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)
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*
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!)
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.
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.
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. ^^;
