OMG. It's been over a MONTH since I made a post on this blogamabob thingie? What a slacker!

I suppose the truth of the matter is, I haven't had much to say. Everything's been on a fairly even keel; work's busy, what with it being year-end and all, but not horrible (I love my job, so even bad days really aren't bad); school's done for the semester, and I loved those classes, and I did well in them (an A in both), and I'm enjoying the break and looking forward to next semester; I've been catching up on re-watching Lost seasons 1-5 in preparation for the 6th and final season beginning on February 2nd (as of last night, I'm about 2/3rds of the way through s3, and the Bluray of s5 is on its way); I've also picked my Nintendo DS back up and continued on my way through The Legend of Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass, which is loads of fun and I'm excited about it; and I've also been trying to do some cleaning out, a little at a time, so I don't wind up being the subject of Misery Night Chat on the Facebooks and doing some pleasure reading so my brains don't rot from too much teevee.

Also, I think I've felt guilty for not posting any reviews on my other blog for the Cannonball Read. I've been reading; I read Ragtime and made notes and I just have to do the actual writeup and post it, but I haven't gotten around to it. I'm in the middle of two more books, and have a pile ready for after that. I'm just putting far too much pressure on myself to have some New York Times Book Review to put up, when I don't really need to do that, I think.

So, there are my excuses for not posting. I'm gonna get back to doing it regularly, though, I really am. I enjoy it, and I miss it, and there's no reason for me not to. A new year is coming, and as I've said elsewhere, I don't believe in resolutions, especially those based on an arbitrary point such as a calendar date, but I do believe in deciding to improve myself any old time. I've got books to read, and movies to watch, and I will write about them. So there. (That so there was really more for me than anyone else, by the way.) I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season, and isn't freezing to death like I currently am! Happy No Whining Wednesday, and Happy Aught Ten!

Get busy Missy! I need a good blog to read.

Happy NWW. I have to go run now because Wii fit says I'm fat.

Nice to hear from your camp, AVP.

Glad things are going well.

I completely understand the lack of interesting material about which to post (that whole NOT ending sentences with prepositions makes for some EXTREMELY awkward sentences if you're following the stupid rules). I'm just happy to see you whenever you share tidbits of your life with us!

Also, I can't thank you enough for your OUTSTANDING participation in No Whining Wednesday every week! You kept me going more often than you know. Thank you!

Happy New Year, dearest VonBeav!

Yaaaay! You're back (not that your luminous presence hasn't been seen/felt around other parts of the interwebs)...but it's the bloggy goodness I love the most.And I'm totally with you on being behind with the CBRII reviews...I've read at least 7 books since my last review, but I just can't take the pressure of writing the reviews.
Wishing you an early Happy New Year !

I feel ya. I've had very little to say as well and the confidence is low so the creativity isn't flowing either.

It's nice to hear I'm not the only one reading like a champ (well, maybe not quite 'champ-like' but I'm holdin' my own) but is afraid of the reviews. Darned reviews!

Looking forward to hearing more Miss Beaverplatz/puppet, you know I luv ya!

Okay, so I'm not the only one that feels pressure about writing reviews? Thank the Lard. I look forward to reading more of yours when you get around to it.

Also, it's Mel Gibson's birthday. A digression, I realize.
