This morning I had a very important decision to make. Did I want Subway for lunch and spend $6+ for lunch or should I bring a can of soup for lunch? My decision was based on if I wanted to go to the bookstore this weekend. Because if I got Subway, then I couldn't buy a new book. If I ate the soup, then I could. When your life revolves around a teacher salary your life is full of these seemingly ridiculous decisions. So, I ate soup and my friend and I are going to the bookstore tomorrow. There aren't any books I need to buy right now...but I ate the soup just in case I come across something interesting! :)
Even though I hardly get any page hits, I'm hoping that the random person who comes across this post will be able to help me out.
I've been wanting to buy an e-book reader for some time now, but can't make up my mind between Amazon's Kindle or Sony's e-reader. I'd rather get consumer input before I buy so if you have one or know someone who does, can you offer any input? Thanks!
So the other day in my Fairly Tale book group, I suggested Howl's Moving Castle as a recommedation for a group read. I got a reply stating that while this is a good book, it may not fit the fairy tale theme (paraphrased). I'm trying to work up the nerve to correct this person...but I'm not sure if I should or even how to go about doing so. If you haven't seen the movie you should! This story is basically a reverse Beauty and the Beast story and the story is full of witches, magic, spells, fire demons, etc. How does this NOT fit "fairy tale"?!
My Literary Club and I have been busy making Origami flowers to sell as our fundrasier and we've been doing a lot better than expected...with both our sales and our skill at folding paper. I find it funny that some of us get fustrated with a simple piece of paper trying to make it do what we want.
I'm a fairly simple person with a lot of ideas. I love playing computers games and taking care of my plants (aka my babies). I enjoying hanging out with friends and appreciate any quiet time I get. Living in an apt, I spend most of my down time watching movies & reading. I'm very interested in ancient history so naturally I like going to historial sites, museums, traveling, etc. I know I kind of sound dull, but this is me. :)
