Before the Storm  
I hear thunder all around and the sky is getting dark so I guess I'd better post before the power goes.

I did mean to post yesterday but I got caught up in a book. Strange, I know. Anyway, I've been caught up in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Yes, it's a bit of a Potter knock-off but only in the fact that the boy is young (12) with special talents, instead of a school, he goes to a summer camp where they are divided into cabins instead of houses, and his two best friends are a boy and girl. I think if look at it on its own merits, it's fun. Plus, I've always loved mythology, esp Greek. I think I was in 3rd grade when I discovered my sister's copy of Edith Hamilton's Mythology. I found the first book when I was in MD and I was in a book crisis. I didn't read it until a few weeks after I got home, having forgotten I had it. They've already made a film of the first novel and I think it'll be out later in the year. I'm just lloking forward to seeing Pierce Brosnan as a centaur. :) I did find some of the books online so if you want to try that route....

Both the writing and stitching are movong along slowly. I plan to get some more done while I watch Andy Roddick tonight.

The quote is from LOTR unless I'm very much mistaken (I *think* it's from the Fellowship, Gandalf speaking to Frodo - but I may be remembering the film version of events over the book version!).

And 1 is 'Dream a little dream of me' (or whatever the title is) but I don't remember who sang it. Didn't the Beautiful South do a cover version?

Yes on the quote. It is from "Fellowship" and it is Gandalf. As for the song, it's "Dream a Little Dream of Me", this particular version by Mama Cass.
