This and that [Jul. 11th, 2012|02:03 am]

Watched "Benjamin Button" last night. I thought parts of it were lovely while other parts dragged a little. It'd be churlish of me to give it anything other than 5/5 though. It left an impression on me. And Cate Blanchett and Taraji P Henson turned in marvellous performances.

Pippa's coat has been getting a bit long and unruly so we took her to a local dog grooming shop. I asked the guy not to mind the ringlets and feathery bits, just cut her short all over. I'm sure breeders of Cavalier King Charles spaniels would be horrified but she emerged from the shop looking all sleek and bouncy and puppy-like. I don't know what shampoo they use but I wish mine smelled as nice. I think Pippa's getting  a bit fed up of me using her as pomander.

Played Nation Red (that's a PC game to the uninitiated) for an hour or so and unlocked two Steam achievements. Impressed? No, I didn't think anyone would be.

Currently working on the epilogue to "White Hide". I expected it to be around 500 words but it's nearly 2000 words already. Hmm.

I'm missing Heather. 38 hours to go before she's back from London. Roll on Thursday.

I liked that film.
Yes, Bear always smells great from the groomers. The other 51 weeks of the year he smells like farts.
I'm impressed. No idea what the game is, but I'm easily impressed.
Impressive. My epilogues tend to refer to dead children.
Aww!

I had no idea it was based on an F Scott Fitzgerald short until the credits rolled.
Ew. But don't you just the smell of puppies' paws?
It's a top-down arena shooter. WIth zombies!
My first novel had an epigraph with three chapters. I thought I was being so avant garde.
You know how it feels.
