GRADUATION!! (Grad School)

Thursday, May 8

Caffeine for the Day.........

No one should expect me to be coherent today.

I finished The Host in 8 hours. That time included an hour long conversation with my younger brother for his birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY GOOSE!), phone calls from 4 other friends and a the tiem it took to make my muffin/cookie things. I finished the book in the wee hours of the dawn;. 4 am to be precise.

Now, I am on my second can of coke and trying to figure out what i am going to do when the caffeine stops working. Any suggestions?

My response to the book: I liked it. I plan to read the book again, very slowly. I know there are nuances I missed. Now I know that things end in the way I want, I can focus on the rest of the story. I am continually amazed at the character development in Stephanie Meyers novels; especially how she handles the "bad guys". I refuse to put any spoilers on this site,that is why I have The Forum.

Also in response to repeated requests:

The Ironman was actually really good. I am looking forward to the rest of the Avenger series movies. I did have a small problem watching the first 10 minutes or so. I figure, I know to many people serving in the Middle East to be comfortable with a scene that includes a firefight where American soldiers get killed etc.

I'm glad you liked it :) And no, I haven't finished. I haven't even started! I ran out to grab it on my lunch hour on release day and haven't even cracked it open. Shocking, huh? Maybe this weekend. I guarantee that Breaking Dawn will be a different story ;)
