Random Stuff

I have books to review, but I have to be in the right mood to write them. I guess my mood has been more random than anything the last couple days. I particularly like my randomness from yesterday... I was laughing at the memories when I wrote them. I think I might do posts like that more often just so I can look back on them and laugh... you know what I mean? I won't remember them otherwise...

Take tonight for example. After the cookie conversation there is silence:

Him (really need to come up with something better...): What are you doing?

Me: Updating my blog. The post is called "A Day in the Life of Me." I wasn't in the mood to do a book review.

Him: Oh, yeah, what are you writing about?

Me: Elephants.

Him: You aren't blogging about what I said to you on the phone, are you?

Me: What does it matter? You are just a random person, you could be anyone! You could be several anyones. No one knows.

Him: Or, you could be making it up.

Me: Yup.

Him: So, are you blogging about what I said on the phone?

Me: Yep.

Him: What! You can't tell people what I say!

Me: Why not, it's funny? People will enjoy it.

Him: Really?

Moving on. My review of The Bleeding Dusk by Colleen Gleason is up on Historical Tapestry. I reviewed it a couple days ago, but I had to wait my turn to post it. This sort of proves the completion of the R.I.P. Challenge. I will read more, of course, but I like knowing that I actually finished a challenge considering how sporadic my reading has been lately!

Anyway, so far I have read:

The Bleeding Dusk by Colleen Gleason
The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury
The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter
The Ladies of Grace Adieu by Susanna Clarke


  1. Hahaha! You can tell 'him' that I was indeed amused! :P

    And congrats on completing the challenge already! I'm half done, 2 more to go.

  2. Hey, congrats on finishing! I'm glad you're back in that reading groove. I went over and read your CG review, well done! I'm so glad you enjoyed the book so much.

  3. tanabata: haha, I told him. I sent him a text after I read it and then he called a bit later. I didn't bring it up again, but he asked what my text meant and I told him what you said. Then he asked if I really posted about the elephants and I said of course! He said thanks and then told me he was going to be more careful what he said to me... that lasted a couple hours. He just called to tell me two stories. haha

    carl: Thanks! It seems to be doing pretty good so far. People are surprised I am finished already but if they knew me the first year you started hosting challenges I was always done really early. :)


Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
