I seriously have almost nothing for you today. *rummages around in bin of possible blog topics*
Let's see - I could tell you how very much I love Biffy Clyro's song, "Many of Horror", which is somewhere on the Charlie St. Cloud soundtrack. Not that it's easy to find that information because they haven't actually released a soundtrack, or even a list of songs on it (although you can buy the score), but I have squirreled around teh interwebs and found out eight of the songs used in either the film or the trailers - and I happen to love all of them. Good job, Ms/Mr Music-Picker, say I, while shaking my fist at whoever made it so hard to find out. (I'll put the list in the comments, in case anyone else is interested, but man, I love every single song. Weird, but true. I especially love "When We Were Dreaming" by the Pink Mountaintops and the Biffy Clyro song, both of which are strangely violent romantic songs.)
OR I could talk about how delicious my biscotti are. I baked them the other day, and they include slivered almonds, chocolate chips and dried cherries. NOM!
OR I could tell you about my time at Borders today, which featured a man snoring VERY LOUDLY (true fact: everyone stared and laughed and whatnot for a good 5-10 minutes, until the cafe manager decided to interrupt the man's noisy nap as a courtesy to the entire cafe and surrounding area). While working there, I crossed bunches of things off my list, including the last of the revisions to a collection of poems for middle graders that I wrote last Christmas time, the completion of one proposal for next year's NESCBWI conference, the drafting of a bio for this year's CYBILS awards site, and updating my writer's resume to include new publication details, some of which I haven't yet told you about. But I will. Soon. And I wrote up writerly goals for the next week. So much to do, so much to do.
But first, I am enjoying my tea and biscotti, whilst listening to "Many of Horror".
