I haven’t updated this blog in forever. I’ve recently started watching a lot of new shows, reading a lot of new books, and listening to a lot of new music.
I need to make a new CD for my car. Got a bunch of new free music yesterday from amazon.
Shows I watched today:
- Legend of the Seeker
- Once Upon A Time
- Madmen (not finished)
- The Simpsons
- New Girl
I’m going to read some of Personal Demons on my kindle before bed, read some earlier too
Games I played today:
- Eternal Sonata
- Tried to play MySims Racing and it failed on me (got frozen before the game started)
- Build-A-Lot On Vacation (laptop)
- New Gardenscapes game (laptop)
I’m currently listening to Zelda Dubstep music
Trying to decide if I should go to the Buddhist meditation class tomorrow evening.
Did some laundry and some dishes today. It was a pretty day outside.
Helped my son by taking pictures of his homework he left here and emailing the picture of pages. Tried to hook up the scanner but I think it’s broke for good. It just won’t work.

I just finished Jack Kilborn’s Trapped this morning, and it is a really gruesome, sick and twisted book. But that’s why I wanted to read it, Jack Kilborn comes up with some crazy stuff, just like he did in Endurance. I still haven’t finished his book Afraid, but I keep getting to the point where I’m not sure where the plot is going. I didn’t have that trouble with Endurance or Trapped.
I’m also reading The Passage by Justin Cronin and it’s good so far and I want to read more today. It’s fat and I can only have it for two weeks. But I decided I better work on American Gods by Neil Gaiman first, it’s due in a few days. It’s weird but interesting. I’ve been trying to read more. Also trying to write more.
I ordered four books from amazon on writing and once I get them I’m really hoping they will help me write a full length novel. I had been trying to write on one, then my writing went flat and I wasn’t sure where I was going, so I tried writing on another story, just for practice. I don’t think anyone but me would like this one unless I changed it. I’m hoping to write something even if just a paragraph, every day.
I have so many books piled up to read it’s not funny. And I’m trying to pay attention to how the authors put words together, to inspire me to write better.
Been getting into new music as well. I thought of this video I liked once, looked it up and found out the singer was Skin. I listened to more of her songs on YT and really like this one called Trashed a lot. But it wasn’t available for sale on amazon as an mp3 so I ordered the CD with the song in it. At least I know for sure there is one more song I will like, but geez $10 is a lot to pay for a couple of songs, hope I like more songs on the CD.
Also been listening to Snow Patrol. Someone on Tumblr mentioned a song by them called Make this Last Forever (I think) and I tried it on YT and it’s really good. So I bought it and this other song called Lifeboats that I like a lot. Then I looked and the library had more than one CD of their music so I checked out two of them and have been listening to them while I clean.
Speaking of Tumblr, I started a new book recommendation blog and so far have only received 3 submissions. Really hoping to get more book recs! Almost all the ones I post are my own. http://bookrecommendations.tumblr.com/ If you want to leave comment here for a book rec, just leave title and author and I’ll list you as anon if you don’t have a tumblr.
