Nothing fancy

Usually when I go to compose a blog, Blogger gives me the option of looking at it as a HTML version, or as a WYSIWYG style interface. Today, everything looks like HTML. I'm feeling a little too lazy to put links in using HTML (there's a reason we have WYSIWYG editors - they are very easy to use and save brainpower for writing!).

So what did I want to say? Well, I've been plowing through James Bond novels like they were going out of style, so that increases my 101 books score (if you can call it that), and on Monday I went to see "Wanted" at the cinema. This was a real treat, visually stunning, a good adaptation of the source material (OK, so it didn't feature supervillains, but it was still thematically very close to the graphic novel) and great, great fun.

Today I booked myself preview tickets to "The Dark Knight" on the 23rd of July, two days before it's released in the UK. Tickets are twice the normal price, but attendees get a limited edition poster for going, so that's alright in my book.

Usual excuses about lack of flash fiction abound: in trying to get my corrections for my thesis done I've put off writing (because I feel guilty if I'm writing anything other than my thesis corrections). But the stories are there! They're a couple of inches behind my eyes, locked away for now, but coming out soon...

And that's it. So, how are you?

Wow, over a week and I haven't posted? I seriously need to correct that...

Leah - Still two weeks to go, I'm super excited about it!

kimz - I did take a break, but it had to be a short one. As I'll say in a post soon, I am very close to being all done.

matt - I'm waiting patiently for my corrections to be done, then am planning to take a holiday or two if no jobs come up...
