Cressida Cowell has a new book in her How to Train Yor Dragon series. After seeing the above tweet and the accompanying trailer (voiced by David Tennant), I rushed to Amazon to purchase the final installment of the adventures of 14-year-old Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third and his Common or Garden dragon Toothless, only to find this isn’t the final book. Rather, it’s a compendium of dragon species, drawn from Hiccup’s boyhood notebook.
Although I’ve been a member of Twitter since 2008 (at least that’s what Twitter tells me), I’ve not used it other than to redirect posts from here and SciFi Chicks. However, my preoccupation with Dancing with the Stars prodded me to visit it more frequently. (And increase my “following” tweeps to a whopping 27. (I had 29 but gave up two, one after DWTS ended; the other, @midnight, because its “hashtag wars” created too much Twitter noise.)
Even with only 27 followings, though, Twitter has been abuzz lately.
From Television Without Pity’s Dancing with the Stars Forums:
Anyone who says they don’t have a crush on Charlie White is lying.
If you put the essence of sunshine, rainbows, and puppies in a jar and shook it, you’d pour out Charlie White.*
I started this post a couple weeks ago, about how I’d become smitten with the bowl of sunshine that is Charlie White, and that he’d be voted off Dancing with the Stars over my dead body. Well, it happened, so I must be dead. 😥
You know Charlie White, right? He’s the mop-top Olympic Gold Medalist for ice dancing (with his partner Meryl Davis, of course). Since I didn’t watch one iota of the Olympic coverage this year, I only “met” Charlie when he came to be on Dancing with the Stars. The funny thing is, I hate that show.
