There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.
Pearl S. Buck

Monday, November 6


So Citizen has placed the definition of meh on his site. I think it describes exactly how i feel on Mondays.

I used to like them as a child! Sound crazy? Going to school meant getting out of the house, and hanging out with my friends. And the library! sighs. The library. I don't go there enough. I have recently started reading novels again. Its been a few years actually since I did much reading.

Here is the one I just finished, that my daycare provider lent to me. Shadowman. A real eerie pageturner mystery. Watch for this guy. And now that I live in California, I can relate to the location references. Cool.

Now that I am done, I want to find a new one! Whats everyone reading?


  1. I love the "meh" thing! Thanks, cux I've always wondered.

    One of the best books I've read in ages is "Middlesex" by Jeffrey Eugenides. Also "The Life Of Pi". Great idea for a post btw... I may have to steal it for NaBloPoMo.

  2. Did that sound too creepy? Because it sounded funny in my head, but when I read just felt dirty.


  3. I despise Mondays-really. I'm depressed until like Thursday afternoon.

    Have you read any of the "Anita Blake-Vampire Hunter" novels by Laurel K. Hamilton?

    They are great. Sexy-scary fun.

  4. A lot of cookbooks but I did read a really good memoir..
    I'm gonna do a post on it soon!
    That book sounds creepy.
    I love to scare myself though;p

  5. shora: no biggie. Middlesex, eh? between upper and lower sex? giggles.

    Mist!: I am used to you being "kinda dirty". and thats Okay!

    nonny: people say, happy monday,and i say Yea Right. then sock them in the jaw... and no! thanks for the suggestion.

    MsI: i love cookbooks! all mine are still in TX. but i don't cook as much as I used to. going to try tamales this week sometime! or next week... yippee!!!!!!! will post that experience. Learned from the neighbor before she took off to boston.

  6. Oh, I love good mystery novels....

    When I was at Wal-Mart the other day I picked up a good trashy novel. Jackie Collins " Lover and Players"

  7. You know, it's been so long since I've read anything. I think the last book I was actually reading was Deb's, "A Prayer Away From Healing"

  8. Still don't know if I get the Meh thing... bit slow down in ... the ... southern hemi...sphere... At the moment, I have near my bedside a book called "Across the Nightingale Floor" by Lian Hearn. Isn't that a fab title?

    Here's a bit of the blurb on the back cover: "In the ancient oriental lands of the Otori, a young boy is one of the Hidden, a reclusive people who know only the ways of peace"...

  9. goddess: not much of a jackie collins fan, but not worried that is going to affect her status!

    miss: hmm... good title. About faith and healing?

    ali: that sounds awesome! was thinking i would borrow lexi's coyote blue first. but writing that one down!

  10. Mel, that wasn't me, but another Alison. :)
