So I went to homecoming last night. It was great.

Was she a goer? Does she go, eh, does she go, eh? I bet she does, I bet she does, say no more, say no more. A nod's as good as a wink to a blind bat!

Anything that could hold 2 D cells is way bigger than the examples so far.  But looking for bigger battery powered toys I'm getting nowhere.  Just too many of them.

Well, I appreciate your efforts thus far. You've gotten closer than I ever have. Thank you, dude.  :)

In honor of my 31st birthday, I have written a list of 31 ways I am awesome.

26)   November is my favorite Month

Tell me more of this.  November lacks an identity for me.

Oh, and happy birthday.

Thank you :)

And my love of November is kind of nostalgic. Back where I grew up, the weather started to get nice and "cold" in November, it is the begining of the holiday season, and that is the month Interview with the Vampire came out oh so long ago. it came out on November 11th, to be exact
Anais is the Coolest Butterfly I know  ;D

um...this is going to show how effing nerdy I am but....


On November 11th I watch Interview with the Vampire and I choose a Victorian novel (I am not super strict on if the author is British though) and that is my novel of the month.

This month it will be Les Miserables.

And then I will celebrate December by reading War and Peace.....





I am so effing nerdy


Edit: I also start listening to my version of christmas music.....Sgt Peppers. I had a weird childhood

Interesting. I can see trying to read some kind of Victoriana being appropriate; not really sure why, but it seems to fit the bleak nature of the month.  Though I don't think Hugo counts as a Victorian. :)

Yea, I not exactly strict on that part

Well the nationality she accounted for but it was published during the reign of Fat Vicky and it has a vaguely Victorian social consciousness* despite being set prior to Vicky ascending the throne, a bid like A Tale of Two Cities in that regard (though Les Mis is not set during the French Revolution).

Related to this, has anyone ever heard the original French Language version of the musical? I've heard a few tracks (don't like the Javert, but I Dreamed a Dream is so much more brutal than the English one and that's pretty stunning) sadly Spotify doesn't seem to have it to listen to in its entirety.

*that of a Victorian Bleeding Heart, though Hugo also seemed to really like wallowing in the seedy side of things.

Whenever I'm feeling low and sorry for myself I meet someone in worse shape than me.

At work today I met the cutest young boy.  He was twelve and very well mannered.  He has had two heart attacks and a stroke.

Poor kid.
