What have you just read?

 I just finished up  The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. It was a lovely piece of confidence work that envelopes an entire city. I can't wait to read the next one, and for the planned 5 more to be written.

What are you reading now?

Shards of Honor by Lois Mcmaster Bujold. This is a reread since I finally convinced Jeff to read the Vorkosigan series. I now have to remember what happens.

Do you have any idea what you'll read when you're done with that?

Probably Warrior's Apprentice which is the next in that series and is a pretty quick read. The pile of library books continues to grow even if  I keep reading.

What's the worst thing you were ever forced to read?

I've never really been forced to read anything, except for maybe in school but even then most of it was enjoyed, either for the content or the writing style. Yes, I even enjoyed Charles Dickens... I was that kid.

What's one book you always recommend to just about anyone?

Right now, Feed by Mira Grant.

Admit it, sadly the librarians at your library know you on a first name basis, don't they?

Yes, but they were my friends before they were my librarians...

Is there a book you absolutely love, but for some reason, people never think it sounds interesting, or maybe they read it and don't like it at all?

I know some of my friends don't like Seanan's series, but that's ok.

Do you read books while you eat?


While you listen to music?


While you're on the computer?

If the book is on the compuer, if not then I will use the internet as a way to give myself a break from the story

When you were little did other children tease you about your reading habits?

Oh yeah, but when you are the first to read everything in the kindergarten class, having kids tease you doesn't stop you from reading.

What's the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn't put it down?

Deadline by Mira Grant, I think

Have any books made you cry?

Lots, Gayle Greeno hit the cat- owner nerve, Mira Grant , more than I can remember right now.

It's been going around like the pox, so here I am, infected.
  1. For the first four years of school, I was in 5 different school districts because of some redistricting. 
  2. I like chickens because they're pretty and tasty, I started raising them because of this.
  3. There have only been two years of my life without cats: the year I lived in the Czech Republic and my freshman year at OSU.
  4. My first word was "Daisy", for the spaniel mix we had when I was a baby.
  5. Dogs have been in my life just as long as cats, although I do not have one currently, and they mean just as much.
  6. I was reading at a fourth grade level by the time I got out of kindergarten.
  7. At one point, after my parents split, they were living at opposite ends of the house with their at the time significant others. Surprising, it worked fairly well, though there was a lot of tension.
  8. I was an archaeology major before I switched to Textiles and Clothing.
  9. I really dislike going to the dentist, the novacaine makes me bitchy, and I rarely get out without cavities.
  10. I have the molars of a 50 year old from clenching my jaw.
  11. I still get excited when something I work on looks fantastic.
  12. I'm of French, German, and Irish descent on my dad's side.
  13. And of German, Swiss, and English on my mom's.
  14. But I love Russian/Slovak pagan myths more than I do Celtic.
  15. I really like working specialty retail, not big box, you get the entire spectrum of people but the pay tends to be crap.
  16. I have never drastically change my hair color.
  17. I'm envious of people with dark blue eyes, it's so striking.
  18. On my dad's side of the family, out of all the girls I am the tallest at 5'5". This does not include those who married in.
  19. I spent much of high school engrossed in tv and books, my escapism at it's highest.
  20. I also discovered fandom at this point, starting in Farscape and  Mercedes Lackey, slowly working my way through to Milliway's Bar.
  21. The most frequent place that I burn with an iron is my stomach, as it is right at the height of the ironing board and my shirts drift up.
  22. I grew up with a bowl hair cut. It was compulsory in the ways I could be nerdy and outcast.
  23. Glasses were required in kindergarten, I'm farsighted while the rest of my family is near-sighted.
  24. I love sleeping in the summer with the windows wide open, a breeze going and me  in just a cotton sheet.
  25. Thunderstorms are a beautiful chaos that I love to listen to.

From [livejournal.com profile] calluna 

1. Go to the
Wikipedia page for astrological signs.
2. Find the page for your sign. Scroll down to "associated traits". Copy that part, and the following "physical traits" section.
3. Italicize the traits that actually fit you. Strike out the ones that are completely opposite of you.

LEO - ( I know, weird, huh? But my birthday is the 23rd of July so there we are)
Astrologers broadly agree that the following are the characteristics of leo

  • Creative / enthusiastic 
  • Faithful / loving
  • Broad-minded / expansive 
  • Dramatic / vain
  • Impulsive 
  • Generous / warmhearted
  • Pompous / patronizing 
  • Bossy / interfering
  • Dogmatic / intolerant
Some think of Leos as being usually averaged height tall yet some short, with high cheek bones, full lips, trim athletic legs( they would be if I exercised more), strong physical features, well-defined appendages ( hands(stubby!), feet, etc.), and large, deep ( can blue/grey eyes be deep?) eyes. Leos also tend to have very soft skin and thick (I have lots but it is very fine, not thick)  hair that shines in the sun. It is said they tend to keep their heads held high and look down their noses at others.

Ok, so maybe I'm more of a Leo than I 've made myself out to be....

Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Balanced, Secure, and Realistic.

20 Impressionist, 10 Islamic, 1 Ukiyo-e, -19 Cubist, -10 Abstract and -8 Renaissance!

Impressionism is a movement in French painting, sometimes called optical realism because of its almost scientific interest in the actual visual experience and effect of light and movement on appearance of objects. Impressionist paintings are balanced, use colored shadows, use pure color, broken brushstrokes, thick paint, and scenes from everyday life or nature.

People that like Impressionist paintings may not alway be what is deemed socially acceptable. They tend to move on their own path without always worrying that it may be offensive to others. They value friendships but because they also value honesty tend to have a few really good friends. They do not, however, like people that are rude and do not appreciate the ideas of others. They are secure enough in themselves that they can listen to the ideas of other people without it affecting their own final decisions. The world for them is not black and white but more in shades of grey and muted colors. They like things to be aestically pleasing, not stark and sharp. There are many ways to view things, and the impresssionist personality views the world from many different aspects. They enjoy life and try to keep a realistic viewpoint of things, but are not very open to new experiences. If they are content in their live they will be more than likely pleased to keep things just the way they are.
