Heat wave

12 07 2014

It’s times like these that I really appreciate cold weather. It’s so much easier to deal with: put clothes on, dress in layers. You can only take off so many clothes, fan yourself till your wrist tires, travel only to places with air conditioning. In my bedroom, the hot air hangs in there, despite the open windows, draped over me while I sleep fitfully.

Ugh. Where are you winter???





Diamond of Darkhold

30 05 2013

This is the first book I finished on my Kobo, so I wasn’t sure how to take a picture of it while also holding a camera. The brightness of the cover made it impossible to take a picture of it with myself, so I had to use the inside cover of the title instead, at the risk of putting myself in the dark (oh no… not really).

Anyway, The Diamond of Darkhold made for a moderately satisfying ending to the City of Ember series (although the bit about the aliens baffled me). People of Sparks will always be the best book of the series, in my opinion. It’s a book that, if we all lived and practiced by, there might not be a thing as war. Or so we can only hope.

I want to be so much

26 08 2011

but there’s such little time.  Or perhaps it’s the feeling of wanting to do so much — excitement — that paradoxically creates a feeling of helplessness, of not knowing where to start.

Resignation.

But I’m better than that.

First things first: need more frozen yogurt.
