I tend toward fantasy sci/fi anyway. There are lots of fun escapey things to read that aren't vamps. Have you read the Ender series by Orson Scott Card? Ok, that one's not "fun" but good reading. I'm reading The Sharing Knife series right now (alternate universe-romance) at Blue's recommendation. I really liked David Eddings whole saga. How about The Time Traveler's Wife
? This one is being made into a movie and besides an interesting story, the most amazing thing about this book to me is the construction. You don't even figure out it's a linear story until half way through the book.
QOTD: What's on your screen saver and why?
Remember the evil professor that seduced our flawed, but mostly loveable Zoey Redbird in House of Night
? Who wouldn't fall for a guy that looked like this
without his shirt on while reciting poetry?
So tonight...I have the annual Christmas party for my women's group at church. We're doing a white elephant gift exchange. Two years ago I wrestled with a number of people over different gifts. I was finally left with something I did not choose and when I opened it...it was a white, industrial, size 38G bra. Naturally I put it on, stuffed it with wrapping paper and modeled it for all to see. It was a great moment and I was really glad it didn't end up in the hands of someone with shall we say less of a sense of humor. They didn't do the gift exchange last year so I have hung on to this thing for TWO YEARS! Tonight, I exact my revenge...like Dr. Evil, waiting time has given me the opportunity to indulge my evil tendencies. Tonight the bra will go back into the pile and it will be new and improved.
I'll take a pic after I finished it up today. Let me just say it has bells, sequins and fring now. hehehe It has...the Christmas spirit.
My hope, of course, is that whomever gets it will continue to add to it's gaudiness and bring it back again next year.
