Thanks for the invite. We could definitely hang out on the couch together and watch movies and shows. I was addicted to Twin Peaks and grew up reading MAD. I am glad to see you have Giles Blunt on your list. I recently read his Blackfly Season and I enjoyed it immensely, I am going to put him on my list too. AND you take boxing, I think you are my new hero honey. Next time you're on the West Coast skip through a little lower into Vancouver and I will buy you a drink. Looking forward to reading your book.
Your list of favourite movies has inspired me to check out some of them again. I love the Cohen Brothers films, especially The Big Lebowsky. I like how there's the theme of kidnapping running through so many of their films, but each treated so very differently. And Rashomon, what a great choice.
The film that I can't believe I left off my own favourites was Blade Runner.
"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those... moments will be lost… in time… like… tears… in rain. [Pause] Time... to die."
I'll have to have a movies afternoon this weekend, methinks.
Thanks for the invite, Meredith! And thanks for reminding me about "Twin Peaks."
When I worked the night desk at the Boston Globe (ancient days), we used to make up phony obit headlines for each other (you know, like, Tom Jones, Sang for Panties...). Anyway, my favorite of all of mine was "Understood Twin Peaks."
Thanks for the invitation. I love your taste in books and movies. It made me remember a few I'd forgotten.
You are the first woman I've heard of who boxes. I started, just so I'd have decent looking arms. I love it!
Thanks for the note about my site, Meredith, although I'm sure you'd have worked it all out anyway. I had a great time putting those resources together, and a lot of would-be writers have written to say it's proved helpful. But when someone who's already a novelist finds it useful, I feel even better.
Sounds like you had a very busy tour through Florida! No wonder, you've had some excellent reviews on Ladykiller! Keep up the good work! A boxer, huh? Guess I better watch my step. But welcome to my circle anyway.
