Just reading Tad Williams' fabulous "Shadowmarch". I have to say, as a raving Williams fan, that I think "The War of the Flowers" was his most fun read, while "Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn" is one of the greatest fantasy epics of all time. But "Shadowmarch" does not disappoint. I think Tad Williams is one of the best fantasy writers around. Go, Tad! And where the heck is book 2 of this? I'm about to finish!

CARS! "Cars", the new Pixar movie, was great! I was a little worried, because cars aren't really that huggable, not like Sully from Monsters, Inc. But I loved the cars, they were darling! The two little Italian cars? So cute! The Hispanic car, who changed his paint job every day? Fabulous! The stoned VW van who lived next door to the Army surplus Jeep? Hilarious! What a great film! Two thumbs way up!

Saw the movie. Loved the movie. It's hard to get to the movies with a toddler, arrangements must be made for babysitting and the like, so it's always disappointing when a movie you've been anticipating isn't that good. DaVinci Code. MI:III. Poseidon. Meh. But then came X-Men: The Last Stand! The plot was even twistier than it thought, I loved the new additions like Beast and Angel, and the dark rich look of the first two movies was preserved. Hooray!
