handholding

(no subject)

Damn damn DAMN! All that work entering into the Facebook "Win a trip to the set of HBP" got me nothing. Just got the winners list. Some guy from River Forest, IL won. SO damn close to me, strangely enough. Let's hope this kid doesn't pick up his prize and it'll be passed on to the next person >D Hopefully still in IL? *crosses fingers*

Damn, I know I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up, but it was the first time I'd actually filled out a entry every day for a contest. Oh well, c'est la vie, right?

My back has been killing me lately. I can't sit at the computer for more than 30 minutes without it shooting pain up my spine. I've been trying to rest it, keep it straight, lay down in the positions they tell you to, do some exercises. It's been bad for about 4 days now. On and off, really. I woke up this morning and it seemed fine. But as the day grew on, it got worse. And I did nothing today except read. I didn't even attempt to lift anything, no manual labor at all.

In other news, it looks like with the end of the Potter books, I'm finding myself drawn to other things finally. Just saw Stardust the other day, LOVED it. Particularly Septimus >D for ... damn obvious reasons. Gonna have to pick up the visual companion for that one as soon as I get ... y'know ... money. I may even make Tristan's hero outfit, just because I have almost all of the fabric for it, already. Dana can be Yvaine :D

I'm almost finished reading Subtle Knife, can't wait to get onto Amber Spyglass. Then I've got plans to read Stardust, maybe try Dark Tower next.

All of my fantasy fiends out there, recommend me some of your favorite titles. I think I still might tackle LotR after all ... maybe I should finish Hobbit first, though.
