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!
