Around & About

Nin had to work today, and then she's going to see "Hell Boy", so what would I be doing but blogging?

Brunch Report: It was goood! and Glenn bought a half flat of strawberries too, so he cut some up and soaked them in champagne, mum made a sponge cake, and the strawberry shortcake was mmmmmmmmm!

I really need to get those Horatio Hornblower DVDs. I saw the first movie yesterday, I saw the last one first a few months back, and I've seen one from somehwere in the middle.

Paul is still out and about as his blog slowly disappears into nothingness.

Allah has been on a freakin' roll this week.

I really do love Alison Krauss.

Maura decides to open up about her chronic health problem, and she does it with grace and humour. Having a chronic health condition myself, I admire her for her honesty.

Over at Girls! we're discussing cooking and swim suits.

D.G. is nearing her second blogiversary! Happy Day, sweetie.

Rachel shares my passion for jasmine. Jasmine & sandalwood -- two of my favourite scents. (and it's so nice to be able to link to a Rachel post again!)

Lachlan is blogging up a storm as one of the guest bloggers over at the Blight.

There's already a LotR Trilogy Boxed Set ready to go.

Me, I'm waiting for the super-duper-extra-extended-complete-till-they-add-even-more-stuff edition that I'm sure is to come.

Oh, thank you! Big squishy hugs to you!

Mmmmmmmm..........jasmine and sandalwood! Heavenly stuff! Have you tried the sandalwood soap from Pier One as a way to freshen your linens? Fab-u-lous!

No, I haven't. I'll have to go hunt it out :)

Horatio Hornblower is fantastic. I taped the more recent episodes, but haven't had a chance to actually watch them yet. And I have the first series on video - I'll have to look into replacing with DVD at some point. Same with Pride & Prejudice.

So how was Hell Boy? It got a good review in my town.

Hellboy wasn't a bad movie... Worth the matinee price I paid for it.

There were bits that didn't 'jive'.

Like, one character, they wish-washed. One moment, they could control their powers, the next, they needed external stimuli in order to activate said powers.

And, they never really had enough backstory...

I'm being very general because I don't want to give the movie away... :-)
