Drama!

So I didn't think it was going to happen, but it's been three weeks and already there's some very unwanted drama. Keith and Nikki (roommate) cannot get along and therefore cannot be in the same room, because as we didn't realize before, she is extremely loud mouthed and annoying and will not shut up for one second--clearly no bitterness or anger there. Sorry, had to vent. I'm being optimistic that I'll find some kind of compromise, but right now, it's very frustrating :(

In terms of books, I am finally reading Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. They're filming the movie right across from my office, so it inspired me to start it. I'm not very far, but once you get past the first half of the first chapter, it does start to get interesting. It just took me about five tries to actually get that far. I'll try to keep you posted on how that's going. At the rate I'm going, it's going to take a while.

I miss you guys!

Balance!

Holy crap! Wants to read everything! (I know I'm still kinda stuck on this being a reading blog). So I'm halfway, or a little more, through with Lirael and then has the third one but in the meantime am reading a BUTTLOAD of plays and human rights nonsense for everything else! Wheeeee!!!

And this is completely unrelated but has the same title and is awesome!

For Now

So for now, we are the General Stuff Blog. Other titles welcome. How are things in Boston other than cold and snowy? Things in LA are sunny and warm, but as I already told Emily, I miss the cold :) I know, I'm he strangest person ever and probably the only person to ever say that!

I am who I am!

Oh you know you want one!

Reading Sucks...

Ok so I haven't had the chance to read Lirael in a while (if anyone else besides Anne reads this soon, I'm reading Lirael and have decided to use this blog to just post random things about random things I'm reading!) and it's quite sad. At home I go through a book at least every 3 days but since I've been back here it's much harder. Now I a forced to read Human Rights: A Very Short History, the concept of which is hilarious but becomes significantly less entertaining in practice! Tomas Paine, thanks, but I only care what you think in the bigger scheme of things. I have absolutely no idea what your exact words were and how eloquent they apparently were at that time...
This book makes me nap...and I haven't even started Antigone yet. But apparently I'm supposed to read this first so I can look at the Text of Antigone through the honed lens of "human rights." Great fun...obviously.

BEER!!!!

Okie so I'm at the part where the king is like "Oh, by the way, your mom might die...but not really... soooo you're gonna have to be the abhorsen even though you're a sissy...sorry." Hehe

And Lirael just found all the stuff in the chamber that was made for her thousands of years ago and is oh so very close to explaining all the confusion to me. You know, the second time in the library is not nearly as annoying as the first time. In fact, there was no boredom to be found! Aaaaand I still like the puppy hehe.
