Media Bliss

I think I have more or less returned to human form, though I wouldn't quite call it 100% yet (chocolate still does not sound appealing; this should tell you something). Definitely a few steps up from roadkill now, though.

I meant to post this a month or so ago, but I got sidetracked, and then I got some additional great news to add to the growing list. The last three months have been very kind to me in terms of media announcements, and I don't mean the press. I mean media, as in books, games, music, etc. First came the announcement by J.K. Rowling that she will almost definitely be doing a Harry Potter encyclopedia, including all sorts of info from her notes that never made it into the books. Woo-hoo! What a nice birthday present that was. After that comes word that there is a new Lego video game in the works by the same folks who created my beloved Lego Star Wars; this time up: Indiana Jones!! Coming 2008, IIRC. Then, Diana Gabaldon announces that she will have not one, but TWO books coming out this year! Granted, they're both Lord John books, and one of them is a compilation of short stories that were previously released, but still! Some Gabaldon is better than none. (And I love my family so much, I missed her appearance at the Decatur Book Festival last weekend so I could visit them instead.)

And last, but most certainly not least, comes almost the bestest news ever: a new Josh Groban CD!! Better yet, it is a Christmas album! ::swoon:: You bet your sweet bippy I'll be breaking my "no Christmas music before Thanksgiving" rule for that one!

Currently feeling: gleeful


  1. Chocolate not appealing?! How can that be???!!! Teehee... hope you feel 100% very soon :)

  2. I just drooled all over the keyboard when you said Lego Indiana Jones....
