Thoughts of the day

I just got home from a wake. I should be grieving for a life lost, but whilst I was sitting there for two hours waiting for my mom to finish catching up with yet another unknown aunt, I couldn’t help but think of some things:
  • How much I hate going to any gathering where old relatives would be present. “Did you gain weight, dear?” “Where’s your boyfriend?” “Goodness, child, what do you mean you’re not getting married?”

  • Even with my very sweet letter to Santa, he still hasn’t brought me the gift I want. UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE. (He said he’s still looking!!! *grrr*)

  • Dreaming about Nutella cheesecake is not funny when I am gaining weight as I breathe. I know it’s the bloody holidays but that’s not an excuse to eat non-stop! Not even when said cheesecake was being fed to me by a yummilicious Greek god. *pause* Wait. *thinking* Er—no, fatty! (Though the yummilicious Greek god is verra welcome. Heh. :P)

  • I did an incredibly stupid stupid STUPID thing this Christmas which I’d promised myself I will never EVER do. And I can’t stop thinking about it. :S Oh god... *cringe* Trollop will strangle me.

  • Just because a certain someone has an emotional range of a teaspoon DOESN’T MEAN I HAVE IT TOO! *seethes* Fucker.

  • Thinking of interesting things someone could do with leftover Christmas ribbons and bubble-wrap and scissors. 1) Strip me naked. 2) Coil bubble-wrap around me, from underarms to shins. 3) Tie ribbon around my waist to prevent me wriggling. 4) Grab me, listen to my squeals of delight while he pop the bubbles. 5) Cut hole in bubble-wrap. 6) Have his uber wicked way with me. Oh my...

  • What’s the best book I’ve read this year, worst book, books I’m looking forward to... Harry Potter and the Deathly Horrible Title Seven definitely top that list.
What about you? Any thoughts you want to share with us? What about your best and worst books of 2006? Or books coming out in 2007 you can’t wait to get your hands on?

"Emotional range of a teaspoon"? LOL! I wonder who this is. :)

First, Harlot, you are NOT fat. My average body is already insecure with yours so stop saying that!

Second, I can't believe even an innocent bubblewrap would get naughty-fied by you! :P

Now my list:
Best book - Read a lot of good books this year but I just finished JK Ward's LOVER AWAKENED and I loved it, so there!

Worst book - SIMPLY UNFORGETTABLE, Mary Balogh

Looking forward to: SEP's Natural Born Charmer, SK's Dream Hunter, if McNaught and Crusie have any new books coming out, then those too.

OK, so I came up to this little town to visit my mom for the holidays and went to the bar for a drink with my mom. This guy I met 3 years ago, in the same bar, was there. He heard I was in town and came up because he heard I broke up with the bf and thought I was sexy ;)

Anyway, we had a few drinks, ok a lot, and he walked me out to my designated driver's car (my mom's car) and he gave me a hug and then kissed me. Now here I am haven't kissed anyone but my ex in 8 years (we started dating when I was 17 almost 18 and broke up a few months before my 26 birthday) so I was a little nervous. This guy is 6'1, nice muscles (he works in construction), nice smile/teeth, green eyes, dark hair and smelled WONDERFUL. He is funny, sweet and a good dancer.

So, here I am, knowing he is gonna kiss me, I'm nervous since I haven't kissed but 1 person in 8/9 years and he is hot and then we kiss. His STUPID tounge ring that I previously thought might be fun, kept hitting my teeth and he kissed like he had a snake tounge, darting in and out. How disappointing :(

GWB, did he "eat" your lips too like he's trying to remove it off you? I really hate that!

Danielle, nah, don't worry. ;) Getting ready to go to the wake again. Have no idea how it's done in other countries, but here, wake for like three days and then the funeral.

Anyway, be back later!

Harlot, whoever this "insensitive wart" is, I hope you'll feel better next time you see him. ;)

I think the whole world is waiting for Harry's last book. I'm beginning to feel the excitement too with HP5's trailer and then JKR's announcement of book 7's title.

Best books: Shopaholic series

Harlot, emotional range of a teaspoon? Heehee... I'd like to know the story behind this. I feel sorry for the knave (whoever he is) that pissed you off.

About the best book, I just finished THE TENTH CIRCLE by Jodi Picoult and totally loved it. I also would like to thank you BBs for THE BRONZE HORSEMAN. I found this magnificent book because of this blog.

Worst book. Not exactly the worst, but JK Ward's LOVER AWAKENED is such a BIG disappointment.

Looking forward to quite a lot of books. Like everyone else, HARRY POTTER 7, TATIANA AND ALEXANDER (i know it's been released years ago but I just ordered a copy and can't wait to read it!), anything by Lisa Kleypas, SEP, Jenny Crusie.

Sorry for the Wake Harlot ... sounds a bit like my Christmas and New Year. I get to know a nice fella and lo and behold he is leaving for overseas for 3 flippin weeks. Gone already! I'm not even within range of the teaspoon. Sigh! Story of my life. Bad timing huh?
