1) I was very pleasantly surprised to find The Colour of Magic on DVD at a Wal-Mart today. There just aren't many people in this are who would have any idea what The Colour of Magic is, and I frankly wouldn't have even expected to spot the DVD in a Wal-Mart in Greensboro or in Lexington, KY. It's just not a Wal-Mart sort of thing. I know for a fact I've never seen a single Pratchett book in one.

2) I have a puppy now, and she's adorable. She's a tiny, black-and-white ball of fur. I don't expect her to get big (her parents are both fairly small dogs), and I'm hoping that she's as intelligent as I've been led to believe her parents are. I've been told she's a cross between a Feist, an Australian Shepherd, and an Airedale Terrier. Those are all smart breeds. I had initially given her the very boring name of Lucky (I found a four-leaf clover the first time I set her down in the yard at my house), but my brother has launched a heavy campaign to rename her Leia since he named his puppy Luke Skywalker.

3) Looking back, it seems obvious that I would become a fangirl. Even when I was small, I had that sort of obsessive mindset that led to collecting things. My first fandom was horses. I had so many porcelain, ceramic, and glass horses it wasn't even funny. I had horse pictures on my wall. I had books about horses. I collected My Little Ponies. And I even, finally, had my own horse.

My horse died several years ago, and it had been years before that before I did anything more with him than feed him some corn and call him "Fat-head". But now that I'm settling down, I find myself wanting a horse again, a desire that grows worse every time I'm around some of the great beasties.

I spent a little while this evening down at my aunt and uncle's house visiting with their horses. They currently have four horses in their pasture, three adults who belong to them and one colt that belongs to a friend of theirs. I was perfectly content to do nothing more than stand in their field petting and talking to the horses.

I'm such a sap.

4) I'm moving into office space! Yay! I've set a tentative move-in date of September 1 to move into some shared space with two other attorneys. I think it's going to be fantastic. I hope it's going to be!

5) I got Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader from Amazon this week (along with the Watchmen and Coraline dvds). I think I'm going to spend tomorrow afternoon reading it on my porch.
