Friday Fill-Ins – Underwear and the Produce Section

1. You know you’re old when your teenage child’s lips are moving and sounds coming out, but you haven’t got a clue what she’s actually saying.

2. My heart is divided between boxers and briefs (luckily, I’m a woman and can choose granny panties, which incorporate both: they go up to my waste and cover my thighs at the same time).

3. (Honestly, the only things that come to mind on this one is so beyond PG that I can’t post it) is what I need RIGHT NOW!

4. I have felt the produce, I have known the depths of the frigid chill of the frozen food section. (Seriously, are you trying to get me into trouble??)

5. Gah, won’t these people stop calling my house asking for Dave? Dave’s not here, man!.

6. Find the clicker as soon as you can!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to finishing Twilight (I’m hooked!), tomorrow my plans include maybe do some gardening (yeah, right!), some laungry (hahaha) and get some of Caesar’s The Conquest of Gaul read (okay, I’m done lying to myself), and Sunday, I want to have finished When We Were Romans (planning to finish a book worked so well last week… I finally finished The Richest Season Wednesday instead of Sunday 🙂 )!


BTT – Other Worlds

Are there any particular worlds in books where you’d like to live?
Or where you certainly would NOT want to live?
What about authors? If you were a character, who would you trust to write your life?

Okay, I was just going to take a pass on BTT this week, but I couldn’t resist this question! In the few minutes between school shopping and registration, housecleaning, cooking dinner and reading, I want to tackle this question. 😀

Any particular worlds from books I would love to live in… There are several books that I’ve read that I can’t help fantasizing about living there. Lord of the Rings, Narnia, and Eragon are some of the more fantastical worlds to live in. I would love to be Stephanie Plum, too. I’d love to have a Grandma Mazzur. And how can you not fantasize about being Elizabeth Bennett with Mr. Darcy (especially if he looks like Colin Firth)!

Where would I NOT want to live? I definately wouldn’t want to live in some of Palahniuk’s worlds, or Bentley Little’s…. or Stephen King. Pretty much any world a monster’s gonna eat me is a world I DON’T want to live in. But others less fantastical would be: Don’t want to live in the world of The Giver (too oppressive and controlled), Farenheit 451 (ditto),and any world created by the Marquis de Sade (no explanation necessary, I hope).

If I were a character who would I want to write me? Janet Evanovich could make my life fun and sexy, with just enough danger to keep life interesting. Jane Austen could make it romantic with a bit of satire. Maybe Andrew Davidson, he could make it epic and full of love, but I wouldn’t want to be crazy or burnt to a crisp to get it.

I know… Dr. Seuss could write it. He could make it fun and colorful with just enough of a hint of love without being porny with it, and I know there wouldn’t be any monsters to get me, because all his monsters are good 😀
