Uh-no. This thread is like a forgotten living dead, lost in the outskirts of Lexytown. Poor threat. Lets try blow some life to it, huh?
So pets and cars didn't take us far. What else kind of small talk is there? The weather? How has everyone's summer been so far?
In Finland it has been pretty equally rainy and sunny. I'd like more warm days. Rain and cold makes me feel like an old lady; makes my bones hurt.
I took a trip to the Southern Finland with the kids in hopes of getting some warm weather (haha, it started raining the next day and it stayed gloomy all the rest of our time there) and spending time with nice people. Well, obviously it was a mistake to go see my family. I am no never talking to my mother anymore. She called my kids insulting names and other crap. I totally had enough of that when I was a kid, she's not ruining my kids' selfesteems too. I had a really bad raugh with her and left. Now she's trying to be like nothing has happened and I can't stand her voice. So I'm ignoring her. Call me a child if you will but only reason I've stand her the past 9 years was because I wanted my kids to have a grandmother. But they're better off without that one. They still have a perfect one right here in our town. JT's mom. Oops. Sorry to burst all too much information. I do that sometimes.. Hey, what do you guys read? Any recommendations on books or fanfic or whatnot?
:D I just read "The prom nights from Hell", five short stories centered on prom night. I'm sure you know it, Stephenie had written one of them. I loved them all. Only flaw with all of them: they were too short. I would have loved to read them all as full books. I plan to read more of those authors now and The Brotherhood-books too and others I've found but just can't remember right now. I'd also love to "go back to my roots" and read more David Eddings again. I used to love his books on my teens when I originally got into books.
Fanfics I've liked.. Wide Awake, of course. And Wingtear makes great La Push-stories. She's also my new friend. First Lexicon-friend I've met in real life. I went to her wedding party week ago saturday. It was great. Awesome people in Åland. Åland is a part of Finland, a big set of islands in the South West of Finland. The boat trip there was dull but everything else was great!
If someone here is into Joan of Arcadia- TV series that crashed and burned, TeeJay and DebMac have written a beautiful, long story about Joan and Adam called Butterflies. It's in fanfic.net. It's mainly pg13 but it has additional chapters that are filled with smut if that's what you're into. It's really great! They really got the characters down!
