Damn you, Itunes exclamation marks!  Where the hell do you come from?  What have you done with my songs?

Yes, it's signed by all the band members.  And, Emerald, it's better than the other one.  You know. *wink*

I saw the movie Dreamgirls and loved it.  The first 15 minutes had me captivated, and the costumes, the performances and the music are all done perfectly.  I didn't know Eddie Murphy could sing, but, man, can he.  Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce were fabulous.   The person I saw the movie with turned to me after about 30 minutes and said, "Wait, is this a musical?" :D  He wanted to see Norbit. 

I read Gossamer by Lois Lowry in about an hour, and Lord knows I'm not a fast reader.  It was recommended to me by a teacher friend, and was discussed when award time came around last month.  I liked it and think it would make a great novel to "teach" to middle readers, and a great fantasy novel for young readers who don't like fantasy.  Of course, I compare all her books to The Giver, which I consider one of the best books written for children/young adults.  Ms. Lowry needed to redeem herself with me, as I still haven't forgiven her for the ending to Messenger.  Redemption was found in Gossamer.  What Lowry does very, very well is create a believable new world in just a few pages.  There is never an extra word in her books, and she creates the real vs. dream worlds of Gossamer just as well.  The novel is a slight 140 pages, but we ache with love and hurt for the characters in the brief time we are with them.  There is an old lady, a small boy, a tiny dream-giver with a gossamer touch, and her elderly teacher.  Oh, and a sweet, sweet dog, for which I am always a sucker.

I'm loving me some Jane Eyre, btw.
