  2. I haven't checked back in here in a while.... I've mostly just been focusing on Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, but I have been reading a few other things so far this year. I'm trying to pick up the pace as well, since I won't reach my goal if I keep on at this rate. Starting a small rant here, because it's been on my mind lately: Personally, I enjoyed the Hunger Games books. Based on their popularity, I'm starting to think of them like the Twilight novels. Some people like them, some don't, but they're books like any other, really. I've seen tons of people hating on the Twilight books just because they're popular, because they're not actually sucky enough to justify so much hating on their own (I'm a fan, personally, though not a fanatic XD). There are worse books out there. I'm starting to see the same trend with the Hunger Games books (not here, just in general)--some people give them a chance and don't like them, which is fair enough, but some of those people go on to start spouting how awful they are and how they're just another fad and they suck and blah blah blah. And people who don't even bother reading them do the same. It's kind of a pet peeve of mine, really. I say, if you don't like something, fine. That's your own business. What other people like is theirs. That's all there is to it. /end rant Like I said, mostly just been reading the Discworld books I got from Ithi (I just finished Mort). I don't have ALL the books yet, but enough to be getting on with for now. Plus I have other books to read. I started reading Sourcery, but I'm not entirely sure I'm going to finish it right now. I might be feeling like finishing a reread of the Hunger Games books first, since I started one, or something else. I don't think I'm in the mood for rereading anything else, atm, but I'm not sure. I might go ahead and try to finish the Ranger's Apprentice books that are out. I'm not sure how many more there are. XD I just hate checking out books from the library when part of my goal this year is to get through as many of the books I already own as I can. I do really like Discworld, by the way. I have so many laugh out loud moments, it's awesome. I think they're brilliant.
  3. Happy Birthday! *togas*

  4. Oh great...my first mosquito bite this year. If I predicted fortunes based on bug bites, I'd say it looks to be an annoying year with ridiculous challenges that will make my brain itch. Since I don't, though, I'll just say that there will be a whole new level of skeeter carnage coming, courtesy of yours truly. Be afraid, skeets. Be very afraid.

  5. HUNGER GAMES IN A WEEK OMGOSHWOWCAN'TWAITAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Taking another trip down memory lane by listening to songs from my childhood and youth... =D

  7. It is so gorgeous outside!!! I hope it stays this way....

  8. Hey, Ryrin, to streamline the updating of the official pinned thread, it's actually a lot easier to just edit your original post with the books you've finished instead of making a new post. That way Raena doesn't have to keep merging your posts and it's way easier to keep track of everyone who's participating.
  9. I'm very upset right now...I don't have to work till later than usual this morning, so I decided to get up at my usual time and exercise. I have an elliptical trainer, why not, eh? Well, no. A while ago, someone decided to go in that area of the basement and organize all the power cords lying around and whatnot. Till now, I just assumed the adapter for my elliptical was in the pile somewhere. So this morning I'm all optimistic about exercising and stuff, and then I get downstairs and look for...

  10. Iowa Weather, will you just make up your mind already? What's it gonna be?

  11. I'm gonna try my hand at a tiny bit of gardening this year. *looks at thumb* We'll see if that's actually a hint of green there, or if it's staying resolutely black.

  12. Fair enough. It gets better though. IMO, at least. XD
  13. Okay, trying to avoid spoilers...but at the end of book one there is actually a huge opening left for the other books, if you look back at what Haymitch says after the games. It's just the first part of a bigger story.
  14. I think Mason is the only tone-deaf person in the world who can sing without me wanting to rip his vocal cords out. Actually, I think it's cute, too. Which should tell you just how much I love that boy. Oh, he is so lucky. =D
