Ah, summer!

Don't you just love summer? I know it doesn't officially start until June Whatever, but frankly, I think it's pretty much anytime after Memorial Day weekend. Barbecuing, sunshine and ice cream. It's all good.

Of course, Miranda doesn't have a great summer in Moby Clique, which makes her all the more ready to get back to campus. You know it's not a good summer when you're actually eager to get back to school, much less a haunted campus!

I don't have too much to report other than it's finally starting to get warm here in Chicago and I'm going to take full advantage of every day of sunshine since they're prety much numbered around here. In Wuthering High movie news, the producer has a director (and possibly) a screenwriter on board, so things are moving along there. You never know what will happen with these things, but if you want to see a Bard movie on the Big Screen just keep your fingers crossed. You never know.

Speaking of movies, anyone looking forward to any summer blockbusters this year? I have to admit I went to see Speed Racer the day it came out! I was a huge fan back in the day. I asked my dad to paint a five on my tricycle, I was so into the cartoon. I'm not quite sure why, although Speed is kind of cute, in a Japanese anime kind of way.

I'd say if you have a producer, a director, and possibly a screenwriter, you are in REALLY good shape!

As for other movies, I can't wait for HANCOCK. I love Will Smith and I look forward to finally seeing him in another movie in which his character does not die. Or, maybe he does, but I hope not.

Yes the time between freezing cold and sweltering hot in Chicago is very brief indeed. I hope to enjoy it this weekend at Printer's Row, you going? I'd love to bump into you :)

And squee! I'd say the film thing is going very well. I'm keeping fingers and toes crossed! As for summer movies, I'm all about the new X Files flick that's coming out. I miss Mulder and Scully! I think I might be the only girl on earth who couldn't care less about the Sex and the City movie, but will probably see the X Files multiple times-- I think I saw the last one three times in the theater!
