Filling the creative fuel tank

I had a good day yesterday. In the morning I went to the gym, I ate my fruit and took my multi-vitamin. The few food transgressions I made were balanced by the two miles I jogged, so win-win.

And then Jer lit me a Duraflame fire and I snuggled deep into the living room armchair with a stack of books, an afghan, and a cat named Vash stretched across my legs. A few hours later I left my warm cocoon, but not before consuming these lovelies:

My Life in France - A fascinating memoir covering Julia Child's experiences in France learning to cook and enjoy great food:

Classical Rhetoric for the Modern Student - Rhetoric is how we use language to persuade. Every time you watch a commercial or argue that your husband should do the dishes once in awhile, you are engaging in rhetoric:

Ogilvy on Advertising - You want to know how to sell something? Do your research; know your audience. Then read this. The principles haven't changed.:

The Ultimate Sales Letter - Practical tips anyone can use to craft a sales message:

Later we watched "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" - Beautiful effects that stretch the imagination:

So here we are again. Another Monday, another deadline. Let's get to it.
