I gave in to my addiction and bought Bullet by Laurel K Hamilton and a Kresley Cole book and a Christopher Moore book. I rationalized I need something to read on my honeymoon on the beach but in truth I need to escape this reality. No real thoughts yet on Bullet only read chapter 1 so far.

Watched – The Hurt Locker – the other night and all I can say is it is intense. I’m not usually one to enjoy war movies and I’m not sure I enjoyed this but it was not a waste of my time or money and I have recommended it to some friends. I have to hand in final counts today for the wedding stuff. I am going to schedule myself a massage, 2nd fitting for dress is Sat.

This whole wedding process has made me realize who my true friends are. I always knew I was not close to many girls and well this process has solidified it. but more to come on that later.  For now I keep repeating in my head:

I am slowly going crazy 1,2,3,4,5,6 switch – crazy going slowly am I 6,5,4,3,2,1, switch – I am slowly going crazy 1,2,3,4,5,6 switch – crazy going slowly am I 6,5,4,3,2,1, switch etc etc etc….

Team of Rivals

August 24, 2010 at 1:02 pm (Books, Life)

Started to read Team of Rivals – The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin. So far its ok on page 60 out of  754…

At my bridal shower we got lots of dishes and pots and pans and glasses. Now we packed up the old and just aren’t sure what to do with them. We are contemplating donating them just not sure where. When my father passed away I donated all of his clothes and things to a mens halfway house. There are some up north in the Adirondack’s that help people in need – maybe one of those…

Wedding day is creeping closer and I am still a barrel of nerves.

Island of the Sequined Love Nun

August 20, 2010 at 1:30 pm (Books)

I am a bookaholic I am truly addicted to reading. What I have come to find out is I read faster when I want to escape my current reality. I tend to have at least 3 books going at once. Christopher Moore is one of my favorite authors lately because his books are just fun and as I read I can see the story as a movie playing in my head (title of the blog is a book of his). I have read Carol Goodman she is localish author good stories but I could predict all 3 that I read. I am a stubborn reader, if I start a book I have to finish it. I’m reading Gregory Maguire’s A Lion Among Men but I must say I am struggling. I may have to search out a Kim Harrison, Laurel K Hamilton or even Kresley Cole (supernatural fantasy romance thriller type of stuff. Maybe I will start reviewing some of my books…

Book Review

June 3, 2009 at 3:35 pm (Books) ()

My mother a few years ago gave me two books that had to do with being a bride and getting married. Now that I am engaged I have started to read them. So far, my reaction to the books is they are a load pooh and I don’t mean the fuzzy sweet bear. Society baffles me I have accepted each change in my life and I feel open to discuss these changes with my life partner and those people I have chosen to surround myself with. I have been with the same man for almost 10 years and if anyone dares say to me “are you sure about this” when I rant about how he forgot to do the dishes a. doesn’t really know me b. I will very explicitly explain to them how despite the fact that this man drives me insane somedays I can’t imagine anyone else in the world I would rather have drive me insane. I can be very verbal when I have to be. These book seem to have been written for women who keep their feeling bottled and don’t express opening what is going on in their head. I get in trouble many days for being to expressive. It talks about how I should be feeling like a part of me is dieing as I am reborn as a wife. Nope. In fact I take a bit of offense to this. I say each change, child, adult, wife, mother etc. is a progression, a growth. I still have a part of that child in me. The child part of me loves to play on the swing, look at the world for the lovely colors, jumps in rain puddles and loves openly and honestly. I am still reading these books because I am curious next how they explain the death of adulthood and the birth of being a wife. But I was compelled to share this small load with the few who read this random cascade of thoughts.
