I've got a few ideas for posts that I think would be really interesting. Unfortunately, they're going to involve a little of bit of research and web scanning. In the meantime, I'm alive, well, and starting a bit of school tomorrow.
I managed to read over 19 books during Christmas break. Which is less impressive when you consider that the first 16 are the 8 installments of Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse novels that I liked so much I read them twice (I actually went over them a third time, just to read the parts I REALLY liked). I also read Christopher Moore's Bloodsucking Fiends and You Suck (starting to see a theme here?) and Joe Hill's Heart-Shaped Box, which, incidentally, did not include any vampires (though there were lotsa goth chicks). Heart-Shaped Box was pretty darn good and I'm not surprised that Warner Bros. has already bought the movie rights (Neil Jordan's going to direct it, he directed Interview With the Vampire - see what I did, I brought it back to vampires!). I look forward to seeing that one.
The only music I'm listening to is the mix cd that my cousin Cathy made for me for Christmas. She didn't give me a song list so I have no idea who anything's by or what it's called, but I'm enjoying it. It makes me feel closer to her (awwww...).
