Naughty Loki, Happy Feet and X-Mas almost done...

<------ This little furball is the reason why I only added 200 words to my story this morning. :/ He's so darn cute, but so naughty! Loki wants to explore every nook and cranny around the place, and loves to climb as high as he can. Cheeky boy.

It's actually my own fault, to be quite honest. He's got a routine - loves to have a nap as soon as the hubby leaves for work. And during the last few weeks I've been checking out the internet first, then writing. Of course, by then he's awake and wants to run around everywhere. So, from next week onward the routine for moi is going to change. Write first, internet later! Besides, my daughter doesn't sleep past 7am now. I lose another hour there. Damn, huh?

Anyway, enough whining for now.

Last night we watched Happy Feet. I really wasn't expecting much from this flick because the trailers I saw for it just had a penguin dacing. I had no idea what they were going to do with that, but I was pleasantly surprised. I loved it! The way modern music was used was fantastic and I loved the attitude the little Hispanic penguins had. It was hilarious. I really enjoyed it.

We watched March of the Penguins not long ago, so it was great to see how they mixed a fictional story with fact. Emperor penguins seem so organised, so this was great. Mumble was also a lovely hero. Very innocent and kind-hearted. Yeah, I thought this was a winner. I don't know what others thought of it, but I was very impressed! Very cool ending too. Both the hubby and daughter enjoyed it too.

Ah, the writing's going really well at the moment - asides from this morning, obviously. ;) I've now gotten to 21,294 words, so that's excellent. I'm very close to the end now. I'm on the final battle stage. When I write that, it'll be time to tie everything up between hero, heroine and everything else. Not sure how much will be involved in terms of word count, but I would definitely love to get this first draft done before it's time to head out to pick my daughter up from school. Fingers crossed.

Man, the weekend's almost here again. Hey, I'm not complaining but gosh it goes quick!

Looks like the lovely sunny day we had yesterday - after three days of non-stop rain - won't be repeated today. It's overcast again. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if it rains later. :/

Have a great weekend everyone!

Thanks Cora! Loki's a cutie and very, very cheeky. He also loves to play hide and seek, lol! :D

Thanks for stopping by.

I wanted to go see Happy Feet to see why some institution declared it was one of the most racist thing they've ever seen.

Penguins are pretty adorable.

Hoorah for twenty one thousand words! =D

Penguins are cool! I loved the guys from Madagascar too.

Y'know, I was reading about that racist thing and I just don't see it. I think people need to lighten up a little. It's supposed to be a light-hearted, fun movie that appeals to both adults and children. With a small message of harmony in there too... man, I don't get it sometimes.

I guess people always have to have an opinion. :/

I don't think I ever told you that my new nephew's name is Loki. It always confuses me when you write about your cat. :)

Hey Garnigal! No, you didn't tell me about your nephew. Lol, sorry for confusing you. :D
