Because everybody's doing it

I'll be getting to the Meme that's making its way 'round in a moment but there's this movie coming out in of couple of weeks that I am super excited about and wondered if any of you are too? No... it's not Deathly Hallows though I am sort of getting excited about that too. 

If I've done this right, you'll get the trailer for "The Kings Speech". Cross your fingers...

I have to tell you that I've been watching the various trailers way too much. I mean come on... it's got Colin Firth! In a uniform! I've already got four of my girlfriend's lined up to see it but I have a feeling this is going to be one of those movies that I see over and over an then watch constantly when the DVD comes out.

Meme time.

A is for age: 47. I may be old but I'm certainly not going to act like it!

B is for beer of choice: Don't drink it so, with mrstater 's consent, I'll have to answer Root Beer.

C is for career right now: Graphic artist for a sportswear company. Been doing it for sometime now (25 years) and I think I may just have the hang of it.

D is for your dog's name: No Dogs but Cats named Ulysses, Fran, Murphy and Dora

E is for essential item you use everyday: iPod for music in the car and at work. iPad for reading during lunch or before bed.

F is for favourite TV show: Favorite of all time or now? Now would be Fringe. All time would have to be Star Trek, the original series. 

G is for favourite game to watch: Baseball. Unfortunately, the Giants just won the World Series so no more Baseball until April. :(

H is for hometown: Torrance, California.

I is for instruments you play: Percussion and if I were to list everything I play, you'd probably lose interest and miss out on all the rest of the answers below.

J is for favourite juice: Apple

K is for whose butt you'd like to be kicking: My own to get on that treadmill everyday and work off some of that flab!

L is for the last place you ate at: Home. Left over spaghetti from Halloween party at my bro's.

M is for marriage: Nothing in the works at this time.

N is for your name: Sandra... but call me Sandy, it fits me better.

O is for overnight hospital stay: Never and I'd like to keep it that way.

P is for people you were with today: I know there were other people in the building where I have my office but I didn't interact with them today.

Q is for what your best quality is: compassion for others... especially those of the furry kind.

R is for what you're currently reading: The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchet. The 22nd Disworld novel I've read since gilpin25 got me started.

S is for your relationship status: see M

T is for the time you woke up today: 4 AM. Then went back to sleep until 6 AM when I really had to get up.

U is for type of underwear you have on: black thongs (not lacy black, though)

V is for favorite vegetable: Vegetable? Can I change this to fruit and say Apricots?

W is for worst habit: drink too much Pepsi.

X is for x-rays you've had: various broken bones from my more active years.

Y is for some yummies: Homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Z is for zodiac sign: Cancer

I hope to get started on another Remus and Tonks piece that's been on the back burner for quite a while. It's had a few starts and stops but the sketch is pretty much ready to be scanned in and then the real fun begins.

Vote tomorrow, those of you Stateside.

I just did a piece for gilpin25's birthday that you could rec. Don't think I can get the new piece done in time for you though. Sorry.

I haven't been to crack broom in ages. I need to keep up with that better.

Yep, why does growing older have to mean growing up???

The Kings Speech looks fabulous, cannot wait.
it's got Colin Firth! In a uniform!
Exactly, what's not to love???

Also, yay more R/T art!! Looking forward to that, I love the way you draw them!

I really want to get this new piece done. It's based on a scene from one of mrstater's stories and it's been banging around my head for a couple of years. There's partial nudity involved and strategically placed soap bubbles and that may be what's been holding me back. ;)

I haven't been excited about many movies this year until I saw the clip for The Kings Speech. My brother's in-laws were living in England at that time and I love to hear them talk about their experiences. And then there's Colin in uniform, did I mention that?

I haven't read The Light Fantastic. Should I?

Cats named Ulysses, Fran, Murphy and Dora

So who is Boss Cat out of those?

I may be old but I'm certainly not going to act like it!

A few weeks back, I had a reviewer tell me that R/T writers and readers were all 'mature, non-teenager types' and then also dropped in that she'd reached the grand old age of...21. I resisted the urge to say I was mature enough (in years at least) to be her mother!

I hope to get started on another Remus and Tonks piece that's been on the back burner for quite a while.

I wouldn't read Light Fantastic without reading Colour of Magic first. Both were enjoyable but I wouldn't put them high on my list of favorite Discworld novels. Love the Watch, then Death and then the Witches novels. Haven't got much into the ones featuring the Wizards. Still, I'm going to slog on through all of them!

Fran is Queen cat of the house and she rules with an "I am not amused" look and a quick smack to anyone who invades her personal space, except for me. She has forgotten her humble beginnings scratching out a living at the local college where I found her the night of a concert. She spent that evening in a practice room and then went home with me, lucky girl.

"mature, non-teenager types", eh? LOL. I try not to laugh when I run up against comments from all these youngens moaning about how old they are! The best years are yet to come, kiddies... or that's what I keep telling myself!

Tonight I'm free and with no Baseball games to distract me so I am going to get that sketch out an make some serious (sirius) progress even if Fran tries to sit on it!
