Read, Read, Red

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. Well let's see.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them ;-)

I lost my phone on the crazy streets of Dinkytown up here walking to class. Or maybe from class. Whatever.

They couldn't switch my phonebook over for whatever reason.

So I'm number-less.

I only know like 6 numbers by heart- and all of them but jake's aren't cell phones.

So if you could give me your numbers if we talk on the phone- that'd be great!




My mom is the worst person in the world in the mornings. I swear- she's inhuman.

Good Vibrations

Last night was wonderful. I got properly shitfaced with my dear Todd Lee & Jake & Cody B. I had been needing that. Too bad it got bad & I ended up with my face in the porcelin God with dear Todd Lee holding my hair--but it was worth it, and Todd Lee & I are going to explore St Louis this tuesday. If you have suggestions on places to go & photograph & be at in St. Louis you should comment me back with them even if they're common! I might invite Jacob, I might not..Idk haven't really decided yet.

pearsex gave me three books: Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse by Stephanie something or other. Meyers? Anyways. BEST THREE BOOKS IVE READ IN A LONG TIME. I started Thursday night & finished them this afternoon. It has been a very long time indeed since I have had the urge to do nothing but lay in bed and read until the story was finished. In fact- there are very very few books I have done that with. Gone With the Wind, Harry Potter(s), and these are pretty much it. *le sigh* im addicted.

epheme has an interesting thing called the 50 book challenge. I think its 50 books in one year. I asked her about it- but I think I shall do that this year. So, thus far I have completed 4 books since new years day.

1. The Golden Compass
2. Twilight
3. New Moon
4. Eclipse


Here are some interesting quizzes indeed:
Bam!Collapse )

ps: I guess I should add that after reading those books and finishing them I feel very empty inside. Kind of like a huge bubble of love and soul burst forth up and out of my own Aura and now I'm left with an exanimate shell.

and my dad made me watch a horrible western movie. I left in the middle of it. Horrible, absolutely horrible.
Today I slept until 3:30.


Blues vs. Redwings tomorrow night with the girls. Me, Natty, Candace, and ...maybe Dani D? ...Emily do you want to go??? Dani isn't callin back??
