Five for Friday

1. First off, Mission Impossible was pretty fun. But then again, I enjoy action movies, and believe me when I say there is A LOT of action involved. I prefer to watch movies like this in theaters versus home DVD because I feel like I get more bank for my buck. Romantic comedies aren't going to look any more amazing in theaters. But with action movies and animated movies, I feel that it's worthwhile watching them on the big screen. And with ticket prices skyrocketing, I want to make sure I get the best movie going experience.

2. Writing, writing, writing. I did a lot of it this week, around three thousand words worth. My goal for this year is to get at least 2,000 words a week, and thus far I have been successful. Cursed is shaping up to be something unexpected, like my other stories. It's always surprising to me the discoveries I make about my characters as I follow them along on their journeys.

3. I'm almost done with Clockwork Prince. The amount of time I'm taking reading is highly unusual for me, but since I have almost an entire YEAR before the next one comes out, I thought I'd take my sweet time. And I am. And it is going wonderfully.

4. My house is eerily silent since our home invasion ended. It's kind of sad. It still gets loud with my three little ones, but it's not the same chaotic yelling and running around that I got used when my sis was in town with her FIVE kids, along with my mom and brother. It was fun while it lasted, and I'm looking forward to doing it again. If only because we always take turns watching each other's kids so we can go out on dates with our significant others.

5. I'm at the point in my pregnancy where the baby is pressing up against my lungs, and there only so many positions that allow for me to breathe comfortably. I am SO ready for this to be over.

Have an ahmahzing weekend, everyone!


  1. WOW! Amazing job with the writing, AND - I'm dying to see Mission Impossible! Looks so good! I love stuff like that too! And I hope that baby will stay out of your lungs. Mine think that's a comfy spot too! Hang in there :)

  2. Yay for getting good writing done! And I can't wait to read Clockwork Prince--I have my copy!

  3. My husband saw MI a few days ago and said Vancouver played 2 cities this time! Dubai (which was filmed outside our apartment over 2 nights -> for a 30 second scene which kept us up 'till 3am both nights) and Seattle (filmed at the Sandbar restaurant on Granville Island)

    I think I must see it as well :) Yes, action movies/animation/etc are definitely worth seeing on the big screen :)

    have a wonderful weekend!

  4. We went and saw MI the other night. Liked it a lot. Liked getting out of the house even better. :)

    Congrats on meeting your writing goals. And I know what that squished up, can't breathe feeling is like! Must be nearing the end?

  5. Great job with your writing! Oh, I remember that part of pregnancy. Those little legs can kick really hard too.

  6. I'm halfway through Clockwork Prince right now! And congratulations on getting so much writing done.

    Ahhh I hate that part of pregnancy. Aches, aches, aches.

  7. I totally agree that action movies are tons better in the theater! That's pretty much all we choose when we go out to watch movies.

    And I love when I read a book that makes me want to go slow enough to really savor it!

  8. Wow - your house must have been chaotic with all those bodies running around - good fun though!

    You've transported me back ten years to my last pregnancy, and that struggling to breathe, get comfortable stage. Sleeping is nearly impossible, and all the pregancy magazines tell you to 'make sure you get your rest now, because you won't have much time after baby comes!'
