Callie has been right there helping me.  It's really been funny.   I was also roasting a chicken and when the timer would go off or the dryer would buzz she'd come and get me and meow.  I really think she was telling me there was some strange noise and I better go check it out.

I spent the day finishing the corrections for my galley proofs, which I will send off to the publisher in a day or two, after I've had a chance to review them.

We watched a terrible movie last night, MARRIAGE ON THE ROCKS with Frank Sinatra, Deborah Kerr and Dean Martin.  It was part of a Sinatra DVD box set I had, and I'd never seen this film before.

The basic story premise had potential, but the script was very unfunny and the director knew absolutely nothing about comedy timing.

Where was Billy Wilder when they needed him?

The only bright spot in the movie was Cesar Romero.  He was fun, but it was like he was playing in a different movie.

The DVD of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will be released tomorrow.  If we are very, very lucky NetFlix will receive our returned DVD's and will send Girl to us.  If we aren't lucky on the first round it could be a long time before we receive it.

Speaking of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, I had a customer today who was outraged that we did not have THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET'S NEST in paperback. . .the book hasn't even been out a whole month yet!

Were you able to calm the customer?  I wonder if the person has seen other people reading it in paperback.  Of course they then would have been reading the Hornets' Nest version as I did. ;)

My mom said she saw a commercial for the first and second movies.  And they did what i expected. They did not make it clear that the movie is in Swedish with English subtitles.

I'll bet there will be a lot of people who get the dvd who will have no idea.

I know that maybe a lot of people will not like the idea that it is in Swedish. But I still think that the promos should advertise this.

That's funny that someone would be outraged. I mean if a book is not available in paperback why would she think you would miraculously have it??

The idea of a promo is to sell.  Maybe not advertising the language is intentional ;D  If anyone reads what they are buying/renting they will know it is a foreign film.

I looked at the NetFlix queue again and the movie, to be released tomorrow, now says "short wait" instead of the release date.  Since the post office is closed today I find it hard to imagine Netflix is processing anything.  I still have hopes it will be mailed to me tomorrow.  I'm wondering if a DVD can be mailed to arrive on the release date.

Really?  Where did you see that?  Have you read if the dubbing is good?

No, she was pissed off and threw the other two books back at the table from where she had picked them up. 
The haze, the heat and the humidity will do that to a person.

I thought she was better educated:  she had her clippings from Entertainment Weekly's special edition on The Millennium Novels, and yet, she was insistent that there was yet another book to the trilogy titled, "Millennium."

Did you explain the author died before completing the book?

I'm going through the reviews of the disc online, and I'm only finding English tracks (stereo and 5.1 DD) on the blu-ray. . .but, there are not a lot of reviews out there yet. . .

Yes, but she was very put out about the third book NOT being in paperback.  That was the major bee in her bonnet.  She would have bought all three, so she said, IF the final book were in paperback.  It was when I explained to her that since it was a new release, the paperback edition would probably not appear for ten months to a year that she got into her hissy fit.

She acted as if she has never purchased a book before. It is so ridiculous it is laughable, but then I wasn't the one dealing with her.

You just finished reading the books.  I didn't want to watch while I was still reading them and enjoyed a little space between the last book and the DVD.

I never look at that.  I usually wait until we watch the DVD and see what the options are.  Thanks.
