Weekly wrap up.

It's Friday. Yeee haw! As yesterday was my birthday, this weekend I intend to go and have some fun. The Engineer and I will probably go out to eat and see 300. I'm not expecting it to be high art, but the trailers look good, it's Frank Miller (and I actually enjoyed most of Sin City, oddly enough) and, you know, Gerard Butler spends most of the movie if not all of it only half dressed.

Never let it be said that I can't be as hungry for eye candy as the next girl. ;)

My new contact at Fox is apparently launching a new show on Monday, so there's been nothing from that front thus far. She's busy, it happens. I will continue to get my name in front of her and hope for a response soon.

I have not been writing lately. I finished a couple of editing rounds, but I haven't written anything new. The urge to create is building up again, so I forsee a burst in the very near future. I tell myself I'm going to write every day, but the truth of the matter is that sometimes, you just need to let things percolate. I get bottled up especially when there are issues elsewhere and I have to let things settle before the writing will flow again. Here's hoping I'm ready to go.

300 looks fascinating. Of course, I'm really just dying to see it to find out whether they managed to use the dialogue that Thucydides reported ensued between the Persian leader and one of the Spartans (perhaps Leonidas--what a HOT name!). According to legend, it went something like this:

Persian: When our army fires its arrows, they will block out the sun.
Spartan: Then we'll fight in the shade.

God, I love that! (And of course, the Klingons are clearly modeled on the Spartans. "It is a good day to die" and all that...)

Jacqueline, it's in there! Well, it's in the trailer, anyway. Whether it made the movie or not, I don't know. But it's in the trailer and I love it too. :)

Happy late birthday Sara! Have fun watching 300 - I heard it's good but violent.

:)

Oh goody. (I haven't seen any trailers, so I wasn't sure.)

And pooh, I said Thucydides when I MEANT Herodotus (as I was just reminded on Annie Dean's blog, where 300 is also a subject of discussion).

Can't keep my damned Greek historians straight any more...

Happy Birthday!!!

Hope you have a good one. . . 300 sounds good with all those half-naked men -- I may have to talk my hubby into seeing it.

Half naked men? Where?!

Happy birthday! Here's hoping that when the bottle is unstoppered, creativity flows abundant and free.

Hope you had a great birthday Sara! You'll have to post a review of 300!

Sara Dennis said...

Thanks for the happy birthday wishes, Pam, Shelli, Lenora and Lori. And everyone! Wow. :)

Alice, there are half-naked, extremely well-sculpted men in 300. Lots of them.
