Um, so I finished the main body of Neil Gaiman's Sandman series and I'm trying to tell myself to quit reading for at least a bit. 

It's not working.  At all.

I just read The Maze Runner, which I hear is the first in a trilogy, this morning.  

And guess what?  I'm now at Death: The High Cost of Living.

I wonder if Sandman counts as one book?

Yeah, back home, where my heart is.  Been back for a few weeks, and sometimes it feels like I never left.  The biggest difference is that I'm now in a classroom all the time and I know that isn't going to change for a good long while. 

I've been working really hard and it's great, but times come when I do wish work didn't have to be everything. 

Thank goodness for crack and for InuKai.  I actually feel that I want to re-watch all PoT episodes and even try my hand at watching the Chinese take on Tenipuri, how ambitious is that?  I dunno where to start, tho. *smacks head*  What would Inui think of my pitiful data skills?

Oh, and yes, Lyra Belacqua.

I went on Wikipedia today and I found out that Peter Jackson is thinking of making a film adaptation of Temeraire.

*hugs self*

Oh, life, why so sparkly?

The only other thing that would make life sparkle more is if I got my hands on the pret-teh, embossed, original versions of the books.

I'm at my PC, reading Diane Duane.  I have my headphones on and I'm listening to Matchbox 20's take on Time After Time.

Life is so beautiful.  And mine is complete.

I have not been reading anything except Sookie Stackhouse.  Ficcating, LJ reading or (mini)NaNoWriMo-ing does not count since I consider those moral obligations to everybody I love.  I can't live without knowing the latest info from [livejournal.com profile] lafuego , [livejournal.com profile] coffeebased , [livejournal.com profile] delwynmarch  and co.

Now back to Sookie.

Sookie Stackhouse, for those not in the know, is one tough chick.  Summarized as quickly as possible, she is a telepathic barmaid hailing from Bon Temps, northern Louisiana.  The book series she's in is called the Southern Vampire series, of which she is the  main character, though she is not a vampire... at least, not as far as three-quarters of the way into Book 6 out of eight.  She just happens to hang out with a lot of vampires and other supernatural creatures, both of the human and non-human variety.

I have her on ebook.  Why I am straining my eyesight and using up precious electricity instead of just lying in bed reading Twilight/New Moon (which would admittedly be loads more comfortable) is because she's my kind of heroine.  She strikes a chord in every woman who has had to suck it up and do whatever needs to be done, every girl who's been the odd one out, and each woman who's had to lose sleep over lovers past and present.  She has normal worries like I-hope-to-God-I-never-need-insurance, and oh-my-stars-everyone-thinks-I'm-a-freak.  She's had to make her own way, and sometimes that gets to be too much, but there's still enough perspective to be thankful for what's there.  She's the poster girl for all women who would so like to be really bad, but can't because their (grand)mamas taught them better, and those who have bad days and know they'll have to live with it like everyone else.

Sookie Stackhouse, will you marry me?
