Jenny, a friend and colleague at MCM (Marine and Coastal Management) at SeaPoint, has gone on cruise. And she asked me to housesit and give some company to her cutie little cat, Glitz. She left for Zanzibar; no one would believe she went to work… Yet, work is part of the trip. The Coelocanth cruise starts on the South Africa coasts and goes all along the African east coasts, all the way to DarElSalam. They study the oceanography of the area, particularly the eddies. It is both a great project and a great place to work! Good luck and have fun Jenny! In the mid time, I play with Glitz and get used to the new “home”. I’m getting old… It’s getting harder and harder to adapt to a new place, new neighbourhood. Oh well! Nobody needs to know… On a different subject, I am rereading Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince before reading finally the Deathly Hallows… I’m sad already! It’s going to be a hard read, and it ‘s going to be the last. Think about it, no more Lord of the Ring, no more Harry Potter, there is not much to look forward to anymore. I have one author I follow, a series of 6 books, the 3rd book was released at the beginning of the year, the next one should be out in 2 years. (from Allison Gordon, I think she is Australian). Nice and original story. For a change! It is hard to get original work in fantasy for some reason anymore. Honestly! You would think they do not know that part of writing a book involves “creativity” … it is not fanfiction, people! Be inventive! Create your storyline and your characters! I’ve been checking Harry Potter’s fanfictions today. I usually read “slash” stories exclusively, for a very good reason, most gen stories are simple crap. But today I was looking for a sweet, fluffy fic with Potter and Luna Lovegood. I feel they have something those too. Good chemistry and all. Great potential too! And I love that character (Luna not Harry). Well guess what? There is very few of them and most of them are appalling but it is worse if you look at all the hetero out there, most of them H/GinnyW or H/Hermione, but bad!!! Incredible! Please people do not write! You do not know how!
