20 Worst Agents List, Updated!

Went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest today since we’re in a swashbuckling mood. It was alright. Not the greatest I’ve seen and certainly not the worst.

I like that they picked up with consequences from the first movie, especially bringing Norrington back. And yay undead monkey!

The line- writing wasn’t quite as good though, and some of the jokes felt flat. Still can’t believe parents were bringing little kids to see it. It’s not exactly a light-hearted Disney flick.

Dreamt last night of walking in dream-Lincoln.  I started out in the area where dream-Kleins is and the pharmacy and the liquor store.  I went into the liquor store, but couldn’t see well enough to buy anything.  I was going to walk to dream-A Novel Idea, but night was falling and I needed to get back to the dorms.  I had an amazing feeling of multiple possibilities laid out before me.  And then I realized it was a dream.

Going to take more time off from Divine Fire while we regroup our poop.  I plan on giving the apartment a good cleaning this week, and do some smaller writings and practices.

U. Florida cops ask fiction writer for fingerprints, DNA  is going around.  Thanks, sailormur for pointing that one out.  Kinda makes me want to call for a “blog a fictional violent crime” day.

And Barbara Bauer is back with more publishing drama.  For those of you who weren’t following along, Ms. Bauer is on this list:
