And this is just the "preorder" part of my wish list!... sometimes I scare myself!

And.. as much as I want each and every one of these.. there are two books that when i get them.. will be IMMEDIATE reads!  Most of the time I will finish what I am reading before I go to  a new purchase.. but .. there are some that demand immediate attention!  Those would be

Dragons of the Hourglass Mage: The Lost Chronicles, Volume Three

by Margaret Weis (Author), Tracy Hickman (Author) ..this one got lost in the shuffle.. it was to come out more than a year ago.. so i've waited a loooooong time!

The other would be: The View From the Bridge: Memories of Star Trek and a Life in Hollywood (Viking Press USA) by Nicholas Meyer (Author)  (an ARC, .. an kingdom for an ARC!!)  I do adore this man.  Love the movies he's directed and love his writing too. (did you know he wrote some Sherlock Holmes books? Ahhh see there! You learned something!)

But I drive myself nuts each time I go to Amazon and look at my wish list .. and especially the stuff I know I have to wait for!! ARGH!!!

Just Yackin'...

....ok so how many females out there has noticed how damn good looking Karl Urban is?  *whew..sweatin' here!*

....Just so ya'll know I did write to that handsome fellow. Just fyi.

....Another fyi: I wouldn't mind seeing the movie again!

....I found my old (ancient) tripod and my camera fits on it!  I will have to give it a try and see if it helps me get more pictures at the pond.

....I received a message from Michael Scott, the author of The Sorceress which I just read, thanking me for my kind words on his book. I thought that was nice, since I hope it was obvious how much I enjoyed that book and his other two before it.  I also sent for a used copy of The Merchant Prince which Michael Scott co-wrote with Armin Shimerman (Quark!), who i've met twice and is a really super nice person.

....My girlfriend called me from near Washington DC.. soon she will be going to a Creation Convention and is excited.. heck I would be too!  Leonard Nimoy is one of the guests!  So is Conner Trineer (too cute!) and someone I never met but loved his part as Sybok in Star Trek, Laurence Luckinbill!  It will be a great show.. i am envious lol.

....I would have loved to see that eclipse that lasted 6 minutes!!

....I marked my calendar.. it didn't rain today!


.... Those 3 cute ducklings I showed you... only one remains.

Often as in all stories, there has to be a "bad guy" and it blew me away when this huge bird landed very close to my door.. I only got off 2 pictures before he took off..

looks like a big black bird huh? (granted: he was big!)

.. meet the resident black Turkey Vulture.  I have a feeling this is where the ducklings have disappeared to.   (He's even uglier than Woody!)

And that's sad indeed...poor ducklings.

Vala again. Saw your book wish list. I have too many to be read books right now and am trying not to get anymore till I finish up on those. Black turkey vultures are fairly common here. Keep the road kills cleaned up. Is the Chris here the one from our old cons and De's friend? Need to call Sue again and just say hi. We talk about once every 3 months for a looonnnggg time. The only thing can't get used to with Karl playing McCoy is I still expect him to have the blue eyes and Kirk's to be the hazel ones. But have seen the movie 3 times, (I was dragged..not!). Well I will leave you to blog on.

nymeth: yes it is.. mama duck watches this one very closely..but she did all of them but she is only about 1/3 the size of the vulture.

debi: they are always lovely until you have to pay for them LOL

Val: oh yeah ? you have a good sized tbr pile? Mine is now over 100 books!!
I know the vultures do a good job of "cleaning up" but nothing WAS dead here!..they sure are big mothers LOL..

oh yes, when Sue calls here it's for one or two hours also lol.. i wish the heck she'd get internet!!

The Niffenegger sounds interesting but I didn't like The Time Traveler's Wife, so would be leary of buying the new one without someone's recommendation.

Oh wow, that con sounds fantastic!

Is Karl Urban your new screen boyfriend, Pat? Heheheheh.

hey CAth: I am the same about the Audrey Niffenegger book but it sounds good.

yeah I was going to go to that con if i still lived there.

Karl Urban my new screen boyfriend? LOL a tad young don'tcha think?.. just a tad mind you LOL.. yeah right.. he is certainly the "newest" actor I will follow!!..It's too bad he lives way away in Auckland.. I was hoping he would do some conventions so I could get an autograph!!!

Cath: well I never said i was blind! he is a cutie.. now what is it I do with him again????

Blogger Cath said...

You can tell how much of a rush I was in this morning... I meant 'too old' for a toy boy. And is he *that* young? He has to be almost 40 surely? Okay so that's still a lot younger than either of us but we can dream...

I believe that is a black vulture --
a turkey vulture has pinkish red skin on its head.

Vulture mostly eat carrion -- I don't know if they actually kill for food

He may have eaten duck soup...but I suspect something else is the killer.

I know what you mean about pre-orders. Several of those I want, too, but there are lots more besides! I keep meaning to read more Weis and Hickman to get caught up. I think I will go browse the TBR pile for another book by them.

kelly: there are always too many books to buy! lol

Blogger Susan said...

Ok, one copy of View From the Bridge for me! And yuck to the vulture...we have lots of turkey vultures up here, too. I see too many of them! Sad about the ducklings, but at least the bird didn't kill them...they only eat dead meat (or dying.) ok, back to positive things: another book about Star Trek! This made my day!
