So much... there's so much to post about, and I don't manage to get any of it up anymore. Sigh. But I can cover some of the things I've been watching/reading.

First, though: Home again. So glad to be home. Seeing the boys and Phil and Lika & Bruce was wonderful, but nothing beats my own bed and a husband to snuggle with.

Okay.

Read the Hunger Games trilogy. I enjoyed it a great deal. I really think the third book might be my favorite. Collins' writing style really improves over the three novels. If you haven't read them, I recommend that you do. Very pleased to see that the additions to the movie were really aspects of things that become more clear in the later books. I thought it might be the case, but I'm glad to see that borne out--and yet, none of them are spoilers. Did I mention that I thought the movie was amazing? Because I did.

Saw MiB III yesterday. It was surprisingly good. It's actually my favorite of the three. Go see it. Emma Thompson is really great, Josh Brolin is astounding, and it handles the cast and the property well.

Saw Pirates last weekend. I enjoyed it, although it's not the best of Aardman's work. You need to have a working understanding of 19th-century British history and culture to get the most out of it. It's worth seeing if you do, though. Very cute.

Currently reading The Bloody White Baron, by James Palmer, aka JamesCat from RPGnet. I'm really enjoying it. I have a soft spot for biographies that are well written and well researched. Good work, James. Next up on the reading list: Captain Alatriste.

Monday will have me doing a session of SIFRP, starting with showing everyone the first episode of the show and then doing chargen. Need to review a bit before that happens, just to make sure I've got the process down. Already watched the pilot myself, but am nowhere near caught up with the show. That's okay, I've got a summer.

Watched an episode of the Borgias. And Downton Abbey. Amazing. Damn. See, now I've got Rome, the Tudors, AND the Borgias to watch. And Boardwalk Empire. And Sherlock. And Downton Abbey. Sigh. Thank god I'm not a Doctor Who fan.

I will continue to update as media presents itself. :)
