that this will help me get back into the groove of writing a bit though, which would be nice.  now that i've changed some of the things from my other chapters, i think it will be easier to make the chapter 7 changes and then go from there.  hopefully this week i will be sending this stuff off to my betas for them to redo, and make sure i didn't screw anything up too badly. 

so yeah... that's what i did today. i'm surprised i could concentrate, because i'm sooo friggen excited to see the movie!  it's pouring down rain here right now, lightning, thunder, and all, so i'm hoping that the line isn't soo incredibly long tonight when i get there that i have to wait outside.  that would blow.  we had to do that for PoTC3 and it wasn't fun. 

okay... time for a nap.

So... some movies I've watched recently and I feel like telling you about them.  All the reviews below have slight spoilers.

Knocked Up



OMG... only a few days until HP OoTP movie!  I'm sooo excited!  Of course, Josh will be out of town for training, so guess who I get to go with?  My sister... but oh... just not my sister.  3 of her friends too!  So basically it's like me... the 22 year old chaperone, with 4 high schoolers. Gah.  At least they are all Harry Potter fans, and most of them have read the books, which is more than I can say for Josh.  He doesn't ready ANYTHING. 
so yeah..  i was bored a few weeks ago and i decided to make an AMV for Ai no Kusabi, and i just realized that i never put the link up.  it's the first one i've ever made.. well technically 2nd, but it's a remake of my first one (i was using the OLD SCHOOL Windows Movie Maker, and i got a new program from my sister so i redid it).  but yeah... i feel in the sharing mood today, so there ya go.

click on the link and it will take you to youtube to watch it!

up, up and away!

i won't object if you let me know what you think of it too. lol. 

other than that... i REALLY have about a million phone calls i need to return and people i need to talk to, but i have really felt kinda off this last week cause of the meds for my finger, and it hasn't helped that it's been crazy busy cause josh started the new job this week, so he's out of town, and will be for most of the next month except weekends.  so it's kinda lonely around the house too.  i've been reading a lot of books, and once i finish my current one, i need to finish rereading the last 3rd of HP OoTP so i can make sure i'm up on the facts (for the nitpicking of the movie).  lol.  and Raven... i owe you a very long phone call soon, and i hope to god that we get a chance to chat b4 you go back home for the wedding and stuff.  and i still owe you a bday present, lol.  though i found something new i might be getting you, rather than my original idea... so we'll see :-)

okay.. so i was reading an article, and i came across this.  it's in reference to JKR talking about fanfic and how it doesn't bother her at all that people love her characters enough to write them in their own stories, but doesn't exactly condone 'hard R' type of stuff, and then it makes a comment about some of the websites that have slash fic.  the next paragraph said this...

In the fall of 2006, Jason Isaacs, who plays Lucius Malfoy in the Potter films, said that he has read fan fiction about his character; he said he gets "a huge kick out of the more far-out stuff."[34]

that just made me 'omg' sooo loudly, and now i'm laughing my ass off.  i hope to god what he read includes slash, cause that would just make my day!  makes me wonder how many other of the actors have REALLY read fanfic.

have you ever noticed that half the time in the movies, Harry's eyes are blue?  i mean... it's such a big deal that his eyes are green in the book, i don't see why they don't do a better job of color editing in the movie, or green contacts all the time, or something.


i mean... do they not look blue?  and these are photoshoot pictures here for friggen sake!  at least if you don't do the stuff for the eyes in the movie, do it for the damn photos!

this has been bothering me for yearsssssssssss!
