happy boxing day :)

I hope you all had a lovely and happy Christmas–I know I did..

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been feeling a little out of sorts and blogging just hasn’t been appealing, but inspired by what Nikki’s been doing on tumblr, I decided this afternoon to dust off my little tumbr account (that I started right before moving over here to wordpress) and remember/guess my old password..so if you want to hear, or see, rather, more of me, I’ll be over here.  I like the idea of having short little updates and links and pictures and things, so we’ll see how it goes for a while!

The Ultimate Austen

If I had a lot of free time on my hands, and fewer brain cells, and some more money, I would start a new blog/project.  I would make it my goal to read and review every Jane Austen knock-off book out there. 

I would have to first master my deep-felt moral opposition to this genre.

And then, after cataloguing and analyzing the mounds and mounds of these works, I would write my own Jane Austen knock-off/sequel/diary/whatever.  And it would be the perfect storm of Jane Austen knock-off.

It would, however, take me a really long time to get to this point, as you cannot take one step in a bookstore without seeing three of these books.  I find it morbidly fascinating.  I would be reading for quite a while.

Have I written about this before?  I know I’ve thought about it, but I couldn’t find an actual post.

So, any sponsors for this venture?

Finding God in “New Moon”

Do you remember when that series of books came out?  “Finding God in ‘Harry Potter'”; “Finding God in ‘The Lord of the Rings'”.  I never actually read any of them, and I don’t think I’m going to be writing one any time soon, but I did have kind of a God moment when I went to see “New Moon” Saturday night.

No boy/vampire/werewolf will ever be there 100% of the time.  No matter what he promises, he will let you down.  There’s only one who will always be there, who will always protect you(me), who will always keep his promises–Jesus.

That’s all (shortest “Finding God…” book ever).  So obvious, can’t believe it took a $9 vampire movie to remind me. 

And on a semi-related note, please pray for Liz today!

“Piazza?” “I was eloquent!”

Thanks for all the great comments about writing on the last post..and as a segueway..

Kathleen Kelly: The truth is, he was the one who got me thinking about writing.

Joe Fox: Mr. 152 felony indictments.

KK: Mr. 152 insights into my soul.

JF:  Oh, yeah.  No competing with that.

You most likely know if you’ve read this blog for 2.5 seconds that “You’ve Got Mail” is my all-time favorite movie..Now I’m even channelling Kathleen Kelly in my clothes.
