My Glimpse blog tour post for today is entitled, Into the Past. I talk about what I liked to read at ages 8, 16, and 24. Let’s just say this is probably the only post where Amelia Bedelia and Bukowski are mentioned within paragraphs of each other. 🙂 You can read all about it here.
The blog tour posts got a little backed up this week. I think Blogger was smoking the crack. Here’s a great 4.5/5 review from Alisia Leavitt on her blog and also another chance to enter the Glimpse giveaway. It’s international!
Besides that, what’s goin’ on y’all? I assume we’re all happy the weekend is almost here? This week was weird. We had Presents Day (that’s what my son called it and now I have to get him some new Legos ’cause I didn’t deliver on actual Presents Day) and a snow day where most of the snow was melted by noon. It seems like SNOWPOCALYPSE threatened much of the US and then delivered mostly rain.
Glow is coming along really well. I’m having one of those weeks where the words fall out of my head. I haven’t worked on Dormant much, but I really need to get crackin’ since it’s going to be out in about a month!
Don’t forget to listen to me on Must Love Books blog talk radio this Sunday. I’ll be on at 5:30 central, so adjust your times accordingly. I’m making the hubs take the kids out of the house. The only other time I even tried to call into a radio show (IBC’s second show, I believe) the kids both threw fits and the girl climbed up on my desk and got a pair of scissors. (She is determined. She finally did find a pair of scissors in the way back of one of the drawers in the hall bathroom the other day and proceeded to try to cut her index finger off. This was after she’d collected all the plungers in the house and plunged all the water out of the toilet and covered the floor. Squeamish mom’s need not apply at my house.)
My big plans for the weekend besides the radio show are to watch Masterpiece Theatre with Sarah on Saturday night and catch the Oscars on Sunday evening. I know you want to know my predictions- let me lay them on you:
Best Picture: The King’s Speech
Best Director: David Fincher
Best Actor: Colin Firth
Best Actress: Natalie Portman
Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale
Best Supporting Actress: Hailee Steinfeld
Adapted Screenplay: Aaron Sorkin
Original Screenplay: Christopher Nolan
Best Song: We Belong Together-from Toy Story 3.
I see an assload of movies and have subscribed to EW for over a decade, so you can feel confident about coming in second in your Oscar pool with my picks.
…and this post has gone on entirely too long. Bye!
