Hi

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?

HOLY CRAP.

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*

Hi Guys!

Boy, it's been a long time! Last time I posted I had just gotten married. :) Things are still going very well, but I knew they would. We had been living together for nearly two years! Getting married just made things official. I mean, it was amazing! I'm so glad we did get married. But has it changed our relationship? No. Not really. Everyone keeps asking and seems surprised when we answer no.

I've been paying monthly for this journal and realize I really need to start writing in it. There's no reason to fork out money every month if I'm not. So. My New Years Resolution is for this year, to write more often. It's been my New Years Resolution for a couple of years but I think I can finally keep it now! I've been itching to write and so I will!

So! An update on lifey type things first. I'm married. Yay! But you knew that already. We are doing good. Right now the entire fam is suffering from some sort of sinus bug and that sucks but it's nothing bad! Adam went to the Doctor on Thursday who told him to keep taking the sinus meds he's been taking and he's finally getting over it. I started feeling bad Saturday night and so did Julia. I took today off and hopefully will be well enough to be back at work tomorrow.

Christmas was good. I still haven't received my Christmas present from Ad. He waited a bit too long and apparently it is supposed to be here today. So, if it's something awesome I'll probably be back here tomorrow to post about it and squee. :) EDITED: I wrote this last night but got to feeling bad and couldn't finish. So I now HAVE my Christmas present! It was a scent locket from BPAL Well, really, the Black Phoenix Trading Post. Which one, you might ask? The Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire! It is AWESOME. And BPAL is awesome too because I got FIVE Imps. The Ghost is glorious. I quite like Knave of Hearts as well. Highwayman and Night-Gaunt were not for me and the jury is still out on the last, Verdandi. But fun!!!

Speaking of Neil and squeeing -

Photobucket

I met Neil Gaiman again on December 14th. Unfortunately the girl who was sticking Post-Its on the books with our names misspelled Renee. So I became Ronee in both The Graveyard Book and Odd and the Frost Giants. That. Stinks. But really? It's ok. I got to say hello and Thank him again and it was lovely. I also met up with a really nice local girl who sat with me and we talked Neil while we were waiting. It was nice not to just sit there like a lump while waiting to get in line. :)

AND NOW - I get to talk about things that my family is just tired of hearing me talk about!

I finally saw Star Trek and it. Was. AWESOME. Holy crap. I so wish that I had been able to see it on the big screen. Love love love it.

Also, I am in love with Up. Ellie and Carl's story just... well it just about broke my heart. I watched it three times in one day (I showed it twice at the library and then made Adam watch it when I got home!) and cried every single time at a certain point in the film. It is beautiful. I have it on Blu-Ray now (cos we bought a Blu-Ray player during Black Friday! Woot!)

TV shmeevee. I'm still watching Heroes. Yes, I know. I know I'll be disppointed in how the show will turn out but I just can't give up Zachary Quinto every week. I really don't have much to comment on it except: I'll be overjoyed if they never bring Matt Parkman back. I love Greg Grunberg but I'm so sick of his character on that show. Of course, I felt the same about Mohinder last season.

Chuck is back next week and I. Can't. WAITTTTTTT!!! I love that show so very much. Also very excited about Lost's impending return!

Of course there's also Doctor Who Spoilers, probably, ahead )

Enough talk about Doctor Who! :)

Two people are out at work today and so I'm spending a buttload of time on desk so you may hear more from me today or this could be it. I hope you all had a great Christmas and a very Happy New Year. You'll be hearing more from me! Soon you'll be sick of me. :P

Hope you're all doing well! Much love! *hugs*
