2005 book list

Wheee, I remembered to update. :P Here’s a list of all the books I managed to read in 2005 (plus a few from 2004 >.>). (List started January 22, 2005.) I was trying to read 100 books in one year. I didn’t read that many, just half (including the few from 2004 ^^;). Another goal I’d like to accomplish in life is to read 100 books in one year! (Even though that would amount to reading one book every 3.65 days. …Unless I did it in a leap year, then it’d be 3.66 days…)

It’s kind of weird. I look over the list, and I think, Wow, I read that book then? It seems like so long ago… Like The Handmaid’s Tale or The Unbearable Lightness of Being. I want to reread Ender’s Shadow again. XD (Even though I already have about a half dozen books on my to-read list, not including class required reading. *ack*)

Also, wow, I’m gone for only one week and WordPress is updated. Hmmm, maybe I should leave other things alone and maybe they’ll get updated too… (Note to self, upgrade WordPress after backing up current state.)

here there’s only air

I feel sick again. Maybe it’s because I’m resting on my lungs and I’m not getting enough oxygen. ^^;; *has really funky lungs/lung muscles and therefore cannot sleep on her stomach ever* But I is too tiiired to sit up. I also don’t want to sit at the kitchen table. ^_^;; I wanna lie down. But I won’t take a nap. Otherwise I won’t be able to fall asleep tonight. Last night I fell asleep at 1. o_< I actually heard “There There” on my Radiohead album. o.o I never hear it when I listen while falling asleep. ^^; Then I woke up when SM00 turned down her radio. o_O I’ll never understand my sleeping/waking patterns. Or whatever.

I need more sleeep. Not only do I miss notes in class (hm, I think I don’t remember a thing she said in GEAH today >.<), but I tend to not pay attention while driving … But I think I was more awake today than yesterday. ^^;;; Proof? Yesterday the cars ahead of me were going 50 to 55 (and I do mean “50 to 55” … also “55 to 49” and “49 to 53” and up and down and back and forth and … gahh! don’t you people know how to keep your foot on the gas pedal???) and I didn’t really care. I was too busy trying not to tailgate. ^^;; But today I was mad as usual. ^_^;;;; Really, this car in front of me went from 50 mph to 60 mph. Then from 60 to 54. *twitchtwitch* (Yes, the speed limit is 55. Your point being?) And I’m so tired that I kinda sorta forget to ask God to protect me from harm … -_- Oh well. Today is Wednesday. Absolutely nuffing on tv. Hopefully I’ll be in bed by ten. ^^;;

Last night, while falling asleep, I got that feeling I had when I was delirious where I’m ginormously huge and everything around me is big as well and everything’s crowding in on my breathing space, even though everything is so far away from me, and I’m gonna suffocate. o_o Yeah, I didn’t fall asleep for a while after that. But I don’t think I have a fever. I mean, maybe a slight one (99), if at all, but still, nothing high enough to make my brain go wacky. I kept feeling yesterday like I had a fever, but I was sweating, so I knew I didn’t. :/

Oh well, enough of that. I finished The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress!! XD Cooool ending. Except … *whacks* It’s so unfair!! (I hope no one who’s reading this is planning to read TMIAHM.) Mike died! ;-; It’s all so saddening … *sniffs* Oh yeah, Prof died too, but still, he died two times before that, so you get used to the idea. ^^;; But Mike isn’t supposed to die!! Wahhhh!!

… Moving on.

Yesterday I found neilgaiman.net. ^^;;;;; Baaaad. *stares* *stares more* *looks at almost empty wallet* *stares longingly at Death and Dream merchandise* There’s an Endless poster, a poster of Morpheus “capturing the gothic, baroque, moddly lonesome, and grand qualities of the Sandman” (:b~ yeah that is so me), these two statues of Death and Dream that are $195 each, a Death notebook (which I would not write in, so sue me), and a Death wallscroll. *.* Need wallscroll. Neeed. ^^. Coool stuff. *sniffles* I really want.

Also, yesterday, ’cause I was in the looking-for-stuff-I-want-but-can’t-buy mood, I was looking at Amazon.com’s recommendations for me. ^^ I added The Sandman: Endless Nights to my wishlist, and Sandman: King of Dreams, a book about the comic series. ^^;; And no, this is nowhere near obsession. :b

But anyway. Since I was on Amazon I saw that boot on top of the page and remembered my quest for my perfect pair of boots, and went looking through Hot Topic at their boots. ^_^;

stupid arguments, books, and parking

(Everyone knows I don’t treat the subect titles seriously, right? Good.)

This is how tired I am. I read “Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid …” as stupid argument. o_o Oh well. I dunno what’s wrong. ^^;; And I’m too lazy to contact support.I was getting bored with it anyway. Ahaha. I got rid of the table border lines, and I have no idea how. o_o Couldn’t figure out how to make them come back, either. ¬_¬

Guess what guess what! I is about 40 pages from finishing TMIAHM!! XD I don’t fully understand why it won a Hugo award, though. I like his Time Enough for Love better. A little bit better. Not that much.

I also started reading The F***-Up (no the title is not really censored), which I bought two Fridays ago. On Saturday I also started and completed For All Time. :b I’d been waiting the loongest time to read that. And I think it’s a less than stellar ending. :( Oh well. Then I read Death: At Death’s Door. ^^; Why did I start those three titles? Hm. Because of another title. Namely, Art History, volume I 2nd edition. x_X

Anyway. Back to TFU. I forget when I’d heard about it before. Maybe two or three years before. But uh … yeah. I just saw it sitting at Waldenbooks in the manga section, and since I didn’t see anything else I wanted, I bought it. ^_^; I like the beginning. I’ve read only two or four pages, and it’s rather interesting. But I put it down to try and force myself to read art history. Picked up For All Time instead. :b

Today … when we got to the car after classes, this car was parked on the driver’s side … waaay over the line. Another two inches or so and it could have whacked off the side mirror. I asked Noelle, “How am I supposed to get in there?” and this girl in the parking lot said, “I was thinking that just a second ago.” Ahaha. But you know, I really don’t have a right to be mad since I’m not a good parker either. ^^;; Then again, I never leave my car when it’s sitting on (or OVER) the line or if it’ll be hard for the car next to me to get in or out. Urgh.
