Of knitting, running, reading… yeesh! So, very little knitting, no running, but I’ve been working tons of hours of unpaid overtime (the benefit of being salaried) to make up for it! <sarcasm off> I’ll be happy when this project is done, anyway.
Just a quick update for now, until I have more to report…
So an online Plurk buddy posted a link to her blog, where she has posted a request of fellow knitters. A noble cause, a worthwhile investment of time on the part of knitters – and especially for us blogging knitters. I strongly recommend any knitters to go visit her blog, read the post & see if you can find the time to send off an 8″ square. That’s it, just one small square! :)
So the only other bit of news that I’ve got… I have actually found book #2 in my life that I am utterly incapable of finishing. I have tried so many times to read Intensity by Dean Koontz – who happens to be one of my favorite authors! But I’ve never made it very far into that one, it just hasn’t grabbed me.
So what is the book that has finally unseated that one? Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. Seriously. I tried to like the book. I managed to keep at it until chapter 20 or something. But I just could not bear it anymore – I only got that far because I wanted to see if it got any better. I understand that it is very popular & thousands of teenage girls the world over just love it. For the love of God, WHY?! I would not have been able to make it through even when I was a teen myself. I won’t even get into how I feel about a teenage girl that obsesses over some boy’s looks & completely gives up her free will, common sense & her own individuality just to become his girlfriend. Oh and worse than being a vampire, he’s just a downright control freak stalker.
I went online to see if I was somehow alone in my complete bafflement over the popularity of this series. I found out that I am definitely NOT alone. One of the best bits I found in my wondering was the chapter summaries at Twilight Sucks! They are hysterical – and dead on! :D
