Re: Shelfari and Good Reads

I love shelfari. I bookmarked my 50 book challenge thread, so every time I finish a book, I record it there, then add it to my shelf (if it's a new book). It's been so helpful in keeping track of what I've read. I set a goal for 100 books this year, and reached that before I went back to school (thi...

Re: Gutter Gals & Guys - Baking Peach Cobbler

FYI: The gutter bartender is Dizzypsy. I'm pretty sure I put the Gutter Song words on the gutter archive, but here they are for immediate enjoyment: The Gutter Anthem (to the tune of My Favorite Things) Obelisks of granite that sparkle in sunlight. Baking with wild dogs, that just doesn't seem right...

Re: Gex X--the 30 something thread

Yuck, too many people getting sick! I hate colds! A little sniffle and congestion takes on new meaning when you have asthma. I was praying so hard I wouldn't get sick. 2 years ago, I got sick in October, and through the winter, had 9 different colds, one after another (and on top of each other). I w...

Re: Gex X--the 30 something thread

oleander - thanks for sharing. You had me in tears. My favorite Christmas memory was after my first year of college. I lived away from home the first year (local school, though), and was very much wrapped up in the newness of being on my own. But the following year, I moved home, and soon after met ...

Re: BYU is Stephenie a Mormon?

We LDS do have a lot of strange terminology. Our congregations are called "wards." And our youth are categorized as "Young Women" and "Young Men." In the YW organization, the 12-13 yr olds are called Beehives, the 14-15 yr olds are called Mia Maids, and the 16-17 yr olds are called Laurels. Each age...

Re: I should be... but instead I was...

I should be studying for tomorrow's final (which I haven't even read 5 of the chapters for) but I'm just plain old procrastinating. I don't like the class, and I don't care about the material, so it's hard to force myself to study. The Lex is much more fun.

Re: The Sound of Music---What instrument do you play?

I've played piano for 24 years. I play for my church choir, and my kids' elementary school choir. Tonight was the kids' Christmas program, and they did great. The director and I are both volunteers (asked because the teachers wouldn't do it this year) and we only had 6 weeks of practice. I'm so impr...

Re: Gutter Gals & Guys - Baking Peach Cobbler

Spooky - I read The Hunger Games, and I highly recommend it. It's made my list of favorite books (and I'm picky). I don't know what I think about sequels, because I mostly enjoyed it from a sociological/moralistic standpoint. A few other actors to think about for possible Volturi . . . Jason Isaacs ...

Re: SLTA-Salt Lake City Twilighters Anonymous

For any other Utah fans that may see this, we, the SLTA, entered a tree into The Festival of Trees, benefiting Primary Children's Hospital. Well, decorating was Monday, and the auction was yesterday. Our tree sold for over $4000! I am beyond thrilled. It is so cool to have a tree do so well - both t...
