Wow. I really have slowed down my blogging. I think that's due to a couple of things. One, I'm back in MBA classes which take up my Tuesday and Thursday evenings (class) and chunks of my weekend (homework). Two, my job is hitting the busiest season of our year (college admissions) and by the time I get home, I don't feel like typing or thinking or anything. Three, I'm in a bit of a reading funk. Part of that getting home and being tired thing. Four, I've spent the last two weeks (has it really been that long) on a mega-glom of Doctor Who shows. Fantasy is so much better than reality. le sigh.
Anyways, I did read one new book this past weekend, The Spymaster's Lady by Joanna Bourne. Top notch book; loved it. Gonna try to review it properly soon. And I bought another JL Langley book last night, With Caution. I plan to settle down with that one over the weekend so as to have some new manlove to talk about on monday. lisabea, are we on for MLM this week?
Oh yeah, and I still need to complete my ballot for the AAR poll. I'm gonna do it. Every night I say that I will sit down and finish it. But then I get distracted. Thing is, I don't really read books the year they're published. Or at least not all that many. If you skim this blog, you'll find far more reviews of old books that I picked up at the library than any hot, current ones. What can I say? I'm cheap and the library's free. Besides, there's a lot of books out there and many of them, I've not yet read. *g* But yeah, I will complete my ballot. Because I vote! (and there's another thing that's been taking up my attention lately...politics. But I won't go into that here.)
As for Doctor Who...after starting in the middle of the series, I went back and watched season 1 in which Christopher Eccleston played the Doctor. I have to say, I wasn't expecting to like him as much as Tennant but I grew really attached to him. He's got an almost feral vibe. Very lean and rangy, dark and unpredictable. Funny too. I got all choked up at the end of the season when he 'changed'. *sniff* And then of course I get used to Tennant again (but still miss Chris) and get all comfy with him and Rose flying all over the universe battling Daleks and other evil whatnots. And then Rose has to leave. *sob* So here I am in the middle of season 3. Still hanging in there. Missing old characters but always up for a bang-up story in which the Doctor meets new challenges and manages to save the world yet again.
