I really tried to get the 50 books read in one year goal... but yeah, 2009 was pretty busy mostly sucking. (Though, yes, some fabulous things did occur as well. ^^)

So, for nostalgia, I shall list the 40 books I feasted my eyes upon in 2009!

Cut for length!Collapse )

Favorite new novel read in 2009: Jane's Warlord by Angela Knight. It's a paranormal romance novel with AWESOME sex scenes (if you can ignore one repeated word choice that just... didn't work) and some lovely woman power grr!

Most disliked novel read in 2009: Dark Defender by Alexis Morgan. Paranormal romance that had BORING sex scenes, was cheesy as hell, and so sexist that I wanted to fling the book across the room!

Amount of re-read novels in 2009: 9

Author I read the most novels from in 2009: Rachel Caine (5 novels)

Just finished Turn Coat by Jim Butcher.

It took me awhile to finish this, actually. The beginning was a bit slow, but the second half was very well done and made me okay with the first portion.

A couple spoilersCollapse )

I'm not buying Kim Harrison's hardcover until after the move. Heck, I brought Butcher's book to work with me so I could get that sucker packed after finishing it! I don't need more to move. Who knows, maybe my waiting so long for it will make the price of the HC cheaper! *Crosses fingers*

Current Mood: awake awake

If you're not caught up on How I Met Your Mother, don't watch this!

spoiler on the start screen!Collapse )

Also... I so need a Barney LJ icon.

Obama won. His speech was awesome. I got a cute, little sticker for voting.

I think tonight, for the first time in a long time, I'll be able to sleep with a little hope in my heart.

Current Mood: hopeful hopeful

Phew, I was starting to get worried that my show was turning into Xena on me! (Okay, I'm still a bit afraid of that, but this was the first non-crappy episode of the season. It's possibly turning around!)

Current Mood: bouncy bouncy

On Tuesday, Obama criticized McCain's economic policies as similar to those of President Bush, saying: "You can put lipstick on a pig ... it's still a pig. You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still going to stink after eight years."

The McCain campaign contended that the comments were directed at Palin, the GOP's first woman on a presidential ticket. In her acceptance speech last week, she had referred to herself in a joke about lipstick being the only difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull.


(Rest of article here: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080910/ap_on_el_pr/obama_lipstick)

As a woman, I am appalled that McCain would use Palin's gender in order to try to attack an innocent statement from Obama. I mean, FFS, have they never heard that line before? It'd be like Obama saying "A cigar is just a cigar" and having McCain cry out, "You leave my daddy out of this, he smokes cigars!"

It used to be that I just hated McCain's opinions and ideals. Hearing about his politics makes me want to puke.

So, wondervixen and I were talking about how we watched this show when we were kids about a mannequin who came alive at night in a department store. We also recalled there being a girl and a mouse there, but weren't sure of details. We also thought that there was a fourth character, but couldn't recall who/what.

Okay, Vixen, get ready to go down nostalgia lane!

Just got home from my interview.

Dear gods, I forgot how stressful those can be!

I think it went well, although I did forget some things about my old job and wound up being accidentally untruthful on a question. >_> (My memory was so kind, however, it remembered the answer AFTER I already answered... gee, thanks, brain.)

I'll find out in one to two weeks.

And I should probably eat something!

... And I need to catch up on LJ. I've been a bit frazzled this week. ^^;

Current Mood: ditzy ditzy

Got my first call back for an interview today, since I don't even know when anymore!

It's at 1:00 on Thursday!

Cross your fingers for me!!!
