Day after Yesterday...

Yesterday was my 2nd anniversary. Fortunately, I don't feel anything like an old married lady. Nope - I'm young, happy and so in love! It's like the movies, books and fairy tales I've always read were really a poor reflection on what love could be. And why? Because God loves me in an amazing and wonderful way! Because He brought me Scott, my lifebonded, my lover, my partner, my one and only. God is SO AWESOME and I praise Him for His goodness every day - but especially yesterday...and today...and tomorrow.

Something I "re-found" on the web

My old friend, Victoria, is a talented singer/songwriter with a voice for ballads. I don't think she wrote this song, but it's one of my favorites that she sings.

Speed Racer

I liked it. No, really, it was happy candy for my eyes. Plus, the plot was just unpredictable enough, the races were consistently fun to watch and the family that was the heart of the movie was fun, interesting and totally relate-to-able. I liked that the good guys fulfill their promises, I liked that the protagonist struggled and was not perfect. It was an all-around, good, clean, fun flick and I would see it again tomorrow. Heh, maybe I WILL! (I could take Lynna - Yay $1.75 movies theater!) All in all, it had a more coherent plot than Hancock, a better message than Wanted (but then, so does a used car commercial, so that's not saying much) and was an all around fun film. And that, my friends, is my opinion.

96,000 (In The Heights)

I had a chance to watch most of the Tonys this year on a nice big screen TV. "In The Heights" was definitely the best new show according to my book. Here's a YouTube video of the performance they did.

This one's coming to you from Plano

This summer is being a great time for two things in the Hannah Life - travelling & movies. This week I have been to Tulsa, Oklahoma...and watched Hancock & Get Smart. Hancock was about as I thought it would be - a feel good superhero flick with nothing really amazing or new in it. (Although I did get a writer's lesson in what NOT to do when you have 2 plot lines!) Get Smart was WAY better than I thought it would be. There were no fart jokes. The "fat joke" turned out to be hilarious - because the fat lady was laughing at everyone else! The humor was both intelligent and slapstick - a nice combination if you ask me! All in all, a good movie to see!

And now...the compulsory kitteh:

Also to note - we had an FNW last night! Hoorayyyy! We did Lizard of Truth and read Scott's dream sequence and my new character introduction. I can't WAIT 'til we get established in Austin and can have FNW 2.0 meetings with a group down there. *crosses fingers*

Okay - time to get a towel and pull my not-swimming clothes together for Mark & Trisha's party!

Winds of Fate...and a Kitteh

I just finished the "Winds of Fate" series by Mercedes Lackey. Definitely the best trilogy of hers yet - although "By The Sword" is a standalone book and my favorite by far. I like Mercedes Lackey, I hope I can someday write as complete a world with as full and epic a history and as many diverse peoples as she does in her books.

And now...a kitteh.

Happy Independence Day to All!

I wonder, why do so many people insist on saying "Happy 4th of July" instead of "Happy Independence Day"? Is it because it is less syllables? Would we rather just celebrate "The Fourth" as an American Holiday...forgetting that, like many of our national holidays, this one is rooted in violence?

Also, why don't we have any holidays about WWI or WWII? I mean, we won those too! I'm all for "Happy Manhattan Project Day!"

Today I worked with my computer...

And I finally got all the pictures off of both my old hard drives. I feel completely satisfied that I have them all. Now the only question is - do I keep the computer as a regular Windows boot comp or do I wipe all and restart with Fedora or some such? Decisions, decisions!

But, it is GOOD to think about having my own desk and such again. I wonder what this will mean come fall...will I slowly use the Mac less? I hope not. I love our Mac. Will probably do the Linux thing, then...just to be "different."

You know you're a Theatre Person when...

You get all contemplative in the bathtub and come up with the brilliant idea of doing Guys & Dolls with a Shakespeare style role reversal for the leads!
