Today I finished “At Midnight” by Jennifer Baker. It was supposed to be based on Cinderella. I really liked it.
It was about this girl named Ella. Her father had recently got married…but something happens to him and she gets stuck with her new stepmother and step-sisters who are horrid to her. The one cool thing, you get to also see it from the princes’ view. His name is Will. His issue is he wants to find a girl who likes him for him. I rather liked how it showed both their views.
I’ve had this book sitting forever. I had picked it up at a used bookstore ages ago. One of those books that I meant to read, but took forever to get to. Slowly getting through all my books. Actually, got most of em done. But, anyway, I really enjoyed it. Its a nice modern take on the fairy tale.
She has another book in this series (which is called Once Upon a Dream) called “The Rose” which is supposed to be based on Beauty and the Beast. I went and ordered a copy of that. That and the Sailor Moon Short Stories manga. So glad they’re doing those too!
Since I finished that book though I did start “Anne of Green Gables” by L. M. Montgomery. I haven’t read much yet (since I will mostly read it at work), but seems decent.
My poor mom though is cursing me (not really) since she caught my cold or whatever.
Feeling a lot better. Still feeling a bit woozy, but a lot better then yesterday.
And look what came!:
And you should go bow to Derpy!:
They were cheap on some things. Paper hats for example…and no glitter on the cutie marks this time, but otherwise I’m pleased. Pretty much got it for Derpy and the changeling queen. The others are cool too though I had half of em except the ones that are just with this set. Was a nice surprise after my nap.
Earlier I did go out for a bit. Me and my mom went to Hallmark. Then to Applebee’s for lunch. I had a coupon for a free meal since my Birthday’s coming. I had that new honey and pepper thing with chicken and shimp. The sauce was really good! I’ll have it again the next time I go. And after went to the pet store. Needed some food for my birds. Got them a bathtub since they like to take baths. And then I napped…for many hours. I can actually rest now. Yay!
That reminds me…I finished “The Catholic Children’s Prayer Book” by Louis M. Savary and “Tidal” by Amanda Hocking. “Tidal” was good. Very hard to put down. Started “Conversations with God Book 1″ by Neale Donald Walsch and “Elegy” by Amanda Hocking.
…As in my new canaries. That’s what they were named.
The yellow one is Shining Armor and the greenish one is Cadance. Originally I just got Shining Armor. He had been with Cadance there and they liked each other. They were feeding each other. My sister felt bad for Cadance so she went and got her. They were so happy!
Went over to my sister’s with my mom and dad a d my dog. We watched the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls movie, which is pretty good. Not bad like people feared. Though my dad left during that. After we got ice cream and picked up my schedule from work. It’s not horrible, though they cut my hours. I can’t wait till the kids go back to school….
I got a package today!:
The Sailor Moon Star Locket, and Derpy from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!
That’s it. Hoping to be role playing tonight. Last night of my vacation sadly…
Just finished messing with my Logitech wireless mouse. Was acting up. It kept doing double clicks on one click. I moved it to another USB port and seems okay. Stupid thing.
Had to go to a wedding shower for my one cousin’s fiancee. I hate these things. On the plus I got a hand soap that smells like cherry blossoms (originally had Citrus Mint, but did some trading ) and won a basket. I picked this giant one with a plate, bowl, pitcher (which is really why I picked it), and some mugs. The basket itself was nice too. So that was a plus. It didn’t last as long as we expected too. Yay!
After we got home went through the baskets. My sister also won one. My mom was bummed that she didn’t. So, I let her pick out one of my mugs. After that I took a nap. Woke up, ate some leftover chinese, and here I be.
Hoping to role play on Caludin.com. Hard to say if my one friend will be on. In the meantime Lunar Eternal Blue. And I should do some reading too. We’ll see.
So tired…either my normal tiredness or cause of the pain meds I’ve been taking. They are supposed to make you sleepy. But it’d be an awful delayed response. I took em hours ago. I only take them when I work since that’s when it hurts the most. I can deal with it at home. I move more at work, so it tends to bother me more there. Been using a stronger cream which seems to work pretty good too. My mom thinks its likely I bruised my lower back. That’s where it mostly hurts. And if I did it’ll take a long time for it to heal. Could be worse, but still sucks.
I could easily fall asleep right now…
I know I shouldn’t if I want to stay up for a bit tonight, but I may lay down…usually ends up being a mistake since I get so tired and never want to get up.
Our fridge doesn’t work anymore. Well it hasn’t for a few days. Luckily its still under warranty, so my mom can have em fix it. Sadly, the part they need won’t come for like 5 days. Right now most of the meat is over at my grandma’s. And the bottom freezer is staying cold so some stuff is in there. And other stuff is in a cooler. Still sucks though.
I’ve been reading books where the characters lived in the old years where they didn’t have any of this stuff. Its kinda sad how we can’t seem to do without it.
Naturally I guess its getting warmer out. I mean if we had to we could of stuck stuff in the snow. Like the drinks and stuff.
In a bit going with my mom to get stuff for dinner. We’re having chili tonight. Mom’s not sure where she’ll store it. But maybe my sister can store it in her fridge at home. We’ll see. Either way yummy chili! I love my mom’s chili.
I hate when I procrastinate. I had started on cleaning my room, but stopped. The computer distracted me…
Today, I was off from work. Last night had spent the night at my sister’s with my dog. And on top of that got to role play lots on Caludin! Though I was mad I conked out in the middle of it. Sorry! I should know better then to lay down while waitings.
Today, went out with my mom and sister. Did some shopping. All done with Christmas shopping except for my dad, which I’ll get done this week. I got a little something for myself. A bath set of cherry blossom stuff. It smells lovely! I can’t wait to try out the soap petals. Afterwards we went to Outback Steakhouse for dinner. They had an awesome peanut butter pie!
Apparently, Arata the Legend is being made into an anime finally! Its supposed to air sometime in spring of 2013 in Japan. It’d best come out here! *shakes fist* Go to Arata-Anime.com to check out the promo, or just check it out below!:
I’ve been reading My Little Pony Friendship is Magic fan fiction lately over at FIMFiction.net. Found some real good ones! I might return to fan fiction writing eventually…I have some I never finished. And maybe return to my own original stories too.
I finished “A Confusion of Princes” by Garth Nix a few days ago. I loved it! Working on “Hidden” by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast now.
That’s it for now. Might go back to cleaning. But might now.
Bla…my good glasses (I have two. One for work, one for home) one of the lenses popped out while I was cleaning em. I called my mom (who’s over at my grandma’s) and she said to have someone take me over to get em fixed. The only one home right now is my dad, so I told him and he was all “I can fix them.” I didn’t want him to. I wanted to take to get fixed. So, I called my mom up again. She talked to him and finally said she’d take me to get them fixed tomorrow.
My dad just angers me sometimes. He kept going on how he fixed his before. Good for him. But these are my glasses. I’d rather get them fixed at the place.
The good news is I did get the lenses back in (on my own! ) so I can wear them. Its just not too secure.
Course my dad is all mad now. Threatened to not take me shopping tomorrow. Whatever. He likely will anyway.
I’d so love an nap right now. I got to bed late last night and even when I did get in bed, I couldn’t sleep. So, not much sleep. But, I don’t quite want to and I just showered so I want to wait till my hair is dry. Or mostly dry. Plus got stuff to do. Gotta clean, do laundry (I could probably hold off a day on that if I had to), and put my mom’s elves around the house (decorations). Plus other stuff I’d like to do.
