If you'll read Facebooks terms of service-you should be able to see what I'm talking about. Most people never read that stuff. I didn't at first, but when I did I deleted my account as fast as I could.
I worried that nobody "got" the breakfast tea thing. I was trying to be cute, or funny-(and I really do like Rahne a lot), but sometimes that kind of thing doesn't translate well-especially if you don't usually write like that.
Thanks for the compliments!
Thank you. I hope you do to. I checked out a little bit of the Joshua AE thing. I liked it when he said, "f____ television." I've felt that way for a while.
I don't really have an over fondness for weapons. Ive only the shotgun that I bought when I was twelve. . . .and some knives. Sounds like you really did read some of my blogs. They are scattered. I used to post a lot of links and stuff, news articles, etc. The only ones I like anymore are my little stories.
Good morning to you!
I should tell you that myspace has recently near destroyed the once outstanding blogging utility. They've created a word limit for comments-and this will simply not due.
GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!! This is the sound of my roar.
"Bad myspace! BAD!"
Hubpages.com might be where my future internet writing lies.
I LOVED The Glass Castle! I had to read it for school and it was amazing. I actually finished it! No I haven't read Half-Broke Horses...YET right now I am reading "The Lovely Bones" I saw the movie and just about died I loved it so much. You should totally read it or at least see the movie. Oh and read "Dear John" I haven't seen the movie yet because I heard it was nothing like the book so I'm afraid of ruining such a beautiful book with a sucky movie.
I am totally on Facebook! That's probably the reason I'm not on here as much! Just look up Tristan Chaput. My school network says Lebanon, but I'm still out in the middle of nowheresville surrounded by the horrifying dreaded...CORN. There is so much out here it's crazy. Oh Ethan is on Facebook too, so if you can't find me look for him. :]
My dad is good. He's work work working lately, but tomorrow is his birthday. He's been taking the past few Mondays off so we can go on little family day trips since we didn't go on a family vacation this year. My mom had surgery because of gall stones and it was their 20th Wedding Anniversary so they went on a cruise to Alaska which they absolutely LOVED (probably even more so because Ethan and I weren't there complaining!!)
As funny as it sounds I used to be a crazy Twilighter and then it got popular so I was bored with it. I just hated the fact that it was everywhere and I couldn't enjoy it by myself or read it in public without somebody running up going OMG TWILIGHT!! I am VERY happy to see that there is a movie coming out soon that is a spoof of Twilight. I may just see that. :D
Hey deary! Sorry I haven't been on here in AGES. I got myself a big bad job!! Well, I worked at the local amusmant park for a while and now I am working as a shift leader at the local bakery. I have crazy hours! The most out of any of the teens there and I am about to start school! SENIOR YEAR!!! Wahoo! Ethan just graduated and is taking on the big bad world. How are you?
I've found that I can't actually read a book on a computer. I seem to have less of an attention span when looking at a computer screen. I don't really have 20/20 vision-and I'm sure that that's part of the problem, but I like to read in the reclined position with the book over my head-that I can do for hours. I do blog a lot, and I read a lot more blogs than I post(on myspace, hubpages.com)-but I don't read them if they are too long.
Here's an idea that I like: I like to believe that our web content will outlast us. I like to think that our grand kids, or great nieces and nephews will be able to read our old blogs, etc-and feel like they knew/know us-whereas you've only got old letters, should they still exist, or books written by our forefathers(and mothers).
I know what you mean! I just joined and already I am spending way too much time checking everything out. I'm excited because just finished up the book I was reading and now I can change it from "Reading Now" to "I've Read"...it's the simple pleasures in life, right? Ha ha.
Well I havent read the book you are mentioning. I think it is on my wish list though!
But I have read two other books by the same author and really like her writing style.
Maybe you can tell me more about the book and if I should really read it.
Would anyone be interested using Skype for our book discussion? It's free & we can all chat with each other instantly.
I was thinking it might be interesting to use a service like Skype or Yahoo Instant Messenger for our book discussion. This way we can all talk instantly without constantly refreshing our browser. Let me know any concerns you might have on the idea. And if like the idea I can go ahead and set up a discussion group contact list. I'll just need your user ID to add you to the contact list.
We will be discussing Jemima J by Jane Green Monday, June 29th and for those of you who have read Yada Yada Prayer group book one, we will be discussing it Thursday, July 2nd. Let me know if you plan on joining in the discussion!
June's pick~ Jemima J by Jane Green
~Jemima Jones is overweight. About one hundred pounds overweight. Treated like a maid by her thin and social-climbing roommates, and lorded over by the beautiful Geraldine (less talented but better paid) at the Kilburn Herald, Jemima finds that her only consolation is food. Add to this her passion for her charming, sexy, and unobtainable colleague Ben, and Jemima knows her life is in need of a serious change. When she meets Brad, an eligible California hunk, over the Internet, she has the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself–as JJ, the slim, beautiful, gym-obsessed glamour girl. But when her long-distance Romeo demands that they meet, she must conquer her food addiction to become the bone-thin model of her e-mails–no small feat.
With a fast-paced plot that never quits and a surprise ending no reader will see coming, Jemima J is the chronicle of one woman's quest to become the woman she's always wanted to be, learning along the way a host of lessons about attraction, addiction, the meaning of true love, and, ultimately, who she really is.~
Let me know what you think!
Hey, I was wondering if you have read any good books lately? Is there any new books your looking foward to reading? I know I have quite a few on my list as soon as I find time to read them. I'm going to Borders on Saturday and was wondering if you had any suggestions for our next bookclub read?
