Good evening everyone!
As I mentioned before, Ginnie
loaned me her Kindle so that I could read Bel Ami
. I actually think this was a great way to read the book, because I came across several words I didn’t know the meaning of, so I could use the Kindle’s dictionary function to instantly pull up a definition anytime I needed it. The writing didn’t always read so smoothly but I think that’s just a result of the original French being translated into English; some things just get lost in the translation. It’s going to be very interesting to see Rob in this role. Georges is definitely amoral, but then so are all of the other characters in the story. It seems that all of their actions are motivated by some kind of personal gain, whether it is money, social status, career advancement or political influence. Georges is just one shark in a sea full of them. I’ve been watching the movie trailers repeatedly to see if I can identify certain scenes. Based on what I’m seeing, they definitely made some changes from the book to the movie and I’ll be interested to see how they interpreted things.
My trainer invited me to be her guest at the local Chamber of Commerce awards banquet
last Friday. They unveiled the logo
for the city’s new corporate wellness program (which my trainer developed). The décor for the party
was very colorful and the food was really good
too. We had fruit sorbet for dessert but I forgot to take a picture. There was a congressman in attendance as well whom I got to meet and have my picture taken with.Songbird~
Wow another Susan in the HH. I may just stick with your screen name to avoid confusion (it happens to also be the title of one of my favorite fanfics
), or I might adopt Tonise’s SongbirdSusan
. Sorry to hear you have to have surgery for your ear problem. I had my tonsils and adenoids out when I was a toddler, so thankfully I have no memory of it. DarkMuse~
Nice to see you making regular posts again! I don't know if we've been properly introduced or not, but I'm Christina from Florida. It's kind of strange to me that we have so many people with the same name here in the HH (and not just our name but the various Susan's too). Neither of those names is very common, but we seem to have an abundance here. Marielle~
I'm glad you got that lump checked out even though it turned out to be nothing. I had a similar situation about 3 years ago. I went and got a mammogram but it turned out to be just a cyst. The nurse said it had probably been there for a long time and I was only able to feel it now because I had lost so much weight and there was less tissue surrounding it. Fortunately that type of cancer does not run in my family at all. Lynne~
Congrats on LittleMan's first day of school! I actually do have a vague memory of my first day of Kindergarten. I was mad because I wanted my own desk and they had the small round tables instead. Good to hear he's doing well and that he had fun at the birthday party.Susie~ Happy Lexiversary!
You have certainly been a blessing to this place. I’m glad that your knee surgery went well. Hope your recovery stays smooth so you can be ready for HHCon
. Yeah your math is exactly right. I doubt I'll be getting an e-reader anytime soon because of the cost. Honestly I really need a new computer and I should work on getting money together for that. My current one is six years old (ancient in technology terms) and it runs so slow sometimes I want to
Trying to open sites like Robsessed almost crash it. Jaclyn~
So jealous that you have tickets to see Bel Ami already when we don't even have a confirmed release date yet here in the US. I’m sorry about your first photographer falling through (and the reason for his canceling is sad too). I know nothing about arranging flowers but it looks like several of the other sisters have given you some good guidance. I hope it works out and you find something that you’re happy with. Congrats on taking the next step with your dress! I'm sure it (and you) will look beautiful on your special day.Caryn~
It was soooo good to visit with you! I only wish we'd had more time (but you're right that waitress was definitely giving us the eye
). It is too bad that we couldn't get together for BD but there's always BD2 next January. Susie mentioned a video you posted on Facebook? Can you post it here? I'd love to see it. I've looked at the Fire but I'm not a big fan of touchscreens (I prefer buttons) and I like the e-ink format of the other models. I'm only browsing right now though. Maybe I'll change my mind about it later on.
Hey does anybody here watch The Big Bang Theory? I am really starting to get hooked on that show.
Those guys are so funny in such a nerdy way. And I can't get the theme song out of my head.
