So, I totally know why I haven't posted in forever. It all started when I moved out of my Father's house. Once we moved out and Julia moved in with us, I really haven't been as depressed or angry as I was during the time I lived with my Father. I'm actually pretty happy. If I had more money I'd be much happier, but that's not going to happen so I'll get by!

Hi everybody!

I missed you!

Did you miss me?

Check yes [ ]
Check no [ ]

I'm going to try to be more regular. I can't guarantee anything. I say that all the time and then it takes me 8 months to post anything ever again.

So, I was looking over the news the other day and was reading about someone that ... I don't even know. He did something to break the law and so was arrested. I think it had something to do with drugs. ANYWAY.

His name? Harry Bunn, Jr.

It made me giggle.

There's a Harry Bunn, Sr. walking around out there. ;D

I don't have much to say, as you can see. Summer went well. It was busy and I barely had time to think. We have the month of August "off" from storytime and programming and it's been lovely.

Starting Monday I really need to buckle down and figure out what I'm doing programming wise for the next few months but that'll be Monday.

I've been reading a lot. Did I tell you I got a Nook for Christmas? I can't remember and I can't be arsed to look back through my entries right now. Anyway, got a Nook for Christmas. I love it. It is the best thing ever. Well, books are still better, but I love my Nookie Nook. His name is The Doctor. :D So I've been reading books. Finished The Warlock by Michael Scott on Tuesday and started Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs on Wednesday.

The Warlock is excellent. It's book five in the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. If you haven't read these books, WHY NOT?!?!? They are so good. The fourth book is a little slow, but The Warlock is back to form. SO SO GOOD. Start with The Alchemyst.

Miss Peregrine is good so far. It's been a fast read. I'm loving the photographs that illustrate the book. Fun.

OH! And I got an advanced copy of Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus - OMG. It is SO SO SO GOOD. You HAVE to read it when it comes out in September. It's about magic, romance, and a circus that you have to read to believe. I loved it so very much.

Can't wait til August 27th and the new episode of Doctor Who. I was so worried about Matt Smith and now I love him just as much as I loved Eccleston and a littttttttle tiny bit less than I loved Tennant. Yes, I'm still crazy about David Tennant. :P And I LOVE Rory Williams. Yes I do. :P

So anybahoodle.

Julia starts college next week. I've gotten her through her teenage years and into college. She is looking for an apartment/house to share with her boyfriend. She's all growed up, ya'll! (Sorry, Paula Deen moment there for a second.) She's still not sure what she wants to do, but you know, that happens. She's starting off with Psychology. Good place to start.

Devin heads back to school next week too. Hard to believe he's 15. He'll be driving before long and then we probably won't see him much.

What's that you say? That means more alone time for you and your husband?


I don't know what we'll do with it. Probably spend a lot of time on Netflix and reading. :P

Anyway, just wanted to update you on what was going on with me!

I hope you're all doing well. *MASSIVE MASSIVE MONSTER HUGS*

List 10 books you have on your bookshelf that you think nobody else on your friends list has on theirs.

I wasn't sure whether I'd have anything unusual and then I got to looking and discovered I do have some things not everyone probably has.

1. Thy Father is a Gorbellied Codpiece: Create over 100,000 of Your Own Shakespearean Insults by Barry Kraft
2. The Howling Man by Charles Beaumont
3. The Illuminated Language of Flowers by Kate Greenaway
4. Nadya by Pat Murphy
5. No Bed of Roses by Joan Fontaine
6. Romancing the Stone by Catherine Lanigan (a.k.a. Joan Wilder)
7. Field Guide to Demons, Fairies, Fallen Angels, and Other Subversive Spirits by Carol Mack
8. Films of Gene Kelly by Tony Thomas
9. Vanity Fair's Hollywood by Christopher Hitchens
10. Charms, Spells, and Formulas by Ray Marlbrough

I don't know how many people are from the U.S. on my friends list but ... is anyone else having a problem with finding gas for your cars? Nearly every single gas station in my area is out of gas and those that AREN'T out are cutting pumps off at 2 p.m. today and not opening again until tomorrow. I almost didn't get home last night because there was no place to get gas. I had just BARELY enough to coast home but there's no way I'm going to be able to go out again. I'm sure that just cranking the car up will use up the rest of the gas in the tank.

I was so excited last Monday for the Heroes premiere. I still love that show. It's good to see that some things never change. Like ranty mcrantersons )

MAN! You would not BELIEVE the traffic we have at the library now. I saw an item on Good Morning America about how people are starting to use the library more because a> it's free and b> it's free! It's fantastic. I love my library. Unfortunately I do not love the new breed of patron we've been getting who want to demand, demand, demand and then not bring the items back. *THWACK* Also, who steals from the library? Honestly? It's FREE! All you have to do is check it out and you can watch the DVD as many times as you want or read the book as many times as you want. You can even bring it back and CHECK IT OUT AGAIN! You would not Believe how many DVDs we have lost. It's insane. My co-worker purchases the DVDs for our library and she bought the Christy complete series TV show DVD, you know? Someone took the whole set and put them in their backpack or something and walked out with them. Ridiculous!

I am so excited! I have The Fall on DVD! I get to watch it tomorrow! I can't wait! I hope it's as good as my brain keeps telling me it will be. The reviews were horrible. Well... doesn't really matter. At least there's Lee Pace to watch. He's fantastic. I watched Miss Pettigrew Lives for the Day and he was great in that. Well, I can't single him out. The entire cast was FANTASTIC. I need to own that movie.

Well, I think I've babbled on about absolutely nothing long enough. I've got two storytimes next week that I need to prepare for. I hope you are all doing well! *hugs* *massive hugs*

Much love to everyone!!
