Ten on Tuesday: 10 movies I'd like to see at the theater

Ooooh... is this a wishlist for the movies I wish had been made?

1) Old Man's War by John Scalzi
2) The Moon Goddess and the Son by Donald Kingsbury
3) Bridge of Birds by Barry Hughart
4) Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey
5) The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
6) Sunshine by Robin McKinley (heck - anything at all by Robin McKinley!)
7) Alphabet of Thorn by Patrica McKillip
8) All of the "Eve Dallas" books by J D Robb
9) Sundiver by David Brin
10) Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde (although I don't how they'd make a movie where each of main characters can only see one color.)

Unfortuately, a quick glance at Carole's site showed that she meant for us to talk about the actual movies available in the theater... so here we go...

1) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1
2) Skyline
3) Unknown
4) Megamind (which my family has already seen, so I'm probably alone for this one.)
5) Season of the Witch
6) Faster
7) Voyage of the Dawn Treader
8) The Tourist
9) TRON: Legacy
10) True Grit

Of course, if I actually have time to see even half of these, it will be a great December!

Ten on Tuesday: 10 ways to simplify your life

Uh-oh... this list is going to be a lot of "do what I say, not what I actually manage to do..."

1) Keep only one credit card.
2) Pay all your bills on time.
3) Cook your meals ahead of time (I do most of my cooking on Sunday and Monday evenings.)
4) Pack your bag at night.
5) Always put your keys in the same place.
6) Charge up your phone and computer every night, too.
7) Do the dishes before you go to bed.
8) Clean out the fridge a couple times a week, and label all the left-overs clearly.
9) Do the laundry every day, instead of twice a week. (I know this doesn't work for most people but it really helps me out!)
10) Get enough sleep that you can think straight!
