Rain, Rain

Even though I'd rather be curled up in a big chair reading a book, I'm still grateful that I get to be indoors today. I avoid overhead lights whenever I can, so I brought in lamps when I moved into this office. The dim lighting, combined with the rainy day, combined with my afternoon mug of tea... All in all, it's pretty cozy. I'd almost forget that I was at work...

It's too hard to choose! Help!

The Ender

I finished reading Ender's Game Friday after work, because what else would I be doing after a long week at work? To be fair, I was reading at a bar, and I do believe that I put on lipstick.

I absolutely adored the book, and looked into what the casting situation is for the movie set to come out a year from now. Ender will be played by Asa Butterfield, the kid from Hugo which I didn't see so I can't make an opinion. What I'm really excited about is the rest of the cast:
  • Harrison Ford as Col. Graff (!)*
  • Abigail Breslin as Ender's beloved sister, Valentine (!!!)
  • Hailee Steinfeld as Petra (!!!)
  • Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham (!!)
  • Viola Davis as Major Anderson (!)
This is such an all-star cast, and I can't wait to see what they do with the story!

*My level of excitement can be determined by how many exclamation points used. (!!!!)
