1. I'll be going into the studio on Thursday to record the music for the LINGER trailer. And I'm working on the trailer as we speak. So that means you guys may see a trailer on Friday or Monday (I know you're just dying to see it. Don't tell me if you're not.) There will also be the Final LINGER contest associated with said trailer. More details to come on that.
2. My mom brought over a giant bag of my old childhood books. I'm now once again the owner of mountains of Saddle Club, Thoroughbred, Tom Swift, Nancy Drew/ Hardy Boy SuperMysteries, and Babysitters Club. I opened up one of them today and was sort of dazzled by the sheer fantastic plot lines. 13 year olds solving mysteries. 15 year olds training Preakness winners. Even when I was reading 'realistic' fiction instead of fantasy, I don't think reality had much to do with it. These babies were formulaic adult books with 14 year old protagonists and school lockers inserted. *shocked face here*
3. Speaking of horses, last Thursday, I went to see my friend Marian, because her Connemara mare had just had her baby the day before. Awwww, right? Mama was Pebbles and little preemie baby (three weeks early, hence the ribbiness) is Pearl. Who was very friendly already and felt like a goat, in case you were wondering. We tired her out with kisses and scratches and "good job being born!"s.
4. And finally, a Monday morning after a week like last week requires a song with some pep to it. "Hermit" by Dios Malos.
