into the last quarter

isn't it fast... we are in the last quarter of the year. sure flies.. and on some levels, i'm looking forward to the end of the end and to a new one.. there seems to be so many things that i need to complete by the end of the year and i'd sure be glad when these things/projects/tasks gets out of the way. But once i complete them.. i don't know want i should be focusing on.. wat new projects i should be taking up. Hence the apprehension in the new year. Any suggestions on wat new stuff i should do/hobbies to pick up?

know something though? i bought my 2006 calendar yesterday. Bit KS.. but since i don't get to see nice calendars for my use all the time.. no harm getting it first.. since i know that i'd be using it come soon enough. (At the rate that this year is passing by). But meanwhile.. it'd be staying in my drawer for the time being.

BTW, did you know that the third book of the Bartimaeus trilogy has been announced? i'd be glad to see that book come 1 Jan 2006.

Ptolemy's Gate (The Bartimaeus Trilogy, Book 3) by Jonathan Stroud

Not forgetting Howl's Moving Castle out in DVD in Spring 2006!!

Oh.. and Eldest (Inheritance, Book 2) by Christopher Paolini is out in the market... quick go and get it. i don't know if there is a pricing mistake. The hardcover is selling the same price as the paperback. It's available for S$26+. Considering that normally a hardcover sells for over $30.. it's a good deal. Needless to say.. i've gotten my copy.. and am re-reading Eragon so that i can recall what happened in the first book before i read the second :)

edit - this is an excellent site on the Inheritance Trilogy. i kinda knew that the movie is in the making.. but i didn't know that it's already being filmed and the cast includes Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich!!!!

Edward Speleers Eragon
Chris Egan Roran
Jeremy Irons Brom
John Malkovich Galbatorix
Djimon Hounsou Ajihad
Sienna Guillory Arya
Robert Carlyle Durza
Garrett Hedlund Murtagh

And i still can't get over that Kino is selling The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy : and Other Stories by Tim Burton at $36.. sigh... too expenisve for me to get.
