Peeking Through

The sun came out yesterday, it was the first time in about two and a half years.  Okay maybe I'm exaggerating, maybe it has only been two years.  Nevertheless it felt freakin awesome!  It was so nice that I actually got out and helped the hubby work on my Wookie Cave.  Seeing as half of the building is mine, I should at least spend some time on it eh.

But the truth of the matter is that I've been busy sitting here and writing stuff.  And when I write, it feels like I am in a time machine.  I sit down, write for about three minutes and when I look at the clock 6 hours have gone by.  Today the hubby went off to help a damsel in distress (the kidlet) and I was at home doing nothing.  Well I made butter tarts for my class tomorrow, and I did finish off this month's budget, and I scrubbed the bathroom from top to bottom, and did a little bit of writing.  Then the sun, the dog, and the sound of the waves lapping against the beach made me get up and go outside and do some beach cleaning.  I probably could have stayed out all afternoon but when the wind died down the black flies came out to chew on my lily white legs. 

So here I am back to the grind.  Oh would you look at the time, seventeen hours have gone by.

Star Trek

Last night I went to the new Star Trek movie...wait for it...I loved it.  It was really fun, entertaining and pretty cool.  Sure there was some cheesy scenes, some kitschy scenes, and some over used phrases, (yes, yes I know...the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one...I GET IT!) but there was also a lot of fun.  I even watched it in 3D, and up until now hadn't really been a big fan, but this was pretty good.  However I would like to watch it just as a regular movie as well.  Will have to wait for the DVD I guess. 

The new Khan was seriously kick ass, way tougher, less friendly, and a little more evil than Ricardo.  I still like the original Khan better because he had a lot more personality, but I think this Khan depicted more of what real engineered super humans might be like. 

I loved that they threw a tribble into the mix.  I liked the evil dreadnaught class of starship.  (Spoiler Alert...or maybe no, maybe its just a given.)  Why, oh why, oh why, do all Starfleet Admirals go bad?  Is it because absolute power corrupts absolutely?  It just seems like cope out.  

I loved...LOVED Karl Urban's portrayal of Bones.  He was awesome!  I love Karl Urban anyway...I seriously heart Eomer, never would have picked him for this role but I thought he did an amazing job and now cannot imagine this role going to anyone else. Zachary Quinto did an amazing job as well. He so is the next Spock.  Whoever was the casting people for this hit the bulls-eye for these two. I was totally expecting the blond to be Yeoman Rand, it isn't, but who the girl is makes for a good mix in the Khan story line. 

Anyway before I go on and give it all away I will stop.  But I just wanted to say that I liked this movie.  Such a relief!  There have been some real stinkers as of late.  Now I have to go because I have a tick crawling up my pant leg.  I think I will BBQ the little bastard.

May the Leaves Begin...

Okay so that is a really lame title for this particular post, but the fact of the matter that here at Kitpu Estates, it is May, the leaves have sproinged into being, and spring has sprung.  Things were warmish at the beginning of the month and now the rains have been here for a few days and the temperatures have gone down a tich.  I am not complaining.  I am more into cooler then warmer these days. 

I know I have put in a pathetic amount of time to my blog this last month or so, at the start it was because I was suffering from the plague and my brain went into a, Woe is Me, state and could not function.  Now it is because I have been scrambling to get my homework done, my story out for publication, and of course the work goes on in my novel.  Which is about as far from, woe is me, that a person can get. 

The tick count for the hound is into the seventies now, and of course with every passing day we should be seeing a rise in that count.  I am looking forward to the time that we get started with Plan A on that front and have ourselves a clutch of guinea fowl.  Apparently one bird is good for cleaning one acre of ticks.  I'd like to start with ten and go from there. 

In the meantime back in the shack old Iron Bess has been getting a lot of help making beds from Karson the Hairball producing cat. 

 Oh, I just have to adjust the sheets under here.

What do you mean you are taking them off the bed?  I just spent a lot of time making it just right.

No Time...

Writing all day long and I have no time to write on the blog, or do my homework.  But I can't complain because at least I am putting one word down after the other and it's feeling good!
