Some photos for Monday...  not a lot happening but have to get some impressions done at the dentist for new bridge.  One of my front crowns is going to be added to it, which means he has to remove the root... ugh.  But not till Friday [to get the new bridge back].  Until then, Coffee cup Mona Lisa, wonderful optical illusion, a glorious Tardis fridge, a dapple-grey melding into winter, clever hands, fantastic shot of lightening striking the SanFran Bridge, a true white lion, the Floating Stage of the Bregenz Festival In Austria, a Horse made from driftwood by Heather Jansch, wonderful ugly/handsome Vin Diesel and maybe the most adorable kitten shot of all.  Have a great week!

I always love the photos you find! And I wish I could have that TARDIS refrigerator.... or this TARDIS book shelf (talk about bigger on the inside!):

oh, i LOVE it! i think i'd adapt the lower middle part for my computer and keep my printer, all my papers and stuff in it - it's big enough for all of it ... *drools*

well I just finished one of my favorites of the J.D. Robb's books: Betrayal in Death... do you remember it? There is a hit man who is brutally taking out some of Roarke's workers in order to distract Roarke from a huge heist that is planned... It is an interesting conspiracy, and although it was easy to guess the conspirators (because Nora Roberts has to make her bad guys totally obvious) it still unfolded in an interesting way...

The thing was, I totally expected the evil hit man guy, Yost, to escape from the FBI and come for Roarke & Eve (and Summerset) when they were at home. I was actually disappointed that we didn't have some amazingly violent climax... I thought Yost's suicide was lame and anti-climatic.

Does that make me a bad person?

i don't remember off-hand - over 30 books here! If you are pretty sharp you can pick the bad guys fairly easily, if you care to. i'm happy to go along for the fantasy of lovely tech, a life with no money worries, a man who buys his wife's clothes [a truly remarkable woman who doesn't care what she wears or what she looks like!] and the people in Eve's life - with the adorable Mavis and stalwart Peabody. i picture Rourke - who does have a first name but doesn't even want his beloved wife to use it - like a young Gabriel Byrne, one of the few Black Irish i actually like.
And no, it doesn't make you a bad person; you'll have enough amazingly violet climaxes to come. lol

You beautifully listed most of the things I really like about these books: they are characters I could actually see myself as friends with, people who it would be fun to know. I also get a kick out of Nora Robert's view of the future (we finally get rid of guns, women can get paid for being Mothers & raising their children, and we get flying cars! LOL).

And yeah, it is daunting that I'm not even half way through her 'In Death' series!
