I’m in a good mood right now 🙂
Having fallen asleep early last night, I woke up at 8am PST with the sun shining into my hotel room. After a quick breakfast, I headed out onto Bay Street for some window shopping. Unfortunately, I headed into Barnes & Noble and got hooked with their discount books… LOL. I can’t say no to a book, especially one on sale 🙂 Truthfully, I picked up a small book for Charlize, an early-reader (ie; 4-8) chapter book for Kyle (based on Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman 🙂 ) and a book on pin-up artist Gil Elvgren).
I then headed over to AMC to catch an early showing of Puss in Boots. Although I loved (loved!) all the music and dancing scenes, including learning of Puss’ early years, and cracked up at Kitty Soft Paws “Batman” inspired costume… it didn’t reach the FULL level of enjoyment I was expecting. On a joy/ giggle/ fun factor level of 8 (my expectations), it was a 6.75. So, I’m glad I got to see it for $6 and not more 🙂
After a quick stop to pick up some groceries, and making myself a killer omelet for lunch, I’ve been doing some editing/ reviewing/ and writing with music playing in the background. I still don’t have a proper “writing” area in my hotel, but have found that sitting at the dining “island” is a lot more comfortable than the desk they have here. Add to that the fact that I have a variety of novels, DVDs, and action figures in front of me watching my every click allows me to find ways to distract myself to help the words slip out of my fingertips 🙂
Add this to the sun still shining into my room and the smell of espresso still in the air… and I can count this as a good day 🙂 Of course, the extra fact that I’m contributing to a friend’s book when I wasn’t sure I would be able to, definitely helps 🙂
