Oh my! What a week… or two :-) We’ve had the season finale of LOST, which seem to pull in every title and concept of every show for the last six seasons, and left us with quite a quandary (meh, I’m not in a quandary about it, but some people are I guess). DON’T WORRY! NO NEED TO CLICK AWAY! I’m NOT going to post spoilers or anything. I hate it when I watch a movie, or mention I’m planning on it, and that one pain-in-the-ass tells you, “Don’t bother watching it, John dies in the end.” (Actual title of a book, John Dies in the End, which has been on my wishlist for about six months or so… NOT a LOST spoiler, so stop white-knuckling the mouse!)
For the most part, I’m not much of a TV viewer anymore. I watch my TV shows on DVD from Netflix, on the Internetz, or OnDemand. LOST, however, is the only show the world stops for (at least, at my house it does), and I hafta wait until February of NEXT YEAR before the NEXT new LOST episode… AND next season is the LAST season (okay fellow Losties, I’m sure we can organize a memorial for the loss of our life show).
But, with the end of this LOST season we are greeted by the return of Mr. Sun (Yay!) and the flowers and the green-green-grass and the song birds (even the ones that sing outside our windows at 2 in the morning) and the garden and….. books? what are those? and what is a blog? Seriously, WHERE is my grill brush? the charcoal and lighter? Got a good fire going… now where did my book disappear to?
Needless to say, Spring is a distraction
Add to Spring’s already siren-like call, it’s the end of the school year, which means choir concerts, class parties, summer-school registrations (I’ve lost the paper for my oldest daughter’s enrollment, which is bad… without summer school, she don’t graduate!) We’ve got eye doctors appointments, calls to the dentist for possible lost fillings (plastic ones, so The Island had nothing to do with it ), and the question: Is it scabies? or psoriasis? Doesn’t matter, just put lotion on it! (LOL… Teulah’s dad in My Big Fat Greek Wedding had Windex, I’m always telling them to put lotion on it…. I’ve got the slipperiest kids in town!)
Ah! Thus is mi vida loca! Not living La Vida Loca, mind you, just have a vida loca. With 2 teenagers and a tweenager, all girls, a dog and three cats, could it be any other way?
And now, to announce the winner for my copy of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. All entries were randomly compiled and numbered, then the winning number was chosen using Research Randomizer. Number 12 was drawn, and that number belonged to:
Violet of Violet Crush! Email me your address so I can get that out in the mail for your reading pleasure
I wanted to add that I enjoyed Violet’s answer to the giveaway question:
“What tangible thing (a toy, record, woobie, etc) from your childhood you wish you had back the most? What does this item mean to you?”
I really really wish I had my book of Ramayan back. It was my grandfathers. I never read when I was young but I was attracted by the bright and colorful pictures in it. I spent hours drawing pictures from it. I remember my grandfather reading to me from it but I never really paid attention (come on, it’s a religious book). I wish he would read to me now
After looking up Ramayan, I had to add it to my book wishlist, it looks like a beautiful book
And now, some music to read this blog by… crap! Suppose this should’ve gone at the beginning instead! Oh well, click play and read it again LOL… or, music to comment by. Whatever tickles your fancy
OH! BTW! Those who didn’t win, despair NOT! Stephanie of The Written Word is hosting a giveaway for a copy, open until May 20th
