Hour 7 down!! 17 hrs to go!



Currently Reading: Songs for a Teenage Nomad - Kim Culbertson
Books Read:

Pages Read this hour: 50
Total Pages Read: 231
Snacks Consumed: Tea! haha 
Quotes Appreciated: "He works in computers and stuff. Actually, I have no idea what Rob does for a living, but I figure he probably has a computer wherever he is working."

"Rob sits in an office all day, he eats boring for breakfast."

The book I'm reading now keep mentioning favorite bands of mine that I thought no one else even knew about  let alone listened to. So every time the main character mentions a favorite band of mine I get really excited and put down my book to explain to my mom who the band is and why it is so exciting that they are mentioned in my book. One time she replied in frustration... "Are we talking or are we reading!!!" and I said "Well I'm obviously talking, I don't know about you!" 

She gave me a bookmark as a RAT present. She mentioned that I could take it out of the plastic, which had never really occurred to me but now that I know it bothers her, I think I'll leave it in the plastic ;) After the talking or reading comment she exclaimed, "I really wish you would take the book mark out of the plastic so you don't look like such a dork." to which I replied, "Says the woman wearing cats and dogs on her body." 

Love you mom :)

  6. Sounds like you and your mom are having a great time! I love that you have a Rory Gilmore quote on your blog - it's one of my favorite shows. BTW, that's impressive you found a pic of a rat on books!

    1. Thank you! I basically live and breathe Gilmore Girls... I would say it's an obsession but if I were being honest, it's a lifestyle. They are a part of me.
