Random blah blah blahg

-I read to my little kindergartners yesterday. I love how children's books are always about loving yourself just the way you are, believing in yourself, making new friends and listening to your parents. How old do we get when that stops being the important theme in literature? The book I'm currently reading for my book club is about murder, political intrigue, war atrocities, with a twist of psychotic love triangle. The last book we read was "Cry, The Beloved Country," and that book almost emotionally did me in. It thoroughly broke my heart. Our next book is one by Dostoevsky. I'm out of ideas for this paragraph so I'll have to end it with a request. Anybody have any good suggestions for a more lighter read? Something happy? I do love my book club but I need something less dark. Speaking of my book club, someone in mine has a Kindle. I'm so jealous I can't even concentrate. Why why why do they have to be so damn expensive? I'm either getting one or a better digital camera for my birthday. Which would you choose?


-I saw 'Star Trek' and 'Angels and Demons'. Both were very good. You don't have to be a Trekkie to dig 'Star Trek' and you don't need to have read the book to enjoy 'Angels and Demons.' 'Angels' did run a bit long but there's a lot of info to get in and you feel like you've been on a trip to Rome. The style of the movie was a bit less book report-ish than "The Da Vinci Code"(loved the book ,hated the movie) so it was smoother, to me.

-I found the Holy Grail of pants for petite women at Ann Taylor Loft yesterday: pants that don't need to be tailored. That fit. Yes. Life is good once more.

-I saw a picture of an old boyfreind the other day. One that was mean and cruel and horrible to me for three years. I have no malice towards him in any way, I'm the one who let someone like that in my life. After saying that, I have to admit something. It gave me just a tiny bit of happiness to see that he hasn't aged well. He's overweight and balding. Not that there's anyhing wrong with being overweight or bald. But he's the one who told me all the time that I was fat and ugly(at the time I weighed 95lbs). Karma. It's a good thing.



-So ok I've been posting less and less these days. I have no excuse. Last week it rained EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. So I can't say it's because I haven't been home. Laziness.

Me? I'd go for the camera. The Kindle seems to me like a passing thing- I would miss actually turning pages and I hate reading really lengthy things on a computer screen.

But that's just me.

I hear you on the "finding pants" thing- I have short-ish pants for my height, so I'm constantly having to hem an inch off. I love that Alloy sells jeans in different inseam lengths that don't cost a fortune.

I'm thinking the camera too...

A nice light book is the Princess Bride. It's still in my head, but that is because it's so good. :)

My all time favorite book is "Love is Wild Assault". Not a romance paperback despite the name. It is a true story about a woman named Harriet Potter who was one of the early settlers in Texas. Her story is beautifully told by the author. It is one of the few books that I've read more than one time. I usually read it about every two or three years.You can find it on Amazon.

Thanks guys! I'm sure I'll find both at the library. I'm going tomorow.

I am loving my digital camera and post the day's pics on my photo blog every night, even if they stink. It's thrilling not to have to wait for processing, or worry about wasting film.

Sometimes I fantasize about terrible things happening to all the old boyfriends who treated me badly. You are obviously more high-minded than I am.

I'm hardly posting myself, so I can understand where you are coming from. I seem to have less and less time for computer activities and with spring finally here, I can barely bring myself to open it up after work.

Maybe once the warm weather is over I'll get back to it...and maybe you will too.

Until then, just enjoy your life and don't worry about it. Life's short...so do what you enjoy.
