Next burning question and catchup
Monday, December 1st, 2008

Since I’ll be away from the computer tomorrow for doctors’ appointments, I thought I’d give you a quick update on DD’s doings and then pose another burning queston.

Yesterday, I finished a short story for a collection of erotic romance shorts. On spec. Which means no contract and no guarantee of publication unless they love it. I loved it. That’s what counts. And if it gets passed on, no doubt I’ll find another home for it. Thanks to Virginia and Maura for giving it a read and showing me the errors of my ways.

Today, I worked on an interview for RWR Magazine’s Writers on Writing column. I’m sure I sounded like a complete flake, but I couldn’t very well ask someone else to make it up. It will be published pretty soon, so I’ll let you know when you can find it.

On Wednesday, it will be back to the quarry for me as I dig back into my Dark Realm book, which is getting away from me at the moment. I’ve asked a good friend of mine to give it a read, and since she’s taking so long, I know she’s trying to figure out how to throw up all over it in a nice way.

So until I get back to my computer tomorrow night, here’s the question I want you to think about:

What is your all-time favorite scene from a movie?

    It’s an oldie, but it popped right into my head!

    “The Year of Living Dangerously” with Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver…the kiss in the rain. Sigh.

    Valerie! Good one!! Kisses are always memorable if the tension has been building toward that moment. Every time you watch it after that, even disconnected from the story, you get that same warm feeling.

    Sigourney Weaver & Ron Perlman in the basketball court from Alien Resurrection. Just about as close to shifter foreplay as you’re going to get from Hollywood.

    Oh Heck, any just about any scene between Ripley and Johner works, but this one….*battery check*

    Bookdragon! You know, I’ve never seen Resurrection. Now, I’m damn curious!

    My favorite is the dance between Belle and the Beast in Beauty & the Beast. There is just something so touching about people who have overcome their initial perceptions of each other to develop such strong feelings.

    My favorite scene from a movie is the final scene in Bridget Johns Diary when Darcy leave Bridget’s apartment after reading what she wrote about him in her diary and she runs after him into the snow with nothing but a pair of panties, sweater and sneakers on only to find out that he only went out to get her a new diary for their new start. This never fails to make me feel better.

    My favorite all time scene is in the musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers when they go to the barn raising. I just love the dancing with and fights over the girls.

    Karin!
    That scene in Beauty and the Beast blew me away the first time I saw it. Didn’t know they could put that much realistic detail and wonder into a hand-painted cartoon.

    Rasha!
    My favorite scene in the movie is that “bitch” fight between Colin and Hugh. Hilarious!!!

    Lisa!
    Love 7 Brides, but my favorite part is him singing “Bless Her Beautiful Hide” and chortling because I know where the movie is going!

    Kh!
    There isn’t a sexier screen kiss than the one in The Notebook.
