I was reading Issue #174 and the article about 'Skyfall', the James Bond film DVD and got all excited about 007 again so I went on Netflix and watched Stevan Riley's 'Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007' documentary, for the 12th time!!!
Now I just watch the beginning and when it starts getting sad, I stop it. I want everyone to get along and have success!
The bookshelf in my office collapsed, so when I was sorting through all the books on the floor I came across Jessica's collection of old Ian Fleming paperbacks. I just randomly cracked open a page and the first paragraph I read put me right back into that world from when I was a kid reading 'From Russia with Love' sitting against my favorite tree in the yard and dreaming of adventure.
Looks like I'll be rereading these again...

JL2 got me a book about Jimi Hendrix, because she knows how much I love his guitar playing! She said, "I hope this helps you, but please, no playing the guitar with your teeth!"
Whenever I read out loud the cats gather 'round to listen no matter where I am.
I just watched an old BBC documentary narrated by Slash, it was really good!
I've gotten so many comments on this photo, people must really love Jimi Hendrix!

JL2 is painting a portrait of a really sweet movie star and wonderful Facebook friend, can you tell, from this blurry photo and canvas wet with paint, who this is?
Okay, this is the beautiful Jewel Shepard! Jessica (JL2) wanted to make something Jewel can keep or sell, maybe Del Howison could sell for her. She needs all the help she can get, so if anyone wants to help out. Let Del, Jewel, or Jessica know!

I ran a bath for JL2 and brought her some coffee. I asked her if she liked the bubble bath I bought and she said, "Can you get me some half and half cream, baby?"
So I went and opened a carton and when I came back in she was busy writing and I didn't want to disturb her, so I just poured the carton into the bath and she screamed, "NOT in the bath! In my coffee!"
I didn't know, 'cause I had been talking about the bath. She said it was expensive, but now she loves the way her skin feels!

Mankind faces nuclear armageddon and must build colonies on Mars and beyond, Stephen Hawking has said.
JL2 and I were talking about this and terraforming and she asked me, "What planet would you like to colonize?"
So I said, "I'd like to try Uranus."
She said, "I bet you would, but that ain't happening!"
