WHO, reading & werewolves

Well, DOCTOR WHO just seems to get better and better! We watched it on Saturday night and it totally rocked! I'm lovin' David Tennant... he's ultra cool. Rose is pretty good too, though I don't know what's happened to Billy Piper's hair this season. Ugh. She needs to get rid of that ugly (and very badly done) blonde dye-job.

Anyway, enough about hair. Let's not get distracted from the awesome episode. This time they went back in time and there was a werewolf in it. This was another, totally different spin to the werewolf myth. I love it! And judging by the preview for next week, it looks like the series is taking a slant towards the supernatural. Always a great thing, huh? And there was an answer to something I was wondering about, that happened in the X-mas episode. I love it when shows give you answers a little bit at a time...

Not like LOST. It's the reason why we gave up on that show!

Anyway, we had a lovely, calm and relaxed weekend. We went for walks on Friday night, Saturday and Sunday afternoon. It was nice. And I caught up on some reading. As you can see below, I read Crescent Moon in like a day or something. And I enjoyed it so much that yesterday morning I grabbed Dates From Hell and started reading Lori Handeland's novella. It's called Dead Man Dating.

Here's a blurb:

The term "dating hell" takes on a whole new meaning when a Manhattan literary agent out on her first date in months is forced to choose between a sexy devil and the rogue demon hunter who's out to destroy him.
It was a lot of FUN! So much that I pretty much read it in two sittings. It was very cool. Not about werewolves this time, but terrific anyway. It was set in New York and the imagery was amazing. Y'know, Lori's got this way of capturing the setting so well, you truly feel like you're there. I love it! She's a very cool writer. I can't wait for Midnight Moon! This one I will read right away.

So as you can probably tell, I'm in a werewolf-kinda mood lately and decided to pick up the second Dresden book, Fool Moon, last night. I got about 40 pages into it and so far, so good. I really enjoyed the first one and really don't know why it's taken me so long to actually pick up the next book. Strange, but I can't wait to get stuck into the thick of things. I really like Harry, he's very cool.

Today I managed to get the remaining 80 pages (or so) done on the magic revision. And I got through them just in time too. Only about 15 minutes before I had to head out to pick up my daughter. It's done. Stronger, tighter, makes more sense -- I'm much happier with it... and head's all-a-buzzing with ideas about the next book. I just need to come up with another title for this one, something a little more appropriate. The hubby reckons the current title doesn't fit!

Hmmm... all this werewolf readin' and watchin' has got my werewolf book idea whispering inside my head. I've pretty much had the main plot written down for a few weeks, but now other things are coming together too. :/
It's so darn cold today. The wind is icy... and it's been raining on-and-off all day. Yuck, I'm really getting tired of this continuous rain!

Oh, and we didn't get a chance to watch Emily Rose! Anyway, later!
